Win $2,500 Just by Losing Weight at New Fitness Center on Long Island BRIDAL BEAUTY

Jump to Comments

Orangetheory Fitness, a one-of-a-kind, group personal training workout opens here on Long Island on Friday, March 16 in East Northport, the first in the metro region.  In the two years since the Orangetheory Fitness concept debuted in South Florida, the franchise has grown to support 25 thriving studios in four states.

As of March 10 and through the Orangetheory Fitness grand opening THIS Friday, Long Island brides and grooms (and bridal parties, of course!) are  invited to stop by and experience a complementary workout.   Special pre-sale and founder’s rate memberships will be available prior to the grand opening.

And check this out — In conjunction with its grand opening, Orangetheory Fitness will also launch its first 6 Week Weight Loss Challenge. At the end of the challenge, the contestant with the highest percentage of weight loss will win $2,500 in cash and prizes.  Orangetheory Fitness typically hosts a 6 Week Challenge each time a new studio opens, and other shorter contest throughout the year. Past winners have lost as much as 48 pounds in six weeks.  Contest specifics are available at the studio.

So what’s special about this fitness center?

Backed by the science of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), Orangetheory’s 60-minute group personal training workout is broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training.  Each participant’s individual heart-rate is monitored throughout the session, which is designed to keep heart rates in a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy.  Led by experienced, accredited personal trainers, participants use a variety of equipment including treadmills, rowing machines, TRX Suspension Training® and free weights, burning an average of 900 calories per session. The result is the Orange Effect – more energy, visible toning and extra calorie burn for up to 36 hours post-workout.

For more info, call 631-499-4500.  The Orangetheory Fitness studio is located at 4000 Jericho Turnpike, East Northport.
