ORANGE You Glad We're Friends1:39 PM
...and that I'm older than you ;)The Bestest had to work, so she couldn't celebrate my birthday with me and everyone else on Saturday. So, instead she invited me out for dinner to celebrate, which rapidly turned into us taking a workout class at Orange Theory Fitness in Natomas, then grabbing dinner.
So random, but the Bestest and I always try new workout places and classes together. We have taken probably every 24 hour workout class possible together, at about almost every location in Sacramento, for starters. We've both experienced Midtown Strength & Conditioning, Fitness Rangers, and Team Ride together. So it was fitting and also our style to try a new spot together. She's actually a member here currently, so it wasn't a new experience for her. The Lil has also been going to one of these for awhile now, since she lives within walking distance to one.
That being said, I was still a little snarky about going here. Just seems boughie and a little yuppie for my liking. Even though both the Lil and the Bestest workout here, I still had this thought.
Base. Push. All Out. Fitness, meet science. The idea of Orangetheory is this: a 60-minute workout designed to push you into the Orange Zone. This creates "Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption," or EPOC. It's what burns calories after your workout and gives you noticeable, lasting results with Orangetheory Fitness.
All that being said, I won't be signing up as a paid member. It was a good workout, but just not how I'd prefer to work out. It's a little more than what I pay at Midtown, so it would have had to W-O-W me for me to commit to it. Also, I believe you have to sign up for classes on-line or via the app beforehand, I'm not into that. However, they are tech based and also have an app that you can check and track your workouts, which is cool -- even if the Bestest has the hardest time using her app and logging in ;)
