First Orangetheory Fitness Studio opening in Greenville in December
Monday, October 15, 2018
Greenville residents will be able to experience workouts at the first Orangetheory Fitness studio in the area, slated to open this December.
The studio provides science-based, technology-tracked and coach-inspired workouts designed to produce results. The small group, total-body fitness classes are led by professional trainers and are appropriate for all people regardless of age, shape, size or ability.
The new studio will be in the La Promenade shopping center at 518 Greenville Blvd. S, Suite D. Prior to the December opening, a temporary pre-sales site is located at 420 B-1 Arlington Boulevard in the Arlington Village shopping center, where locals can stop by to get more information and sign up for limited-time discounted memberships.
The workout — which includes custom-engineered treadmills, water rowing machines, mini bands, TRX suspension straps and free weights — was created by physiologist Ellen Latham and is backed by a medical advisory board. During the hour-long classes, each participant wears a heart-rate monitor to track progress in real time and guide their intensity level. The goal is to reach excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC, resulting in burning additional calories for up to 36 hours after the workout.
“I’ve always been active and was even an athlete in college, but finding Orangetheory Fitness was the moment I knew I’d found my forever workout,” said Kristie Shifflette, area developer and local franchise owner. “Orangetheory Fitness is about energizing lives. We provide more than just a good sweat or results in a mirror — our trifecta of science, coaching and technology transforms people from the inside out providing more health, more confidence and, ultimately, more life.”
Greenville is one of 23 Orangetheory Fitness studios open in North Carolina with two more opening later this year. This growth also is happening across the country and around the globe, with the 1,000th studio opening its doors earlier this year. The franchise has a goal of operating 2,500 studios and supporting 2.5 million members by 2020.
