Greater Manchester has become home to the first Orangetheory Fitness studio outside of London.
The global fitness brand launched in Florida in 2010 and has since expanded to over 1,000 studios in 17 countries.
Altrincham is the first town outside of London to become home to Orangetheory Fitness, with the brand looking to open 40 new studios across the Midlands and Northern England by 2026.
Orangetheory Fitness classes offer a one-hour, full-body workout, focused on training endurance, strength and power.
Backed by the science of Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (or EPOC), Orangetheory’s heart-rate-monitored-training is designed to ‘maintain a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy, which results in burning more calories post-workout than traditional exercise.’
Jason Zavasnik, franchise director of Orangetheory Fitness Midlands & Northern England, said: “This is a very exciting start for us as we begin our journey across the Midlands and Northern England.
“The studio has been well received by all of our amazing founder members so far and created a real buzz in the Altrincham area, so we can’t wait to open our doors to the public and continue to grow the Orangetheory community.”
Adam Bowerman, studio manager of Orangetheory Fitness Altrincham said: “We identified Altrincham early on as the ideal place for our first studio outside of London, so it’s fantastic to see everything come together.
“We wanted to throw a party to announce our opening, and everyone is welcome, whether you’re already a member, considering signing up or just curious to come in and have a look round the studio – come celebrate with us!”
