Orangetheory Fitness Review: Hungry Runner’s Take On Heart Rate Training

Orangetheory Fitness

For a health and fitness blogger living in New York City, I’m a very slow adopter of new workouts, so it’s only fitting that it’s taken me this long to finally try Orangetheory Fitness: a group personal training workout class that promises to keep your body burning calories for up to 36 hours after the workout — or as they call it, “the afterburn.”

Staying cool while running during the summer has a lot to do with wearing the right gear.

Before I began my marathon training at the end of July, it was abnormally warm here in New York. We were experiencing early-morning 80-degree temperatures that relentlessly rose to near 100 degrees by midday. Oh, and it was disgustingly humid, too!

This is the story. Last week I was supposed to attend another workout at the Reebok Fit Hub in Union Square, like I did two weeks ago for Tara Stiles’ yoga class. (All of the Reebok FitHub locations host free fitness classes for everyone throughout the year!)

This time the workout was with Spartan Race CEO Joe DeSena. Unfortunately, my schedule ended up changing and I wasn’t able to attend the workout. However, Reebok was kind enough to let me hold on to the gear they had sent for the event, so long as I agreed to share it here on my blog, which was what I was going to do anyway!

If it were possible, all of my runs would take place on rugged trails shaded by trees and surrounded by wildlife. However, I live in New York City, so instead most of my runs takes place on paved cement and surrounded by a jungle of tall concrete buildings. I guess you could compare the city dwellers roaming the streets to wildlife at least.
