ORANGETHEORY FITNESS KICKS OFF NATIONAL WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE ON JAN. 17
Participants Compete to Lose Big to Win $10,000 in Cash and Prizes in Just Six Weeks
Orangetheory Fitness the energizing group interval fitness concept with nearly 50 locations around the nation and six in Arizona, will launch its Six Week National Weight Loss Challenge on January 17, 2013. At the end of the challenge, the top male and female contestants with the highest percentages of weight loss will each win a total of $5,000 cash and prizes.
In 2012, the winner of the national weight loss challenge was from the Chandler, Ariz. studio. Rosemary Van Wolde lost an amazing 42 pounds in six weeks. Van Wolde said she checked out Orangetheory Fitness when it first opened down the street from her home in Chandler.
"You're wearing your heart monitor, and it actually shows you on the screen what you're burning while you're working out, while you're in your fat-burning stage. So it makes you motivated to stay in that stage," said Van Wolde.
Orangetheory Fitness is a one-of-a-kind, group personal training workout broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training. Backed by the science of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), Orangetheory's heart-rate monitored training is designed to keep heart rates in a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy. Led by skilled 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.
Orangetheory Fitness will name two local winners at each studio - one male, one female - and two national winners (one male and one female) will be selected based on best results overall. Twenty-four winners in all will be awarded cash and prizes at the close of the challenge in February.
Participants in the Six Week Weight Loss Challenge attend three 60-minute Orangetheory Fitness sessions per week and eat a balanced meal plan set by an Orangetheory Food Coach. The goal is to show the greatest improvement over six weeks, measured by percentage of weight loss.
"We are extremely excited to kick off the National Weight Loss Challenge here in Arizona at our six Orangetheory Fitness studios," said Becky Renner, Orangetheory Fitness Arizona area developer and co-owner of two studios, Gilbert and Chandler. "There is always an amazing amount of energy at the studios, but these challenges bring that energy and excitement up to a whole new level. Our trainers do a fantastic job motivating our members and really pushing them to go beyond their comfort zone."
