Keep burning calories for up to 36 hours after your workout!
We’ve all been there. We join a gym and promise ourselves we are going to stick with it, but after a few months; we see little results, get bored and give up or jump to the next fad.
This is because the routine eventually becomes repetitive and unchallenging. If you don’t enjoy your workout, you will not be able to conjure up the motivation to keep with it.
That’s why we love Orange Theory Fitness so much, they are constantly changing up the routines and it’s always a fun challenge to try to stay in the ‘Orange’ Zone and try to improve every time. It can definitely feel intimidating at first, but once you take your first class you realize that you can go at your own pace and there are modifications for each move.
The goal is to stay in the ‘Orange’ zone for 12 to 20 minutes to optimize fat burning and produces what exercise scientists call the “EPOC” effect, excess post-exercise oxygen consumption— known as the afterburn. This allows your body to keep burning calories for up to 36 hours after your workout!
