The Old Town Alexandria, Virginia area will soon have another option for those that want to get fit. Orangetheory Fitness, a fitness franchise company now in 45 states, will soon be opening its first franchise right in the heart of Old Town. They are coming to 1101 King Street in Alexandria.
Orangetheory features one-hour classes that use heart monitors for interval training on equipment such as treadmills and rowing machines. The company also touts a science-based program called “excess post-exercise oxygen consumption,” which it says stimulates metabolism, increases energy and encourages extra calorie burning after the workout.
Orangetheory was started in Fort Lauderdale in 2010 and now has 300 locations. This location would be the sixth Northern Virginia location for the company.
I have reached out to the franchisee to find out when they are opening and where the studio would be located in the 1101 King Street building. I am thinking the large empty space at the corner of King & Henry Street (see below). As soon as I know more, readers will be the first to know.
