In addition to the new Bradlee studio opening soon, boutique workout studio Orangetheory Fitness is expanding in the Eisenhower East neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia with a new studio opening soon at the Meridian apartment complex at Eisenhower Station. The studio will be located at 2351 Eisenhower Avenue right across from the Eisenhower Avenue Metro Station.
Orangetheory Fitness offers group, 60-minute workout classes split into intervals of cardio (treadmill, bike, rowing) and strength training (TRX, free weights).
Members are given a heart rate monitor at the start of each class and the goal is to spend 12 minutes or more in the “orange zone,” which is 84% to 91% of your maximum heart rate. (The latter is calculated based on your age, weight, and height).
The longer you can endure the orange zone, the more EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption) you achieve. As a result, your body will continue to burn calories long after your workout ends. Orangetheory Fitness says after burn can last up to 36 hours post-workout with some participants.
