Good advice. You're probably right. I'm probably just overthinking it. I think I'll just join. I'm starting to look like a burning candle lol Thanks Jon. What's your stats?

I know they offer a free trial class and some studios are nice enough to let you try a week free. See if you like it first. I can be honest with you and say whatever you decide, make sure you truly enjoy it first before comitting, because reality is all workouts work.

For example, i tried solider fit, and i hated every minute of it. Not the actual workout, but i hated being yelled at or punished for going at my own pace. The one nice thing about orange theory is that it is month to month, if you don’t like it.

I say, find a cheap gym. Or find a safe running route. For about the same price, or less, you can hook up with a trainer on your own schedule and make follow-up appointments when needed.

Nooooo. It’s hard to explain. But’s definitely not cross fit. Cross fit would be like body building, strictly weights and hard core weights that focuses on form.

Orange theory doesn’t do that. It’s a mix of cardio and some weights. It’s broken down into 3 blocks and they have heart rate monitors and coaches to guide you through each workout. It is technically considered a HIIT workout due to the amounts of cardio.

Thanks!

I’ve already done all of that. I had surgery a few years ago and i posted this back in 2018. I was just asking because they opened one up literally in my building. I just prefer a gym that tends to offer everything because i get bored easily. I figured it would be a nice addition to mix things up.

What you describe is what I see in a couple CrossFits. The one I observe weekly, because I do an activity that rents a space inside a CrossFit, they don't use weights at all, just member after the class dismisses.

Before I tore my shoulder I did an orange theory type workout called training mate. No treadmills cause I don’t run. I did 10 classes a week and looked incredible. Paid $225 a month and it was worth every penny. I won’t do OTF cause of the treadmills but they do offer less cardio slots. I have popcorn lung so I can’t run but my friends who run love it.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

        Congratulations. I remember that day for me: May 13, 2014. I thought it'd never happen (especially after a 7-day stall at 200.2!!), but it was a "Hallelujah" day! Now...stay on program so you can stay in Onederland. After five years, especially...when ghrelin returns. So stay on track.

        CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! Onederland is a GREAT place to be.
