New studio opening based on huge demand, offering discounted rates for first time members

Even more Chapel Hill residents can now experience the life-changing workouts at the second Orangetheory Fitness studio in the area, slated to open this December. The studio provides science-based, technology-tracked and coach-inspired workouts designed to produce results from the inside out, giving people a longer, more vibrant life. The small group, total-body fitness classes are led by professional trainers and are appropriate for all people regardless of age, shape, size or ability.

The new studio will be in the Timberlyne shopping center at 1129 Weaver Dairy Rd., Suite AA, Chapel Hill, NC 27514. Prior to the December opening, a temporary pre-sales site is located at 1129 Weaver Dairy, Suite N, where locals can stop by now to get more information and sign up for limited-time only discounted memberships. The new studio is opening to accommodate the increased demand for additional classes in the Chapel Hill area in recent years.

The workout – which includes custom-engineered treadmills, water rowing machines, mini bands, TRX suspension straps and free weights – was originally created by physiologist Ellen Latham and is backed by an esteemed Medical Advisory Board. During the hour-long classes, each participant wears a heart-rate monitor to track progress in real time and guide their intensity level. The goal is to reach excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC, resulting in burning additional calories for up to 36 hours after the workout.

“I’ve always been active and was even an athlete in college, but finding Orangetheory Fitness was the moment I knew I’d found my forever workout,” said Kristie Shifflette, area developer and local franchise owner. “Orangetheory Fitness is about energizing lives. We provide more than just a good sweat or results in a mirror – our trifecta of science, coaching and technology transforms people from the inside out providing more health, more confidence and, ultimately, more life!”

The new Chapel Hill studio is one of the 10 Orangetheory Fitness studio open in the Triangle and the 23 in North Carolina. At least Two additional studios are also expected to open in the state this year. This growth is also happening across the country and around the globe, with the 1,000th studio opening its doors earlier this year. The franchise has a goal of operating 2,500 studios and supporting 2.5 million members by 2020.

Memberships are available at the lowest rates now until the studio opens in December and never require a long-term commitment or contract. Those new to Orangetheory interested in locking in the limited-time only discounted membership rate should contact the studio at (919) 636-7761 or visit the Weaver Dairy shopping center pre-sale location.
