Orangetheory Fitness in Oxford, MS has started a popular fitness alternative for Ole Miss students and residents alike, reaching over 400 members in the community since its' opening in August 2015. Members are offered a variety of classes that incorporate different workouts each day, which helps trainees to avoid plateauing or getting bored of the sessions. Orangetheory members burn an average of 500 to 1000 calories per workout session, called “Orange 60.” 

The 60-minute sessions are lead by trainers and incorporate the science of three heart-rate based exercises involving indoor rowing, treadmill interval training, and weight training blocks. The heart-rate monitored training is designed to keep each member’s heart rate in a target zone that stimulates metabolism. This, “Orange Zone,” creates “Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption,” or EPOC. “The ultimate goal of the workout is to be in the orange zone for 12-20 minutes, that’s 84% and above of your max heart rate. That’s where you see your best results and you get our after-burn, where you burn calories for up to 36 hours after the class is over,” said Orangetheory employee, Kati Tannehill.
