Weekly “Sweaty” Events

We are attending & promoting some fabulous events and classes this week!

 ******************************************

Tuesday, February 17

7581 Sawmill Road
Dublin, OH 43016
(614) 356-9999

Several of our runners want to PR for spring races, so speed training and strength training will be an integral part of our preparation.  Where can we get both?  At Orange Theory Fitness!  Known as “The best one hour workout in the country,” the workout consists of intervals with the treadmill, rower and TRX system.

Their website states, “The idea of OrangeTheory is simple:  a 60-minute workout designed to push you into the Orange Zone. This creates Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption, or EPOC. It’s what burns calories after your workout and gives you noticeable, lasting results.”

We’ll give you an update and let you know how we did.
