Orangetheory Fitness Weight Loss Challenge Winner
 Drops 37 Pounds in Six Weeks, Wins $2,500
“Revolutionary Orange Effect” burns on average 900 calories/session

Long Island, NY… June 6, 2012… Orangetheory Fitness, a one-of-a-kind, group personal training workout that has gained an ardent following since opening in East Northport, New York in late March recently presented Joe Mammolito with a $2,500 check as the winner of its first Six Week Weight Loss Challenge. The 40-year-old resident of East Northport dropped 37 pounds, just over 13% of his body weight.   Second place winner Arlene Mohr, 49, also of East Northport, lost 28 pounds and 12.9% in body weight. Both winners received a variety of prizes for their efforts, as well as the priceless health benefits and satisfaction that come from a significant weight loss.

“The Six Week Weight Loss Challenge offers dramatic proof of the phenomenal results that can be obtained by regular Orangetheory Fitness workouts and a proper diet,” notes Elyse Pedersen, owner of the East Northport studio and area developer for Orangetheory Fitness. “Orangetheory Fitness offers a proven, one-of-a-kind, kick-butt workout that combines the best aspects of group fitness and personal training.”

“Participants in the Weight Loss Challenge attend a minimum of three 60-minute Orangetheory Fitness group classes per week and maintain a healthy diet. Tracking food intake is an important key to achieving weight loss goals and Orangetheory works with participants to keep a weekly food log throughout the 6-week challenge. The goal is to show the greatest improvement over six weeks, measured by percentage of weight loss.

“Our group classes are highly motivating and geared to the individual,” Pedersen explains.  “Individual heart rates are carefully monitored throughout the session, and our trainers use this information to inspire each participant to push past plateaus and work toward their individual goals. An Orangetheory Fitness workout combines the best aspects and proven benefits of group and personal training like structure, support, energy, endurance and accountability.” Backed by the science of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), Orangetheory’s 60-minute group personal training workout is broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training.  Each participant’s individual heart-rate is monitored throughout the session, which is designed to keep heart rates in a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy. Led by experienced, accredited personal trainers, participants use a variety of equipment including treadmills, rowing machines, TRX Suspension Training® and free weights, burning an average of 900 calories per session. The result is the Orange Effect –more energy, visible toning and extra calorie burn for up to 36 hours post-workout.

“Orangetheory Fitness typically hosts a 6 Week Challenge each time a new studio opens, and other shorter contest throughout the year. Past winners have lost as much as 48 pounds in six weeks.  Contest specifics are available at the studio. In the two years since the Orangetheory Fitness concept debuted in South Florida, the franchise has grown to support 25 thriving studios in five states. Additional studios are planned for the New York metro area including New York City.  The East Northport Orangetheory Fitness studio is located at 4000 Jericho Turnpike.  Exercisers can book a session online at www.orangetheoryfitness.com or by calling 631-499-4500.
