If you have not heard of Orangetheory Fitness, it is a cardio and strength-based gym that aims to work all of your muscle groups. It is a HIIT-based workout that is made to boost your metabolism and burn a healthy amount of calories. Some of the workouts include rowing, running, or walking on the treadmill and weight and bodyweight exercises on the floor. If this sounds like the work out for you, check out their website here. They offer a free first class for first-time visitors so that if you end up not liking the style, you are not bound into any membership!
