One Orangetheory Fitness workout is designed to burn up to 9x the amount of fat calories you typically burn in a normal day. This is accomplished by each participant wearing a heart rate monitor and working at their individual “Orange Zone” during a group training session where all participants receive aggregate workout summaries via email to track progress and results.
