OTF is a full-body, interval-training program that utilizes a heart rate monitor and offers unique workouts for every one hour session. The setting is intimate, the lighting dark, and the music pumps and motivates while a knowledgeable trainer is watching and pushing everyone to “empty their tanks,” and leave it all there. During a one hour session, time will be spent on the treadmill, rowing, and also doing strength and core training. No two workouts are alike, and some will focus more on endurance or strength or some combination. You never know. What you will know, is you worked hard and will burn an average of 500-1000 calories per session.
The workout typically results in increasing ones metabolic rate for 24 to 36 hours after a workout! This phenomena is one OTF markets, and with good reason. It is called “Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption,” or EPOC. It is designed right into the workout, where they aim to, “produce 12 to 20 minutes of training at 84% or higher of your maximum heart rate.” If your heart rate is in that zone (they call it the Orange zone, clever!) for 12 to 20 minutes, you’re also able to enjoy additional calories burnt for hours following the workout.
The classes are conveniently scheduled through an app on your phone. After your workout, a report is emailed to you, showing you the amount of calories burnt, and what your heart rate did throughout a given workout. All of it serves as great motivation. So does attending with friends and family…bringing out a little of the competitive spirit!
The (2) locations in the Capital District are:
3333 Consaul Rd, Schenectady, NY 12304
