Orangetheory Fitness, a chain of exercise studios across the U.S. and Canada that use heart-rate-monitored interval training and group personal training to maximize calorie burn, will open its first Michigan location in Canton next week.
“Our plan is to bring this workout to many regions throughout Michigan and open three Orangetheory Fitness studios in the state within a year, says Chad Smith, co-owner and head trainer of the Canton location. Smith, who competed for the USA Track & Field Team for more than 10 years, was previously the head strength and conditioning coach for the Los Angeles Kings hockey team.
Led by professional trainers, the Orangetheory fitness concept is broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training, says Smith, who is a Michigan native. Its heart-rate-monitored training is designed to keep heart rates in a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy.
The 3,000-square-foot facility will include 12 treadmills, 12 rowing machines, suspension training and weights, and computer screens linked to heart monitors to track target workout zones. The Canton studio, at 41818 Ford Rd., will open April 25.
