Orangetheory Fitness, a fast-growing fitness franchise with locations across North America, will open eight new studios across the GTA before the end of the year including an east end Toronto location at Danforth and Pape. 

Designed to appeal across the spectrum from fitness newbie to workout junkie, Orangetheory Fitness focuses on group personal training workouts broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training.

Orangetheory's heart-rate-monitored training is designed to maintain a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy.

Led by skilled personal trainers, participants use a variety of equipment including treadmills, rowing machines, TRX suspension training and free weights. Workouts burn an average of 900 calories including “afterburn” effect, which Orangetheory claims increases metabolism for up to 24 to 36 hours post-workout.

By the end of 2016, GTA studios will include Parklawn/Lakeshore, Danforth/Pape, Oakville, Mississauga, Burlington, North York, Richmond Hill, Brampton and Whitby. In 2017, there will be three more studios in Toronto, as well as additional studios in Mississauga, Richmond Hill, Oakville and Vaughan.
