Everyone works out harder when other people are around, especially if those people are a yoga class full of fit women in Spandex. Taking group motivation to the next level: Orangetheory Fitness.
A nationwide group-workout gym now opening in CO for the first time, Orangetheory offers hour-long, high-energy workouts that'll get your competitive juices flowing by strapping your chest with a pod that not only monitors your heart rate, but displays it on a TV that your trainer and your up-to-24 classmates can watch, making truTV super jealous about your viewership size. Best your colleagues via:
BOSU Training: Pushups, chest presses, and squats on a 2ft-tall yoga ball that's been cut in half will “challenge your balance and coordination” and improve your core strength, so now you'll just need to figure out how to use your core to point out that "the beach is that way".
TRX Suspension Trainer: Promising to test the “stability of your core and spine” (and that they will come find you if you hide in the bathroom after hearing they're going to test your spine's stability), this strap-suspension system mainly targets the back, bis, and tris.
Indo-Row Machine: Developed by a world rowing champ, this resistance trainer will burn massive amounts of calories without putting too much stress on your joints, which makes sense, as aren't those things supposed to relieve stress?
Reebok Workout Benches: Used for legwork or as an upper-body tool for chest presses, seated bicep curls, shoulder presses, and modified pushups, though if you're still doing those... you should probably grab your Spandex and head to the nearest yoga studio.
