Featured in The New York Times as an effective new plateau-busting workout, Orangetheory Fitness uses heart-rate-monitored interval exercise and group personal training to maximize calorie burn.

Chanhassen, MN – Orangetheory Fitness, the energizing group interval fitness concept that is sweeping the nation, will open its newest location on October 31 in Chanhassen, MN. Grand opening festivities include fun, food, giveaways and a few surprises, as well as the kick-off to Orangetheory Fitness’   “6-Week Weight Loss Challenge.” The participants with the highest percent of weight loss will walk away with $2,500.

“Whether you participate in the Challenge or join to experience the best 60-minute workout in the country, you’ll get toned, lose inches and gain energy,” said Ellen Latham, fitness-expert and creator of the Orangetheory Fitness workout. “The success of our program speaks for itself when you see our contestants and members. The 6-Week Weight Loss Challenge has become a celebrated aspect of opening our new studio locations, and it’s the perfect way to experience amazing results, with the added bonus of a chance at a cash prize.”

Participants in the Weight Loss Challenge attend three 60-minute Orangetheory Fitness sessions per week. The goal is to show the greatest improvement over six weeks, measured by percentage of weight loss. Participation is limited.

A results-focused workout like no other

By design, the Orangetheory workout uses heart-rate-monitored interval training and short bursts of exercise to maximize the Orange Effect – which adds extra caloric burn for up to 36 hours after the workout. Participants burn an average of 900 calories per 60-minute class, hailed by the New York Times as an effective new plateau-busting workout.

The new Chanhassen Orangetheory Fitness Studio is located at 14918 Pines Boulevard. To learn more about Orangetheory Fitness, enter the Challenge or register as a member, visit or call the Chanhassen studio directly.
