I know I missed posting my weekly workouts for last week, but rest assured I got in 5 days at Orangetheory Fitness, but there’s one day that truly deserved its own post -
A bit of a backstory….Coach Fox, our head trainer, came to Georgia from Tampa, Florida. He was a very popular (and fantastic) coach at the New Tampa OTF studio and we’re very lucky to have him at ours now! Something that he started at that studio was a Midnight Madness class held on the last Friday of each month. It became so popular that they had a waiting list for it! He wanted to be the first studio in Atlanta to have a Midnight Madness class, and we definitely succeeded with that feat.
We had around 36 people who came out to participate!
The class actually started at around 11 p.m. He said in the past when it started at midnight and was over at 1 a.m. people didn’t want to go home…and he had class to teach the next morning! So while most members of OTF around the country (or at least on the east coast) were settling into bed, the OTF Cumming studio was just getting started with their workout!
We had 3 stations – the treadmill, rowers/TRX straps, and body weight/bench. We spent about 6-8 minutes at each station with different exercises each round. I believe we did each a total of 2-3 times. It was crazy! I wish I had written down what all we did! Mountain climbers, Bosu burpees, tricep dips, and elevated push ups all come to my mind!
Coach Fox, Coach Allie, and Coach DJ all walked around to make sure we were using the correct form and encouraged us to stay strong.
I sported my yellow neon with pink swirl PRO Compression socks for the occasion :)
We did squats, bicep curls, and tricep extensions on the rowers during our last round…definitely feeling the burn the whole time
Before we really got going on the treadmill, had to take an #OTFSelfie!
Workout is DONE…and we’re still smiling!!!
After the workout was over, the staff had a champagne toast waiting for us in the lobby as well as lots of tasty (and healthy) snacks for a post workout treat!
It was nice to sit down and chat with some of the amazing new friends I’ve made just by coming to the gym :) The picture on the left is myself and Coach Allie, and on the right are myself, Janna, Erin, Coach Allie, and Jenny
I think I finally drug myself home at around 1 a.m., but this was truly a FANTASTIC event put on by the amazing staff we have at OTF Cumming. I’m already looking forward to the next one in April! (even though it looks like I’ll be running a 5k the next morning LOL)
I still love coming to the studio 4-5 days a week and getting my sweat on with some great friends and amazing trainers. If you’re curious about Orangetheory Fitness, check out their website and see if there’s a location near you. You can go in for a free session and see what it’s all about!
Have you ever done a workout at night?
Until next time,
