triFABB KICKED BUTT at Orangetheory Fitness!

trifabborangetheory

Just wanted to share a little recap of our rather unconventional meetup at Orangetheory Fitness Morrisville today!

This was the first time we’d every done a meetup like this and it was so much fun. The photo above is just some of the members of triFABB who came to the meetup and workout!

If you haven’t heard of Orangetheory Fitness, it’s basically (in summary) a REALLY intense workout that mixes up cardio and strength training but really focuses on customizing the workout to YOUR particular skill level based on your heart rate. You wear a heart rate monitor throughout the workout and you’re able to see on a screen in the room what “zone” you’re in… whether you’re in the cardio zone, the fat burning zone, or the peak zone, etc.

We all agreed it was one of THE most fun, MOST intense, and most challenging workouts we’d ever done.

Lindsay of Poppy Daily even said, “I work out with a trainer 2-3x a week and have for a while and this was, by far, the best workout I’ve ever done.” 

We could not agree more!! It was CRAZY hard and we were all totally SPENT by the time it was over, but we felt awesome.

Our trainer, Danny, had so much energy and really kept us going and motivated through the whole thing.

On a separate side note, members of #triFABB even brought canned foods to the event to help collect canned food for the Foodbank of the Triangle!

It was really an awesome afternoon!

If you’re in the Triangle and looking to really get an intense workout, you should totally check out Orangetheory fitness and tell them triFABB sent you!!
