Orangetheory Fitness Barrie | The Fournier Experience

Have you been wondering about the orange bikes around town? If you already live in Barrie or if you spent some time strolling the streets of Barrie this past fall, you may have noticed an orange bike or two. The orange was pretty hard to miss!

The fitness trend that seems to be taking North America by storm, just opened in our neck of the woods at the end of 2015 and without a doubt, Orangetheory Fitness Barrie is our new favourite sweaty spot in town!

We asked Orangetheory Fitness Barrie to share who they are, what they do and why they love being a part of this community, here’s what they said:

This week’s Friday Feature: Orangetheory Fitness Barrie

Orangetheory Fitness provides every work out with a professional fitness coach to ensure that you are not overtraining or undertraining.  Orangetheory Fitness combines science and technology to achieve your fitness goals.  Each class is written by our Physiologists, it changes every day, and tested first to ensure our Theory.

The physiological theory behind the Orangetheory workout is known as “Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption,” or EPOC. By providing you with a heart-rate monitor, we can monitor your 5-zone interval training sessions.  During the 60-minute workout, you will perform multiple intervals designed to produce 12 to 20 minutes of training at 84% or higher of your maximum heart rate.  This program design produces workout “afterburn” effect, which is an increased metabolic rate for 24 to 36 hours post workout. When combining the amazing workout with EPOC, our clients burn an average of 500 to 1000 calories.

Orangetheory will produce increased muscle Endurance, Strength and Power and if desired, tremendous weight loss. With energetic music, a talented group of fitness coaches and a high-energy studio, you have the recipe for a workout that produces BIG and LASTING results at a fraction of the cost of a personal Trainer.

Our studio is located in the heart of Downtown Barrie right across from the Spirit Catcher. The owner’s Sean and Catherine discovered the franchise while residing in Phoenix Arizona and totally fell in love with this fitness concept.  “Barrie was our first choice when it was time to choose a location for our franchise.  Combined with the fact that Barrie is growing, the community still keeps the small town feel and the residents are so welcoming.  Barrie’s waterfront is such an asset for this downtown core and was very appealing for us”.

Please come and visit and don’t forget your first session is free!
