Are you looking for a way to switch up your cross-training? Or do you need motivation to start in the first place? Consider a class at Orangetheory, a 60-minute group interval workout that combines cardio and strength-training with some pretty smart science behind it. Classes are designed to push you into the “Orange Zone,” which translates to 84% or higher of your maximum heart rate, for 12 to 20 minutes of the workout.
This sweet spot allows you to torch calories and increases your metabolism for 24-36 hours after you’re finished. Kat Gunsur, a coach at the La Jolla, CA studio, talked to Women’s Running about what Orangetheory is all about, the secret to the workout’s crazy calorie burn, and what makes the workouts so addictive.
