The ORANGE Effect

That heart rate monitor around my body is your best friend during an OTF workout.  You want to get used to controlling your heart rate.  More splat points doesn't always mean better performance.

Did you know the goal is ONLY to spend 12-20 minutes of your workout in Zones 4 & 5 ( Orange and Red zones combined ).  By spending the time in those zones, sets yourself up for EPOC……. a fancy way to say that for 36 hours after our workouts you will continue to burn extra calories at a faster rate!  Our goal at OTF with our heart-rate monitored training is designed to keep heart rates in a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy.

As trainers at OTF, we give you all the opportunities to make 12-20 minutes happen in the ORANGE zone!  You got to WANT it.  We provide it, you got to dig deep during those pushes, all-outs, sprint rows, inclines and make it happen.

We as trainers will also ALWAYS give you plenty of time to recover and bring your heart rate back down to the green zone ( where the majority of your workout takes place: 25-35 mins ) with base paces, walking, and slower movements on the weight floor.

Come see me at OTF and lets get you in tune with your heart rate!  I teach Monday and Wednesday mornings at 5:00, 6:15 and 7:30.  Call to set up your Free Class.  801.896.9058
