As part of the resort’s overarching mind-and-body wellness programming, Orangetheory Fitness is among the resort’s curated Artist-in-Residence series, from Paddle Diva stand-up paddle boarding to KarmaVibes and more. This premiere Orangetheory pop-in will be an exclusive experience at Boca Beach Health Club, a private OTF-designed facility with oceanfront views, all the fitness organization’s amenities and more. There will be two-to-three classes available daily, led by Orangetheory’s most elite coaches, with an intimate group of 16 people per session so guests and members can take advantage of the brand’s promise to deliver “More Life™” through each science-backed one-hour class. With over 1,000 studios worldwide, Orangetheory makes it easy to maintain a healthy routine whiles traveling - resort guests will be able to pop-in for the world’s best one-hour workout before lounging beachside or kickstart a day of spa treatments at Waldorf Astoria Spa, Boca Raton Resort & Club’s world-class spa.
“We are thrilled to now offer our guests and members one of the leading fitness programs in the world – especially those that are looking for healthy travel options. Since Orangetheory was founded here in Boca Raton and is known for its outstanding reputation and innovative methods, we knew the organization would be the perfect fit for a fitness partnership,” says John Tolbert, President and Managing Director of Boca Raton Resort & Club. “By adding Orangetheory to our existing list of ever-growing wellness experiences, we are able to further evolve our comprehensive wellness programming here at the Resort.”
“The accessibility we offer through our studios across the globe is a huge benefit for our members. As we continue to grow globally, we love the idea of partnering with an iconic local resort on our first ever pop-in studio right here in Boca where the company was founded,” says Kevin Keith, Chief Brand Officer for Orangetheory Fitness.
Each Orangetheory class is designed to produce results from the inside out – giving people a longer, more vibrant life. The full body workout utilizes treadmills, rowers, weights and more to help members elevate their heart rate to the “Orange Zone” or 84-91 percent of their estimated maximum heart rate. Twelve minutes in the Orange zone raises your heart rate and makes you burn more calories for up to 36 hours. When wearing the OTbeat heart-rate monitors, real-time results are displayed on large screens in the studio. Intensity of the workout is based on individual heart rate zones, making the session effective for all fitness levels.
Classes will be available to resort guests for $30 per class and club members for $20 per class. To sign up, guests can call: 561.408.0003. Lastly, guests can take the experience home by purchasing custom, limited edition active wear and accessories in the Boca Beach Health Club and the Boca Breeze boutique.
