COMMUNITY, COMMITMENT & FITNESS
Orangetheory Fitness in Newport celebrated their two year anniversary on January 7th. Owners Stephanie and Chase Whitehead have watched their business grow and become an integral part of our community. We asked Stephanie and Chase to share their thoughts on the past two years.
FTM: How has OTF grown, changed and become part of the community?
Over the past two years Orangetheory has grown immensely both on the local and global scale. The Newport studio was the first location in the area to open in January 2015. There are now five studios in the Northern KY/Cincinnati Area, with two more on the way. Globally, OTF has expanded to over 700 locations in the United states and have planned locations in 17 other countries.
Locally, we have been able to give back to charities and organizations around us. In November, we donated over 700 food items to the Campbell County Neighborhood Center, and in December we adopted a local family for Christmas. We enjoying being involved and giving back to the community.FTM: Reflections on the past two years?
We are constantly amazed by our members and continuously grateful that they choose to workout with us in Newport. Their commitment and dedication to working towards a more healthy and active lifestyle is admirable. We now have over 700 members in Newport and over 100 have been with us since we opened our doors! We have a wonderful team of fitness professionals and associates working together to provide an unforgettable experience.FTM: What's in OTF's future?
As a leader in the fitness industry Orangetheory is constantly improving and you can expect increased use of technology in the workout from a state of the art heart rate monitoring system, to top end fitness equipment, and a fitness program that constantly delivers results.
At our Newport location we have a big year planned with many studio events and collaborations. We will be opening our third location, Orangetheory Fitness Florence, in late 2018/early 2019.
What makes Orangetheory's fitness program and philosophy different is the integration of group accountability and the structure it provides both physically and mentally. We are more likely to stick with a workout - and get results - if we feel connected to a community of people with like-minded goals. Enthusiastic gym trainers are always there to work with you on modifications and to help you find your most effective workout.
