Increase the Burn this Winter


Christmas is right around the corner, and 2019 will be here before we know it. The days are getting shorter–yet busier–and the holidays can throw us off of our routines. However, with the right focus and motivation, combined with the best tips, you can heat things up and increase the BURN this winter—starting NOW.

By starting to burn even more now, you’ll look and feel your best in time for Christmas, for all your family and friends to see. Not to mention, the stress of all those family gatherings and travels that often weighs you down. Burning calories at Orangetheory is a great way to spend time on you and burn away that stress.

New Year’s resolutions are great, but why wait? Every day is an opportunity to start working on a new you. If you push yourself and spend time at Orangetheory Fitness Towne Center just one more day a week (and not even a whole day—just 60 minutes), imagine the difference it will make!

Get Orange
Amid ham and pie galore, burning calories for up to 36 hours after your session means that if you schedule classes before holidays, you can continue burning during those big holiday feasts.

Another benefit of spending more time in the Orange Zone during the holidays? You’ll get to spend time with your Fit Fam during this beautiful season.

But, you already know your healthy lifestyle doesn’t end when you leave the Orange Zone. Here are some tips to help you burn more than ever this holiday season.

  1. Stay Active. In Winter, our inclination is to go into hibernation mode with the remote and our favorite comfort food, but curbing that habit can make reaching your fitness goals much easier. Colder weather is the perfect opportunity to warm up by getting active. Why not put your Orangetheory training to the test and sign up for your first 5K? We’ve seen how you push in class. We know you can do it! Another fun idea? Take a quick weekend getaway to explore a new city. Get outside, walk around, and see it all. Ice skate at an outdoor rink downtown, or go kayaking through a tropical paradise.
  2. Eat Smart. Don’t worry, we’re not telling you to ditch the pie or any of the holiday staples. But going all out is better saved for your sessions at Orangetheory Towne Center than for dinner and dessert. It’s all about balance and moderation–and remembering how much better you feel when you don’t stuff yourself. And if you find yourself reaching day in and day out for high-calorie treats like egg nog, a quick search on your smartphone can help you find dozens of healthy alternatives that mimic the real deal.
  3. Involve the Family. The holidays are about being with family. Go on a group walk after dinner to enjoy the crisp air and keep the conversation going with loved ones; it will help you fight the food coma and get your metabolism going.

Even better? Make your family part of your Fit Fam at Orangetheory Fitness Towne Center. Give them a call at (225) 424-5000 to get set up with a free session, and start burning for your future.
