Corporate wellness, how companies help their employees live healthy lives inside and outside of the office, has evolved over the years. From one-size-fits-all, “good enough” solutions to employers understanding the value-creating impact of personalization and community. Meanwhile, a world away, boutique fitness studios were struggling to access the powerful and growing marketplace of corporate wellness.
Enter, Peerfit: the bridge between corporate wellness and these studios, opening a tremendous opportunity for boutique fitness studios to service a market they couldn’t reach before. One power player in the “boutique studio’” space has just lead the way: Orangetheory Fitness™.
With over 1,000 locations worldwide, Orangetheory Fitness is arguably one of the most successful boutique fitness brands. Their desire to access workplace wellness was the catalyst for partnering with Peerfit, a wellness platform that offers flexible fitness to employees.
With this new partnership, Peerfitters in the Jacksonville area (you can look for your local studio here!) can take Orangetheory Fitness classes via their Peerfit dashboard at select locations in their area, even using their Peerfit credits towards unlimited monthly memberships.
“Our partnership with Peerfit means that ‘getting into the Orange’ can now be experienced by thousands in the Jacksonville community who wouldn’t have tried us in the past. Our studios are ready and excited to welcome Peerfit members into our Orange community. If you have never tried an Orangetheory workout, you are in for an incredible experience.”
-Donna Fenchel, Orangetheory Jacksonville
The “theory” behind Orangetheory
Orangetheory Fitness is combining science with a revolutionary fitness experience. The “theory” isn’t just part of their brand name, but it’s a philosophy that its creators have used to completely transform your fitness journey.
In each class, participants use heart rate monitors to gauge their performance. However, they are also measuring something more: reaching the “Orange Zone”, which correlates with your heart rate throughout the class. The goal of reaching this zone signifies the afterburn effect, a post-class calorie burn as a result of having an increased metabolic rate for up to 36 hours after taking a class at Orangetheory.
Each Orangetheory studio is equipped with twelve treadmills, twelve rowing machines, twelve suspension unit systems, and an area specifically for strength: free-weights, benches, and more.
Additionally, each studio is stocked with a shower and locker rooms for your on-the-go needs.
Taking Orangetheory classes with Peerfit
Each drop-in Orangetheory class costs 6 Peerfit credits and is approximately 60 minutes long. *SPECIAL NOTE* If you are a first-timer, Orangetheory requests that you show up about thirty minutes before class starts so they can help you get situated and fill out any waiver forms necessary. Orangetheory classes fill up, and they fill up quick! We recommend signing up for your preferred class about five days beforehand.
