Michaela: THIS MORNING IN PROJECT FITNESS, TIME TO FEEL THE BURN AND THE AFTER BURN. YOU KNOW, THOSE MINUTES OR EVEN HOURS POST-WORKOUT WHERE YOU’RE STILL TORCHING CALORIES. STRAP ON A HEART RATE MONITOR AND GET MOVING. WE’RE TAKING YOU TO ORANGE THEORY FITNESS IN CRANSTON. WHEW! MICHAELA! Michaela: GET READY TO WORK. WE REALLY HAVE A GREAT GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT ARE REALLY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT THESE NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS AND THEIR GOALS, THEIR PERSONAL GOALS. SOME OF THEM HAVE PERFORMANCE GOALS IN ADDITION TO WEIGHT LOSS AND WE’RE HERE TO SUPPORT THEM AND PUSH THEM AS FAR AS THEY WANT TO GO. Michaela: AT ORANGE THEORY FITNESS, YOU’LL GET THAT PUSH. WE ARE STARTING OUR WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE. IT STARTS THE 16TH OF THIS MONTH. WE’RE ENROLLING PEOPLE NOW, SO THEY GET SPLIT INTO TEAMS. THEY ARE ASSIGNED A COACH AND THEY GET A TEAM CAPTAIN. Michaela: I HEAR THERE IS A BIG PRIZE. THERE IS. $1,000. THEY DECIDE THE WINNER BASED ON PERCENTAGE OF WEIGHT LOSS AND IT IS DECIDED AT THE END OF FEBRUARY. Michaela: SOME WANT TONE. SOME WANT DEFINITION OR FEEL BETTER ABOUT THEIR WORKOUT. ABSOLUTELY. WE HAVE PEAK PERFORMANCE WEEK COMING UP ON THE NINTH AND THAT IS REALLY OUR FOCUS HERE IS THAT WE’RE GOING TO DO THIS NOW AND THEN DO IT AGAIN IN JUNE AND THEY CAN COMPARE THEIR PERSONAL GOALS, THEIR PERSONAL BEST FROM THAT WEEK TO WHAT THEY GET IN JUNE. AND THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SEE, YOU KNOW, NOT JUST NUMBERS ON A SCALE, NOT JUST MEASUREMENTS OR CLOTHING, HOW MUCH FASTER OR HOW MUCH MORE POWERFUL DID I GET IN THAT AMOUNT OF TIME? Michaela: 60 MINUTES IS ALL YOU NEED. IF YOU ARE AIMING FOR 12 TO 20 MINUTES IN THE ORANGE ZONE. THE PACES, THAT’S WHAT I CALL OUT AS CUES TO THE PEOPLE ON THE TREADMILL. IT SHOULD BE A CHALLENGING BUT DOABLE PACE. A PACE YOU CAN HOLD ON TO FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES. Michaela: THREE, TWO, ONE. BASE PACE. ROWERS, IF YOU ARE IN GREEN ON THAT O.T.V. SCREEN, THEN THIS IS YOUR BASE PACE ON THE ROWER TODAY. ALL RIGHT, TREADMILLS. LET’S BRING YOU TO BASE PACE FOR THE FIRST TIME TODAY. MY POWER WALKERS, THAT IS A 1% TO 3% INCLINE. PUSH PACE, THAT IS WHEN WE ASK YOU TO GET UNCOMFORTABLE. AND THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS. THAT IS WHERE YOU EARN THAT AFTERBURN AND GET INTO THE ORANGE ZONE. THIS IS A NICE IF I ASK YOU A QUESTION YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GIVE A SHORT ANSWER BUT WON’T WANT TO ELABORATE. Michaela: BECAUSE IT’S TOUGH. AND FINALLY, THE ALL-OUT WHERE YOU GIVE IT EVERYTHING YOU GOT. THAT IS A FULL SPRINT. IF I ASKED YOU A QUESTION, YOU CAN GIVE ME A YES OR NO, THAT’S ABOUT IT. Michaela: THE BENEFITS GO BEYOND THE SCALE. WE HAVE PEOPLE TELL THANK YOU THEY HAD INSOMNIA BEFORE THEY STARTED WORKING THOUGHT MUCH AND NOW THEY SLEEP BETTER. THEY’RE ABLE TO PLAY WITH THEIR KIDS, CAN KEEP UP WITH THEM. THEIR BLOOD PRESSURE IS BETTER. THEIR CHOLESTEROL IS BETTER. WE HAVE PEOPLE COME IN WITH PREDIABETES THAT NO LONGER NEED THEIR MEDICATION. AS A COACH, THAT GIVES YOU THE WARM AND FUZZIES AND THAT KEEPS YOU GOING ON A LONG DAY. Michaela: IT REALLY WAS A GREAT CLASS. I THINK WE NEED TO GET WILL AND BRENDAN IN THERE, TOO. AS YOU SAW, THIS CLASS IS REALLY FOR EVERYONE. IF YOU ARE A WALKER, YOU JUST ADJUST INCLINE. RUNNERS, ADJUST YOUR SPEED. AND EVERYTHING IS NUMBERED SO
