Will it be too intense?

Can I stack up to the competition?

Will I survive?

These are a few things that might run through your mind before participating in your first fitness challenge at Orangetheory North Andover.

But there are plenty of reasons experienced Orangetheory members keep coming back for more! Orange Nation has learned a few things by joining challenges like our triathlon-inspired Dri-Tri, 8-week Transformation Challenge, and the infamous sequence of scary-good workouts known as Hell Week.

1. You’re capable of rising to a challenge and pushing yourself further.

You never know until you “Tri!” Every Orangetheory member secretly feared their first Dri-Tri, but everyone comes out a winner. The only limits are the ones we create in our minds. Successfully completing fitness challenges helps us push beyond those mental blocks and realize just how much we’re truly capable of.

You might surprise yourself! What changes have you made to your fitness and eating habits since starting the Transformation Challenge? You thought you could only work out 3 or 4 days a week, but suddenly you find yourself in the studio every day to experience each Hell Week workout. As you continue breaking your personal records throughout the year at Orangetheory, we bet you’ll beat your Dri-Tri time next year.

You’re at Orangetheory burning for a better life, and what a better way to push yourself and reach your goals than to step it up and go All Out for one of our fitness challenges?



2. Your Orangetheory North Andover Fit Fam is seriously amazing.

Every fitness challenge is a bonding experience with your fellow members. No one understands the heat of a 2,000 meter row, 300 body weight reps, and a 3.1 mile run on the treads more than that member who was right there, enduring the Dri-Tri with you.

The more you see other members in challenges and team up with them during partner workouts, the more you get to know each other. Before you know it, you’re saying hi and chatting before and after classes, and cheering each other on when you crush another challenge.

And let’s not forget our coaches and staff! They checked in with you on your Transformation Challenge progress, they gave you extra tips and cheered you on as you approached that Dri-Tri finish line, and over time they’ve become as much a friend as a coach. They love seeing you just as much as you love seeing them.

We’re all different, but we’ve all got one big, orange similarity—and we feel awesome about the amazing group we have here at Orangetheory North Andover. You belong here.

As you complete challenges and realize what you’re capable of, you’re doing more outside of the studio, too. Even when you’re not here, Orangetheory is always a part of you, always with you, encouraging you and reminding you that you have the strength to live an incredible life every single day.

4. Your friends are cheering for you, too.

You’ve checked in 100 times and posted a selfie in every Orangetheory outfit you own. It’s nice when a fitness challenge gives us another excuse to “check in” on Facebook or humblebrag on social media—whether it’s posting your Transformation Challenge weigh-in, your Dri-Tri time, or pics rocking that Hell Week shirt you worked so hard for. Your family and friends’ positive comments and support for your healthy, fit lifestyle thanks to Orangetheory are an extra reminder that what you’re doing is truly great.

5. There’s never a dull moment.

You don’t have to worry about getting bored and slipping from your workout routine. Not only is the workout different every day, but the next new fitness challenge is always right around the corner. And we always amp it up to turn every challenge into a true celebration. We can’t wait for the next one!

6. Orangetheory gets easier, yet it keeps challenging you.

The more fitness challenges you complete, the more you realize you CAN do this. You’re physically able to survive Hell Week’s challenging workouts and the powerful row-rep-run sequence of Dri-Tri. Not only did you survive—you totally crushed it!

As you gain confidence, you’ll reach for those heavier weights and pick up the speed on the treads, knowing that someday this will be easier, too. No limits! You’re on the path to greatness and there’s no stopping you!
