ORANGETHEORY FITNESS OPENS AT STREETS OF ST. CHARLES
(Peoria, IL, September 2, 2016) – The newest Orangetheory Fitness in the United States opened at Streets of St. Charles on Thursday, September 1, 2016. The studio is owned and operated by St. Charles Studio, LLC, and is the fourth location in the St. Louis metropolitan area for the fast-growing fitness franchise. The event was celebrated with a ribbon cutting event Thursday evening.
Orangetheory began holding preview classes for members in August. The 60-minute sessions are designed around the philosophy of moving participants into the Orange Zone, creating “Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption,” or EPOC which helps burn calories after each workout. The sessions are guided by an instructor, and include three components: treadmill interval training blocks, indoor rowing and weight room or resistance training blocks. All fitness levels are welcome, and various membership packages are available.
“We were inspired to locate our newest studio at Streets of St. Charles because of the energy and sense of community that’s been built here,” said Chris Jaeger, Studio Manager for Orangetheory’s Streets of St. Charles location. “Those who work here, live here, or visit the property on a regular basis have been attracted to our unique approach to fitness. We signed a significant number of new members well in advance of the opening, and that’s growing each day as people continue to see and experience what we have to offer. We’ve already become one of the marquis studios in the country.”
Orangetheory Fitness is a spacious and modern studio, occupying 3,000 square feet of space on Beale Street. The location features a variety of equipment, and coaches work with each member to develop a workout plan to meet their weight loss or performance goals.
“Orangetheory Fitness has been a welcome addition to the Streets of St. Charles Community.” said Kathleen Brill, Vice President, Director of Leasing for Cullinan Properties. “We’ve committed to providing unique, new experiences here at the property, and Orangetheory delivers that. Residents, tenants, and visitors to the property are providing great feedback about this new addition, and the Orangetheory following continues to grow.”
Orangetheory Fitness is just one of several new tenants opening at Streets of St. Charles. Firebirds Wood Fired Grill and Think Pink Nail Salon are also holding grand openings in September. This follows this summer’s openings of PF Chang’s and Sole & Blues, as well as the groundbreaking and first deck pour ceremony for the Drury Inn and Suites.
