When Ellen Latham developed Orangetheory Fitness, she knew she needed passionate trainers and ample equipment, but her greatest tool would be plain science. Drawing on her background as a degreed physiologist, as well as a personal trainer, TV fitness personality, and exercise columnist, she created a regimen to induce excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC for short.
By blasting different muscle groups with intense intervals of exercise before performing fatigue-level strength training with free-weights, Latham’s system inspires the body to keep consuming calories well after the workout has ended in an effort to help muscles recover. Classes last 60-minutes, with any given interval lasting between 10- and 30-minutes. Students rotate between treadmills, suspension harnesses, free-weights, and rowing machines, which strengthen arms and cores by simulating the sensation of rowing through a river of hot glue.
