In conjuction with the grand opening, Orangetheory Fitness will also launch its first 6 Week Weight Loss Challenge, which comes with a grand prizeof $2,500 and other goodies. The weight loss challenges are a hit among new members.
“Spots are already filling up fast for the Weight Loss Challenge,” said Commack resident Elyse Pedersen, owner of the East Northport studio. “What makes Orangetheory Fitness such a runaway success are the phenomenal results possible. It’s a one-of-a-kind, kick-butt workout that combines the best aspects of group fitness and personal training.”

Trainers work with participants to reach individual goals.
