PRLog - June 6, 2012 - HUNTINGTON, N.Y. -- Orangetheory Fitness, a one-of-a-kind, group personal training workout that has gained an ardent following since opening in East Northport, New York in late March recently presented Joe Mammolito with a $2,500 check as the winner of its first Six Week Weight Loss Challenge. The 40-year-old resident of East Northport dropped 37 pounds, just over 13% of his body weight. Second place winner Arlene Mohr, 49, also of East Northport, lost 28 pounds and 12.9% in body weight. Both winners received a variety of prizes for their efforts, as well as the priceless health benefits and satisfaction that come from a significant weight loss.
“The Six Week Weight Loss Challenge offers dramatic proof of the phenomenal results that can be obtained by regular Orangetheory Fitness workouts and a proper diet,” notes Elyse Pedersen, owner of the East Northport studio and area developer for Orangetheory Fitness. “Orangetheory Fitness offers a proven, one-of-a-kind, kick-butt workout that combines the best aspects of group fitness and personal training.”
“Participants in the Weight Loss Challenge attend a minimum of three 60-minute Orangetheory Fitness group classes per week and maintain a healthy diet. Tracking food intake is an important key to achieving weight loss goals and Orangetheory works with participants to keep a weekly food log throughout the 6-week challenge. The goal is to show the greatest improvement over six weeks, measured by percentage of weight loss.
“Our group classes are highly motivating and geared to the individual,”
“Orangetheory Fitness typically hosts a 6 Week Challenge each time a new studio opens, and other shorter contest throughout the year. Past winners have lost as much as 48 pounds in six weeks. Contest specifics are available at the studio. In the two years since the Orangetheory Fitness concept debuted in South Florida, the franchise has grown to support 25 thriving studios in five states. Additional studios are planned for the New York metro area including New York City. The East Northport Orangetheory Fitness studio is located at 4000 Jericho Turnpike.
