Orangetheory Fitness Morrisville and Chapel Hill Studios Launch Six-Week Weight Loss Challenge
Results-Driven Competition Featuring High-Intensity Interval Training Classes Begins Jan. 15, With a Chance to Win $10,000 in Cash
The annual Weight Loss Challenge kicks off Jan. 15 and ends Feb. 26 at participating studios. There is a $25 entry fee and initial weigh-ins take place Jan. 12 through 14. Both the Morrisville and Chapel Hill studios are accepting a limited number of participants, so those interested in competing should sign up as soon as possible.
“Last year we saw major transformations during the Weight Loss Challenge and it’s great to see everyone encouraging each other along the way,” said Orangetheory Fitness local franchise owner Kristie Shifflette. “The best part is watching people discover what their bodies are capable of that they never dreamed possible. The Challenge ultimately comes down to the individual’s success and we simply enable you to achieve a new found you. While there are two winners and cash prizes, we believe every person that participates in the Challenge is a winner in the end.”
Last year’s Weight Loss Challenge local winners in Morrisville were Barry Swanner, who lost a total of 39 pounds, and Kathy Knapp, who lost 27 pounds. This will be Chapel Hill’s inaugural competition as the studio just opened its doors this past October.
Weight Loss Challenge participants must attend a minimum of three 60-minute Orangetheory Fitness sessions per week (no more than one class per day), with the goal of showing the greatest improvement over the course of the contest. There will be mid-point weigh-ins and pictures taken before, during and after the competition. Final weigh-ins and pictures will be taken Feb. 25 and 26. At the end of the challenge, a celebration will be held at the two participating Triangle locations to announce the male and female winners, determined by percentage of weight loss throughout the six weeks.
Members can sign-up for the Weight Loss Challenge by talking to the front desk staff at their home studio. Non-members must join and register by Jan. 12 to participate.

About Orangetheory Fitness
Orangetheory Fitness is a one-of-a-kind group personal training workout broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training. Backed by the science of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, Orangetheory Fitness’ heart-rate-monitored training is designed to keep heart rates in a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy. Led by skilled instructors, participants use a variety of equipment including treadmills, rowing machines, SBT Suspension Training and free weights, burning up to 1,000 calories per class. The result is the Orange Effect – more energy, visible toning and extra calorie burn for up to 36 hours post-workout.
