Chapel Hill, NC, October 14, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Orangetheory Fitness, the energizing group interval fitness concept that is sweeping the nation, will officially open its second North Carolina location in Chapel Hill with a grand opening VIP party Oct. 30 from 5 to 8 p.m. Located in the popular Meadowmont Village shopping center, the new studio will host the official kickoff to classes with a celebration featuring music, food, drinks, demos and other fun activities for all attendees. The VIP party will also be the final opportunity for prospective new members to get reduced membership rates.

Chapel Hill is the second of at least five Orangetheory Fitness locations planned to open in the Triangle area in the next year. The first, in Morrisville, opened in January and has exceeded expectations as members continue to experience what the New York Times hails as an effective plateau-busting workout. During classes, participants wear heart-rate-monitors as they go through interval training and short bursts of exercise designed to maximize the Orange Effect, which adds extra caloric burn for up to 36 hours after the workout. Participants can burn up to 1,000 calories per 60-minute class.

“Chapel Hill residents will now have the effective and unique heart-rate monitored Orangetheory Fitness workout right in their neighborhood,” says Kristie Shifflette, owner of both the Chapel Hill and Morrisville Orangetheory Fitness locations. “Orangetheory Fitness is a premium product and an amazing workout for any fitness level. Our trainers work closely with each member to reach their personal goals. We are so excited to open this second studio so even more Triangle residents can experience the Orange Effect and start seeing real, life-changing results.”

The VIP party will be the perfect time for members, guests and neighbors to see the brand new location and meet the trainers. The celebration will take place in the studio as well as in the grassy common area in front of the studio. It will feature a number of giveaways and raffles; a selection of complimentary food, wine and beer; workout demos; health screenings and more. There is no charge to attend the event or participate in onsite activities. Community members interested in attending the event who are not already Orangetheory Fitness members should contact the studio at (919) 883-9424. All are welcome to attend.

The new Chapel Hill studio is located next to ONE Restaurant in Meadowmont Village, at 104 Meadowmont Village Circle, Chapel Hill, NC 27517. Memberships are available at discounted founders’ rates until Oct. 30 and never require a long-term commitment or contract.
