10 / 10 / 10
Oranj 10/10/10 is a 60-minute fitness class that is a fusion of Cycle and Full Body Overhaul Bootcamp. We move in intervals of 10 minutes on a stationary bike and 10 minutes of toning exercises. This enables your heart rate to stay high and in the fat burning zone for the entire class! Leave feeling slightly shaky, really sweaty and high on endorphins! It is a great class for those new to cycle because the cycling portions are only 10 minutes at a time. This class is suitable for all fitness levels.
HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. Traditional HIIT workouts do not exceed 30 minutes, however Oranj HIIT Bootcamps are 45min – 60 min in length. They include a safe, low intensity warm up, and blocks of HIIT exercises that vary in duration. We provide a lower intensity core section at the end of class and a cool down and stretch. Our HIIT Bootcamps are taught as a large group where everyone will do the same exercises and work in their individual stations. This class is suitable for all levels; however, due to this being a high intensity class where students are asked to perform in spurts of 100%, it is recommended that beginners pay close attention and follow the instructor’s modifications provided.
Oranj Tabata Bootcamp is a fusion of full body bootcamp and HIIT that utilizes Tabata interval training. Tabata training is one of the most popular forms of high-intensity interval training (HIIT). The differences between HIIT and Tabata are that rest and work periods in Tabata are shorter compared to HIIT, and Tabata pushes the limit on the percentage of your maximum heart rate. A Tabata set is high intensity full effort for 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of recovery. This same exercise sequence is performed for 8 rounds totaling 4 minutes. This class is suitable for all levels. Beginners will be given modifications.

Oranj Barre classes mix elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and functional training into one upbeat full body workout. The moves are choreographed to motivating music and all students do the exercises as one large group.
