Owner Marc Kaplan opened his Walpole Orangetheory Fitness franchise in 2017. A leader in boutique fitness, this high-intensity training gym uses heart rate monitoring technology to help members track their performance and get the most out of their workout. Orangetheory offers classes that combine cardio, strength training, and other exercise techniques designed to help members see results.
This year, in response to COVID-19, the gym developed a robust online program making virtual workouts available to members and prospective members every day. In addition to these classes, Marc's coaching staff hosted live workouts through social media, held outdoor sessions, and have stayed in touch with members throughout the pandemic to maintain the strong community the business has achieved over its last three years.
