Back in June we caught wind of something fun and unique coming to the Apache Mall in Rochester. At that time it felt like all we were reporting on were businesses leaving the mall instead of entering, so you can imagine our surprise when we'd heard of a brand new gym would be opening there.

But it's not just any gym, it's a "one-of-a-kind, group personal training workout that's designed to maintain a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy." That's what Orangetheory Fitness is all about, and later this summer I was there to witness people lining up left and right to sign up in person for their huge membership drive.

Well we've now learned when Orangetheory Fitness will be opening their doors, and that will be Monday, Dec. 3rd!

However, I've been told they're having a VIP Party for all their founding members on Saturday, Nov. 24, and the following week they'll have classes for just those members as well, so keep those dates open if you're ready to burn those initial holiday calories!
