Burn for YOU this Valentine’s Day

We’re focusing on love at Orangetheory Fitness South Anchorage as we get ready to open. Celebrate Valentine’s Day the right way by trying out this “fitting” recipe for self-love and heart health.

Dim the lights and crank up the romance, because this Valentine’s Day is going to be the Best. One. Yet!

It doesn’t matter whether your Facebook page says “Single,” “In a relationship,” or “It’s complicated,” because this year it’s all about focusing on the number one person in your life: YOU.

We’re excited to start helping you with your fitness goals every time you burn calories with us when we open our Orangetheory Fitness studio here in South Anchorgae, Alaska—and we’re sure you have some amazing goals! But we’d like to ask you to add this very important goal to your list: Loving yourself.

Loving yourself and making an investment in your heart’s health will affect your mood and ultimately benefit all aspects of your life. The science behind the mood benefits of exercise mean that the Orangetheory Fitness we’re about to open will a place where you can destress, relieve anxiety, and battle even the slightest trace of depression. When you begin to push yourself to the Orange Zone (your fat-burning heart rate zone at Orangetheory Fitness), you’ll start to see that YOU are the one in control of your own life. You’re capable of anything you set your mind to and deserve all the love in the world.

We want you to believe it as much as we do. Follow our Recipe for Self-Love and Heart-Health, and you’ll be on the rose-lined path to burning for YOU—for Valentine’s Day, and for life!

OTF South Anchorage's Recipe to Self-Love and Heart-Health:

Step 1:

Set goals and get in the mindset to start compete with yourself. At Orangetheory Fitness South Anchorage you’ll be wearing a heart-rate monitor and can watch your performance stats in real-time on screens throughout the studio. By keeping a close eye on your “splat stats,” you can aim to beat your personal best in every session. Instead of wasting time comparing yourself to others, focus on being a better you every single day.

Step 2:

Treat yourself to some new workout threads! This is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to help motivate you and keep you focused on your physical goals. But be sure to save a spot in your closet for some cool OTF gear—we know you’ll look awesome in orange! ;)

Step 3:

Try a new healthy recipe. Cooking is another way to feel accomplished, especially if you’ve learned how to prepare a new dish—and healthy, guilt-free eating will help you feel good about yourself. You can also spice things up in the kitchen by trying a different, healthy spin on a dish you’ve already learned how to prepare.

Step 4:

Get serious about your sleep routine. Sometimes we get so caught up in our busy lives that we forget how important that REM time really is. Sleep deprivation can cause weight gain and lead to chronic health problems like high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Give your fitness journey a head start by getting enough sleep.

Step 5:

Seek balance. Trust us, we get that you’re busy! But all work and no play is no way to live. Your 60-minute workout at Orangetheory Fitness South Anchorage will be a great way to lock in some well-deserved “me” time and have fun while working on a better you. Every workout is different, and with great music and a tight-knit group of peers working toward the same goals, you’ll never dread your workouts again. And we bet you can find even more ways to make sure you’re giving yourself time to do the things YOU love, for no one but YOU.

Step 6:

Stop being so hard on yourself. In other words: Chocolate!! (What kind of Valentine’s Day blog would this be without chocolate?) Chocolate and other cheat foods happen, so don’t beat yourself up about it. No reason to make yourself feel bad for the occasional indulgence. Sometimes cravings even happen for a reason. Did you know that dark chocolate stimulates the production of endorphins and is thought to be good for your brain? It also contains flavonoids that can help lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol. Yum! Just remember—moderation is key.

Step 7:

Give back. Contributing to something of value to your community can really make you feel good about yourself and help you feel like you’re part of something important. OTF Nation is proud to be partnering up with Augie’s Quest in its pledge to raise one million dollars to help find a cure for ALS. With two ways to donate, freebies for members who donate, prizes for top studios, and a 90-minute “Augiethon” workout, Orangetheory Fitness members across the nation are ready to start burning for a cure. We can’t wait to get in on the action once we open!

Still fresh into 2017 and with Valentine’s Day on the mind, now is the perfect time to get focused on your heart-healthy journey. Commit to loving yourself by signing up today: http://bit.ly/2h39fAn.
