Orangetheory Fitness, the energizing and fast-growing national fitness studio, announced its official grand opening in downtown Santa Monica on Friday, March 27. Hailed by The New York Times as “the best one-hour workout in the country” and featured in Men’s Health’s “Best 2015 Gyms,” Orangetheory offers total body, heart-rate monitored workouts that have helped tens of thousands of members lose weight, get toned and meet fitness goals in a short amount of time.

Orangetheory provides 60-minute, five-zone, heart-rate monitored interval training led by skilled personal trainers. Participants use a variety of equipment, including treadmills, rowing machines, TRX® suspension training and free weights, burning an average of 500 to 800 calories when combining the workout with the “after burn” – an increased metabolic rate for 24 to 36 hours after the workout. The result is the Orange Effect – increased muscle endurance, strength and power, and if desired, tremendous weight loss.

The Santa Monica Pier and the Ferrigno family fitness dynasty have teamed up to present a free six-week wellness program on the Pier called Hey There Muscles – Lean Fitness by FerrignoFIT, offering a complete overhaul of mind, body, and spirit with classes focused on creating lean muscle and healthy living and eating habits.

Following the overwhelming success of the Santa Monica Pier Paddleboard Race & Ocean Festival and weekly ROGA (free running + yoga classes), Santa Monica locals demanded another unique fitness program on the Pier, and the Hulk and his family delivered. Hey There Muscles was designed by the Ferrigno family and their team of dietitians and workout gurus to be a 360-health experience from mind to muscle.

The classes are a free way to shake off a Friday night and discover muscles that have been hiding, perhaps for years.

Bad Ass America isn’t just the challenge of your life, it’s a lifestyle of challenges, the heart of which is the ultimate test of your strength, endurance, agility, and mental toughness, the Bad Ass Race. At a Bad Ass America event, you’ll be pushed to your limits and beyond in a mud filled obstacle course unlike any other.

1098388_533336200054004_1229224464_n

The distance, obstacles, and terrain are all designed to assault you on every level, to push you past your breaking point so you must power through by sheer force of will. When you cross the finish line you’ll find yourself forever changed by the accomplishment, and by discovering just how much heart you really have. You’ll carry this achievement with you as you train, eat, and live, all the way to your next Bad Ass Race. So if you’re ready to step outside of your comfort zone, experience an adrenalin rush like no other, and take your existence to the next level, sign up for a Bad Ass America Race right now!

Now that we’ve got the inspiring, motivational, blah blah f*cking blah description out of the way, let’s talk Bad Ass America in real people language. First and foremost, there’s a challenge. A knock down, drag out, fun as hell obstacle course that’ll make you run, jump, climb, crawl, lift, and slosh your way to the finish line. It’ll be brutal, but it’ll be awesome. During the course you’ll smile, laugh, make friends, curse the friends who dragged you into this torture, and absolutely feel like a Bad Ass. Once it’s over, eat some food, drink some drinks, and have a little fun with the other Bad Asses that ran or came to watch and cheer you on.

As for the “lifestyle” word they use, they mean it. They want you to stop thinking like an average person and start thinking like a Bad Ass when it comes to fitnessnutrition, and living. Their goal is to get you training like an athlete, eating for results, and taking on new challenges every day, all while having a good f*cking time. Don’t worry, they’ll give you plenty of suggestions and will always set an example by living the Bad Ass life.
