Once you experience the rush of adrenaline from an Orangetheory Fitness (OTF) class, you’ll understand why it’s still one of the most popular group fitness options around. Not only does Orangetheory offer a challenging workout, but it also cultivates a fast-paced environment designed to motivate and challenge you. Orangetheory Fitness is known for its 60-minute interval-based workouts, said to improve your endurancestrength, and overall fitness. Given this glossy reputation, you may be wondering how much Orangetheory costs. Here’s everything you need to know about Orangetheory Fitness pricing before signing up yourself, from class packs to memberships.

Before we get into Orangetheory pricing, let’s break down what you’re really paying for. A signature Orangetheory class is an hour-long, interval-based workout split into three sections. You spend a portion of the workout on the rowing machine, then get the choice between the treadmill, bike, or strider (similar to an elliptical). The third section involves floor work, where you strength train using TRX suspension straps and free weights. The workout is friendly to all levels, including beginners.

Throughout the workout, Orangetheory relies on heart-rate-based metrics. The goal of any sweat session at OTF is to train within the “Orange Zone” — aka 84-91 percent of your maximum heart rate — for 12 minutes or more. This is said to improve your endurance and overall fitness, and during class at Orangetheory, it earns you “Splat Points.” Sound like something you want to try? Here’s everything you need to know for your wallet’s sake, including how much an Orangetheory membership costs, Orangetheory pricing details, and whether you’ll need to purchase any additional gear.

Orangetheory Pricing and Memberships

Orangetheory now boasts over 1,500 locations in all 50 US states and 24 countries, not to mention a streaming platform called Orangetheory Live. Consequently, pricing is partially based on location. There’s a range of Orangetheory membership packages to choose from, including Class Packs, Basic, Elite, and Premier, but overall, Orangetheory prices vary depending on where you live.

To help you get an idea of the prices, an Orangetheory representative shared some averages below. Keep in mind that these are just estimates — for more specific pricing, it’s best to connect with your local studio rep to discuss a plan that works for you. You can also find your nearest Orangetheory location by plugging your zip code into the Orangetheory website to see the prices at the locations closest to you.

Orangetheory Membership Prices:

Orangetheory prices are higher at premium locations, such as Manhattan, Brooklyn, Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, Austin, and Dallas. For example, in Manhattan, you may have to shell out $199 for an Elite membership and a cool $279 for the Premier. A unique benefit, however, is that even if you sign up with a specific location, you can use your OTF membership at any location in the country — though there may be a surcharge depending on which location you’re visiting.

No matter what level you go for, no annual contract is involved, and you can take additional classes at a discounted rate once you purchase a membership. You also get free access to the Orangetheory streaming platform (Orangetheory Live) as part of your membership. If you’re not totally convinced, you can always try an introductory class for free to see how you like it.

Orangetheory prices might seem steep, but remember that you’re getting access to a plethora of fitness machines you likely don’t have in your home, plus real-time biofeedback, encouragement from top-notch coaches, and a boutique gym atmosphere (which can be a nice break from a big-box gym). Plus, there are tons of exciting community workout events like the Orangetheory DriTri that you get access to if you’re a member.

Orangetheory also offers “digital joins,” meaning you can become a member (or simply inquire about the costs) by signing up online instead of having to physically go to the gym. Participating studio pages will have the option to “Join Now,” and they’ll walk you through the different Orangetheory membership and package options, prices, as well as member benefits.

Additional Orangetheory Costs to Keep In Mind

In addition to the membership fees, there’s another Orangetheory cost to keep in mind. To make the most of Orangetheory’s workouts — and get into the Orange Zone — you’ll need a heart-rate monitor. OTF uses its own heart-rate monitors to connect to the displays during class as well as to the Orangetheory app.

You can rent a heart-rate monitor for $5 to $10 per class or purchase one for $119. It can be worn on your wrist, forearm, or bicep. Without an Orangetheory heart-rate monitor, you can use your own smartwatch, fitness trackeror heart-rate monitor to keep track of your heart rate; however, unfortunately, non-OTF devices won’t connect to earn you Splat Points, display your data during class, or log your data in the Orangetheory app. Because the competitive, data-driven aspect of Orangetheory classes is such a big draw, you’ll probably want to splurge for an OTF monitor.
