Where to Workout on the Road: Oranj Fitness
With the holidays approaching and people getting ready to travel to visit loved ones, I thought I would expand my “Where to Workout” series to give you a glimpse of what’s in neighbouring cities. Oranj Fitness Airdrie was kind enough to have a few members of the Blog Squad visit their facility to test out a POUND class, which you can read about here.
About Oranj Fitness
Oranj Fitness is a group fitness studio based in Alberta and BC. Their values focus on empowerment, entrepreneurship, balance, fun and goal setting. Their Airdrie location is bright and beautiful with a ton of amenities and everything you could need before or after your workout. The change rooms are stocked with makeup removal products, salon quality hair products, including top of the line blow driers, straighteners and curling irons. I’m pretty sure my jaw dropped when I saw the Chi straightener. There are free lockers, bags for your wet, sweaty clothes, and inspiration messages on the walls. Oh yeah, all the bathroom stalls have chandeliers. I should mention too, that all of the rooms, from the three different studios to the bathrooms are named after inspirational movers and shakers. I love that!
On top of the beautiful, bright and spacious studios and change rooms, there’s a big child minding area, a smoothie bar and a retail area featuring big name activewear, casual wear and they even had some beautiful holiday dresses on display. We’re talking Lorna Jane, Lululemon, Alo Yoga and more. It’s guaranteed that if you need/want it for your workout, Oranj Fitness most likely has it.
About the Classes
I don’t even know where to begin here. Oranj Fitness offers approximately 115 group fitness classes every week. That’s insane! From yoga, to TRX, barre, tabata, dance and of course POUND, there’s a little something for everyone. They even have a studio dedicated to hot yoga and barre. The one downside is there are no descriptions for any of their classes online, so you’ll have to pop into the studio and chat with them about what all the classes entail or be open to a new surprise! They have something for everyone no matter what your fitness preferences are and aim to provide a way to fit fitness into your busy lifestyles.

What I Loved Most
I have a bit of an affair with bright, beautiful spaces with unique lighting but I think more than that, I really loved all the details at this studio. The names of the rooms, the amenities in the change rooms, and the friendliness of the staff all fosters a space that makes it easy to continue to coming back to.
