Orangetheory Fitness offers affordable motivation to stay fit

When Becky Renner was in college competing in athletics, she always enjoyed working out in group settings. The camaraderie Renner felt with other athletes combined with a sense of accountability made exercising as a group both motivating and fun. To provide other people with the same benefits of group training that she enjoyed for years, Renner was inspired to open Orangetheory Fitness, a facility that specializes in group personal training at an affordable price. Renner is area developer for Orangetheory Fitness in the state of Arizona, and owns two of the six locations that are open throughout the East Valley. “My husband has 20 years of experience in the fitness industry and I have a background in marketing, so we just jumped at the chance,” says Renner, who is also a mom of three boys and one girl ages 3 to 9. In addition to being more affordable,

Renner says the group personal training offered at Orangetheory Fitness helps to hold everyone in the group accountable, which in turn allows them reach their fitness goals more quickly. “It’s just more fun to exercise as a group, and no one is wandering around or leaving after 20 minutes thinking ‘I had better go home and make dinner.’” Each session at Orangetheory Fitness combines cardio and strength training, with everyone working at their own pace and ability, Renner says. “When they are on the treadmill,

it doesn’t matter if they are a walker, power walker, jogger or runner. Everyone will get a great cardio workout.” The workouts are also heart-monitor based, Renner notes, with everyone wearing a monitor that is checked frequently throughout the session. “We shoot for everyone to spend about 12 to 20 minutes of the one-hour session in what we call the ‘orange zone,’ where they are at 85% of their maximum heart rate,” Renner says. “If they can do this, they will burn calories for the next 36 hours after the session is over. So if they come in every other day for a one-hour session, they will be burning calories all of the time.” The weight training portion of the group session involves using equipment like dumbbells, medicine balls and lots of body weight exercises, Renner says. To keep their heart rates elevated, people will also spend time on a water rowing machine. The group personal training really helps people stay motivated and excited about exercising, Renner adds, while also being gentler on the budget. “Personal trainers typically charge around $50 to $70 an hour, but here it works out to about $10 per session,” Renner says. “The group personal training just brings energy and creates excitement. It makes people enjoy working out, and they never have to guess what they will do in their workout that day.” By the end of the year, Renner says

a total of 12 Orangetheory Fitness locations should be open throughout the state. Eventually, she hopes to help open 30 locations and own 10 of them. In addition to helping people lose weight and feel better, Renner says she enjoys the flexibility her job allows. “My day is so flexible—I can be mom before and after school and then work in the middle of the school day. It has just been so awesome.” Orangetheory Fitness is located at 1900 W. Germann Rd., Suite 6 in Chandler, and 3426 E Baseline Rd., Suite 118 on the Gilbert/Mesa border.

Solar energy powers Aspire Kids Sports Center

You don’t want to sleep through this

June 1 grand opening is for all ages As the sounds of children jumping, tumbling and somersaulting echo through the Aspire Kids Sports Center at 50 S. Hearthstone Way in Chandler, solar panels silently soak in the sun on the roof of the 32,000-square-foot facility. With the help of incentives from the SRP EarthWise Solar Program, owners Scott and Dona Barclay have invested in the 100-kilowatt system, which will provide approximately half of the center’s electricity needs. “We have had it in our plans to put solar on our building since we built Aspire,” says Scott Barclay. “We feel living in Arizona, it makes sense to utilize the God-given resources provided by the sun. We have had solar water heating on our own home since the 1980s. The technology has now advanced to make it more affordable, so we decided now was the time to act.” The facility is equipped with gymnastics equipment, a heated indoor swimming pool, dance and martial arts room and a preschool gym. It is also the home and training center of the Arizona State University men’s gymnastics team. “Aspire is another example of business owners who are making investments in the future of environmentally, emission-free, renewable energy,” says Lori Singleton, director of SRP Program Operations.

New urgent care center opens

The new Dignity Health Urgent Care facility is now open, from noon to 9 p.m., every day of the year including holidays at 20750 N. John Wayne Pkwy. in the Shops at Maricopa Fiesta in Maricopa. The facility also offers a Call Ahead Care program beginning at 7 a.m. Patients can call 520-233-2460, leave their contact information and wait at home until the facility opens. Staff will call when it is their turn to come in to see the doctor. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to care for the residents of Maricopa,” says Jean Dorame, site director. “As part of the Dignity Health continuum of care, each of our patients will be seen by a board-certified-eligible doctor, a practice not commonly found at other urgent care centers.”

In addition to physicians, registered nurses will treat patients of all ages with non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries that need immediate attention. Ailments ranging from a bad cough or serious sprain to a case of the flu or asthma are treated. The center also provides $25 sports and camp physicals. “Our staff is also able to provide on-site radiology and laboratory services,” says Rick Swearingen, D.O., medical director for Dignity Health Urgent Care in Ahwatukee and Maricopa. “And if a patient’s condition is worse than anticipated, staff will coordinate their seamless transfer to Chandler Regional Medical Center where their co-pay will be applied to their emergency room visit.” There is also an urgent care facility in Gilbert, at 1501 N.
