Orangetheory Fitness opening first Harrisburg-area location this summer
Orangetheory Fitness, a fast-growing fitness franchise, is expected to open a studio this summer at High Pointe Commons in Swatara Township.
The Florida-based fitness chain's studios offer 60-minute workout sessions that are divided into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training.
Franchise locations have been popping up all over the country, including in the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh areas. The Harrisburg-area studio will be the first in the central part of Pennsylvania, but locations already are in the works for the Camp Hill and State College areas in 2018, company officials said.
Construction at High Pointe began this week and the facility is expected to open by mid-to-late July. Pre-opening promotions tied to the company's monthly membership plans have already launched.
The fitness chain has the support of television sports reporter Erin Andrews, according to the company's website. It also is the official fitness center of the New York Yankees.
