With a dozen stu­dios in Austin, Orangetheory’s con­cept of in­ter­val train­ing is clearly catch­ing on. Its classes are based on the phys­i­o­log­i­cal prin­ci­ple known as ex­cess post-ex­er­cise oxy­gen con­sump­tion, so its 60-minute classes are all about in­ter­vals and the use of heart-rate mon­i­tors, so you can still burn calo­ries up to 36 hours af­ter class. Var­i­ous lo­ca­tions; or­angeth­e­o­ry­fit­
