Group workout classes like Orangetheory Fitness are popular for a reason. They offer not only a challenging workout, but a competitive and motivating environment to boost and challenge your fitness level. Orangetheory Fitness, in particular, is known for its hour-long interval-based workouts said to improve your endurance, metabolism, strength, and overall fitness. By now, you've probably heard of the exercise program or come across one of its dedicated class members.

The franchise, which is the brainchild of physiologist Ellen Latham, has exploded since it first opened in 2010. Orangetheory Fitness now boasts more than 1,500 locations in all 50 US states and 24 countries, as well as a streaming platform called Orangetheory Live. If you're interested in trying it out, you're probably wondering: how much does Orangetheory cost?

Before we get into Orangetheory pricing, let's break down what you're getting when you take a class. A signature Orangetheory's 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 strength floor work, where you train using TRX suspension straps and free weights. The workout is friendly to all levels, including beginners. (Not to mention, we have beginner tips for Orangetheory to make it even easier to start.)

Orangetheory is a heart rate-based group workout. The goal of any sweat session at OTF is to train within the "Orange Zone" — that is, 84-91 percent of your maximum heart rate — for 12 minutes or more. Doing so 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 gear.

Orangetheory Pricing and Memberships

So, how much is Orangetheory? Unfortunately, there's not a straightforward answer. There's a range of Orangetheory membership packages to choose from, including Class Packs, Basic, Elite, and Premier. And overall, Orangetheory prices vary depending on where you live.

To help you get an idea of the prices, Orangetheory shared some averages below — but keep in mind that these are just estimates, so 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 their website, then click "Join Now" to see the prices at the specific location closest to you.

Orangetheory membership starting costs by level:

  • Class Packs: Buy a package of 10 classes ($225 and up), 20 classes ($375 and up), or 30 classes ($499 and up). Prices vary by location.
  • Basic Membership ($79 per month): Four classes per month, plus discounted add-on classes.
  • Elite Membership ($119 per month): Eight classes per month, plus discounted add-on classes.
  • Premier Membership ($179 per month): Unlimited classes every month — with a 30-day risk-free guarantee. If you take eight or more classes during your first 30 days and don't love it, you can get your money back.

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 which level you go for, no annual contract is involved. You can take additional classes at a discounted rate once you purchase a membership. You also have free access to their streaming platform Orangetheory Live as part of your membership.

And great news: Anyone can try one introductory class for free.

Orangetheory prices might seem steep, but remember that you're getting access to all those fitness machines you likely don't have in your home, feedback and encouragement from top-notch coaches, as well as the boutique gym atmosphere (which, you have to admit, can be a lot better than going it alone in a big-box gym). Plus, there are 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 tracker, or 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.
