"Altamonte is one of the first Orangetheory studios to roll out our brand new studio design package, which was several months in development and is both aesthetically and functionally incredible," said Dave Long, chief executive officer of Orangetheory Fitness and owner of the Altamonte Springs studio. "There's a completely new look to the lobby and retail stand, and we've placed updated logo graphics throughout the studio. It reflects the evolution of our brand and is the realization of major studio enhancements we've announced over the past year. For a studio like Altamonte, which is one of our smaller locations, the positive impact on the member experience will be immediately felt."
Long is one of the founders of Orangetheory Fitness and has dedicated his life to health and wellness. He spent four years at Massage Envy as Vice President of Operations, taking the concept from 20 clinics to 800. After forming Ascente Group with business partner Jerome Kern, Dave took European Wax Center from five to 200 locations and sold out the entire U.S. for area franchise development. His passion for fitness, combined with his experience in franchise development and business has helped Orangetheory Fitness grow exponentially over the past few years.
