July 01, 2015 // Franchising.com // FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Orangetheory® Fitness, the energizing and fast-growing fitness franchise, today announced that a new studio will be coming to Ann Arbor, MI. The Ann Arbor studio will be located in the Woodland Plaza at 2246 S. Main Street. With two studios now open in the state and several in development, the innovative brand will continue to target the Michigan area for expansion.
Owned and operated by first-time franchisees, Matt and Marjo Grabowski and Orangetheory Fitness Michigan area developer Scott Marcus, the new studio will be celebrating its grand opening with a VIP party on July 9 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and will officially open to the public on July 10, with classes starting at 5 a.m.
"We are both passionate about health and fitness and are excited to bring Orangetheory Fitness to our community," said Matt Grabowski, Orangetheory Fitness Ann Arbor franchisee. "OTF gives us the opportunity to positively affect people's lives through fitness – the results of this workout across the country are astonishing. We can't wait for the active local community to become hooked on Orangetheory and start seeing results from the unique and high-energy workout."
After taking their first class at the Denver, Co. Orangetheory Fitness studio, Matt and Marjo Grabowski believed so strongly in the concept that they were eager to open their own studio. Knowing that they live in an active community, the husband and wife team saw a need in their town and partnered with Scott Marcus to bring Orangetheory Fitness to Ann Arbor. Marjo Grabowski brings an extensive background in marketing and business management, and Matt Grabowski is a general partner with Velocity Merchant Energy, where he trades energy futures.

Backed by the science of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), Orangetheory's heart-rate-monitored training is designed to maintain a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy. Led by skilled personal trainers, participants use a variety of equipment including treadmills, rowing machines, TRX® suspension training and free weights, burning an average of 900 calories including after-burn. The result is the Orange Effect – more energy, visible toning and extra calorie burn for up to 36 hours post-workout.
