6 September 2018
Landsec and Invesco Real Estate have welcomed Orangetheory Fitness to Southside, Wandsworth. The brand, home to an innovative gym concept, has opened a 4,939 sq ft unit on Garratt Lane.
Top-of-the-line equipment, upbeat music and motivational personal trainers make Orangetheory Fitness the most energetic fitness environment around. The Southside studio has 13 treadmills, 13 rowing machines, 13 suspension unit systems, benches for sessions of 10 to 39 people, as well as bike and strider options. The studio also has separate men’s and women’s restrooms and showers for convenience and comfort. Lockers, courteous staff and modern equipment complete the Orangetheory Fitness experience.
Orangetheory’s heart rate monitored training is designed to maintain a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy after the workout has finished to keep the body burning calories for up to 36 hours.
Deepan Khiroya, Senior Portfolio Director, Landsec, commented: “Our retail and leisure mix at Southside reflects the aspirational consumers that visit the centre on a regular basis; Orangetheory Fitness is an innovative and forward-thinking brand, who we are pleased to be able to add to our offering.”
