Orangetheory Fitness is planning to expand in and around the Austin area.

Workout studio Orangetheory Fitness will open 10 new Central Texas-area locations by the end of this year, said Terry Blachek, Central Texas owner and co-founder.


New sites in the 2016 expansion project include Cedar Park, College Station, The Domain, Lakeline, Lakeway, Leander, Round Rock, San Marcos, Westlake and The Triangle.


“When we first started poking around the region in 2013, we found that Central Texans were eager for a new way to get and stay fit,” Blachek said.


The studio offers 60-minute interval workout classes for all fitness levels and incorporates a heart-rate monitor for participants to track their heart rate each session.


Construction on the Lakeway location in the Oaks at Lakeway is already underway, and the Westlake studio will begin construction in early summer with an opening set for late 2016.
