Orangetheory Fitness will open its second Katy area location Sept. 10 at 4906 FM 1463, Ste. 500, Katy.

The new Fulshear location came about after the Cinco Ranch location found success, head coach Sydney Howell said.

“Fulshear is an up-and-coming community in itself. Houston expands outwards, so it’s a really good spot for the next Orangetheory to open based on how Houston is expanding plus off the other Katy location, there has just been a demand for it,” Howell said.

Howell said the classes are 60 minutes long and are interval-training, heart rate-based workouts.

“When we are focused on those heart rates; the coaches are going to make sure that the members are not overtraining or undertraining,” Howell said. “A big thing about Orangetheory is that if you get at least 12 to 20 minutes in our orange or red zone then [members] unlock that afterburn, which is burning calories for up to 36 hours after you leave a class.”

Howell has been with Orangetheory since 2018 and said she loves the program.

“I believe in everything that we do. We have a great community, and it’s like we are a family. A lot of people in the classes cheer each other on,” Howell said.
