This was a nice studio - but it's absolutely ridiculous that the first class free only applies to local residents. I came while visiting a friend and after a confusing sign-up process, the manager called to ask where I lived and prefaced it with "having a few questions first" when that was, in fact, the only question she asked me. As a former barre studio manager I find this really bad form, as if they were hiding the reason for calling to talk to me before coming in. If the first class is only free for locals, that should be reflected in their advertising. The class was average and had way too much shifting/waiting around. The heart monitor feature is cool. Will definitely not be back.

Fun class and great instructor

I went to go to class for my first time here at this location and wanted to give a class a try. They said because I had come less than 30 minutes before class (I was there 20 mins before and knew how to use equipment) that I would have to reschedule. I couldn't make it earlier for family reasons and for snow and even explained to them why. They refused. I'm not coming back here again. Asking to show up that early and then get turned away when I finally drive to the location is crazy.

I would like to give zero stars but it's not possible. I had an appointment today as a first time visit and when I signed up it said we would like you to come 30 min earlier than the workout time. Well as we all know, you cannot guarantee the exact time you will show up because of traffic, parking. Etc and I was a few minutes late and was told there is a strict policy that if you do not show up exactly a half hour before then you need to reschedule. First this is ridiculous because it's not my first time at a gym and especially a similar gym and second even going over equipment and (what I'm sure is their most important part) the membership prices shouldn't take up a half hour. The girls at the counter claim this is a corporate rule and there was nothing they could do but that seems a little extreme. I was also there with my sister so because of this stupid rule, they not only lost me as a potential customer but my sister as well and I'll be sure to not recommend orange theory to anyone that I talk to.

I don't work out

Your experience here will likely depend on what you are looking for in a workout. If running on a treadmill for 30 minutes is your thing you will probably enjoy it. If you prefer resistance work and lifting, this is not for you. The "floor" section of the class is subpar and weights at the stations don't go high enough. I do like the idea of your own personal station though. But the cost is high and I don't think worth it for what you get. This best thing about this particular location is the showers. The worst is the waiting area and tiny hallway everyone crams into before class. It's impossible to get or put away your things with the next class lined up and waiting, especially in the winter. I was a member for maybe 6 months or more, I never warmed up to any of the trainers. The place just seems kind of sterile and cold, both in decor and overall vibe. Luckily, cancelling my membership was a no fuss experience.

I have been going to orange theory now for a couple of months and all I have is positive words for it. It's a great workout tailored for everyone and anyone who is trying to get moving, regardless of their fitness level. All instructors will push you hard, and while all of them are great they have a few instructors who are AMAZING! Adding an extra shower and a class somewhere between 12 and 4 would make it absolutely perfect.

Down almost 15% body fat thanks to nicole. Changed it all to muscle. Every workout is different and challenging. Small groups make you accountable for your workout. No going through the motions here!

The personal trainers and people that work here are so friendly and motivating ! Definitely is a great work out and I love coming to this location .

I love the workout and that it’s varied each day, and well rounded over the course of time. The coaches, staff and members are the greatest part of Orangetheory. Everyone is friendly, welcoming and encouraging.

The Manager at this location is unreasonable, unforthcoming, and just provided literally non-existent service when I dropped in for a class over the holidays. She charged my credit card for a session without telling me while I was visiting from VA. When I called to resolve this, she informed me of some policy [that is NO WHERE in my membership agreement] that you can't transfer sessions from one month to use at another studio. Which is funny because I have 6 studios equi-distant to my house in the DC area not part of the same ownership tag that I do this in regularly.

Great atmosphere and motivation. The coaches are helpful and friendly. Full body workouts that are switched up on a daily basis to maximize your results.
June 2018 by Jim Lagowski
A great, dare I say fun, coached, self-paced workout. Clean facility and easy to learn while variety is added on a daily basis with different body foci and challenges. Conventional gyms have never appealed to me, and OTF has been a satisfying way for me to get in shape.

Time flies, I don’t think about how much left I have, I’m in the moment. I’m always motivated to push harder, run faster, use heavier weights and perfect my rowing. It’s perfectly inconsistent with work outs, routines and combination of strength, endurance or power I never. No matter the combination I never feel burnt out, bored or exhausted. I’m happy to go everyday because I know exactly what I’ll get, a really great hour to myself, for myself. It’s encouraged my weight loss and given me the accountability that I needed to motivate myself to work out, be better and lose a lot of weight the right way.

Today was a nerve that needed to be release. I enjoyed every minute of the workout today. My first goal was to make the phone call. My second goal was to make it to the schedule appt. Third goal was to overcome the fear and enjoy what came forward. I accomplish all my goals and I will have many more to achieve. Orange theory fitness is friendly and supportive. Can't wait until my next goal breaker.

I love Orange Theory in general. The most consistently hard but not too hard work out where I can almost always burn 500 calories in an hour. I use my own heart rate combined with the challenge of the coach to drive myself to improve my own personal results. It's a competition with myself to be my best. The team at Transit Rd makes me feel right at home. They are always welcoming and helpful.

I've had a great experience as an Orangetheory member for the last year. The group training setting forces me to work harder than I would by myself, and I love not having to design workouts on my own. Classes start and end on time, so it's a very efficient, consistent experience. I show up, I follow the workout guided by the coaches, and I'm guaranteed to leave feeling a sense of accomplishment and get closer to my fitness goals.

Everything is figured out for you so your not wondering around lost, not knowing what to do. The coaches are very helpful and motivating.

Orangetheory fitness is the best workout class I have ever taken! The instructors are knowledgeable and motivating and The Interval training provides the variety I need to keep from getting bored. OTF Group fitness training provides the energy of a group class with the instruction of personal training. The heart rate monitoring pushes me to challenge myself each and every workout and the instructors bring an energy that keeps me looking forward to my next workout!

One of the great benefits of Orange Theory is the ability to find a local studio in pretty much any major metro area when traveling. As a long-time OTF member and frequent traveler, have had the pleasure of leveraging several studio location throughout the US, and this studio in Amherst is surely one of the best! Super friendly and helpful front desk staff, excellent coaches and well-maintained equipment create a great overall workout experience. Highly recommended to anyone traveling or based in the Amherst area looking for a great workout!!

This is quite honestly the best workout I have ever done! I've been a member since Orangetheory Fitness opened in WNY 2 years ago and the classes never disappoint. Workouts can be done at any fitness level and the trainers make it fun! A full body workout done in 1 hour...no muss no fuss!!

OTF Amherst is an awesome workout but also an awesome community. I find at some gyms/fitness studios the staff doesn't seem to really care - not the case here! They are super friendly and always willing to help if an issue comes up. That to me truly makes a difference. It's a place you want to come back to - even if it is to get your butt kicked For me personally it's a bit pricey, so I can't do it all year but they make it easy to find a way to work it in to your budget whether you do less classes or just use it a few months out of the year. If you came here when they first opened and have left, try coming back. It was never a bad experience but it's definitely improved over the last year. All of the instructors now are great and each bring a different feel to the workout. Overall nothing negative to say - it's just that good.
