Empire Portfolio Group ("Empire"), a leading Area Developer and Franchisee of Orangetheory® Fitness, the heart rate-based interval training fitness franchise, announced today it opened a new studio in the West Village in Manhattan.

The West Village location marks the 6th studio owned and operated by Empire in Manhattan. Other studios are located in Chelsea, Midtown West, Hell's Kitchen and the Upper West Side. Two additional studios will also open later this year located in Bryant Park and TriBeCa.

The new 6,216 square-foot studio space will feature all new state-of-the-art equipment along with the coaching and proprietary in-studio and wearable fitness technology Orangetheory is known for globally. The studio will also introduce Orangetheory's new, personalized MaxHR algorithm, which updates heart rate zones in real time to provide even more accurate performance results. In addition, the studio's treadmills and rowers will be equipped with OTconnect technology, a new, proprietary platform which creates an ecosystem of data and feedback highlighting each member's total distance, average/max incline, max miles per hour, total moving time and more. The studio will celebrate its grand opening on March 1, 2023 and is currently offering discounted Founding Member rates.
