ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - At-home workouts in front of computers and televisions with subpar fitness equipment causes many Americans to have basement burnout.

A survey conducted by Orange Theory Fitness finds 41 percent of Americans are suffering from the monotony of the at-home fitness routine. The data reveals a strong desire among consumers to return to pre-pandemic fitness routines, swapping at-home workouts for variety, community, motivation and accountability offered by studios and gyms.

“Any exercise is going to be better than none, if you haven’t been very active, again start low, maybe that is a couple of exercise spouts per week, now something that we are looking for in any well rounded exercise routine is a combination of two types of training. So the first one is cardiorespiratory or aerobic training, and second one is resistance training,” Rachelle Reed, Ph.D. with Orange Theory said.

To ease basement burnout, Orange Theory provides a special one-month free offer for those who sign up for an elite or premier membership by June 30. More information on the offer can be found at orangetheory.com.
