Aurora, CO Gym Announces New Blog In Honor Of Pride Month

Gym in Aurora, Orangetheory Fitness has published a new blog on its website to spread awareness of their open-to-everyone approach to working out at one of their fitness centers.

Aurora, United States - June 12, 2019 /PressCable/ —

Aurora, Colorado- The popular and highly reputable gym in Aurora, Colorado, Orange Theory Fitness, Southlands releases blogs on their website multiple times a month. Since June is nationally recognized as Pride month, they have just published a blog entitled, “Orangetheory Community United in Support”.

The blog, written by Alex Kramers was published May 30th on the company’s website. The article showcases one of the Gym’s members, Jordan H, who is described as feeling out of place at big-box fitness facilities across the Manhattan area, which caused him to become intimidated by the judgmental stares and hushed whispers of surrounding gym members.

This intimidating, or “gymidation” atmosphere, (as Orangetheory Fitness often describes an intimidating gym experience) caused Jordan to swear off the gym entirely due to lack of motivation to exercise in this particular environment.

Jordan H. had this to say in the article, “When I’d go to use machines, I felt like no one was taking me seriously,” Jordan said. “I felt like there was such a huge stigma with people being homophobic, or (holding) any other sort of stigmas with race or financial background. The looks that you get or the judgment you feel, it can really create a toxic environment.”

Jordan’s ex-boyfriend was actually the one who recommended Orangetheory Fitness, he raved about Orangetheory, and Jordan, was intrigued enough to push open the double-glass doors of his local studio and check it out for himself.

According to the company’s blog, Jordan observed a group of OTF members — ranging in age, style and body type in the studio, some working through floor exercises and others transitioning from a warm-up jog to a push-pace.

Jordan says, at the front of the class, an enthusiastic coach would shout words of encouragement to the fitness enthusiasts, correcting first-timers’ push-up forms and motioning with both hands when it was time to alternate between exercises. The class environment was free of discrimination; each member received motivation throughout the workout in a diverse and supportive environment, without the fear of feeling like an outsider.

Orangetheory Fitness encourages everyone from all walks of life to come and visit the gym in Aurora and find out for themselves just how warming, open minded, and non judgemental the staff and members really are.

Oct 18, 2019

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill.

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Oct 18, 2019

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Oct 18, 2019

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...

Turkey's Erdogan witness in footballer Mesut Ozil's wedding

Oct 18, 2019

ISTANBUL — Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was in the wedding party as Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil tied the knot on Friday. State-run Anadolu news agency said Erdogan and his wife, Emine, were legal witnesses for Ozil, who married model, actress and former Miss Turkey Amine Gulse in Istanbul.
