Orangetheory offered a Name, Image, Likeness (NIL) deal to Gamecock legend, 2022 Women’s NCAA Tournament National Champion, Most Outstanding Player, and National Player of the Year, Aliyah Boston.
Part of the deal entailed designing a custom collaborative workout to share with Orangetheory members across the nation. It infuses Aliyah’s athletic training regimen with a one-hour Orangetheory-based workout focused on endurance, strength, and power.
To celebrate the collaboration, COLAtoday was invited to break a sweat alongside Aliyah + try the new “Shot Clock” workout in Orangetheory’s newest studio location (940 Harden St.) which opened last Monday.
Introducing, the “Shot Clock” workout.
🍊 Orangetheory workouts use heart rate-based interval training so you can get real-time results as they’re displayed throughout the studio.
🍊 Jog, run, and sprint on the treadmill in time intervals, switching when your Orangetheory coach calls out the next phase.
🍊 In between treadmill intervals, hop on the rowing machine that uses water resistance for endurance + speed.
🍊 Perform agility-style + weight-resistant workouts on the weight floor that Aliyah is familiar with — think quick feet, jumping over a lateral line, and weighted medicine ball handoffs. Take a peek into the workout here.
Try the new workout for yourself as it’s released nationally for the first time tomorrow — psst, your first class is free — and we recommend booking a class in Columbia’s newest studio.
Keep up with Aliyah as she continues to break records on the court. During Monday night’s season opener (and 101-31 victory against East Tennessee State), Aliyah had the 61st double-double of her career and finished with 11 points and 11 rebounds in 20 minutes.
