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.

Poll: Tracking asteroids a favored focus for space program

Jun 25, 2019

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Americans prefer a space program that focuses on potential asteroid impacts, scientific research and using robots to explore the cosmos over sending humans back to the moon or on to Mars, a new poll shows. The poll by The Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, released Thursday, one month before the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, lists asteroid and comet monitoring as the No. 1 desired objective for the U.S. space program. About two-thirds of Americans call that very or extremely important, and about a combined 9 in 10...

San Francisco prosecutors turn to AI to reduce racial bias

Jun 25, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — In a first-of-its kind experiment, San Francisco prosecutors are turning to artificial intelligence to reduce racial bias in the courts, adopting a system that strips certain identifying details from police reports and leaves only key facts to govern charging decisions. District Attorney George Gascon announced Wednesday that his office will begin using the technology in July to "take race out of the equation" when deciding whether to accuse suspects of a crime. Criminal-justice experts say they have never heard of any project like it, and they applauded the idea as a creative, bold effort to make charging...

Apple previews new software as it diversifies beyond iPhones

Jun 25, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Apple, beset by falling iPhone sales, announced upcoming changes to its phone and computer software intended to highlight its new digital services and to further position it as a defender of personal privacy. The revisions previewed Monday during a conference in San Jose, California, included a new feature that will let people log into apps and other services with an Apple ID instead of relying on similar sign-in options from Facebook and Google — two companies that mine data to sell advertising. Apple said it won't collect tracking information about users from that service. As part...

Feds to investigate spike in gray whale deaths on West Coast

Jun 25, 2019

SEATTLE — U.S. scientists said Friday they will investigate why an unusual number of gray whales are washing up dead on West Coast beaches. About 70 whales have been found dead so far this year on the coasts of California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska, the most since 2000. About five more have been discovered on British Columbia beaches. That's a very small fraction of the total number of whales believed to have died, because most simply sink and others wash up in such remote areas they're not recorded. NOAA Fisheries on Friday declared the die-off an "unusual mortality event," providing...

Sound barrier to chase seals, prevent shark attacks debated

Jun 25, 2019

BOSTON — A plan to develop an acoustic system to chase away seals in order to prevent shark attacks is the latest front in the debate about how Cape Cod should respond in the wake of last year's shark attacks. Deep Blue LLC presented the idea for an "invisible fence" to the Barnstable County Commissioners on Wednesday, drawing support from some officials and residents but concern from local animal rights groups. Company owner Willy Planinshek envisions a system of underwater audio devices set up at the region's most popular swimming beaches. The devices would be mounted on buoys some distance...
