Anyone Do Orange Theory? Join a Gym After Their Quit?

I'm considering joining Orange Theory - it's a fitness center. My neice has had tremendous success and loves it. It's not your typical gym like Planet Fitness. Of course, my neice is 20 years old. Yeah, right... is what I'm thinking. I'm a little skittish. I used to be very active back in the day but smoking really "killed" my activity level over the last 5 years. My little Quit App says at 4 months my physical fitness is back to the levels of a non-smoker. Of course, it's fear based. I don't want to make a fool out of myself. I have this vision of me huffing and puffing after 2 minutes on a rower and having to stop. Frankly, I don't know what my physical stamina level is. I can do 2 flights of stairs before I'm huffing and puffing but to be honest my leg muscles actually become weak long before my lungs giveout. How sad it that?

Does anyone have any insights about Orange Theory or just plain exersize regimen as a new QUITTER?
