Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Ellen Latham was inspired by her father, a popular physical education teacher and coach in Niagara Falls, New York, to spend her life motivating and training clients, which she has been doing for over 35 years.
With an undergraduate degree in Physical Education and a Masters Degree in Exercise Physiology she went on to co-found Orangetheory Fitness, a rapidly growing network of fitness facilities around the world.
The workout she developed done over “four million times a month in eight different languages.”
Ellen is a “go by the gut type”. It never lets her down.
Three things she can’t live without are working out, a good slab of dark chocolate and learning something new.
She says: “I am 100% Italian. Pizza and pasta are a Sicilian’s way of life. That’s what I was reared on — and good red wine. Every good Italian will relate to that!”
Orangetheory Fitness has over 1000 locations around the world — and counting.
In 2017 Inc. identified “Orangetheory Fitness as the fastest-growing women-owned business in America.”
