This year’s Guest Speaker is Ellen Latham, Partner & Founder of Orangetheory Fitness. With more than 40 years in the fitness industry, a masters degree, and fitness certifications, she has built a billion-dollar brand out of a lifelong passion. Ellen’s no-nonsense approach whips devoted fans into shape, both in life and the fitness studio. Ellen speaks passionately about overcoming life’s inevitable ups and downs. Her story begins as a single mother having little more than a fitness certification and an internal drive to succeed. An unexpected career setback motivated Ellen to open her first pilates studio in South Florida. There, she created The Ultimate Workout, which quickly became a local phenomenon. In 2010, Ellen co-founded Orangetheory Fitness, an international franchise licensed in 20 countries. Forbes named Orangetheory one of “The Fastest Growing Woman-Owned Businesses” in 2017, and it has been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine, Inc., Bloomberg, and the New York Times for its disruptive science-backed exercise concept.
