With more than 40 years in the fitness industry, Ellen Latham, M.S., has built a billion-dollar brand out of a lifelong passion.
Ellen Latham’s no-nonsense approach whips devoted fans into shape, both in life and the fitness studio. Within the pages of her inaugural book, PUSH, Latham shares three keys to living an ‘All Out’ life; her mantra is to “look at what you have, not at what you don’t have.”
Drawing inspiration from her father and mentor, Arthur Calandrelli, Latham 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 motivates Latham to open her first Pilates studio in South Florida. There, she created The Ultimate Workout, which quickly became a local phenomenon.
In 2010, Latham co-founded Orangetheory Fitness, an international franchise licensed in 22 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.
Latham was born to a large Italian family in the small town of Niagara Falls, N.Y. Her family, including her growing “Orange family” is still the driving force behind everything she does. Latham lives in South Florida.
