About Ellipse

At Ellipse we like the idea of “coming full circle”.  Not just eating right, not just exercising, but bringing it all together.  Creating the “perfect storm” as our president Lisa Welko likes to share.

The dictionary describes an Ellipse as “a shape resembling an oval or stretched circle with slightly longer, flatter sides.”

We encourage you to make your life an Ellipse.  Why Ellipse?  Because life isn’t perfect, and we’re here to help during the times you’re on course and off!

Life is rarely a perfect circle, but here is what we’ve found:  TRY to do things right – TRY to eat healthfully – TRY to exercise regularly – TRY to get enough sleep – STRIVE for the perfect circle.  Sometimes you’ll stay on the right path and sometimes you’ll veer off track and “life” will get the better of your goals.   Then it’s time to TRY AGAIN!

Stay on track as long as you can, when you veer off, don’t worry!  We’re here to help.  There will be other times you get off track and need to find the right path…you do that enough and you’ll find, you’re life path wasn’t a perfect circle, but it WAS an Ellipse.  It’s where we got the name and we beleive it as much today as we did ten years ago!

Ellipse Fitness offers large & small group training programs for their members.  Our sessions include kickboxing, strength training, cardiovascular training and high intensity training.  We also offer boot camp sessions as well as a nutrition and weight loss program.  Our company was founded in Appleton, WI in 2002 and we currently have 8 locations in Wisconsin and St Louis, Missouri.
