Happy birthday to Allouez!
Here is a special letter from Heather Trevarthen, owner of the Allouez (Green Bay) Ellipse Fitness:
It’s amazing how much can change in 10 years. How did it all start you may (or may not) have wondered?
In 2005, I married my wonderful and supportive husband John. John had recently been hired for a job that required us to move from the Green Bay to Appleton/Darboy. Our new adventure would pull me away from the only community I had ever known.
One of my first missions was to find out where my new fitness home would be. I had received a postcard from some place called Livewell (today known as Ellipse Fitness). I attended 5 classes and remember not only having a blast with kickboxing, to an actual boxing bag, but also asking the coach if it was normal to feel EXHAUSTED by the end of the week..seriously could not keep my eyes open. I was no stranger to the gym, by that point, and was used to spending hours in a gym each night…I knew there was something different going on, but what? I was curious how this would work. The trainer assured me it was normal and it was just my body adjusting to something new. He was right. I trusted that my goals were his/their goals. The workouts, even then, were unlike any other place I had ever been to. I HAD to join and be a part of this. I was extremely happy at the results I saw in my body and became more confident in my own abilities.
I knew it was my turn to give back when, in the summer of 2006, I saw this little Livewell studio was rebranding to be Ellipse Fitness and was looking to grow. Even then, I believed in Ellipse and saw the huge potential there was to change lives with this unique fitness concept. A few months later I, and my husband, took a huge risk and began the construction process, of the very first expanded location, in a virtually empty strip mall in Allouez.
Today the Allouez Village Shoppes filled to capacity and running strong!
And so it began! My goal and passion became us, Ellipse Fitness Allouez. We started to reach goals in Allouez. We started to feel better, move better, perform better, and look better!
Michelle was our very first “published” success story.
“Congratulations to you, and to the success of Ellipse!! I miss you and wish I was closer as Ellipse was a true highlight of my life!! I never felt better and my confidence was shining at Ellipse!!! I will always be grateful for that, it will always be home and highly recommended!!!” – Michelle
