Ellipse Fitness Provides Free Boot Camp for McClone Insurance in Menasha, WI

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 Ellipse Fitness Provides Free Boot Camp for McClone Insurance in Menasha, WI

Ellipse Fitness recently provided a complementary boot camp for employees of McClone Insurance in Menasha.  The event was done in conjunction with the Warrior Princess Mud Run for which both McClone Insurance and Ellipse Fitness are corporate sponsors.

Menasha, WI. – September 17, 2012 – Ellipse Fitness recently provided a complimentary boot camp for employees of McClone Insurance.  This is one of many events Ellipse has provided in Neenah, Appleton and the Greater Fox Valley.

Speaking engagements and complementary fitness classes at health fairs and local corporations are an important part of Ellipse’s mission to improve the health and fitness in the community.  Over the last year the company has provided presentations on metabolism, weight loss, and fitness.  This November, Ellipse Fitness President Lisa Welko will be the key note speaker at the Fab Five Woman’s Expo.

According to Welko:

“If there is one thing we would like to do more of, it’s speaking to the community about the benefits of health and fitness.  There are a lot of people who want to learn more about how they can achieve their health and fitness goals.  This boot camp was a great opportunity for people to actually participate in a workout.  While many were exhausted, they had a lot of fun.”

The opportunity arose since both Ellipse Fitness and McClone are two of the many corporate sponsors for the upcoming Warrior Princess Mud Run on October 6th to support Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs and end domestic violence in the community.

Since many race participants were looking to better prepare themselves for the event, Ellipse Fitness asked sponsors if their employees would be interested in a workout at their place of business.  McClone was quick to respond and several lucky employees go a chance to workout with Ellipse’s Fitness Director, Rebecca Blankfield.

The event was originally schedule for outside, however, it had to be moved indoors due to the weather.  The workout included many fun and innovative exercises including using tires, ropes, elasticity bands, and traditional weights.
