Ingrid Owen spent the past 25 years in the fitness industry, which includes 18 years with 24 Hour Fitness where she served in a variety of roles, such as the Vice President of Fitness, Group Fitness, Learning and Development and Corporate Operations. She started her career as a group exercise instructor and a personal trainer, and in time progressively advanced, eventually taking the club management track, where she was elevated to senior management and executive leadership roles. Through the course of her tenure at 24 Hour Fitness, she developed key partnerships with top industry leaders such as Zumba, Les Mills, Parisi Speed School, IDEA and TRX. It was the alliance and integration of these partners that became the cornerstone of the group fitness programming.
Ingrid is currently a consultant in the health and fitness industry serving to help club owners and industry leaders strategize, develop business plans, create stronger fitness programming and implement efficient processes to drive revenue opportunities, secure retention, decrease costs, improve operations and enhance consumer experiences.
With a philosophy that wellness supersedes fitness, Ingrid’s approach with clients – whether you are a corporation seeking increases in margin or an individual seeking personal fitness gains – involves a holistic platform that complements all areas of business or a person’s well-being. She believes in practicing what she preaches and continues to actively instruct and train for both Les Mills and TRX, as well as pursue her passion for MMA workouts.
Ingrid has two amazing kids who are the foundation of her life. As a single working mother, she fully understands the challenges facing parents who are balancing the time demands of their careers, and thus adds relevant and compelling real-life perspective to all her endeavors.
