Ellen Koelsch


Koelsch, an industry veteran who has worked since 1987 at Club Fit, which was founded by her mother in the 1970s, is now in charge of spending more than $1 million annually to ensure that members stay loyal to the club and that client retention is optimized. She is a firm believer in the importance of investing heavily in staff development and training. She loves that “Club Fit is a place where the whole family can work out and stay healthy” and touts the gym’s “commitment to creating space to foster relationships among members.”

A philanthropically minded business, Club Fit offers programs for cancer patients (Koelsch is a breast cancer survivor), and a newly introduced partnership with Mercy College has created a tailored cycling class for Parkinson’s patients. Koelsch is also deeply committed to sustainability (beekeeping is a hobby), so expect to see the Briarcliff location get new solar roof panels soon.
