Prior to founding The Fhitting Room, Kari was a Marketing Executive at Pepsi-Cola Company, where she focused on building brand equity for powerhouse brands as well as launching new brands and product innovations. She left the world of boardrooms and bubbles and entered the world of diapers and sleepless nights almost nine years ago and was introduced to High Intestity Training as a means to work off her pregnancy weight. Never one to love exercising in the past, Kari was blown away not only by the results of HIT physically and emotionally but also by how much fun she was having during her workouts. As friends darted off to boutique fitness studios to enjoy spin, yoga, pilates and barre method classes, Kari became consumed with developing a boutique fitness studio specializing in super effective and truly fun High Intensity Training workouts. Kari has an MBA from Harvard Business school, where she graduated with honors, and graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania.
