FITNESS & ACTIVE BRANDS VIRTUAL LIVE SUMMIT

Virtual SUMMIT
10-19 November, 2020

Watch our FREE PRE-EVENT WEBINAR ON DIGITAL FITNESS to get a taste of content to come. Click the link below to hear from FORTE, [solidcore], Les Mills, Technogym, keep me and many more.

Why Attend

In the wake of COVID-19 we are witnessing a rapid acceleration of at-home and connected fitness offerings. With Lululemon making its $500 million at-home play with the acquisition of MIRROR, and industry giants such as Peloton seeing significant surges in revenue, the fitness space is more competitive than ever.

Predictions are also being made around the consolidation of the operator landscape. With the RSG Group acquisition of Gold’s Gym, we are already seeing the industry take a new shape. Many boutiques will struggle to reopen, and those that do must tackle further localized lockdowns and the new challenging unit economics.

An omnichannel strategy is a ‘must have’ to diversify revenue streams and stabilize profitability. But going omnichannel is not a one size fits all exercise. It takes expertise, resources, consumer insights and the right strategy and pricing model to make it work.

Learn from trailblazing executive peers already reimagining their business models, and take a step back to ask ‘what will my business look like going forward, and how do I get there?’

Prior to Row House, she created a million dollar plus annual business for NYC, focused on creating digital partnerships with the city's tourism facing assets.  This work helped NYC achieve its annual tourism numbers; tourism is traditionally the city's second biggest economic stimulus.  During this time she worked with city agencies and constituents, leveraging their assets, knowledge and know-how with that of private business of all sizes. These spanned from corporations like Red Bull, Jet Blue, Starwood Hotels, and more to smaller constituents with either multiple locations like BR Guest Restaurants or single location businesses like Empire State Building and American Museum of Natural History.  Debra also worked extremely closely with Broadway, spearheading the creation of Broadway Week; as a follow-up to Restaurant Week; which has become a global program to solve need periods.  Debra's 5 years at NYC & Company was pivotal to her career; giving her the network and know-how to succeed.

Even after graduating college a few years prior, she was in digital publishing for small up and coming VC-backed companied. She was passionate about disruption and even know, continues to move through her career motivated to cut through the clutter, create differentiation and establish sustaining business in smart niches.

FHITTING ROOM

Kari Saitowitz

Founder
FHITTING ROOM

Prior to creating Fhitting Room, Kari, was a marketing executive at Pepsi. She focused on building equity for powerhouse brands and launching new product innovations.


In 2007, she left the world of boardrooms and bubbles and entered the world of diapers and sleepless nights. Exhausted and time-starved, Kari began Functional High-Intensity Interval Training as a means to work off her pregnancy weight in her scarce free time. As someone who hasn’t always loved exercise, Kari was blown away by the physical and emotional results of HIIT and the efficiency of her new, only 2x weekly, workout routine.


Around this time, specialized boutique fitness studios started popping up, and people were getting instantly hooked on the fun, social dynamic classes provided. Kari loved the idea of working out with friends but couldn’t find a studio that offered functional HIIT workouts with enough personal attention from certified trainers. Her friends were taking classes 2-3x weekly and seeing personal trainers 1-2x per week, a time consuming and expensive practice.


Kari took her love of planning unique consumer experiences and finding creative solutions to develop a new way for anyone to access the benefits of a personal training session in a motivational group setting. This “Gym Idea” became the subject line of an email Kari sent to a close friend in 2012 and led to the opening of the first Fhitting Room location in a small studio on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in March 2013. The lease for Fhitting Room’s flagship Flatiron location was signed six months later, followed by the Upper West side flagship in 2017.


Kari is the Founder + CEO of Fhitting Room overseeing three Fhitting Room studios in NYC, Fhitting Room On Demand and Fhitting Room LIVE!, the brand's virtual boutique class platform. She has an MBA from Harvard Business School, where she graduated with honors, and she graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with Kisaco Research will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts. We value your ROI and will work with you directly on your specific goals and targets – that’s why we take special care in finding the most relevant end-users to attend, so that your financial and resource investment is smartly allocated.
