Our Story

Delivering heart, health and happiness through personalized, functional, group training.

 
Fhitting Room Founder + CEO, Kari Saitowitz, took her love of planning unique consumer experiences to fill a gap in the fitness industry: a way for every body to reap the benefits of a one-on-one personal training session within a motivational group fitness setting.
 
In March 2012, Kari sent an email to a close friend with the subject line “Gym Idea.” Less than a year later, the first Fhitting Room studio opened on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Six months later, the lease for Fhitting Room’s flagship location was signed, followed by Fhitting Room Upper West Side in 2017. 
 
In 2019, Fhitting Room started offering online workouts available anytime, anywhere through Fhitting Room On Demand. 2020 was the year that rocked the world and the year that uncovered Fhitting Room’s ability to deliver our 5-star “in-studio” experience virtually. Fhitting Room LIVE! pairs the convenience of digital with the power of small group fitness classes; our workouts adjust to each individual in real time.
