#113: Melissa Bentivoglio, Co-founder and CEO of Frame Fitness

Today I’m joined by Melissa Bentivoglio, co-founder and CEO of Frame Fitness — makers of a connected Pilates reformer.

In this episode, Melissa shares how her experience as an athlete, instructor, and designer led to founding Frame. We talk about the company’s $5M funding round that included 24 Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov. And we cover content, community, and manufacturing as the company prepares to ship products in 2022.
