Meet The Women Dominating The Wellness World

305 Fitness

You’ll be doing jazz squares in your sleep after a few sessions of this high-energy, dance-cardio class (complete with pink walls and fun lights). It was founded by Sadie Kurzban, who told Forbes that some investors have taken her less seriously, in part because she’s a woman. “I believe that my gender and age (and the fact that I’m petite, look even younger than I am and am attractive) have all played a role in investors scrutinizing 305 as an investment a lot more than they would have if a man were sitting across the table,” she said.
