Kira McCarthy lives in Brooklyn with her fiancé and Fred, their boxer-pitbull, who’s been known to snack on Kira’s yoga mat from time to time.

Founding Team

Katie Reed and Kelly Froelich

Balanced was inspired by Katie and Kelly's families during COVID-19. While living with her grandmother during quarantine, Katie was distraught with the state of digital fitness for folks like her grandmother. At the same time, Kelly was virtually training her grandparents with cardio boxing via Facetime. With backgrounds in technology, startups, and fitness, the two knew that they could create a digital fitness experience to inspire and build community with healthy outcomes that all older adults deserve.
