A little about Studio 128....
Hello! I am Debbie Kleinbauer, founder of Studio 128. Want to know how it all started? Well, read on!
I spent the majority of my career (18 years!) working in Finance at a major investment bank in Manhattan. I had a great job, at a great company working with great people. But, 3 kids later, a long commute and lots of demands at home, I decided to take a break from my career in finance. It was one of the hardest decisions I had to make, but it was the best decision for our family.
My mornings quickly shifted from checking work emails as soon as I woke up to packing lunches and shuttling 3 kids off to 3 different schools! As all parents can relate, I struggled to find some “me” time amidst the homework, hockey practice, ballet lessons, and endless laundry. I quickly realized that carving out time for a workout was the best way to stay healthy and fit in the essential "me" time into my schedule.
I started attending classes at a few local studios and rode my Peloton bike when I couldn't make it to class. I also discovered a whole new world of fashion, and went from wearing suits and heels to fun leggings and fashionable tops. This workout gear became my “outfit” for the day — gone were the days of working out in leggings and going home to shower and get "dressed" for the day. I was realizing that women now wanted comfortable, flattering activewear that looks great outside of the studio, too — taking them from morning barre class to picking up the kids, or from their intense spin class to coffee with friends.
Combining my love of fashion and fitness, I decided to create Studio 128. Our company makes it easy for busy women to find many different cutting-edge, high-end activewear brands all on one website.
So here we are. I am thrilled to offer you Studio 128. Can't wait for all of you to share our page and shop! I hope you all enjoy shopping at Studio 128!
