Katherine Mason

Founder & CEO of SculptHouse

Katherine is Founder & CEO of SculptHouse, the world’s first studio to combine the Megaformer – a full-body strength and conditioning machine – and treadmill, offering the most sophisticated human-powered machines alongside a curated collection of luxury activewear. As a lifelong athlete, Lagree Fitness Master Trainer and former Wilhelmina fitness model, Katherine has the passion and expertise to empower people to face the world confidently through fitness and fashion. She has worked at some of New York City’s most prominent luxury fitness studios, represented many global fashion brands – including Nike, Under Armour and Adidas – and has been featured in many fashion and fitness publications, such as Fitness, Women’s Health, Runner’s World and Vogue USA. Katherine has appeared on the cover of SHAPE, was named a top trainer in 2014 and SculptHouse was featured in the magazine in 2018.

After working in the fitness industry in New York City for several years, Katherine decided to fuse her diverse background in retail, marketing, public relations and fitness, and use the knowledge and experience she had gained, to create a fitness studio and boutique that focuses on individuals being the best and most powerful version of themselves by sculpting their bodies, strengthening their minds and outfitting themselves to face the world. She conceptualized the idea of combining the Megaformer with a Woodway Curve treadmill to create a low-impact, but high-intensity workout that combines strength training and cardio intervals in a way that had never been done before. Being a proud graduate of The University of Georgia, Katherine decided to return to her roots in Atlanta to bring the fitness studio and boutique to life.

Today SculptHouse has two brick & mortar locations: it’s flagship in Buckhead, and a second location in Dallas, TX. Katherine aims to make SculptHouse a place where all ages, fitness levels and genders can escape to a positive and encouraging environment for 50-minutes. SculptHouse’s boutique allows men and women to have access to the latest in fitness fashion – selling the latest established and up-and-coming brands that add a layer of confidence when going to their workout or just in everyday life.

Katherine has been a thought leader in the Southeast for fitness and retail, speaking on the Retail Design Institute’s panel "Retail Experience In The Age of Ecommerce." SculptHouse and Katherine have won a number of local and national awards including over twelve “Best of Atlanta” awards, Atlanta Business Chronicle Pacesetter Awards and Emerging Entrepreneur award, Dallas’ People Newspapers’ 20 Under 40, as well as a feature in “The Coolest New Studios in Boutique Fitness in America Right Now” by Well+Good.
