Marnie O'Donnell is the creator and owner of MOD Fitness Studio, a barre workout that is taking the Austin, TX area by storm. A former Division I athlete at UC Berkeley (where she and Nicole met), Marnie has always been a fitness and health enthusiast. In her early 20s, a boating accident resulted in a serious neck injury that left Marnie in a cervical halo for several months. Never one to let a setback get her down, Marnie used a combination of yoga, pilates and barre to overcome her injury and transform her body. This experience is what inspired her to create MOD Fitness.
A true inspiration, Marnie is the epitome of strength and perseverance - the ideal KORE woman. We interviewed her to get a couple fitness tips as well as some of her favorite summer beauty products - enjoy!
