Mark Harari has been involved with athletics and fitness nearly all of his life, beginning at a young age with team sports including soccer, baseball, football, basketball, tennis and track and field. In high school and college, he narrowed his field of vision and concentrated on baseball, boxing and weight training. After graduating with a degree in Creative Advertising from the University of Texas at Austin, Mark moved to Los Angeles in order to combine his passions for fitness and business into one.
After several years gaining knowledge and experience in the fitness industry in Los Angeles, Mark knew there was something missing: a challenging workout that also encourages and empowers its students. And so in 2007, Mark launched Pulse Fitness Studio in Sherman Oaks, CA. During its first year of business, Pulse was voted the “Best Fitness Studio in Los Angeles” by Fox LA., and the studio has only grown bigger and better since! Mark’s unique concepts for fitness training, along with a passion for teaching, and an incredible group of staff and trainers are the driving forces behind his proven success as an instructor and business owner.
News of Mark’s studio in Sherman Oaks is spreading. Mark Harari has been featured with many of his clients on television shows such as E! Entertainment Television’s “15 Remarkable Celebrity Body Bouncebacks”, Access Hollywood, EXTRA, Entertainment Tonight, KTLA Morning News in Los Angeles, FOX LA News, and even and a role on ABC’s “Brothers and Sisters”. Mark has been featured in PEOPLE Magazine, SHAPE, several issues of FITNESS magazine (including as a Contributing Editor for the May and June 2011 issues), OK! Magazine, and several other large-market newspapers around the country.
Mark’s philosophy on training is centered on challenges. His positivity encourages his clients to never shy away from a challenge, because every challenge is an opportunity… Challenge = Change!
