"We are pleased to welcome Michael to the Xponential team where his track record of delivering strong business results and operational management experience make him the right person to support Xponential Fitness' future growth and strategic priorities," said Anthony Geisler, founder and CEO of Xponential Fitness.

As president of D1 Sports Training, Abramson oversaw the company's operations and strategic initiatives, in addition to the management of the company's trademarks and corporate governance.
