Committee Member: Michael Chabala

Michael Chabala

Houston - Founder of Sphere

After almost a decade playing professional soccer, Michael Chabala entered corporate America—banking, brokering, private equity. But something was missing, so he returned to his passion and founded Sphere, a business designed to connect people on and off the field. He created unique workouts to compete in the boutique fitness world. “Don't let your highs get too high, or your lows get too low,” he says like a true athlete and entrepreneur.
