ALEXANDRA BONETTI (TALENT HACK)
A former consultant and Wharton grad, Alexandra sampled every workout possible during her years traveling as a consultant. Frustrated with exercise myths and methods that didn't offer her the results she craved, she took matters into her own hands and created Bari Studio, an addictive and effective workout method with a cult following, multiple locations, coveted pop-ups, and an ever-growing digital presence.
During her eight years operating fitness studios, Alexandra discovered an industry-wide pain point: the lack of a centralized platform & community where fitness professionals, companies and brands could connect. Driven by her industry-insider experience and entrepreneurial spirit, Alexandra was inspired to create Talent Hack, where fitness professionals can find jobs and opportunities, connect with brands, network and grow.
