A former consultant & Wharton grad, Alexandra sampled every workout possible during her years traveling as a consultant. Frustrated with exercise myths & methods that didn't offer her the results she craved, she took matters into her own hands & created Bari Studio, an addictive & effective workout method with a cult following, multiple locations, coveted pop-ups, & 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 & brands could connect. Driven by her industry-insider experience & entrepreneurial spirit, Alexandra was inspired to create Talent Hack, where fitness professionals can find jobs & opportunities, connect with brands, network & grow.
