Talent Hack Sets out to Disrupt the Fitness Industry With a New Centralized Platform
By Christina Najjar| February 11, 2019 |
Talent Hack, the first ever employment platform specific to fitness professionals, recently launched nationally with a mission to help talent source job openings, land their dream job, connect with brands, network and ultimately grow in the industry. The fitness industry, last valued at $30 billion, is just scratching the surface of its potential and with that rapid growth comes massive industry gaps that Talent Hack is here to fill.
After 6 months of beta testing, Talent Hack, the brainchild of Alexandra Bonetti, has officially launched across the United States offering thousands of job opportunities for those looking to transition and/or grow in the fitness space. The idea to create this platform originated while Alexandra was running, growing and operating her Tribeca fitness studio, Bari. She discovered an industry wide pain point: the fitness industry lacked a centralized platform and community where fitness professionals, companies and brands could come together to connect. Driven by her industry insider experience and entrepreneurial spirit, Alexandra was inspired to create Talent Hack. The network consists of over 500 companies like Equinox, Barry’s Bootcamp, Peloton, ClassPass, Pure Barre and MindBody; brands such as Asics, WOLACO, and Athleta looking to connect with trainers as well as thousands of fitness professionals and is rapidly growing. Even before launch, Talent Hack has connected hundreds of trainers to their dream jobs and gigs.
As the space continues to evolve, Talent Hack’s promise is to be ahead of the curve when it comes to industry trends, innovations and education. Every month, Talent Hack hosts intimate “Huddle” sessions which have become one of the most highly requested invites in the fitness industry. Part support group, part networking session, and part low key hang out, Huddles are essentially a room of fitness professionals huddled together in a circle, delving into the trials, tribulations, triumphs, frustrations, and concerns of life as a fitness professional and Talent Hack is there to help navigate and solve these problems.
Talent Hack is also launching an educational portal for both studios and talent alike offering insider intel, tips, and basic infrastructure to help studios and trainers succeed and get to the next level. Courses will be available for purchase starting at $28 with classes like ‘How to Build Your Brand on Social Media’, ‘How To Get Started in the Fitness Industry’, ‘How to Create a Playlist,’ How to Coach Your Voice,’ and ‘Interview/Auditioning in Fitness 101’, to name a few.
