NAPW honors Barbara M. Graffeo as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. Ms. Graffeo is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in business. As the largest, most-recognized networking organization of professional women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 300 Local Chapters.

ReXist360 is a revolutionary, new product for resistance training,” says Ms. Graffeo. “It delivers real results!”

As a fashion designer, Ms. Graffeo spends much of her time traveling around the country, as well as overseas. Her hectic schedule leaves her with little time to exercise. So when a friend told her about her invention, the ReXist360, she couldn’t wait to try it. The patented power bands are functional, effective, portable and easy to use. For athletes and non-athletes alike, they intensify any workout, anywhere, without adding unwanted pressure to the back, knees and ankles.

Ms. Graffeo now not only uses the bands while she works out in hotel rooms, but she has taken over all phases of the project. “I’m a designer so I know about manufacturing, product development and R&D,” says Ms. Graffeo. As CEO / Owner of ReXist360 / Style Index / City Hearts, she is responsible for marketing the fitness product, as well as managing her fashion design studio. Combining her two passions, Ms. Graffeo is also developing a line of fitness clothing that lets you look good in and out of the gym. “It’s an amazing line of workout wear and street wear,” she said. “It will be available soon online."

The new fitness product has really taken off, says Ms. Graffeo, and ReXist360 classes are now available in gyms throughout New York City. The power bands, which come in multiple grades so they can be scaled up or down while walking, running or training, are available for purchase at “My goal is to grow globally into a recognized fitness brand!” says Ms. Graffeo.

NAPW’s mission is to provide an exclusive networking forum to professional women where they can aspire, connect and achieve.
