Club Manager Michael Cox

Michael Cox  -  Club Manager


Born and raised in New Jersey, I moved to Florida in April 2017 with 5 years of fitness industry experience. An active & healthy lifestyle was implemented at a young age and became a passion shortly thereafter. I played 3 different sports starting at the age of 5 through my senior year of high school, and am a die hard New York Yankees fan! After receiving a degree from Wilmington University in Media Art & Design, I decided to instead follow my heart and pursue a career in the fitness industry. I joined the Bailey’s Team in April 2017 as a Manager Trainee and was promoted to Gym Manager in April 2018. A “home away from home” experience is what I aim to provide for our members and I look forward to continue growing my passion with Bailey’s!

My name is Neil Krause. I have been working and working out at Bailey's since 2003, and still going strong! I feel that if you can make a positive impact on a person so they keep coming back to the gym and keep achieving their fitness goals, you're truly doing your part in helping people live better lives.

Fitness Consultant David Vargas Hernandez

David Vargas Hernandez - Fitness Consultant



Hi, I'm David and I have lived in Jacksonville for 14 years. I am currently a student at UNF and will be finishing my Finance degree soon. I first started my fitness journey through sports. I played soccer for Stanton College Prep, as well as local club soccer, which I think later helped me develop my passion for fitness and health. Before starting to work for Baileys, I was a member as I loved the facilities and the number of gyms available around town. If you catch me at the front desk don't hesitate to come and say hi!
