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!

Fitness Consultant Neil Krause

Neil Krause  -  Fitness Consultant



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.
