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 diehard 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!

Locals, my name is Kyle and I'm a Jacksonville native, born and raised! I grew up in a household of technology and learned a lot about computers at a really young age. I love to play instruments and write music. When I'm not doing that, I enjoy health and fitness related activities. I started working out in late 2016 when I was at my highest weight. I've worked hard to trim it off, with a goal to never go back to that weight! I've also been a Special Olympics Coach/Volunteer for over six years. I really enjoy helping others and Bailey's has given the opportunity to do exactly that!
