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!

Fitness Consultant Kyle Dzina

Kyle Dzina  -  Fitness Consultant

 

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!

Fitness Consultant Neil Krause

Neil Krause  -  Fitness Consultant

 

I've thoroughly enjoyed coming to, and working for Bailey's since 2003. I admire the amount of effort they put into hiring quality staff employees. It was the staff here that helped me get started and it was the staff that inspired me to pursue a career in fitness. 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. The people I work with and the members I encounter every day create a great positive atmosphere that makes it fun and rewarding to come to work! I also have a career in professional wrestling that I've had the privilege to lead over the last 16 years. Anyone who knows me well knows there has never been a moment of my life that pro wrestling wasn't what I wanted to do. I've wrestled all over the U.S and also in Mexico and Puerto Rico. I've held over 30 titles and my finishing move is called the "Job Opening" because when I use it, they're gonna have to replace you! My goals in life are to have successful careers in fitness and in professional wrestling, so in many ways I can say I'm living the dream!
