We had the good fortune of connecting with Kaleena Ladeairous and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kaleena, what principle do you value most?
Servant leadership. Servant leadership is a leadership philosophy in which the main goal of the leader is to serve. I believe I was put on this Earth to lead and inspire others to push themselves physically and be stronger versions of themselves inside the gym and then hopefully out. I feel the best way to do that is by example and motivation.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Community is what sets the gym I work for and the gyms I have worked for apart. I love creating communities of people who become more than just people who workout next to each other. They become friends, family even! Everyday they see each other, push each other to get healthier and fitter and help each other relieve stress. We also even do many charity events throughout the year to fundraise.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
It’s Miami! Gotta rent a boat and get them on the water!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
God – I’m blessed everyday, just want to pay that forward!
