LENA MARTI, Founder & CEO
CPT, CES, PES, WLS, and PN1 Nutrition.
Part Italian, part Puerto Rican, Lena “Coach Lee” Marti was born and raised in Queens, New York. Excelling in multiple dance disciplines since age 8, Lee decided to pursue a career in the fitness world, inspiring others to actively realize their own potential. Coach Lee preaches discipline, work ethic, and self-awareness, gaining the beginnings of her training experience in master trainer status with companies such as Crunch and Equinox, eventually opening her own business, Coach Lee LLC.
Lena has become one of the most sought after coaches in New York City because of her philosophy: that true transformation begins with mindset. Lee believes diving into mindfulness begins with awareness and breaking through old patterns and habits in order to create new ones that support the goals her clients want to achieve. With her 3 step approach to create awareness around food and the relationship with the body, her clients are educated and encouraged to make better decisions for themselves, resulting in long-lasting transformations and results.
Through over 15 years of experience and extensive research, Lena knows how important mindset is to long-term weight loss. By encouraging her clients to look beyond the physical results, they learn self-love, self-respect, and prevent relapse along the way.
There is a reason that most of Coach Lee’s clients continue working with her after so many years. The results are real, long-lasting, and transformative.
