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.

Born and raised a Canadian Prairie girl, Kara has always had a desire to expand her horizons. She graduated from college, with the triple threat award in Theatre.

Born and raised in New York City, Alex has a deep love for movement and a passion for empowering clients to achieve their fitness goals. One major influence that drew her to training has been her own fitness journey. Prior to giving birth to her second child, Alex had been an avid endurance athlete, having completed more than 20 marathons and 3 ultramarathons. After a challenging pregnancy, Alex worked incredibly hard on her rehab post-partum to regain her pre-pregnancy level. She realized she could combine her enthusiasm for teaching, science and the human body with her learnings from her own fitness transformation in order to empower other women on their fitness journeys at each stage of their lives.
Coach Alex's training style is rooted in a deep understanding of the biomechanics of movement. She blends a wide range of disciplines from Strength training to Pilates, customizing training programs to ensure clients see results. She is a NASM certified Personal trainer, Pilates instructor, and running coach. When she is not coaching her clients, spending time with family (husband, daughter, and son) or doing her own training, you can find her on her roller skates or on a surfboard.
Originally from New York, Lauren grew up both a dancer and an athlete. She earned a B.A. in Theatre Performance and minored in Dance and Kinesiology, which is where her passion for fitness began. Working out in the gym, staying fit, and learning about health became a main focus of hers.
After working in the fitness industry for about 3 years, Lauren met Lena and it was a perfect match. Having worked in the hospitality industry for over 10 years, Lauren has solid experience in working with people of all ages, from all types of backgrounds, and shares a passion for living a healthy lifestyle.
She now lives in Charleston, SC where she supports TeamLeeFit and all of its amazing clients.
