Owner Spotlight: Lee Banks

As the proud owner of Lee Banks Fitness Enterprises LLC, I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

After competing as an IFBB professional bodybuilder and learning all the skills and disciplines needed to change my physique, I realized I had the knowledge of training and nutrition that could benefit many people outside the competitive fitness world. So, I started my business with a passion for helping others achieve their health and fitness goals. 

When I launched my online fitness business eight years ago, I provided services only to competitive athletes. However, today my business caters to people of all fitness levels. 

As a leading fitness center, we value natural and healthy fitness and believe that fitness is a lifestyle, not a short-term goal. Our mantra is, “Fitness for Life!”, meaning everyone should be mentally, physically, and emotionally fit in order to experience the best possible quality of life.

As a NASM certified personal trainer and health coach, I can help clients establish habits and disciplines needed to accomplish their goals and develop a healthy lifestyle. I believe health and well being should always be first and foremost, and encourage clients to practice natural bodybuilding and fitness training.

What gives me an edge over my competition is my experience and industry knowledge. I have been in the fitness industry for over twenty years as an accomplished IFBB professional bodybuilder, Olympia level athlete, and former fitness director at a corporate gym.

Seeing people’s lives change as they begin to accomplish their fitness goals has been the most fulfilling part of my job. It’s like fitness opens up confidence in all areas of their lives. The most rewarding part of business ownership is the ability to create and build a working system that has no limitations or restrictions. 

I have had many moments of pride and joy throughout my career, but the most satisfying moment was when I opened my brick and mortar location in 2019.

My business has come a long way since then and garnered tremendous success primarily because we can provide quality service that produces results.

When I’m not training my clients or offering advice, I love bodybuilding and relaxing with a good book. 

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
