Leanne Maisano

Director

At the age of 18, Leanne attended the National School Of Sport with James Watt College in Scotland, where she studied full-time in Sports Coaching & Development for three years. While studying full-time, Leanne worked for The Scottish Football Association and Inverclyde Council, before traveling the East Coast of America while coaching soccer for a three month period.

Following her return, Leanne focused on her career and quickly worked her way up the corporate ladder in the leisure industry. By age 21, Leanne was part of the team that opened the largest local authority gym in Scotland, which she then managed for several years before moving into the private sector as Member Services Manager for Fitness First. After a short spell there, she was eventually headhunted and returned to local authority to open Birkmyre Park, a fitness gym in the prestigious area of Kilmacolm, Scotland. Leanne then gained further promotion in the Senior Management Team as Area Facilities Manager, overseeing three sports centres, two swimming pools and community facilities.

With over 18 years in the industry and with qualifications that include Level 3 & 4 of Personal Training, HND Sports Coaching & Development and certifications in Zumba™ and Les Mills™, Leanne brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Alien Fitness. It has been her passion from an early age, and in 2011 Leanne, alongside her husband John, fulfilled her desire to open a fitness gym of her own with the launch of Alien Fitness.
