Andrea Austin

Owner and CEO

Andrea Austin started in the fitness industry in 1987 wearing leg warmers and spandex teaching high and low impact aerobics. Throughout the years she remained in the industry part time until becoming a full time personal trainer in 2001. Coming from the creative industry as a Creative Director and Graphic Designer, Andrea used her creative thought process to start her own personal training business and uses it in marketing materials for BeatBoss. She has guided hundreds of people in life-changing workouts both one on one and in group settings.


Andrea’s motivation for fitness is on fire because with her guidance, she inspires positive change in the many lives that she touches. Indoor cycling is a true passion of hers and a great way to burn calories for anti-aging benefits. Since ‘87, she has been certified in many methods with a base foundation certification through N.A.S.M.  


When not motivating and educating other's in the fitness industry, Andrea enjoy's volunteering in animal rescue, getting 2 hour massages, and spending time with her family. Andrea is also a National Physique Committee Judge, judging NPC Bodybuilding, Physique, and Bikini Competitions.


Funny childhood fact: She was the captain of the Junior High PomPom girls in North Dakota already leading others in how to hit that beat and perform like a rockstar.

Robert Bennett Leadley

Senior Director

Robert's love of fitness began at an early age. Born into an exercise forward family, he was active in sports, running, basketball, track and field, as well as pursuing theater and dance through a collegiate level. After training for a BFA in Dance at the University including performing at the Kennedy Center, Robert was hired as a dancer with Royal Caribbean cruise lines. After he apprenticed with Zenon Dance Company and was a company member with Time Track Productions. 

A few years and many pounds later, Robert had moved on from dancing and was quite unhappy with his shape both mentally and physically. Failed attempt after failed attempt to get fit he stumbled upon a rhythm based cycling class. A few years and 50 lbs. lighter, the fire had been re-lit and a passion to instruct indoor cycling began. Robert spent many hours alone in the cycle room working away creating a class. After attaining a nationally recognized Road based certification, he was hired at a popular franchised cycling studio and completed their in house training. He was given an amazing jumping off point with 5 classes a week. This is when he met BeatBoss owner Andrea Austin. Still wanting to hone his craft and learn more, Robert became BeatBoss Certified. His instructing world changed over night. He was home. After many classes at the BeatBoss Lab, private coaching with Andrea and observing certifications across the country, Robert is now a proud BeatBoss Master Presenter, Instructor and Coach, spreading the BeatBoss methodology to eager instructors across the world! He leaves you with 3 words: GET BEATBOSS CERTIFIED!
