Co-Founder & Manager of The Warehouse Gym, Kevin Teixeira shares his 18-year fitness journey.

What do the first 30 minutes of your day look like, your morning routine?

I wake up around 5:30 am. I don’t touch my phone for 30 minutes as I want to allow my body to wake up naturally. I use this time to think about the day ahead and what I have to do. I find this time between states of waking up and awake the best time for ideas and inspiration.

Where did the idea for The Warehouse Gym come from?

There are three Co-Founders of The Warehouse Gym, we all come from different backgrounds and had different ideas surrounding what a gym experience should be. We compiled these together to achieve what you see now.

Which books are you currently reading for inspiration?


I’m currently reading a book called “Never Split The Difference”. It’s based on negotiating techniques as everything we do in life is a negotiation from business to personal life and I mainly like to read non-fiction, self-development books, to keep me motivated.

Do you have any mentors or guides and how did this help navigate you on the right path?

My Co-Founders are my mentors. They have been successful in their career choices, thereby allowing me to watch and learn from them. If there’s any arena where I require advice, be it work or personal, I take it from them to get a different perspective.

What advice would you give to fitness enthusiasts in the current market?

Being enthusiastic is great as it will drive you, however, you need to be good at what you do. Regardless of the market conditions, the best will be successful.

How does The Warehouse Gym manage to stand out in this competitive market?

We focus on not being like anyone else. Each location is unique and experience lead professionals are at the core of The Warehouse Gym. We aim to become the Middle East’s number one premium gym chain.

What are the key lessons you’ve learned while being in the fitness industry?

The key lesson I’ve learned is that hard work pays off. Fitness has shown me that hard work pays off and you can’t half-half it.
