My name is Jeffery Richardson, and I joined Bailey’s Gym family in January 2020. I have been an avid runner and started my training at Baileys Gym in 2006. Since then I have run several marathons and have completed the Gate River Run every year since 2010! In my spare time I like spending time with friends, family, and my Pug! I also enjoy cooking, gardening, and working on computers. I look forward to working with the Bailey's Family and seeing/helping members achieve their fitness goals, while striving to improve and complete my own fitness goals!

The environment and attitude of the members at Bailey's Gym make it the most enjoyable experience as an employee, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
