Club Manager Donald McAvoy

Donald 'Frue' McAvoy - Club Manager

Hello, my name is Donald but I go by 'Frue'. I'm the Manager at the Atlantic Blvd. location of Bailey's. My passion is to help people change their lives in the simplest and most realistic way possible. I believe you deserve the right to good health and to be happy inside and out. I care deeply about you and there is nothing of more value to me than helping you go through an experience that makes you happy, confident, and strong. When I first began my adventure with fitness, I was anything but the picture of health. I was skinny, didn't eat the right foods and was overall unhappy with the way I looked. I decided to do something about it. I immersed myself in a new lifestyle and have never regretted it. With more than 10 years in the fitness industry I have found my home with Bailey's. I'm here to be your personal guide on every step of the journey so please feel free to reach out to me. See you in the club!

Fitness Consultant Ken McCray

Ken McCray - Fitness Consultant

 

Hey I’m Ken!  I was born and raised in Duval, and have been working in the fitness industry for 2 years. When thinking about what motivates me, I'm brought back to the days of being a scrawny college kid who didn't know much about the gym life, but I knew it felt good to push weights around. My only motivation was to relieve the stress and pressures of the college lifestyle. Now I am able promote the benefits of health and fitness with people of all ages and backgrounds. Meeting new people, hearing about their mindset, goals, and journey always leaves me feeling energized. If I can help someone get closer to their goal weight, strength, flexibility, and overall feeling of wellness, then I've done something right that day. My own personal goals include increasing my overall size, as well as building the wrist and forearm strength needed to do handstands.
