Club Manager David Sammons

David Sammons - Club Manager

My name is David Sammons. I'm here to help any and all achieve their fitness goals however I can. I've been working in the health and fitness industry since 2010. My fitness journey has taken me from Atlanta, to Charlotte, to Rome GA, and now to Brunswick. I was a member with Bailey's before becoming a employee, and what attracted me to join the team was upper management's willingness to constantly invest in the clubs. Upgrading and bringing in new equipment regularly, quick turnaround in equipment repairs, and the overall cleanliness of the facility were major attractions for me. I'm originally from Kennesaw GA and moved to Brunswick in winter of 2018. I'm excited for the opportunity and the possibilities ahead. I'm always available, and love to hear feedback from our members about how we can continue to improve and exceed their expectations.
