Club Manager Austin Rickenbaugh

Austin Rickenbaugh - Club Manager

Austin discovered his passion for health and fitness by completing his own weight loss journey and losing nearly 90 lbs. After achieving this, he wanted to spend his career helping others achieve their own fitness goals. Prior to joining the Bailey's team, Austin managed a GNC for a few years helping everyone he met pursue their goals through supplementation and nutrition. Eventually Austin turned his focus and energy to helping people through exercise. Austin made his home at Bailey's in October of 2022 and has not stopped talking about how nice the gym is since. Austin and his staff want to help you achieve your goals no matter what they are, so whenever you are ready, stop in and speak with them! There is no friendlier and cleaner gym in town, and that is a guarantee!
