Security

 

Bailey's considers the safety of our members a top priority.  All Bailey's Gym locations utilize a computer controlled card access system.  The main member entrance door must be opened via electronic validation.  Once inside the lobby, the member must pass through a turnstile type gate, electronically controlled by the system, ensuring each individual entrant has been verified.  The system will record all attempts to enter a facility, even if the entry request is denied.  All members are required to use their membership card each visit.

 

Security measures in place include:

  • All locations are monitored 24 hours a day with digital recording equipment.
  • Cameras are located in all legally permissable member access areas.
  • All locations are monitored by an independent alarm company.
  • Bailey's employs a team of after-hours roving Security providing coverage at individual locations on an unannounced rotating schedule.
  • Bailey's Security team members are available to provide late night escorts to vehicles, as well as report any undesired activity to management and local authorities.
  • All locations are equipped with a 911 'Red Phone' at the member gate entrance. Upon pickup, these phone automatically dial 9-1-1.
  • All clubs are equipped with automatic defibrillators (AED's).
  • Each location is equipped with individual cell phone / key lockers with user assigned combinations during each visit.

Security Employee Jon Waters

Jon Waters  - Security

 

I have worked at Bailey’s Health and Fitness for 15 years and have experience in various departments. My interests include comic books, Star Wars, and staying in shape! My philosophy on fitness: Fitness literally saved my life. The physical condition I was in due to weight training enabled me to survive multiple heart procedures required due to a hereditary condition, including multiple by-passes and multiple valve replacements. To this day, I still challenge myself in the gym. Continuing to push myself...just in case. I’m always willing to share or pass on any knowledge I have based on my experiences and philosophies with weight training.

Charaka Mallakarachchi  - Security

 

I started working at Bailey's in 2019. I'm relatively new to the Jacksonville area but have worked security in the past for various events.  I am pursuing my bachelor’s degree at UNF while also working as mechanic/machinist during the day. During my free time I like staying active.  I have a passion for martial arts and have trained mostly in Muay Thai but am always looking to improve my ground game with Jiu-Jitsu.  I enjoy sports, with basketball probably being my favorite, and of course I love lifting weights and working out.  I'm always looking to learn something new and opportunities to improve myself.

I am from Orlando and moved to Jacksonville about two years ago. I am currently pursuing an Exercise Science Degree from UNF.  I am passionate about helping other people in school, exercise, and life.  I love sports and like to stay active as much as I can.  I used to play rugby for UNF but had to take a break due to injuries.  I've only been at Bailey's a short time, but I really enjoy working here and the work environment.  I have worked a lot of jobs and this by far is my favorite.  I am glad to be a part of the team!
