Regional Manager Shawn Seymour

Shawn Seymour  -  Regional Manager

Shawn started working for Bailey's Health and Fitness in April 1997 as a Fitness Consultant at our Jax Beach location. He then moved on to become a Gym Manager at our (then) Atlantic Blvd. location, then St. Johns Bluff and Jax Beach locations. In 2000, Shawn became our GM of Operations, helping the Baileys oversee the day-to-day operations of all locations. He recently rejoined our team in January 2010 after leaving in December 2008 to pursue other opportunities in Asheville, NC. We sure are glad to have him back!


One of Shawn's famous quotes he likes to share with our members and fellow employees is "You can find weights, machines and cardio at pretty much any gym in town, but what separates us from our competition is our great customer service, extra clean facility, and our passion to help our members succeed". Stop by and see Shawn and his staff next time you are in the gym. They will be more than happy to help you in any way they can!


On a personal note, Shawn loves spending time with his family and friends, boating, and traveling - especially in the Caribbean! Shawn and his wife Johna have 2 beautiful children, and enjoy every second of parenthood!

Hello! My name is Carly. I moved to St. Augustine this past year and joined the Bailey's family shortly after.

I have been working out at Bailey's almost every day since. Prior to moving, I worked at a children's museum in Connecticut for over six years. During that time I was an active member of my organization's gold rated Step Up for Health committee. I am passionate about health and wellness and dedicated to helping others grow and reach their individuals goals. If there is anything I can do to help you reach your fitness goals, please don't hesitate to reach out. I look forward to seeing you around Bailey's!

Cashier Will Owens

Will Owens - Cashier


Hi my name is Will Owens. I am eighteen years old and currently participating in a Business transfer program at Gaston Community College. My first time in a gym was at my high school East Lincoln. I took a weight training class and ended up really liking the experience. This class led me to join a local gym where I was very consistent and really enjoyed working out. When Covid occurred, it led to gyms closing which really hurt my motivation. I tried working out at home but it just wasn't the same. Shortly after I moved Saint Augustine, the gyms were reopened, which led me to regaining my previous motivation. I ended up finding Bailey's gym because of a friend that also has a membership. My new membership inspired me to want a job where most of my daily activity's already occurred. Now my goal is to make members' experiences at the gym everything I would expect.

Sweat PT Director Nate Franklin

Nate Franklin - Sweat PT Director

Originally from Alabama, I grew up in the country and have always enjoyed being outdoors hunting or shooting at the range. I moved to Jacksonville, Florida in 2000. I went straight to work in the automotive industry, where I remained for 17 years. In 2014, I was fortunate enough to come on board with Sweat PT as a trainer. After just one year working as a trainer I was granted the opportunity to move up in the company and become the fitness director at Bailey’s Orange Park location. Within my time in Orange Park I dedicated myself to my job and my clients, and in January of 2018, was once again blessed with the opportunity to progress in my career at Sweat PT as Bailey’s opened their brand new St. Augustine location. Fitness has always been my passion. My goal is to teach each client how valuable personal training truly is, and what amazing things it can do for them. I love to see people succeed, and I will do whatever it takes to see my clients not only reach, but exceed their goals.
