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!

Play Area Attendant Kinesha Battles

Kinesha Battles - Play Area Attendant

My name is Kinesha Battles and I recently joined the Bailey's crew as a Play Area Attendant. I’ve always loved children and fitness, so working here has been a dream! I graduated from the Florida School For The Deaf and Blind in 2010 then went on to volunteer and work as a paraprofessional in Duval County Public schools. I also graduated from Florida State College at Jacksonville where I obtained my Associates of Arts, then transferred to UNF where I’ll be studying to become a Nutritionist. I started my fitness journey back in 2011. Over the years, I’ve lost 100, gained back 100, lost 80 then gained back 80, so like any other journey, I’ve fallen. This is my 3rd weight loss attempt and I intend on making it my last. Eight months later and I am down to nearly 100 pounds. I look forward to growing at Bailey's with children and learning different ways to better my health and fitness.
