Shawn Seymour  -  Club 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!
