County Commissioner Sabrena Smedley and her husband, Mark Smedley, have acquired two Pure Barre fitness locations.
Commissioner Smedley said she has been a regular at Pure Barre for the past three years. She said she heard last July that the owner was ready to sell the franchises. The Smedleys closed on the deal in early December.
She stated, "It's been crazy, but it's fun. There is a tremendous staff in place."
One location is on Jenkins Road in East Brainerd and the other is on Manufacturers Road in North Chattanooga.
She said she is still going full blast on her Sabrena Realty Associates. She said, "I got two listings this week. One sold in seven hours. The other I had three offers within 12 hours."
She also said she has no plans to slow down on her political career. A rumored candidate for county mayor in 2022, she said, "I love serving the residents of District 7, but I am open to whatever God has for me."
