TNB-Fitness is a phenomenal all-womens gym designed to help the Nashville community! Another gym worth looking into
Just an update, I LOVED NAC but unfortunately they just closed suddenly. So no longer an option.
7 Minutes is a new gym that opened up right before the pandemic last year. Modern, clean, and classes that start every 7 minutes (get it). It’s a great spot if you’re located in East Nashville or anywhere in Nashville.
Get Fit On The Go off of Nolensville Pike (near Lennox Village) It’s an amazing studio gym with real results! Also a wonderful community!
D1 that just opened its new facility in West Nashville, in OneCity! Also has a location in Cool Springs- the best “family-feel, killer-workout” gym around!
JP Weightlifting. Coach Jennifer will train you in person or online. She in a Champion Olympic Weightlifting champion and will train where you will feel safe, strong and seen.
I’ve been going to H Dub Athletics for 5 years and it’s an incredible gym filled with awesome humans — should absolutely be added to the list!
I think you should include the Gordon JCC on your list of Fitness Centers. Similar equipment, facility and cost as the YMCA. Has tennis courts and both indoor and outdoor pools.
MADabolic Nashville over in Berry Hill is a must check out as well!
QNTM has been an amazing place for me! They have two locations with FREE parking; The Gulch (QNTM Fit Life) and the new location (QNTM Music City) on the entire 3rd floor of the 4th & Church building with all new incredible high end equipment! They also have amazing recovery items like heated sauna, red light therapy, hydrotherapy, zero gravity chairs and massage chairs so you can do everything in one place. The trainers are fabulous! I highly recommend working out with Ashton Galloway! Everyone is incredibly kind and helpful. I love my QNTM fam!
