Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Training

Where are your personal training locations?

If you’re seeking personal training in Nashville (or the surrounding area), our personal trainers work with clients at multiple locations in Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin, and Antioch. We can also do in-home training if you prefer.

We do not own a gym. We use existing facilities (where you do not have to have a gym membership) so we can concentrate on you! Call 615-442-7700 to find out which location would be most convenient for you: Green Hills, Cool Springs, Downtown, Music Row, The Gulch, Maryland Farms (Brentwood), Hickory Hollow, or in your home.

How much does personal training cost?

Personal training fees range from $25 to $95 per session, depending on which trainer is selected, the location of the workouts, and whether you book a 30 or 60-minute session. We do not require any packages or contracts — you may pay as you go.

The optional online nutrition coaching service costs $99 per month, but we give a 50% discount to our personal training clients if you’d like to add it. P.S. You should!

Do I have to join a gym?

No, we have special arrangements with the facilities that we utilize so our customers do not have to purchase gym memberships. No contracts, no packages, nothing to “sign up” for.

Sounds great! What do I do to get started?

Contact Dan DeFigio, Director, at 615-442-7700, or by email (don’t forget to include your phone number). The two of you will discuss all the details of your particular situation, and together you can decide what will work best for you.
