How long have you been a member of TNBFITNESS?

Exactly one year.

What attracted you to TNBFITNESS/What motivated you to join TNB?

I have known Tash Weddle for years, and have always admired her personally and professionally.  It was time for me to put some structure around getting fit and strong, so I immediately thought of TNB Fitness.

How do you feel now compared to when you started training at TNB?

I feel like I have a much better mastery of my personal health and fitness.  I feel 100 times stronger… It amazes me what the human body will do when you work with it.  For the first time in my life, working out 3-5 times a week has become an engrained habit.  

How has TNB helped you reach your goals?

I at first thought that this journey was about weight loss, and I’ve learned that it is not fundamentally about that.  It has made me view myself and my relationship to my body differently.  It has proven to me that I can achieve what I set my mind to.  My husband keeps telling me that it has altered my shape, in a great way.  Losing some weight has been a happy byproduct.  

What advice would you give to a person looking to join TNB?

I would call on the famous Nike slogan – best slogan ever written – of “Just Do It.” This is a safe place.  Tash, Gabe, Marielle, and Mckenna are always looking out for your best interest and your safety.  TNB is for every woman, every shape and size.  They meet you where you are.  And serendipity came into play and I happen to have a bunch of girlfriends who are training there, so we genuinely have fun.

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday follows “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday,” two days devoted to consumerism, sales, and buying for the holidays. Giving Tuesday is a day to give back to others, the community, and shift focus from consumerism onto paying it forward for others!

The New Beginnings Center, local non-profit that offers nutrition and fitness coaching to low-income women in Nashville, will be participating in Giving Tuesday. If you see fit, please donate to New Beginnings on Tuesday, November 27th, and help continue the mission of empower women to change the course of their lives!

Is it true that being unfit is worse than smoking? The answer is… YES.

Bottom line: "Survival of the fittest", that's a phrase that you would usually expect to read in a biology textbook, not in a study about human health and longevity... but wait: humans are animals and in the animal kingdom it's the fittest who survive - against that background, let me ask you: Is it really surprising that being 'super fit' vs. 'unfit' increases your all-cause mortality risk by a factor 5x, and hence 3.6-fold more than smoking in the same cohort of N = 122,007 patients of the Cleveland Clinic who were screened for their cardiorespiratory fitness?

How long have you been a member of TNBFITNESS?

Around 4 months

What attracted you to TNB FITNESS/What motivated you to join TNB?

I have always been a daily early morning exerciser and about 18 months ago, I changed jobs and began working out at a different YMCA in order to accommodate an earlier work start. That change in routine altered the fitness regimen I had been on and, with the stress of a new job, I found myself with some weight gain and had definitely lost strength and leanness. So when I happened into a conversation at a cocktail party where words like “transformational” and “life changing” were being used, I asked what they were talking about — TNB Fitness of course! The timing was perfect. I called Tash, went in for an evaluation and the rest is history. 

How do you feel now compared to when you started training at TNB?

I feel great. I’m starting to get my lean muscle mass back, my energy is much higher and I know I am working smartly and safely with the individualized workouts and attentive trainers.

How has TNB helped you reach your goals?

My goals were to get leaner, stronger and, of course, lose a few pounds. I’m a “rules” girl and I’ve been very consistent and done everything Tash has suggested with both exercise and nutrition. It is truly a balance and one does not work without the other. It was taking longer than I wanted to start seeing results but I knew that I was doing the right things so I persevered. Now my clothes are fitting better and the scale is moving in the right direction. It feels wonderful.

What advice would you give to a person looking to join TNB?

It is a most encouraging atmosphere and the attentiveness to form by the trainers is absolutely unparalleled. The staff is so knowledgeable about physiology, safety and what women of a certain age need to get and stay strong. If you want to stay motivated in a compassionate yet challenging environment, TNB Fitness is the place for you. I love it!

Complete this sentence - TNB is... 

...a place that empowers me to be my best self. I love the social enterprise aspect that our fees help fund New Beginnings which gives other women the opportunity to take charge of their health and wellness. That’s the key before most any other change can be made.

Client Last words -

I’m a very goal oriented person. Nothing feels better to me than moving up to the next level or a heavier weight because it means I’m getting stronger.
