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!
Thank you for your contribution!
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?
