Go to a class and follow my steps, come join the Zumba Fitness Party!
My purpose for this article is to explain the events that make this announcement such a miracle.
We have a new location and will be moving and expanding our business, our vision and our mission.
As exciting as this is to us, we know that in this move there will be some suffering. By suffering I mean, that this whole vision for a holistic personal training company is a vision from God. In that I understand that there will be some people that will think that this vision is cheesy, hooky, or just an advertising ploy to get more people in the gym from the buckle of the Bible belt. I assure you that if you know me or anything about this company that that is incorrect. We do believe that if you are a follower of Christ you will stand to benefit in a greater way as our passion for pursuing God in all that we do may somehow inspire you to do the same. If you are not a follower of Christ, it is our desire that you will stand to be inspired and affected by a fitness company that wants to, and will love like Christ. In that there will never be any judgment or negative communication of what it means to live for Christ.
If I can I would like to take you on the trip on how this vision and new building came to be.
We came to Nashville from Ohio just over 3 years ago, after doing the “two cars, new house, accumulating debt Christian lifestyle”. Following what we thought was the norm in Christian living. Needless to say we weren’t fulfilled in that place. Seeking longterm employment while pursuing physical pleasures wasn’t what God had in store for us. After seeking the Lord on a job change, He heard us and gave us a vision that would lead us to Nashville–but not after a lot of hardships and trials. Being refined by the Lord is a great, painful and exciting ride as you learn what you can be when you fully surrender to a loving, caring God.
We are now offering you a way for you to get your fitness in for the day and for your children to use their energy! During our childcare, your child will have the opportunity to get their exercise as well. We will not place them in front of a tv and ask them to be quiet. We want them to be able to be active and learn the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. We will offer a healthy snack, show some fun exercise for their age, and show them things they can do at home instead of watching tv. We hope this will be a great experience for the whole family.

We offer personalized nutrition consultation services to help you achieve your goals in health and fitness. Most people do not understand the food that they are putting into their bodies, in fact, most people cannot pronounce half of the ingredients on the labels of the food they eat. Our consultation services help to teach you about food and provide guidance on a short or long term regimen that can be geared to specifically address and heal issues with your body or provide a long term way of eating that will promote health and disease resistance. With a willing and determined spirit, we can guide you to foods that will dramatically improve the way you feel.
We have a new program to introduce for the summer. It will go from June 1st to September 1st.

Whether it is a week long or you decide to do a month, it will be every day for $300/week. Price includes food, childcare, and unlimited attendance to classes at the gym for 1 month. Contact us for details and multi-person discounts.
Does music help you through a tough workout? If so, Fitness Rave is the class for you. It is a fast paced aerobic, plyometric and strength training workout based around a playlist of the best kind of pump-up music there is–Dubstep. In one hour we will progress, with the music, through a series of exercises guaranteed to get your blood flowing and your muscles burning. From jumping and lunging to killer core and stretching, this workout will wear you out while having a blast, raving to tunes from artists like Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, and Flux Pavilion. Don’t be confused, this isn’t Zumba! We aren’t dancing, but the exercises will work along with the beat!
Of the most common food borne infections, half are found in poultry, pork, beef, and other meat products. A study, as noted by the Washington Post, showed the pathogens that have the greatest burden on society as a whole.
In order of ranking, the study found that the greatest burden economically was from campylobacter in poultry which sickens approximately 600,000 people per year and costs $1.3 billion. In second place was toxoplasma in pork, a nasty parasite that costs an approximate $1.2 billion per year. Third ranked was listeria in deli meats at a cool $1.1 billion a year. All told, the top ten pathogens tied to specific foods cost society approximately $8.1 billion in one year.
Herbs and spices, though small additions, are nutritional powerhouses. They are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and of course, excellent taste! Here is a brief overview of some of our favorite spices that maybe you haven’t tried before:
Turmeric - Turmeric goes nicely with poultry and in Indian cuisine, but I think you can add it to just about anything. Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, a natural antiseptic, a natural antibacterial, a liver detoxifier, and it has been shown effective in preventing, slowing, and stopping cancer.
We are excited to introduce a new challenge today. For the next four (4) weeks the
challenge will be based on nutrition. Please contact us with any questions.

**this first week is about getting foods out of your home before you start the lists)
Turmeric is one of the most powerful and beneficial spices that you can consume. Dr. David Frawely, founder and director of the American Institute for Vedic Studies in Santa Fe, New Mexico says this about turmeric:
“If I had only one single herb to depend upon for all possible health and dietary needs, I would without much hesitation choose the Indian spice Turmeric. There is little it cannot do in the realm of healing and much that no other herb is able to accomplish.
