Title Boxing Club began as a cocktail of talents: the fighting prowess of former professional boxer Danny Campbell, the acumen of businessman Tom Lyons, and the top-of-the-line gear from Title Boxing, LLC owners David Hanson and Tony Carbajo. Hanson and Carbajo provided the gym?s equipment and outfitted the first location with an onsite pro shop. Campbell put together two signature Power Hour workouts, one based on boxing and the other on kickboxing. Lyons took care of the franchising, and the club has spread all over the nation.
The Clarksville location boasts 60 100-pound heavy bags, installed into floor-to-ceiling black metal frames. Trainers burn students' calories with boxing and kickboxing techniques applied to those heavy bags, spicing up workouts with the inclusion of speed bags, the double end bag, and free weights. When the workout's over, students can head to the pro-shop area, where padded cage walls neatly separate the goods from the rest of the gym and provide an excellent place to duke it out over whose T-shirt looks better.
Nashville Mixed Martial Arts' experienced instructors keep students fighting fit during cardio kickboxing bootcamp and mixed martial arts classes that unfold over more than 7,000 square feet of mat space. The schedule's one-hour cardio kickboxing bootcamp sessions turn hearts into war drums as students batter heavy thai-style bags and tone muscles while performing pushups, crunches, and pantomimes of favorite heavy-metal lyrics. Mixed martial arts classes blend up a mixture of brazilian jujitsu, muay thai kickboxing, wrestling, and boxing in every 60-minute class, teaching basic moves and defensive strategies as students improve their balance, coordination, and strength. Call ahead for scheduled MMA times and reservations.
Adolescent ascenders, ages 7–12, can safely channel their inner mountain goat on more than 12,000 square feet of scalable surfaces at Nashville School of Climbing's summer camps. For three hours a day over five days, skilled instructors guide junior climbers through basics skills, terminology, and interactive games. Rockhoppers' Camp (ages 7–9) and Cliffhangers' Camp (ages 10–12) boast a three to one camper to counselor ratio, and give parents plenty of free time to catch up on all the cartoons they TiVo'd. The cost of the camp includes harness and shoe rental, instruction, and a daily snack.
Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.
