CrossFit Franklin / Team Fitness Franklin boasts 16,000 square feet of space that encourages a healthy lifestyle. Expansive rooms with sleek hardwood or padded flooring host group fitness classes that include spin, yoga, Pilates, Zumba and TRX, a boot-camp-style cardio and toning class. A number of onsite amenities provide an upscale gym experience. Shower towels, workout towels, and towels used to wipe down equipment or your gym partner are all complimentary. Post-workout, guests can climb into the steam room and let their muscles relax or stop by the smoothie bar for a quick pick-me-up.
The massage therapists at En Touch Massage practice seven modalities that relieve tension in a targeted, expedient manner. Before each massage, clients describe their issue and what they hope to achieve with massage. Then, the therapist tailors a wholly unique bodywork session based on the information from the consultation and from what they’re feeling with their own hands. The therapists commonly focus on muscle strains that result from everyday, repetitive motions, such as washing dishes. Whereas Swedish massages vanquish tension, deep-tissue massages dig far into muscles to dissolve tightness and knots.
Licensed massage therapist Chris MacEwen sees massages as more than just a luxury reserved for the privileged: to him, they are a legitimate way to manage pain. As a result, he focuses on the therapeutic aspect of massages. For instance, he has mastered modalities such as active release technique—a technique designed to break up scar tissue, boost mobility, and unburden pinched nerves.
