Created by fitness trainer and life coach Dr. John Spencer Ellis, and conducted by ISSA certified trainer Josh Allen, the Nashville Adventure Boot Camp program shepherds women to physical fitness with motivational workout regimens and nutritional counseling. Before the camp starts, trainers take your measurements and body-fat percentage before hopping into a curious pod, leaping into the future, and comparing them to those of the trimmer post-camp you. In the interim, the four-week workout regimen cycles through circuit training, jogging, kickboxing, and yoga to surprise and challenge muscles. During inclement weather and unforeseen renaissance festivals, sessions move into a 10,000-square-foot heated and air-conditioned facility, complete with showers and bathrooms.
Fitness Together pairs up personal trainers with goal-oriented clients. Customized workout plans help them reach such fitness milestones as benching a certain amount of weight, running a marathon, or crab-walking a 5K. Sessions combines resistance and cardio training with nutritional advice.
The Gordon JCC's outdoor swimming pool, open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, is a watery, Olympic-size wonderland big enough to fit plenty of laps, synchronized swims, or Nessie babies. Bat butterflicticly across the water to master swimming's most difficult stroke, or hone your sidestroke while chopping water into confetti with a swift scissor kick. A game of tennis on the JCC's well-maintained courts will dry soggy socks and keep little-used racquets as lithe and limber as the day they were strung. The center's opening and closing hours are generous.
