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.
Ocoee Rafting earned its reputation for keeping rigorous safety guidelines over more than 36 years of riverine voyaging. Staffed by a cadre of veteran river guides, Ocoee Rafting has shared the singular exhilaration of class III and IV whitewater rafting with countless adventurers in search of rollicking outdoor enjoyment. The company shuttles its rafters to the raft entry point from the Ocoee Rafting Center, located in historical Ducktown, where the Blue Ridge Mountains swell along the horizon and the river's edge. Rafting groups delve into the wilderness of the Cherokee National Forest and brave either the tamer Middle Ocoee or the Upper Ocoee, which was the site of the 1996 Olympic whitewater competition as well as the 1991 World Series of Tom Sawyer Imitators. Additionally, a series of nearby cabin-style accommodations furnish visitors with the option of extending their rafting trip.
Murfreesboro Symphony Orchestra has spent the last three decades filling theaters to the brim with classical, fluid tunes that spill out of instruments of professional musicians. The orchestra continues to feed famished ears with notes of nourishment by hosting An Evening with Andrew Risinger, which puts the organ center stage to emit both classic and popular pieces full of texture and decibels. Unlike an ensemble of feral cats and broken mufflers, Risinger's ivory tickling will win over sonic senses with compositions such as "Rhapsody for Flute & Organ" by John Weaver and "If With All Your Hearts" from Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn. Witness the orchestra team up with the energetic conductor Kelly Corcoran for American Landscapes to pay an audible homage to the land of the free, stuffing your ear canals with musical hot dogs as violins pluck their strings to classic songs by American composers.
Launching into the Ocoee River, Sunburst Adventures' rafts of whitewater adventurers bump and glide over currents with gradients up to 50 feet per mile. An experienced guide mans the helm, offering instruction and zany anecdotes, as rafters navigate past bushes and trees and around three risky undercuts for a challenging, yet safe, excursion. Sunburst's carefully selected team of enthusiastic rafters has been taming the rapids of the Ocoee and sharing their love for the sport and the great outdoors since 1976. Groups of experienced and novice boaters quickly become familiar with a good soaking as they tackle roaring rapids such as Hell's Hole and Godzilla attempting to bend their boats in two as they jostle their way down the river's 10-mile stretch. For a more leisurely way to enjoy the natural splendor and warm waters of the river, aquatic types can tube the Lower Ocoee, which is known for expressing much calmer waters ever since it kicked its pot-of-coffee-a-day habit.
