Spotlight: Sunflower Cafe - Fresh, Local & Delicious

There is nothing better than a good meal with good friends!  So, when a friend recently invited me to lunch at a new restaurant in town I was thrilled.  It was called Sunflower Café.  I thought, Ooh! That sounds yummy! I wonder what kind of food do they have?  Then she told me it’s a vegetarian restaurant!  What?!?!?! 

Hearing we were going to a vegetarian restaurant didn't exactly make my mouth water, but I was willing to give it a try.  I pulled in the parking lot of the unassuming yellow building in Berry Hill, pulled around back, and quickly saw that the place was packed!  I found a spot, found my friend and stepped inside.  The first thing I noticed was the décor.  It’s modern, clean and straight forward, much like the food.  We made our way through the short line and started eyeing the ...

SPOTLIGHT: Robin Frazier, Owner of Franklin Massage Center

SPOTLIGHT: Robin Frazier, Owner of Franklin Massage Center

No matter where we have gone lately or who we have talked with, it seems one name keeps popping up?  Robin Frazier! 

“Do you know Robin Frazier?”

“Have you been to Franklin Massage Center?” 

“Have you ever had one of their therapeutic deep tissue massages?”

Seems as though the name Robin Frazier has come up in conversation ten times in the last month or so!  From friends, from business owners, from race events… everyone is talking about Robin.  So, who is this Robin Frazier?!?!?

I was thrilled when Tammy at Fleet Feet offered to make the introduction.  Robin Frazier is the owner of Franklin Massage Center and is “famous” for her amazing massages.  Now, these are not your typical spa-like massages.  Rather these are true therapeutic deep tissue massages designed to help athletes recover and provide relief to areas that may be stressed or causing pain. She has successfully become ...

Spotlight: Knockout Fitness

Spotlight: Knockout Fitness

Boxing is an excellent form of exercise.  Cardio, strength training, coordination, stamina…you get it all.  Many fitness programs have incorporated some boxing techniques but to get the true benefit, you need to experience the real deal.  Like Knockout Fitness in Nashville!

Frank Wood, owner of Knockout Fitness and a retired professional boxer 26-4 (18KO), is serving up a workout that will get you results.  During a recent visit to his boxing training facility, I got to see him in action.  Wow!  Now I know why this program is guaranteed to get you results!

First, let’s talk about the facility.  It’s just off 8th Avenue South and extremely easy to find.  I took I-65 North and got off at the Armory Drive exit.  I took me less than 5 minutes to get there from the exit.  It’s a very nice unassuming building with small rooms and ...

My Koko Experience

My Koko Experience

I had the opportunity to visit the Franklin location of Koko FitClub a few months ago.  At first glance, it appears to be just another workout facility equipped with state of the art exercise machines.  But it’s anything but ordinary.  Koko FitClub uses a sophisticated, computerized system that gives new meaning to the word "customized" and provides you with a fitness experience that is truly different from the ordinary gym experiences of today. How you ask?  Well, think your own personal strength, cardio and nutrition plan that produces and tracks 30 minute workouts all with the goal of building and preserving your body's lean muscle!

Your experience begins when you are given a “Koko Key” that is inserted into the machines to begin your workout.

Koko FitClub ACTIVENOW

The electronic “trainer” will then guide you through your workout, providing the exact reps, time and technique needed.  The trainer will also provide ...
