Spotlight: Peak12Sports

As a parent and someone passionate about maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle for my family, my ears perked up when I first heard about Peak12Sports and what they're doing for our community. Nicholas Gonyea and Michael Sizemore have teamed up to create a fitness program to help "Non-Athletes become Athletes and Athletes become SUPER-Athletes."

For the athletes, Peak12 will help improve your strength and performance bringing you to the next level. For the non-athletes though, Peak12 can provide the tools and know-how to feel confident and comfortable playing sports while providing the physical exercise your body needs. 

According to a statement from the American Heart Association, about 4% to 6% of children and teens in the USA are severely obese, and yet there are very few effective options for helping these kids reach a healthy weight.  Peak12Sports recognizes the need for fitness and nutrition training for adolescents and has ...

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 ...

Product Review - The GRID

Product Review - The GRID
By Shaun Daugherty
Owner Fusion Performance & Fitness

If I had to pick my absolute favorite piece of equipment in my studio there is no doubt that it would be The GRID. We use these foam rollers at the beginning of each session, during the session and to finish out each session. It’s no exaggeration for me to say how much I love this product! A couple years ago as my running interest increased I started experiencing some overuse injuries that really concerned me. After consulting with my chiropractor the plan was to implement more stretching, more massages and daily hot baths to keep my lower back and glut muscles from getting overly tight. All of this worked to a point that I was able to continue running, but the daily pain was a reminder that I was still missing something.

It wasn't until I heard ...
