Tennessee Fitness Spa

Tennessee Fitness Spa,

A Terrific Tennessee Spa

                                                By Mimi Kazon

Some history: The last spa I went to was the Golden Door in California. It provided a week of utter bliss for $8,000. What could the Tennessee Fitness Spa, at $1,000 to $1,635, provide?
To my delight, I discovered, plenty!

You are asked to arrive and leave on a Sunday. Flying into Nashville,
 I was met by the Spa van and catnapped for the two hour trip. Immediately upon arrival, one goes to the office to check-in and receive an InBody assessment (a body composition test).  Orientation follows in the dining room at 5:15, and the evening is complete
with a delicious dinner.

 Breakfast is from 6:45 - 7:45AM.  The first morning, it was accompanied by a lecture called “Healthy on Your Feet”. By 8:00AM, the walkers were warming up in the office parking lot. Since I am slim, and walking is my New York exercise, I passed on it. My new best friend later described it as “invigorating, varied, scenic and aerobic”.

 My fave is water exercise, so I was delighted to be in the vast, indoor perfectly heated pool at 8:30AM for “Water Walking”. By 9:15, we were doing “Aqua High/Low “.  It was followed by “Aqua Delta Bells” at 9:45. Last, but by no means least, was “Aqua Stretch”. Marvelous would describe all of the classes. I spent every morning doing
more of the same.

 By 11:00AM, I was in the gym in the capable hands of a trainer, Daniel. I lifted weights, to tone my upper body, for 20 minutes. The next day we worked on the lower parts. The following day, we were again working the upper muscles. I was so happy, and even happier to learn at the end that I had lost eleven inches.

 My food choice was the standard menu. At breakfast, I usually chose oatmeal. The other possibilities included French toast, scrambled eggs, a boiled egg, a ham and cheese frittata, a waffle, pancake or spinach omelet. Total calories: 500.

 Lunch, at 400 calories, could be a turkey sandwich, chicken, pork, cheese or fish. Dinner, 300 calories, was fish, meatloaf, chicken or spaghetti. At lunch and dinner, there was a great salad bar, but the daily 1200-calorie regime, did not include it.

 The meals were all nutritious; no saturated or trans fat was used. A nice note: Snacks, like a small plastic bag of celery and carrots, were available in a fridge outside the dining room.

 After lunch there were really great lectures. “Balancing Health with Nature”, by Dean, was on Monday. Here is a first: Did you know that coconut oil may provide a wide range of health benefits?  I did not.

 Before the 3:30PM “Aqua Circuit” class, one could do weights, sports conditioning, or Resistaball. At 4:15, “Aqua Stretch” class preceded my daily 5:00PM massage.

 Dinner was 6:00 till 7:00PM. By 7:15, there were programs like Self Defense, Bingo, Introduction to Opera, and a fantastic one called “Redefining Your Skin”. Did you know you should wash your face and hair with cool water? I didn’t. Did you know it takes 12 weeks for a product to show results? Or that your dermatologist should include your scalp in your full body check?

 The Tennessee Fitness Spa was a gift that kept on giving. After my departure, upon request, I received a fantastic packet of papers that included my assessment results, a Take Home Program, which listed a personal training schedule, and four fantastic pages of pictured water exercises. My nutritional notes were “Food is fuel! Eat To Live. Three small meals a day – and two healthy snacks. Always carbs and protein.”

 That was the icing on the cake –
 I loved every minute there, and you will too.
