Travel Fitness in Music City!

I know I know, people visiting Nashville — whether it’s business or pleasure — may not have fitness engagement at the top of their list when there are numerous Honkey Tonks to visit along with the boatload of historic sites and museums. Yet, I always say there are no excuses when it comes to treating your body like a temple!

So fortunately for locals and visitors Nashville is ripe with fitness activities such as running areas like the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge that spans the Cumberland River. Since I Always pack running shoes on business trips I popped up early and jogged from my downtown hotel to Nissan Stadium located on the east bank of the river. The roundtrip exercise was around four miles and gave me enough time to prepare for business meetings. On day two I was pleased to discover CYCLEBAR (The Gulch) which was close to where I was staying. The 7:30am class was packed and the vibe was energetic. I was feeling so refreshed afterwards. Trust me, there is no better way to start your day like an hour of cardio or HIIT.

Of course Nashville is also bustling with hip vegan restaurants so replenishing with organic vegan fuel was not a problem. Positive vibrations, happy people and various channels to release energy created a great equation for my health enhancement. I look forward to a return to Music City!
