    Welcome to Springtime Fitness


    Located in the Green Hills neighborhood of Nashville, TN, Springtime Fitness is a state-of-the art, mindful movement studio offering  Pilates and GYROTONIC® instruction.


    We also utilize the Redcord® suspension system to augment functional strength training, Bellicon rebounders to intensify cardio conditioning and balance work, and Jungshin ® training utilizing swords to help focus and relax the mind while enhancing the body’s power, strength and flexibility through a martial arts inspired warrior workout.


    We offer privates, duets, semi-privates and a variety of dynamic small group training sessions. We apply the principles of these time-tested, intelligent whole-body movement systems to transform the way you look, feel and perform.



    Our semi-private and group training sessions are small so you always receive plenty of personal attention.


    With hundreds of progressive exercises taught on and off multiple pieces of apparatus (equipment), both methods are highly adaptive and therefore ideal for everyone. You learn to move better so that you not only look and feel better – you play better and avoid injury.  Your body learns to do just about everything better – daily living, sports, as well as other forms of exercise and leisure activities.


    Whether you are looking to simply get into shape, manage stress, reduce back pain, bounce back from an injury and/or boost athletic performance, we can help.



    About Us

    At Springtime Fitness we believe that everyone, regardless of age, fitness level, previous sports or movement experience can increase their quality of life by improving their overall physical ability. We are dedicated to quality teaching so that what you learn in the studio can be carried over to enhance your daily life and physical activities.

    Pilates: the ultimate mind-body exercise


    Pilates is a unique method of whole-body conditioning that offers a complete workout for both your body and mind.  The targeted movements in Pilates strengthen your deep core musculature by aligning the body from the inside out.  Exercises are performed on multiple, specifically designed apparatus (equipment) allowing for assistance or resistance through springs.


    We are a fully equipped studio and use a variety of apparatus (equipment) plus mat work and props to fully customize a personal training program appropriate for your individual needs and goals.


    Pilates has long been recognized for its effectiveness in addressing back pain, and is an effective, low impact cross training option for a wide variety of sports and leisure activities, as well as a fun and invigorating workout for healthy bodies. Postural symmetry, core strength, improved movement mechanics and body awareness, increased strength and flexibility are some of the key benefits of Pilates training.


    We feature Balanced Body equipment:

    GYROTONIC® Method

    The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® Method: a new approach to exercise for mind, body and spirit.


    The GYROTONIC® Method is an integrated movement system that can greatly enhance your overall sense of being and feeling of happiness.  Carefully crafted exercise sequences integrate fluid, rhythmic, circular and spiraling movements with specific breathing patterns to encourage full body engagement and joint articulation without compression and jarring.  The system addresses joint stiffness, reduces muscle and back pain, encourages balance, coordination, strength and flexibility with efficiency and range-of-motion to enhance your daily life.


    Exercises are performed on specialized equipment that provide smooth, even resistance on the handle unit and pulley tower - a weight based pulley system that provides both traction and resistance to simultaneously stretch, strengthen and mobilize the entire body.



    GYROKINESIS® exercises, done on a mat and chair rather than equipment, are an important part of the system and can easily become part of your home routine.


    The system is highly adaptive and designed to meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities.  GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® exercises are currently practiced worldwide and students come from all walks of life.

    Bellicon: the ultimate rebounder


    We utilize Bellicon rebounders in the studio and feature it in our dynamic small group training sessions because this custom formulated bungee suspension system allows for superb, low-impact cardio conditioning and balance training.  The stable yet pliable surface is excellent for training core muscles as you automatically engage and tone your abdominals, back, side, buttock and pelvic muscles with each bounce plus it’s fun and gentle on your joints.


    Form follows function and the rebounder is a great tool for those looking to improve and achieve their running best while reducing the risk of strain and injury.


    The vertical up and down motion of rebounding is especially beneficial for the lymphatic system and is recommended as both detoxifying and immune boosting.


    We feature Bellicon equipment:






    Redcord®: the ultimate suspension training (wake up the right muscles)


    The Redcord® Suspension System was created in Norway and is currently used in both rehabilitative and cross-training settings worldwide.


    The system utilizes cords and slings to support and challenge as you move through a series of exercises.  It is similar to other suspension systems in that you work with gravity and your own body weight to create challenge.

    The main difference and brilliance of Redcord® is its ability to offload one’s body weight to provide support where and when needed.


    This enables the instructor to quickly identify and target muscular imbalances (or trouble spots).  You can wake up dormant muscles, free up restrictions and thereby deeply challenge your body.  We have found Redcord® to be highly effective and efficient way to further augment functional strength training, providing a unique and superb cross training tool in our private, duet, semi-private and small group training sessions.


    We feature Redcord® equipment:




    Jungshin Fitness®: moving meditation with a sword


    Jungshin Fitness® is a dynamic, full body workout using a wooden practice sword.  This legendary tool from martial arts helps to increase mental focus and the ability to be radically present – even as you are kicking, jumping, stretching and targeting your core.


    When you let the sword speak, the body responds, the mind quiets and the results shine.  One sword, one body, a complete physiological reset that revitalizes and energizes the body and mind to create a body that looks amazing and moves with confidence and energy.


    Movements are fun, warrior-like, energizing exercises designed to optimize your body from the inside out.

She's an exceptional teacher and a stickler for form, so she makes sure that you are doing things properly at all times and that you understand why you are doing them that way! She also helps me to continually evolve to the next level in her gentle, yet no-nonsense way. She is incredibly attuned to the individual needs of her clients, more so than any instructor I've ever encountered, and she custom tailors her instruction to address exactly what her clients need. This is true whether you are in a private lesson or taking a group lesson from her. It is for these reasons that I would recommend her to clients of all ages and abilities. No matter where you are starting from or what your goals are, Lisa will help you reach them. " Eunice L., attorney

    These few pictures are only a small sample of the enormous sense of community that was established by Springtime Fitness, when it opened in the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.


    The private door that led down to the basement garden studio took people away from their busy work life. And it provided them a private opportunity to "disconnect" and focus on themselves.


    We feel fortunate to have been there to help our clients, who became our friends, reach new goals in their personal and professional lives. Let's just say a lot was experienced in that tiny space and it provided everyone involved with it a great opportunity.


    We do miss everyone in SF but know you are are not forgotten, as we establish Springtime Fitness in Nashville, TN.


    Love to Everyone,


    Lisa, Peter, Diego, Buddy and Ramona
