The fitness program at our weight loss camp

Tennessee Fitness Spa is a week-long, all-inclusive health and fitness program that combines healthy meals, clean and comfortable lodging, and a full schedule of workout classes 5 1/2 days a week. Our weekly program begins every Sunday and you are encouraged to stay for as many weeks as possible.

Monday through Saturday our day begins with a healthy breakfast, including plenty of protein, healthy carbs, and a self-serve buffet of fresh fruits. The daily exercise program begins by 8:00 a.m., with a warm-up and a 60-minute, fast-paced land- or pool-walk. For the next 3 hours, you may choose between aqua classes, indoor cycling, Pilates, body toning, aerobics, weight training, and Wallyball. The morning workouts are followed by a 15-minute stretch class and a healthy lunch.

Monday through Friday our typical afternoon begins with weightlifting or toning classes, followed by aerobics, aqua aerobics, body toning, meditation, yoga or stretch, as well as educational workshops. After dinner, you may enjoy an evening activity, such as arts and crafts, bingo, self-defense, dancing, karaoke, or a special workshop. These activities are provided so that you will receive the maximum benefit from our health and wellness weight loss camp, however, none of our activities are mandatory.
