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 such options as aqua classes, indoor cycling, Pilates, body toning, aerobics, and weight training. The morning workouts are followed by a 15-minute stretch class and a healthy lunch.
Monday through Friday our typical afternoon begins with weight lifting or toning classes, followed by aerobics, aqua aerobics, body toning, yoga or stretch, as well as educational workshops. After dinner, you may enjoy an evening activity, such as arts and crafts, bingo, self-defense, local entertainment, dancing, 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. Every guest is free to relax in his/her room, by the pool, or in our TV and reading lounges.

Regularly scheduled classes on nutrition, cooking, health, and fitness are an important part of your stay at this fitness and health spa. We will advise you on an exercise regimen, which will continue to benefit you long after your stay with us. Our informative Taking the Program Home lecture is given by the fitness department. This lecture and its handouts focus on a fitness and nutrition plan that can be easily implemented when you go home. There will be time to ask questions, and you will receive helpful information about the exercises that you performed while at the Spa. We want you to continue with healthy eating and fitness habits when you return home. We hope that what you learned during your stay at Tennessee Fitness Spa will allow you to create positive changes that will last a lifetime. Additional workshops that may be offered (but are not limited to): The Tour and History of the Natural Bridge, Healthy Meal Tips, Walking and Exercise Tips, Digestive Health, Healthy Living, Meal Planning 101, as well as a healthy cooking demo.
