About Us

It all started in 2003 in Iraq, when 2 soldiers dreamed of starting their own fitness business.  Ryan Blumhorst and Chris Braden, during their down time in the war, planned on opening a new business.  Mt. Vernon was decided as the place to start this adventure.  So, in May of 2005 Mt. Vernon Fitness was opened.  A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into this facility.  A year later in September 2006,  Ryan & Chris we given the opportunity to purchase an existing gym in Nashville.  This being Ryan’s local community, he decided that Resort to Fitness would now become Nashville Fitness.  Ryan and Amy Blumhorst bought out Chris and have tried to grow both facilities.  Our first location was on 9th Street.  In 2008 we moved to our current location 1318 Salem Road.  Ryan and Amy Blumhorst now own both gyms, along with their two boys.  Ryan & Amy enjoy providing the community with a 24 hour fitness facility.  Featuring 24 hour code access, free group classes, a free towel service and a wide variety of equipment.
