When we say “Building a fit community, one friend at a time”, we really mean it! Our gym is full of people with different experience levels and different fitness goals, coming together as a community to workout and encourage one another. We don’t want a daily workout to feel intimidating, but rather empowering! We’ve put together our most frequently asked questions below to help get you ready for your first workout at Fit Factory. If you don’t see your questions answered here, feel free to shoot us an email and we’ll answer quickly.
Once you’ve read through the FAQs, check out our schedule and give us a try! Your first class is free of charge and free of commitment. We think you’ll stay but it’s totally up to you!
Yes. Although our large/open space allows us to accommodate a large group, we do cap our classes in order to provide the best coaching/experience possible. Click the yellow button on the homepage to sign up!
Yes. We have two showers and two more changing rooms.
Most days the entire workout (warmup through cool down) lasts 50 minutes.
No. Of course it will be hard. Working out needs to be hard. But, all the movements we do at Fit Factory can be scaled or modified to meet any fitness level.
No way! You’ll find that as your fitness increases, you start performing the workouts with heavier weights and less rest. This means that even the fittest person in the gym gets a killer workout.
Of course. Our coaches will be happy to come up with alternative exercises for you that don’t aggravate your injury.
We offer open gym from 3-4p on weekdays. Occasionally, we announce in our Facebook group that we will have open gym on a Sunday.
No. Lifting weights does not make people "bulky." Diet is the real culprit. If a person eats well and is still “bulky” by your standards, it probably means they have lifted super heavy weights for YEARS in order to get that. We will be burning tons of calories and building lean muscles at Fit Factory.
No. Although sometimes people on social media “leak” the day’s workout, we intentionally do not post it. If you’re only doing what you like in the gym, you’re not doing what you need!
We have multiple options you can choose from to fit your preference and lifestyle! First month trial is only $99. After that, you can sign up for $169/mo if you're willing to commit to at least 6 months, and $149/mo if you're willing to commit to at least 12 months. If the unlimited thing doesn't make sense, we offer a 12 pack of classes (to be used whenever) for $189.
Yes, we'd love to meet you. First class is only free for Nashville residents. Out of town guests can buy a class for $19.
A water bottle, towel, and a good attitude!
You can start out in any athletic shoe that fits. However, you'll soon see that running shoes are not great for weightlifting, and weightlifting shoes are terrible for running. We recommend a cross training shoe because it will perform adequately for all the tasks we do at Fit Factory.
