Fit One Five, a local community gym, held a ribbon cutting in honor of its recent opening on Wednesday in partnership with Williamson, Inc.
Fit One Five describes itself as a “community driven fitness” gym offering group classes, personal training, recovery tools and nutrition coaching. The gym, located off of Seaboard Lane in Cool Springs, officially opened for business in January.
Owners Austin Gaskell and Tim and Ashley Rainer are all certified personal trainers with 30 years of combined experience between them. The trio all come from different corporate fitness backgrounds but felt it was time to branch out on their own.
“All of us met in corporate fitness quite a few years ago,” Gaskell said. “Our mindset and idea of where we wanted to go with this space really connected well.”
The gym’s name, Fit One Five, was carefully chosen to reflect the area they serve. Gaskell and his business partners’ goal is to help people come up with a plan and reach their fitness goals.
“Fit One Five is connected to the 615 area code, the Nashville area code,” Gaskell said. “We wanted to play off that. Our slogan is community-driven fitness. Whether it’s the community inside these walls or outside these walls, we wanted to get connected.”
Gaskell, a Murfreesboro native and Middle Tennessee State University grad, knew in his late teens personal training was a career he wanted to pursue.
“Everything that I’ve done since I was probably 19 years old and became a personal trainer has led me to this moment,” he said.
The Fit One Five owners also described their space as a “minimalistic gym” that also has an inviting lounge and recovery space for those who might feel overwhelmed showing up for a workout.
“We guide people that may not know exactly what to do to get started to show them that their body is capable of more than what they think,” Gaskell said. “We’re a private training facility. We don’t have the sexiest equipment around, but we’ve got everything that’s going to be functional and what you would need to get your body to move.”
Fit One Five is located at 318 Seaboard Dr., Suite 303, in Franklin.
