3.) Fit-10 Fitness and Nutrition
Fit-10 was established in 2015, and quickly had a solid following of Tullahomans (and those throughout the region). Located at 205 NW Atlantic St, Fit-10 is one of only a handful of gyms in the area providing sport-specific training, nutrition, and a wide range of classes. Two stand-out elements of the gym’s programming include it’s focus on senior fitness, as well as it’s supportive and positive workout environment.
While there are plenty of fit individuals at Fit-10, walking in doesn’t feel intimidating. And as such, if you’re a total gym bro you may find a better community of hardcore weight lifters elsewhere. With that said, for a wide variety of patrons Fit-10’s range of classes and focus on establishing baseline fitness are a great sell.
Additional selling points of Fit-10 Fitness and Nutrition include the availability of corporate wellness programs as well as sport-specific work out programs for football, golf, basketball, and more.

- Good senior-focused programming
- A wide range of classes
- Professional staff
- Discounted rate for military
- Limited hours
- Not for gym bros
4.) Planet Fitness
Planet Fitness doesn’t offer the latest fitness trends or classes, but it excels enough in other ways to be one of the most popular fitness chains in America. Some of the pros of Planet Fitness membership include the ability to attend any other Planet Fitness location (and they’re all over the place). The Tullahoma location has a wide range of machines, offers hydromassage, offers tanning chairs, and is open 24/7. For a “basic” gym membership it’s hard to go wrong.
Some additional reasons we like Planet Fitness is that you know what you’re getting and membership is very affordable. If you’ve been to one Planet Fitness location, you know roughly what to expect from other locations. On top of this the Tullahoma location has a sleek modern feel and is staffed 24/7.
- You know what you’re getting
- Many machines
- Attend any Planet Fitness location with a membership
- No classes
- Not built around a particular fitness philosophy
- Doesn’t have that local “touch” that other home grown brands do
5.) Elite Conditioning
Elite Conditioning is actually located at 544 Hillsboro Blvd in Manchester, but provides a unique type of gym within the Tullahoma area. Elite Conditioning gears itself more towards hardcore power lifting, bulking up, agility and speed training, and strength training. This gym offers less variety in classes than others on our list, but is a top destination in the region for those focused on bulking up and gaining strength.
Additional perks of Elite Conditioning include long hours of operation as well as regular competitions for power lifting. Recent classes have also included training to run a half marathon as well as strength and agility work for gymnastics. A focus on building strength and agility for youth athletes is also present in the gym’s programming.
