Nashletics, home of CrossFit Melrose and Afterburn, will move facilities to increase facility size. Nashletics houses the highest certified CrossFit trainer in the state of Tennessee and other health professionals including a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

Nashletics, formerly CrossFit Melrose, will be expanding its workout space due its rapid growth over the fall season. Beginning December of 2017, the gym will be moving within the same complex to 2026 Lindell Avenue, located near the I-65 and Wedgewood intersection.

The move will allow for new programs to come to life, adding to Nashletics diverse fitness community. “From strength to weight loss to movement rehabilitation, we want to help people reach their health goals – and that can require a unique workout program,” says Mark Molinyawe, owner of Nashletics.

The new space will house nearly 6000 square feet with 4200 square feet of gym floor space, up from 3500 total square feet at 2022 Lindell Avenue. Molinyawe explains, "At the rate we’re growing, it was a no-brainer to expand and give more opportunity to those looking to make changes to their health and fitness."

Nashletics continues to flourish as a CrossFit affiliate. CrossFit, which is targeted at general fitness, including strength, athleticism and conditioning has been a long standing success in the Middle Tennessee area over the last decade. Members enjoy feeling extremely accomplished in a group atmosphere and are eager to get better.

The gym also includes Afterburn, a program launched in September 2017 as a rousing success. Led by Kelsey Reiman, the program focuses on HIIT (high intensity interval training), cardio, and conditioning to improve overall health and affect body composition. Named after the Afterburn Effect, members love this high-calorie burning program and leave class feeling energized and equipped for everyday life.

New to Nashletics is also a 12-week total body transformation in a semi-private setting. “The best part about this program is the nutrition and accountability that really changes not just how you look, but also how you feel about yourself,” says Molinyawe.  Clients can expect a small dedicated training group with a designated coach, custom nutrition and workouts designed to optimize hormones, resulting in better sleep and more energy.

Molinyawe explains that the focus of Nashletics is to provide health and fitness coaching without prescribing one broad program to all members.
