Dustin created Core Fitness Nashville because he was sick and tired of people working out at gyms for years and never getting results. "People would tell me they have been working with a trainer for over a year, and they didn't look one bit different."A personable approach to science based fitness and nutrition is the secret to his success. Each program is specifically designed to put you in the best environment possible to get results. Weight loss should never be a goal. Train to get stronger, to get faster, to improve a skill, and to become the best version of yourself. Eating real, nutrient dense foods will transform you from the inside out. Dustin will meet you at your fitness level, wherever that may be, and help motivate you past any obstacles that stand in the way. Every athlete needs a coach. Everybody needs a motivator to push them harder than they would push themselves so that they can be successful.

Meet Lauren

After my first yoga class at a studio, I was humbled, both energized and centered, and hooked. Yoga was NOT just glorified stretching! 

Yoga challenges the body and mind, it washes away tension and stress, but it also doesn't have to be so serious. I love playing in my own practice as well as in my classes. This playfulness and creativity with the body is something I find freeing, it reminds me of being a kid. In yoga, we relearn how to use our bodies, move freely, maybe even fall sometimes. Yoga provides a place to smile at ourselves, to be thankful for our bodies and minds, and spend time on self care and self love.

Come play on the mat with me!
