The club leadership of TITLE Boxing Club[East Nashville/Nashville Church Street]focuses on giving the best workout in the city, day in and day out. We love our members and the community they’ve helped us build. We are here to make TITLE better each and every day for them.

Tyler Thompson (owner of both TITLE Boxing Club Church St and TITLE Boxing Club East Nashville) says, “We opened TITLE to give Nashville a place where people are welcome and pushed to the limit, all while learning the sport we love.”
From the moment class begins, you will use the fundamentals of a true boxer’s workout to strengthen and tone your arms, legs, back, and core. Each workout begins with the warmups – an HIIT workout that combines trainer-led boxing with cardio drills and stretches. This gets your heart pumping and you mind ready for the next phase of your boxing class – the rounds. During the rounds, your trainer will lead you through a series of jab, hook, and cross combinations where you’ll lay it all on the heavy bag for three minutes; then, you’ll rest for a minute before jumping into the next round. Once you’ve finished the rounds, our TITLE trainers will lead you through an ab workout where you’ll use weighted medicine balls to define your core. Through every step of our boxing workout, you can feel empowered as you move closer to reaching your goals.
A new level of empowerment is here! As a boxing gym in Nashville, TN, TITLE Boxing Club [East Nashville/Nashville Church Street] offers full-body boxing workouts designed to engage you spirit and your body.

The following story is from TITLE Boxing Club - East Nashville member, Kelsey Eastman: "Boxing has always been something that I was interested in trying. When my friend and I heard that they opened a TITLE Boxing in East Nashville, we jumped at the chance to check it out. I remember first walking into the gym and being nervous as can be because I had no idea what I was doing! My first impression when I walked in was encouraging—the staff was super friendly, warm and welcoming. I am pretty sure that it was a random class that Tyler Thompson was leading. I enjoyed his energy and his passion for teaching. During the class I remember thinking I may possibly die, pass out, or not be able to move again. At that point, I had not done a single workout in at least a year. After the class, Tyler Thompson came...
I’ve heard the classes are intense; do I need to be in great shape to do the workouts?
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t worked out in a while or have never boxed before, you can finish the workout feeling great! You’ll see that everyone goes at their own pace, but believe us that once you’re here, you’ll be inspired to give it your very best!
I don’t want to get hit; is this a contact workout?
No—not ever! Each person in class has their own heavy bag to workout on, plus their own space to move around the bag. Trust us, you won’t even realize anyone else is in the class because you’ll be so focused on the workout! And, rest easy, we never allow sparring or fighting at TITLE Boxing Club.
What makes TITLE different than other fitness studios?
Boxing is a great workout, perhaps one of the most challenging of all sports, and we want to bring you the intensity of the training, minus the impact. We’ll teach you how to roll with the punches by pushing you further than you thought possible.
I’m new to boxing; will someone show me the basics?
You bet! All of our classes are taught by instructors who will show you the ropes from the beginning. We’ll help you wrap your hands and walk you through the basic fundamentals. Everyone in class is at a different level, so take a deep breath and go at your own pace!
