Living in Nashville has many perks, but we think one of the best is the top-notch instructors who call this city home. From spirited spinners to uplifting yogis and beyond, ClassPassers in Nashville have access to amazing workouts taught by knowledgeable and inspiring instructors — but which deserve the top honors? We asked and you answered — these are Nashville’s Best Instructors of 2017!
“Lindsey is a phenomenal instructor — she has taught me the value of how taking it ‘easy’ can actually be so much more rewarding in the long term (not saying her classes are easy – I consistently feel sore after taking any of her classes). As someone who can be such an ‘all or nothing’ person, I truly admire her perspective and it inspires me to want to adopt that mindset more in my life. I was recently in a car accident and the injuries from that have prevented me from doing the high impact exercises I usually do — Lindsey has no idea how much her classes have helped me get out of the funk I’ve been in since I have been getting out of shape — both physically and mentally. I am so thankful for her and hope to continue taking her classes for a long time.” –Neevi
“I’ve only had her a few times, but have loved her classes. She is incredibly encouraging and motivating, as well as attentive. She pays close attention to form and helps me get it right. I’m new to Pilates and her classes have really helped me get it right! She seems to really make a connection with her students and strikes up conversation, making it feel like you’re being led by a knowledgeable friend, rather than an impersonal professional.” –Courtney
“She makes everyone feel comfortable in class regardless of skill level. She’s very welcoming and puts everyone at ease in class so they are free to try new exercises and movements. On top of that, her classes are a great workout and are tailored to the students in class. She always asks for requests and always asks if anyone has any injuries so she can be mindful of them in choosing exercises.” –Kelly
Antonio Compton | Barry’s Bootcamp – Nashville
“No matter the mood you are in when you arrive, Antonio makes you want to give it your all and push yourself. There is never a time I don’t look forward to his classes!” –Gabby
“Antonio is energetic and encouraging and pushes you to do your best. As hard as his classes are, he makes the workouts fun.” –Marissa
“He is the most motivating, is aware of everyone in his class, he’s the best instructor I’ve ever had.” –Abbey
