Meet our Founder
With over 30 years of personal training, fitness, and conditioning experience, founder, Jeff Bergholtz M.A. CPT started Takes 2 Fitness in Nashville’s West End neighborhood over 20 years ago based on a proven principle: when you pair individuals in strength, spirit, and mind with a coach and mentor, they are 90% more likely to reach their fitness goals. Since then, the personal training gym has grown to include 3 locations, 25 trainers, and is the premier choice facility for Nashville’s residents.
Unlike most club owners, you won’t find Jeff locked in his office all day. Jeff maintains the most personal training clients of our coaches. Jeff also serves the role of Head Exercise Physiologist, and serves as the case manager on our clients programs. This involves performing the initial evaluation, writing exercise prescriptions, and making sure everyone’s program is perfectly individualized for their success. Jeff believes in leading from the front and embodies the takes 2 mantra of growing younger, together.
