    I've suffered from a lower back injury since my mid-twenties.   I've had regular chiropractic care for for decades.   After nearly 30 years in the corporate sitting position, I have accumulated chronic painful conditions in my lower back and right shoulder.   After four visits to two orthopedic doctors, a cortizone shot, chiropractic treatments 3x per week, a month of completely useless physical therapy, bottles of Advil and over $3,000 wasted, I started with Dan DeFigio at Basics and Beyond.   I have had 4 sessions with Dan.   I am nearly pain free in my back and my shoulder is almost back to normal.  Dan's knowledge of muscular physiology is immense, detailed and practical, but Dan's application is artful and intuitive.   Dan treats the underlying root causes of problems - not just symptoms.  I've been a gym regular for almost 40 years and have seen hundreds of personal trainers in action.   Dan is so far beyond any trainer I've ever seen, that the title of "trainer" is inadequate.  I think Dan should have the title  "Exercise Shaman" on his business card.

    I work with Dan. Absolutely awesome. I have had good trainers in the past. He is far and away the best, much more than a trainer... think Coach, Rehab. Specialist , stretching guru, nutrition knowledgeable and more in one package. Maybe you could call him the trainers trainer. I have functional/ orthopedic issues and a typical trainer causes me more injury or to be improperly strengthened. Not only am I injury free,I am gaining function, strength, control over food choices and a balance to my life that I have not experienced or understood before. You will not be disappointed with the quality you find at Basics and Beyond!

    I just started working with Jon and he is great! Im only able to meet with him once a week right now but he make sure I have workouts to do thru out the week until we meet again. Dan is great as well . Dan and Jon both are on top of your nutrition goals. Jon will txt me and ask me "what you eat today." Dan also asked a lot of questions about my fitness level and goals. With that info he was able to match me up with the right personal trainer.

    I spent several months doing traditional PT at Vanderbilt for long standing, significant back (and related) issues and pain. Within 3 weeks of starting to work with Dan I had accomplished more in regards to mobility, pain reduction, problem identification/conceptualization, hope for, and actual, improvement than I had during my entire time in PT. I'm very curious about how things work and Dan explains each thing we do in session together, and helps me to understand how and why it works. His knowledge base is outstanding. Dan also goes above and beyond the standard "training" session every time we meet, and has a genuine, personal interest and investment in his clients getting better/reaching their goals. I am so grateful for our work together and how much improvement I have already gained. If you are someone who is looking for above and beyond personal training, Dan is absolutely the way to go!

    I have been working with Dan DeFigio and his team of trainers since I moved my Sports Injury practice to Nashville, TN in 2012.  Dan's knowledge of human movement, injury recovery, and injury prevention is top-notch.  It is a pleasure to be able to co-treat and coordinate care without having to worry about the follow-up rehab.  Dan is on top of it and right on point with what is needed after care has been delivered.  Keep up the fantastic job Dan!  Amazing working with you!!!

    Dan was very prompt in responding to me when I was initially on the search for a trainer. He recommended Adam, who is amazing! He is knowledgeable, motivating, and he truly cares about you and your goals. Everyone here is extremely friendly, and not an intimidating environment, which was a concern of mine. Amazing place! Give it a try!

    Alison is a wonderful trainer. She is knowledgeable, patient, motivating and fun. She knows just how to push me without me realizing that I'm out of my comfort zone. I highly recommend her!

    Thanks to Dan for getting me started and Ben who has patiently been working with me for the past six months, I was able to complete the Women's Half Marathon less than 9 months after a full knee replacement. These guys work with those of us in our late 50's and listen to help you reach your goals. This is the best money I spend on myself!

    Dan Defigio is the best at what he does. I had lower back and posture problems, which prevented me from doing regular exercise. I sought out Dan as my last resort, and with his expertise and patience, he has changed my life. Dan truly cares about getting you healthy and has a contagious passion for fitness and nutrition, that will truly transform you to a healthier, better you!
