We’ve got BIG news to share! It’s been about 6 months in the making for Energy Fitness!

We have found our next onsite location!

Energy Fitness, an award winning boutique personal training studio was incorporated and started in Memphis, TN in June 2002. Tonya Tittle’s husband Mark Tittle realized that she had the skill set to start a personal training business as she had already been approached twice to manage studios that wanted to open downtown. Mark has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and helped in the early years with business guidance. We have helped over 3000 Memphis area residents with their health and fitness goals and now reaching a wider audience with more with our online zoom training which was added in 2020 and is still a great service.

Two weeks before covid shutdown last February 2020, we told our clients of our plans to relocate the family and business to South Carolina. Mark’s medical sales job had an open territory. This was a thoughtful and hard decision to leave our many clients and dear friends made during our 23 years in Memphis. We just couldn’t pass by an opportunity for our kids to be close to his family in North Carolina and closer to mountain and beach adventures for the whole family.

Fast forward to today, we signed a new lease for onsite location in Travelers Rest, SC. This area is booming and is close to Furman University and the Swamp Rabbit Trail. A paved trail system that goes to downtown Greenville. The new location is a quarter mile from the trail and walkable to our new residence.

A broad strokes timeline…..

  •  August 2002 – Original location 265 South Front Street, Memphis, TN (Shelby County) in a second story loft space with 1100 square feet, only a block from the world famous Beale Street. The view from the top of the stairs was the Mississippi River and the free street parking below.
  • February 2006 – Relocated to 552 South Main Street, Memphis, TN near the historic Arcade Restaurant where Elvis had a booth and across from the Amtrack station. $110k renovations to custom fit a 2000 square foot space.
  • June 2012 – Celebrated 10 Years!
  • February 2020…2 weeks before Covid shutdown, we told our customers we were relocating to Greenville, South Carolina closer to Mark’s family and his new medical sales job territory.
  • March 2020…Online training began and continues today
  • End of February 2021 moved last of contents from Memphis to Greenville, SC and Travelers Rest, SC (2 different storage units)
  • TODAY – August 14th SIGNED NEW LEASE for 1900 square feet facility with free parking, mountain views and high visibility. New address is 898 N. Hwy 25 Bypass, Travelers Rest, SC. It’s in the city but has a Greenville County address. This will be a first time being on ground level with no stairs for clients to climb. Exciting news as now we are more handicap accessible for those that want or need our services.
  • Permits / Construction – August – November 2021
  • Before End of Year 2021 – Relocation Grand Opening
  • June 2022 – Will Celebrate 20 years serving the South! Stay tuned for celebration details…

Check out a few before pics of the space. It needs a lot of work. New almost everything interior: AC, Insulation, Plumbing (2 showers), 2 bathrooms, 2 massage therapy rooms, electrical, new double glass entry doors, glass garage door (to see the mountains and let more light in) and the list goes on. Thanks to Bank of Travelers Rest and their staff Betsy & Nicole for getting a loan approved to up-fit the new location.

Meet our new landlords, Melissa Tinsley & Todd Bayne.













Energy Fitness would not be possible without the love and support from my husband Mark Tittle and 50% owner over the past 19 years! Thanks Mark for letting me help our clients make positive lifestyle wellness changes. Having a business in Memphis for many years helped us get more involved in our community. We look forward to meeting area residents and business owners in our new town as well.

Stay tuned for updates….

Energy Fitness (downtown Memphis) and an Energy Fitness personal trainer are thrilled to be a part of the wellness team for Adam Cruthirds’, his mom Connie & his sister Skylar. November 2019 seems like the month of Adam and Adam’s Army in their continued fundraising efforts to raise one million dollars for St. Jude. We have been so inspired by Adam’s battle and success beating cancer and we’re not the only ones inspired by his story.

Two magazines in the month of November 2019 out at the same time Memphis Health and Fitness & St. Jude’s Inspire features our trainer Lisa and client Adam. It just makes our heart sing to be making a different in the lives of the Cruthird’s family. Adam was diagnosed Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in July 2014 and now is a cancer survivor.

During Adam’s cancer treatments we would often have clients that late cancelled, came in dragging or complaining that they didn’t feel like working out and as with our usual and unique style/flare of customer service to Energy Fitness (lol) we would say things like “We can’t hear it as our client with cancer makes it happens and so can you, Suck it up as you’re not going through chemotherapy like Adam, Oh come on.. we have a client that endures needles in his body everyday for cancer treatment and he still comes to workouts”!

Working out and eating right from the stress of treatments was hard on Mama bear Connie (Adam’s mom) also and she was so honest about how much it affected her and how she now has recovered herself from the stress of trauma of it all. In the Memphis Health & Fitness article I love these words that the writer, Connie and Lisa share:  “As a family, the Cruthirds’ prioritize overall wellness. For Adam’s mother, Connie, the stress of having a child in treatment led to overeating and extreme fatigue. However, in the last year of Adam’s treatment, she found her way back to health and has lost 100 pounds.” “As he’s grown over the years,

I’ve seen him become  more mindful and aware of his overall health, not just getting his physical strength back,” says Lisa.

Connie is an inspiration herself. Her lifelong battle with eating disorder was out of control during the worst of the Adam’s treatments and currently she has tamed the beast of the mind to help make better choices for her body, mind and spirit. She does life coaching and writing professionally. Connie often shares with us and other clients statements about her path/journey to weight loss and the mental battle with food. We all have struggles and work through them differently. Check out her coaching site here or how to hire her services: Connie Cruthirds…coach, writer, creative.

Skylar (Adam’s sister and Connie’s daughter) is a quiet force behind the scenes helping him to raise money for St. Jude as well as being an amazing and supportive sister and daughter. To see how this family interacts and are supportive of each other through such difficult health circumstances really is touching.

A few photos along the way…

We were so excited to find & provide Adam a custom blend protein shake without a specific type of ingredient present in most all shake powders. It helped him to build muscle and nutritionally support his workouts.

The McKenzie Method is a reliable assessment process intended for all musculoskeletal problems, including pain in the back, neck and extremities (i.e., shoulder, knee, ankle etc.), as well as issues associated with sciatica, sacroiliac joint pain, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasms and intermittent numbness in hands or feet. Developed by world-renowned expert physiotherapist Robin McKenzie in the 1950s, this well-researched, exercise based approach of assessment, diagnosis and treatment uses a comprehensive and clinically reasoned evaluation of patients.

Developed by a New Zealand physical therapist named Robin McKenzie, this method emphasizes self-treatment for pain in the back, neck, and peripheral joints. In 1980, he published his first book, “Treat Your Own Back” as a self-help guide to relieve low back pain caused by spinal misalignments and over-stretched ligaments. The McKenzie Method, also known as MDT (Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment), is a system that includes assessment (evaluation), diagnosis and treatment for the spine and extremities.

These exercises would be great for runners as they tend to have tight hamstrings, hip flexors, lower back, and abs. Performing stretches that bend the body backwards (the opposite way runners tend to bend) can help counteract the effects if done on a daily basis. Try a couple for a few minutes each day and let us know how you feel!
