Nashville Gyms

Hey everyone, I am flying into Nashville, TN (I live in Denver) over labor day for a wedding. I am staying at the Loews Vanderbilt Plaza Hotel (I’m assuming near Vandy U), and I want to find a Golds, World, Flex, or a nice local gym, preferably with a heavy bag. If at all possible, I’d like it to be relatively close to the hotel (no more than a 10 minute drive) because I’ll already have to deal with “are you eating again?” and “but their’s a lovely fitness center in the hotel” from all of the other guests of the wedding. Thanks!

I found a Golds in Brentwood, but I did a mapquest, and it’s a good 20-30 minutes away from my hotel. Looks really nice, but I just don’t think it will be feasible to try and have someone drop me off and pick me up.

I’m going to have to sacrifice quality, so I guess I’m just looking for a local athletic club or something no more than 10 minutes from the hotel. Hell, if someone can get me into Vandy’s rec center, that’d be ideal!
