Welcome to Synergy

Hello and welcome to Synergy, where for the last decade we have been passionately pursuing our mission--to help our clients chart their personal paths to wellness. Synergy is the first studio of its kind in the Cookeville area. Our focus is on mind/ body disciplines, or exercise techniques that clear our busy minds by asking us to focus on our breath, pay attention, and carefully control our bodies. This mindfulness, focus, and precision inevitably bring about marked results in our physique. They also bring myriad holistic results, including improvements in concentration, focus, agility, balance, posture, stamina, and mental/physical endurance... just to name a few. 

Joseph Pilates once said, "physical fitness is the first requisite to happiness." Although it may be debatable whether physical fitness itself is in fact the FIRST requisite to happiness, it is undeniable that reaching our optimum level of health, wellness and vitality adds to our enjoyment of everyday life, and it provides a practical ability to function productively within our bodies. 

Whether you are a seasoned athlete, someone who is recovering from injury or illness, or someone beginning a fitness regimen for the very first time, Synergy will work, together with you, to develop the right approach for you personally. Mind/body disciplines vary, as do personalities, and at Synergy we pledge to bring any and all of our resources to bear on finding the ideal program for you - one that not only suits your personality, but one that takes your individual needs into consideration, and fits appropriately into your lifestyle; one that you look forward to, rather than dread. One that is powerful enough to show physical results, but calm enough to bring rest and stillness when needed.

We offer a diverse schedule of regular weekly programming, as well as special events, workshops and guest teachers. Our in-house staff features the most talented, well-trained and experienced professionals in our region. We know you'll find something you love at Synergy!

Happy Birthday to Us!

We’re celebrating the whole month through, with special classes, guest teachers and workshops in honor of our studio’s TEN YEAR anniversary!

The Bridge

This innovative workshop is the first in a series designed to help women who have felt that they are not able to exercise—especially those who suffer from underlying hip, pelvic or lower back problems. Many ladies with these issues have previously had physical therapy or other treatments, but have reached a plateau short of their desired activity level. Are you unable to progress beyond your prescribed home exercises, or trapped in a cycle of re-injury when you attempt activities you used to enjoy? This workshop will help you to “bridge” beyond your current activity level, and prepare for regular exercise. Combining principles of pelvic physical therapy with the fundamentals of Pilates and yoga, you will be able to enhance and build upon your current movement capabilities. You’ll learn to exercise in a safe and effective way, honor your body, and strategically prepare for regular exercise classes. Leave with “homework” and tips for building your own personal practice. Discover ways to protect your body and prevent further injury, through body awareness. Build core strength, increase your flexibility, and enhance your mood. Bridge the gap from fear of exercise to the joy of mind/body movement! Developed and taught by Marsha Bowman, PT/DPT with Petti Groth, ERYT-500/PMA-CPT.2 hours. $35 or use 3 off your Synergy class package to attend. Register here.
