The STUDIO

-Owner and Founder, Darren Elder was told in high school that he would have his own gym one day, and well, this made sense. Honestly, he was always the first guy on the team to walk into the weight room, and would as well be the very last to leave. He had an absolute passion for health and fitness. He took it upon himself to learn not only about exercise, but everything in fitness that came along with it. Having a strong athletic background, he wanted to be the best he could be on the field, and he found a way to do that. It started out with teammates, friends, and family asking for workout tips, and nutritional guidance. Now it’s grown into something great, and he has dedicated himself to helping as many clients with their fitness journeys as he can.

He possesses a talent for connecting with people and allowing them to find themselves, and what they are capable of, both physically and mentally. Darren's vision of the fitness world is revolutionary. Driven by his quality experience and unique style.

Now, he didn’t actually end up opening just an average gym. He realized that he wouldn’t want a place that sold memberships, consisting of people simply coming and going; a place to never truly learn what it is to be fit. A sleek space where one could experience the true healthy lifestyle. Just as well, he didn’t want a space that only worked with stellar athletes, or solely specialized in weight loss, or marathon runners. Darren wanted to create something new. A fresh studio that could help each of these clients, regardless of what history they were coming from, or whatever amazing future goal they were headed towards.

It's fitness. Evolved.

 

    This has all led up to the SET.

                      A revolutionary, personal training studio. That's been designed just for you, no matter who you may be.

How about some fun facts about you?

I like to watch, and play most sports. I have played in a weekly volleyball league for the past 11 years, and also played for my college for four years.

I have worked in college athletics for 14 years.

I love to be a tourist in my own city and try new things around Nashville. I also love to travel, and my favorite place is Maui, Hawaii.

I enjoy cooking and getting creative in the kitchen. I do like the challenge of transforming non-healthy recipes into healthy options.

I love to stand-up paddle board.

I never travel outside of Nashville without my rain jacket.

How about some fun facts about you?

I am a big sports fanatic. Huge New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Steelers fan.

I played baseball in high school and until my junior year of college. During my senior year of high school, we won a state championship and I was named 2009 Tennessee High School Baseball Player of the Year.

I love to cook, probably as much or maybe even more than Katie does. Not that it's a competition.

I enjoy walking / running new trails with my dog, Miller.

I like to get out and volunteer on the weekends with my church. Currently we are working on a program called "Serve the City" and helping build houses right here in Nashville.

I really love hard rock music, although I may not exactly look like it.
