Celebrity fitness trainer, author, and former U.S. Marine Erin Oprea has worked with some of the fittest names in music. (Think Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Jana Kramer, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, and more.) In addition to training her chart-topping clientele, Oprea has authored a fitness and nutrition guide, The 4x4 Diet, and brought her signature group workouts on the road with a national CitySTRONG tour.
That’s not all, either—just last month, Oprea led the inaugural ACM Workout for a Cause: Erin Oprea Unleashed Tour alongside special guest Kelsea Ballerini during ACM Party for a Cause festivities in Las Vegas. The high-energy group workout raised $5,000 for ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music.
Here, Oprea brings her mantra, “The world is your gym!,” back home to Music City, sharing her three favorite spots for breaking a sweat outside in Nashville.
Ascend Amphitheater | West Riverfront Park
“Ascend Park is super fun for pull-ups. It’s got beautiful views and sometimes even a breeze along the river.”

Tennessee State Capitol
“The Capitol is great for running the stairs—or even better, doing squats or jumps up the stairs! Gorgeous view.”
600 Charlotte Ave (steps face Rosa L Parks Blvd); tn.gov
“The running trail around Centennial Park is a vibrant place to enjoy fantastic flowers and great people watching in the middle of the city. Added bonus: lots of shade!”
