Tennessee Fitness Spa is located in Waynesboro, just 95 miles southwest of Nashville, Tennessee at beautiful Natural Bridge. This historic site is the only known double span natural bridge formation in the world. It is a purely natural formation that was formed over millions of years by nature. Indians used the site over several different periods of history. Tribes including the Yucchi Indians from Mexico, the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Muskogean, Creeks and Cherokees walked the trails around the Natural Bridge long before the white man came to this country. The last Indians here were the Cherokees but they were ordered out by Andrew Jackson in the 1800's. They embarked on the 'Trail of Tears.' The site is bordered by Forty-Eight Creek, which is crystal clear cool water. Many species of fish can be seen from the banks.
Another popular creation of nature on the grounds is the 'Ice Cave.' The temperature in the cave is a cool 58 degrees year round. Entertainment is provided on special occasions by local musicians and storytellers.
