The Vanderbilt Dayani Center is a fitness facility designed for adults with medical conditions. Our specialists teach you how to exercise safely on your own. You can take fitness classes or become a full member of the Dayani Center if you meet certain medical criteria. We also offer specialized therapy and rehabilitation programs, with referral from your doctor.
Many gyms and community centers in Nashville are resuming operations. The Vanderbilt Dayani Center is a medical fitness facility where those with high levels of medical complexities and illnesses come for services. Therefore, we will not be able to safely reopen membership services at this time.
