Snap Fitness, bustling with cardio and strength-training gear, throws open the doors to its spartan facilities 24/7. Before exercisers put sneaker to treadmill or lift their first weight, personal trainers meet with them to talk about their fitness goals before suggesting a personalized, 60-day fitness plan based on each client?s strength, cardio condition, and bionic limb manufacturer. The gym keeps members motivated with regular check-in calls and demystifies healthy eating with custom online meal plans designed by nutritionists. Certified personal trainers work individually with clients routinely, whereas solo treadmill joggers or stationary-bike cyclists keep company with cardio TV theaters during their long treks to nowhere.
The themes of the seven fields sprawled across Boss Paintball’s 35 acres of woods are nothing if not eclectic. Teams may imagine that they are a posse of sheriff’s deputies fighting bandits in the saloon and bank of Dodge City, or a group of unfortunate soldiers caught in a battle in a spooky haunted house. They may even find themselves set head-to-head inside the Ark, a 40-foot boat that holds a maze, a flagpole mast, and two of every action hero. An astroturfed speedball field caters to fast-paced matches and forces players to duck behind inflatable cover on an open course.
Buck Baker Racing School allows speed-hungry race fans to strap into an authentic Sprint Cup stock car and take it out for a leisurely spin around the Atlanta Motor Speedway. The school's masters of acceleration will instruct motorpupils during a roughly one-hour pre-drive class. Afterward, take shotgun while wearing the provided helmet and fire suit along with tennis shoes inside a bona fide, previously driven Sprint Cup Ford, Chevy, or Dodge. You’ll ride along as your instructor powers around the speedway, during which they'll dish out informative tips on driving and snappy catch phrases such as, "Zounds! I own 300 shares of Apple stock!" Once rookie racers are ready, they'll switch seats with instructors and kindle rubber with 10 full laps around the speedway's 24-degree banked turns, imagining that 53,000 spectators are cheering them on as they take a respectable 17th place out of 12,000 cars.
Concord Speedway hosts roaring engines and screaming fans on 70 acres of tracks and racing activities. The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series gives horseless carriages of all shapes and sizes the opportunity for high-speed cruising, with five races per night on the Speedway's half-mile track. Let cheeks flap in pulse-pounding sympathy during fast-and-furious fours, followed by a stock race as pure as the driven snow, except with tire marks. Voracious vintage sportsman roadsters eat up the track with Kimmel cars hot on their tails. The concluding late-model stock-car race parades the most cutting-edge innovations in speed, handling, and parade-float sling-shotting. Saturday, April 16 is SpringFest, featuring longer races and cash prizes for winners.
The championship course at Red Bridge Golf & Country Club undulates softly over 6,735 yards of manicured Bermuda grass fairways and MiniVerde greens designed by David Postlethwait, a protégé of renowned course architect Pete Dye. Solo golfers or twosomes can navigate carts across the links' rolling fairways and mine for gold in water holes carved by natural streams. Buckets of practice balls warm players up before rounds, or allow them to correct errors after 18 holes. Nestled on 500 acres in the Uwharrie Mountains, the scenic course doles out dizzying views of the surrounding landscapes and Red Bridge's fruitful vineyard.
