At CrossFit Augusta, located inside Quantum Academy, seeing people give it their all is the standard, not the exception. It?s not uncommon to see someone hop onto a pull-up bar, rapidly perform a number of kipping pull-ups, drop down, walk over to a barbell, rapidly perform a number of front squats, return to the pull-up bar, and repeat the cycle. The exhausting series of exercises is typical among CrossFit?s workout of the day, because it uses functional movements, such as squatting, pushing, pulling, and waving hello to strangers. Yet a friendly, inviting atmosphere is maintained throughout, which helps those getting back into fitness find their groove. A seasoned staff of CrossFit coaches is always on hand to assist members in maintaining proper form and staying motivated.
An original Rees Jones design, Jones Creek Golf Club navigates the rolling hills of Augusta to showcase a landscape of dogwoods, azaleas, and frequent elevation changes. Water intersects numerous holes, and pristine white-sand bunkers surround sloped, hard-to-read greens that flummox players more that the Mona Lisa's coy smile. Golfers can warm-up for rounds at the facility's practice greens, driving range, or during lessons at the state-of-the-art golf center. The stately clubhouse features casual dining and elegant facilities to host events. Nearby, members can wind down with a match on the tennis courts or a dip in the facility's large swimming pool.
Fairest of All: Princess Parties
adds a touch of magic to any child's party. A favorite character?such as Cinderella, Snow White, or Rapunzel?makes an appearance to read a story and sing songs with guests, and can teach dance steps or games before departing back to their "happily ever after." And the enchantment isn't limited to special events: the princesses can also deliver flowers or heartfelt messages as part of the company's singing telegram service.
Superior Academy trains bodies to react to stressful situations with power and stamina. Its mixed martial arts training includes a variety of techniques, including Bruce Lee's jeet kune do and close-quarter defense, to help kids, teens, adults, women, and military personnel fend off would-be attackers. For those who prefer to move in a less combative art, the school also conducts salsa, ballroom, and swing lessons for solo dancers or partners.
