Several additional courses are available [at] discounts to returning clients.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
The best part about our job is when the client gets the moment of what we call "ah-ha"—everything we are teaching them comes together in the student's mind and they are able to show us what they can do. That's where the fun really starts.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
All of our staff are experienced, certified instructors. Many are from several agencies such as [the] National Rifle Association, NRA Law Enforcement Activities Division, Glock, Safariland, and PPCI. The majority of our staff have backgrounds in naval, military, law-enforcement, or competitive shooting. Our experience and abilities come across with each student we work with to provide the safest and most educational opportunity for them to shine in.
Bally enshrines exercise classes, calorie-burning equipment, and a fitness-focused staff within its sanctuaries of health. A 30-day membership includes access to a spread of group exercise classes, including Pilates, Reaction Cycling, and Step Fitness (class offerings vary by location). For self-guided worker-outers, cardio equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, cross-trainers, and stair climbers torch calories while entertaining the brain with video entertainment and integrated music systems that occasionally whisper quotes from Charles Atlas. Bally also boasts an array of strength machines, free weights, and small-apparatus equipment, and grants gym-goers access to on-site locker rooms, showers, and, at some locations, a pool and steam room. Visit each location's webpage for a list of specific amenities and the lineup of classes.

When they're not busy creating masterpieces of their own, the art instructors at Cre8sart share their knowledge and passion with aspiring artists in the community. In their studio, they lead both children and adults through classes in drawing, painting, and composition. During these sessions, they foster an environment where all students can relax and use creativity as a vehicle to express their true selves. In addition to art lessons, the team also oversees a plaster studio, where individuals and birthday parties alike can adorn plaster statues and miniatures with coats of quick-drying, water-soluble paints.
