Granite Falls Swim and Athletic Club’s members gain unbridled access to a 60,000-square-foot paradise of fitness and recreation, where indoor aerobics classes, sporting activities, and poolside recreation await individuals and families of all persuasions. When not absorbed by reality shows and C-SPAN soap operas on the exercise machines’ cardio cinemas, members can take lethargy to task in a range of aerobics, yoga, and Pilates classes hosted in the gym’s lower-level studios. Just next door, a competition-size pool opens its warm, watery arms with eight lanes and 25 yards dedicated to backstroke battles, recreational splish-splashes, and swim-aerobics classes (included with membership). An outdoor waterpark complex ups the aquatic ante with its large pool, lazy river, and a “Big Dipper” slide that momentarily shoots children into outer space for play dates with extraterrestrials. A separate KidZone area ($2.50/hour a child) staffed by highly trained professionals keeps tykes entertained with safe and stimulating activities while their parents hit the gym. The club also hosts special programs and summer camps for children, such as a Gym and Swim class for kids ages 4–7 and cootie self-defense courses for kids of all ages.
Open 18 hours a day, 365 days a year, Carolina Health Club's friendly staff and modern facilities motivate members to achieve their fitness-related goals in a supportive, stress-free environment. With ample parking and dozens of treadmills, spin stations, elliptical machines, and a spacious open floor for exercise equipment and free weights, the gym provides a comfortable atmosphere without the crowding and unmotivational headbutts common at larger commercial gyms. Your one-month membership will include access to classes such as cardio kickboxing and Pilates, both of which welcome participants of all fitness and activity levels (some classes, such as jazzercise and stretch training, may require an additional fee).
With two basketball courts, a volleyball court, a turf field, and an indoor soccer field, MVP Sports Factory boasts enough space to accommodate its wide array of kids' sports programs. Lessons teaching soccer, basketball, tennis, and blastball—an introductory form of baseball—inspire confidence and teamwork at the tricked-out facility.
