Connected to C3 Church, C3 Fitness is a community-oriented exercise facility with fitness programs for the whole family. Its signature class, C3 Xtreme, encourages competition—but only between athletes and their previous personal bests. The rigorous class centers on high-intensity interval training and power lifting, with other conditioning and strength work mixed in. Complementary workout classes range from yoga and Pilates sessions, which build lean muscle and flexibility, to FitKid programs, designed for ages 4–12. Patrons can also drop their kids at onsite childcare during their workouts to prevent them from begging for a pet treadmill. Other amenities, such as an online exercise and nutrition tracker, further enhance fitness regimens.
Fitness 19's founders launched their first family-oriented gyms in 2003, hoping to splash the exercising experience with local flavor and familiarity. At each of seven Georgia locations, Life Fitness cardio machines—including treadmills and ellipticals—unite with strength-training machines and free weights to help members to build leaner physiques as certified personal trainers patrol the deep-red-carpeted workout area. The expert staff can also guide clients through yoga-, martial-arts, and weight-loss-centric personal-training sessions. Every location also hosts a kids' room, where youngsters can craft macaroni kettlebells under the supervision of a full-time staff member.
Founded by celebrity wrestler and quadruple amputee Kyle Maynard, No Excuses CrossFit inspires clients to achieve their loftiest goals both in the gym and beyond. A coaching squad that includes elite athletes and firefighters leads each workout, helping students develop physical prowess, mental toughness, and realistic siren imitations. Designed for beginners, 50-minute CrossFit Basics classes challenge the entire body with cardio intervals and strength-training exercises designed to build speed and stamina. Calories melt and muscles ripple as students practice Olympic lifts and gymnastics-inspired pull-ups in a supportive, team-like environment, which includes personalized attention from the coaches, who emphasize proper form to prevent injuries. To foster a complete transformation, No Excuses' trainers also share fitness videos, nutrition pointers, and tips on building a human-size cocoon. Consult the class schedule for dates and times.
Though indoor climbing tends to be clear of mountain-goat traffic, climbers at Adrenaline Climbing may come across a different kind of animal: the adrenaline junkie. Owners Trey and Brad provide a haven for these gentle thrill-seekers at their enormous facility, which boasts 12,500 square feet of climbing space. Along with their staff, the duo takes a hands-on approach to climbing instruction, helping them with the equipment and spotting they need to traverse Adrenaline’s walls.
To keep things fresh, the challenging routes and boulder problems—meticulously prepared by a route-management plan and rated according to the Yosemite Decimal System—are periodically recast. Adrenaline Climbing welcomes all climbers, dispensing lessons regardless of skill level, discipline, age, or spirit animal preference. The facility also hosts youth training, climbing classes, and even outdoor guiding trips.
