A rustic gateway to equine knowledge, SoPhar Ranch welcomes riders to its shady spot on Sweetwater Creek with services that range from lessons to boarding. Guests saddle up and explore 20 acres of onsite trails, or make their way through 80 acres of adjacent paths. A dedicated team of trainers conducts lessons in both Western and English riding styles on the ranch’s extensive facilities. Fledgling jockeys learn in a large outdoor arena, five large paddocks, or a lighted, covered arena that allows for nighttime riding while ensuring horses don't become jealous of the Pegasus constellation. Riders can also immerse themselves in equine instruction during camps for beginners as well as those focused on dressage, Western riding, and jumping on the ranch's full course.
At In Tune Fitness Studio, the array of options for getting and staying in shape may be slightly overwhelming. For equal parts low-impact exercise and relaxation, yoga fits the bill. Whereas its group fitness classes, such as cardio dance and strength and toning, rely on a higher level of intensity to quickly tone bodies. And its training programs—the Skinny Jean Challenge, boot camp, and Torch IT interval training, to name a few—take small groups on fitness journeys together.

Teamwork and positive attitudes. Strong work ethics, good morals, and keen focus. They're all components of strong character, and they're all instrumental to the dance and cheer classes at Lisa's Dance Spot. Here, upbeat instructors lead lessons in styles from ballet and funk jazz to tumbling, hip-hop, and cheer. Working with kids as young as 2 years, they instill confidence early in tiny dancers, eliminating the phrase "I can't" from their vocabulary. For students interested in pursuing their passion for dance past simple lessons, they also organize dance groups and cheer squads that perform at community events throughout Metro Atlanta.
