The first person at Chattahoochee Gold Swim to exemplify the attributes of determination and tenacity so highly valued by coach Pat Murphy, the club's founder, was not a swimmer, nor did the character-defining event occur near the water. The person in question was a hard-working landscaper, who—though he had only one arm—approached his work with an unbridled passion that coach Murphy couldn’t help but admire. Keeping the landscaper ever in his mind, Pat—with the help of his team of coaches and instructors—strives to impart a similar sense of commitment, integrity, and inspiration in swimmers of all ages via a host of lessons, programs, and swim meets.
Throughout the year, the crew of coaches can be found in the pool and on the deck helming fun and educational lessons for students of all levels. The introductory parent-tot program teaches first-time swimmers the basics of water safety, and the swim league grants kids the opportunity to meet for weekly practices in a noncompetitive environment, free of the middive thumb wars often associated with competitive programs. Along with lessons and classes, Chattahoochee Gold Swim offers fitness programs, such as water aerobics, to help participants streamline their physiques.
Swimming, football, basketball, tennis, and golf are all very different sports, requiring very different skills. But at Mclimited4Sports, coach and accomplished athlete Johnny Mcclenton—who has spent time in NBA organizations and as a member of the Junior Davis Cup team—schools young athletes in each of the above sports by boiling things down to the basics and focusing on fundamentals. During basketball lessons, for instance, Coach Johnny has students practice ball handling and defense; during golf lessons, they work on posture and balance. Coach Johnny strives to keeps his curriculum flexible, and puts an emphasis on maintaining a personal connection with his students to better understand their goals and aspirations.
Although each of the seven Just Fitness 4U locations has its own distinctions—such as the Lawrenceville location's 24/7 hours or the Marietta location's 25,000 sq. ft. facility and marble lobby—they more or less share the same tools for getting in shape. For starters, each is furnished with state-of-the-art Life Fitness and Hammer Strength equipment, which can be used or lifted to increase strength. Moreover, the facilities have a team of certified personal trainers and group fitness instructors who lead one-on-one workouts and fitness classes such Pilates, Zumba, yoga, and spinning, respectively.
The water-dipping emporium treats aqua enthusiasts to a heated, Olympic-size pool, a tidy facility, and myriad opportunities to improve water-wrangling abilities. Take to the water for a full-body workout, sidestroking, freestyling, and butterflying your way up and down the lanes. Whether swimmers have global-sports-competition dreams or just want to learn how to outswim pet frogs, the open lap swims will help increase stamina, burn calories, and prove to gravity that you can wrestle with it gracefully. SwimAtlanta Sugarloaf offers lap-swim hours seven days per week, allowing Groupon customers to take to the water on an almost-daily basis.
No matter the season, the experienced instructors at Skydive Monroe help students discover Atlanta’s sky-high beauty while gliding through the air at 14,000 feet. They teach students of all experience levels the ins and outs of these giant leaps, working with beginners through tandem jumps, instructor-assisted deployments, and accelerated freefall classes. They also oversee jumps for more experienced divers, and welcome non-jumpers to ride along in the plane for an additional fee. Staff members document each trip on video, allowing jumpers to relive the thrill of the jump without painting tiny cityscapes on their trampolines.
