Together, Triangle Rock Club's state-of-the-art facilities in Morrisville and Raleigh house a combined 22,000 square feet of expertly crafted terrain with upward of 174 routes. During small-size classes, drop-in sessions, and rock-climbing camps, novice and seasoned climbers of all ages and skill levels scale freestanding boulders, dodging manmade obstacles while gripping the wall's slanted surface. Founded by two former Marines, Triangle Rock Club was also awarded the 2013 Pinnacle Business Award.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily participants won't need her dance moves to get the most out of each class. Those prone to first-class jitters, though, can review the basic moves online before attending. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
Laced with elements of yoga, Pilates, and gymnastics, the women-only classes at Aradia Fitness sculpt lean, toned physiques. And though physical fitness is a cornerstone of the studio, it's not the only one. Classes such as Striptease and Lap Dance foster a certain amount of unrestrained confidence that, as Aradia puts it, “teach[es] women to unapologetically love their body and themselves.” At 17 locations across the country, Aradia's staff of certified instructors, including world-record holder Amanda, lead women of all shapes, sizes, and experiences through sessions ranging from pole-dancing classes that teach aerial lifts and holds to Sexy Fit classes that forgo the pole for yoga fusion, boot camp, and lap dancing. No matter the class, the environment at Aradia is always light hearted, nurturing, and more supportive than a stainless-steel hammock.
The pintsize artist considers her canvas, pintsize fingers encircling stocky pastel sticks and paintbrushes' lanky handles as she unleashes a deft slash of color. This isn’t a description of Georgia O’Keefe’s 10th birthday party—it’s just another day at Time For Art Kids' bustling studio. Attached to the home of founder Dina, the studio welcomes children aged 6–11 for eight-week art classes, wherein kids are encouraged to express their thoughts and feelings through creative visual images. Year-round art camps combine arts and crafts with show-and-tell and games. Time For Art Kids also sets up face-painting stations at birthday parties and other celebrations, and welcomes large groups for children's birthday parties and ladies' and parents' nights out.
The West Cary Tutoring Center promises academic improvement, a stimulating environment and innovative techniques to help your child succeed in school. We can also boast that our students have fun while learning and are motivated not only by success and improvement but also our grab-bag program.
Founded by an ACE–certified master fitness trainer, One-2-One Fitness transcends the impersonal large-gym experience with intimidation-free, small-group boot-camp sessions. A Monday–Saturday schedule of classes takes place indoors and out, with attendance limited to 20 participants to ensure personal attention and to decrease the likelihood of a flash-mob dance routine erupting during class. Rotating routines prevent boredom with cardio spurts of jogging and plyometrics complemented by strength-building pushups and squats. An emphasis on dynamic partner exercises encourages patrons to pair up with buddies or significant others in shedding pounds.
