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.
The fitness staff and certified personal trainers at O2 Fitness propel bodies through fitness classes and personal training in an upscale facility with more than 100 pieces of cardio equipment, brigades of strength machines, free weights, and an outdoor turf training area. Engaging instructors lead more than 50 group classes per week, such as BodyPump, yoga, and cycling, motivating students to shed calories and tone muscle. During two sessions, certified personal trainers impart exercisers efficient techniques that help to maximize workouts—such as staying awake—and tips on managing a proper diet. Slap soles against treadmills while watching the ceiling-mounted LED flat-panel televisions, and pamper muscles in the showers or saunas. For the duration of the 10 days, onsite childcare providers will watch over little ones, keeping them safe from flying free weights, clanging kettlebells, and yoga mats that swear loudly when stepped on.
Within neon-green and royal-blue walls, Polka Dot Palette's instructors awaken creativity in adults of all experience levels during step-by-step painting classes. Of-age students can bring along their preferred beer or wine to two-hour classes, sipping or gargling show tunes as the teacher guides them toward completed paintings. Students emblazon 16"x20" canvases during an eclectic range of classes with rotating themes such as Serenity, Koi Fish, or Seduction. The studio provides students with all the necessary paints and equipment, though attendees must lease their own muses.
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.
Elite-level physical fitness isn’t just a goal at Cary CrossFit. It’s a passion that drives coaches and exercisers alike during Olympic-inspired workouts. Goal-oriented and intense, like a staring match between two dark-roasted coffee beans, each CrossFit session squeezes a hearty dose of cardio and strength work into 55 minutes. Teams of fitness-seekers band together during group training, cheering one another toward personal bests during exercises such as squat variations, handstand pushups, and kettlebell swings. In a 7,500-square-foot training area, medicine balls and lifting platforms encourage muscles to ripple, and a 45-meter track inspires calories to melt during sprints and plyometric drills. In addition to absorbing training tips from a staff of certified personal trainers and conditioning specialists, clients seeking sports-performance gains can build power, speed, and agility using equipment from Legend Fitness, Ivanko, Concept 2, and Pendlay. Those looking to lose weight can sign up for a BodyMetrix test, which analyzes the body’s levels of muscle and fat using ultrasound as high-tech as a segway-drawn carriage.
