The passionate and PADI-certified professional staff at Peachtree Dive Center has risen to such high levels of aquatic expertise that most of them eschew equipment altogether, favoring the gills bestowed upon them by friendly merpeople. During in-depth adult snorkeling classes, instructors school students on how to find appropriate skin diving sites, spot common hazards, and identify aquatic plants and wildlife. After discussing proper equipment care and maintenance, be-finned snorkelers plunge into Peachtree's indoor pool for a practical lesson. The kids’ class, in addition to a kid-friendly classroom and pool session, includes an interactive, informative coloring book. Host a Peachtree pool party and invite up to 20 swimmers to splash around in Peachtree’s 90-degree indoor pool under the watchful supervision of a lifeguard. Peachtree Dive Center does not provide refreshments, but encourages party hosts to bring their own snacks to fuel birthday parties, stockholder meetings, and manatee play dates.

Piedmont Park preserves the luxury of yesteryear. Designed in the late 1800s, the park's facilities have withstood the test of time with recreational halls that reflect the simplicity of its lush landscapes, and wetlands. Over the past 20 years, the Piedmont Park Conservancy has restored the park to its historic natural beauty, transforming a dilapidated space into a frequented green space. A slew of activities engage the community with outdoor programs ranging from environmental day camps to team sports such as soccer and softball. Park tours explore the history of the neighborhood and the weekly Green Market whets appetites with fresh produce from local farmers and thieving rabbits.

Q&A with Saidah Kinerman, Instructor/Owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

I offer a variety of different exercises to meet all fitness levels. I believe the most important thing is self efficacy. It is my goal that everyone participating in class will be able to complete at least one exercise well. There is also a lot of peer support from other class members and encouragement from the instructor.

Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?

Definitely, most of the music that is played in class is pop and today's top hits. Mainly upbeat current tunes.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

This class combines cycling with core routines and high intensity water workouts. I relocated from California where fitness fusion is common. This class is offered in the world-renowned Piedmont Park in Midtown Atlanta, is convenient, and offers a total body workout.
