Personal trainer Nicole Williams founded Allure Dance & Fitness Studio to bring clients closer to their health goals through fitness classes, personal-training sessions, and intense, empowering pole-dancing lessons. Having dubbed the pole "the new dumbbell," Nicole now draws on more than 10 years of experience training everyone from housewives to celebrities as she brings full-body pole workouts to the masses. Nicole and her coterie of instructors specialize in pole dancing, but also lead personal-training sessions and classes that incorporate kickboxing, plyometric, and cardio techniques. Along with classes, Allure hosts private pole parties to sprinkle some spice into birthdays, bachelorette parties, and routine training for streetlight cleaners.
At Rockbridge Adventures, wholesome doses of exercise lurk secretly beneath layers of amusement as adult kids and actual kids climb, slide, and soar across a collection of indoor attractions. Openly defiant against gravity, bungee trampolines send jumpers flipping through the air 20 feet above the ground. Climbers race up a 24-foot rock wall, and in the padded battlezone, siblings joust for power or, more importantly, the front seat on the ride home. Healthy huffs and puffs continue in the Xbox Theater as well, where a large screen dances with Kinect games that constantly keep minds and feet moving, like a spelling bee held on a bed of hot coals. The facility invites all visitors 6 and older to open-play sessions, and also hosts dodgeball tournaments, team-building events, and birthday parties.
Between the lines of Peachtree City Tennis Center's 24 courts, expert instructors lead aspiring athletes through structured lessons and drills. Commit groundstroke adjustments to muscle memory with a fast-feed drill session, reduce both unforced errors and calories in a cardio-tennis session, or poach your opponent's weak returns and unguarded Gatorades while tending the net during a two-hour round-robin doubles session.
Four red screamers cut through the sky above Falcon Field, synchronizing their movements as plumes of white stream behind them. This is the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team, just one of many airborne performers in night and day shows of the The Great Georgia Air Show. As the audience throws their collective head back, they’ll take in the chill-inducing twists and rolls of multiple performers.
Elsewhere on the grounds, ticket holders to the day show can listen to live music or participate in attractions for both kids and adults. These include a 4-D theater, full motion simulators, warbird and helicopter rides, jet truck, kids zone, wall of flames, and aviation expo. Food-truck dishes and craft beers are also available for customer sustenance. Besides filling onlookers with wonder and engineless birds with jealousy, the non-profit air show helps fund more than 40 area organizations, including academic clubs and community programs.
Presented in part by Dan Clark, also known as Nitro, of American Gladiator fame, the Gladiator Rock'n Run is a unique and challenging event, pairing an obstacle-heavy running course and an attempt at breaking the record for the world’s longest mud pit with post-race entertainment, including beer, music, and food. Those prepared to race must dance through tires, army-crawl through mud, and clamber up rope ladders to avoid barrels thrown by giant apes. The roar of spectators rings throughout the course as bystanders cheer on runners to inspire strong finishes.
