The YMCA of Coastal Georgia promotes healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility through a variety of fitness and wellness classes. Membership includes access to gymnasiums, pools, strength and cardio equipment, and group exercise classes such as Contoured Bodies at the Effingham branch, in which simple deep-muscle movements tone the body to improve posture, balance, flexibility, and the likelihood of causing nearby coworkers to sit up straighter in their chairs. Various locations host traditional yoga and flexibility-technique classes, and Zumba classes fuse energetic music with calorie-burning dance moves for a lively workout experience. Groupon buyers also receive $25 to use toward classes, programs, and benefits not included in the monthly membership, such as a 30-minute massage from a licensed massage therapist ($25 for members), or a fall youth soccer session ($50+ for members) that teaches good sportsmanship, the value of exercise, and the importance of being able to manipulate a large object with one's forehead.
First and foremost, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center's mission is to provide ill or injured sea turtles with medical attention, nursing them back to health before—ideally—releasing them back into the ocean. Fortunately for the public, the center lets other wildlife enthusiasts visit their patients and hold up get-well cards to the viewing window. Inside Jekyll Island's historic power plant building, visitors watch marine biologists care for and feed the remarkable reptiles.
Through hands-on exhibits, the center offers additional insight into the natural lives of sea turtles as well as the threats that these turtles face along the Georgia coast. In addition to educating visitors about wildlife conservation, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center also supports ecological research programs that study ways to help the area's species survive even as their natural landscapes undergo drastic changes.
