Run by a family of fitness gurus, Spa Fit makes charismatic fitness coaching during group exercise classes one of its highest priorities, second only to making sure gym-goers properly match sweatbands to leotards. Improve posture and reduce muscle tension with a series of floor and standing poses during yoga classes, or send puny core muscles through a brawn-building assembly line during Pilates sessions. With the 60-minute Cycle-Lates classes, students spend half the time burning calories on a cardio bike and the other half building lean, toned muscles doing mat Pilates exercises. Meanwhile, Zumba classes provide high-energy sweat sessions, during which fitnessmongers of all ages and experience levels tone their bodies by performing kinetic Latin-dance-inspired moves to the rhythms of motivating music or the tense sounds of a Stephen King audio book.

Perched on hilltops that overlook the scenic Roanoke Valley, Hanging Rock Golf Club's 18-hole course surfs the mountainside for 6,602 yards of challenging course conditions. Rising peaks cast shadows across the course's emerald fairways as undulating terrain places a high premium on club selection, confident swings, and 9-irons impervious to motion sickness. The course's signature hole, the par-4 fifth, showcases the inventive designs of architect Russell Breeden as golfers can pen their own pin-hunting tale by playing to a two-tiered green stationed boldly uphill, a tricky layout that emphasizes accurate approach shots and putters that don't sweat under pressure. To help prepare players for upcoming rounds, resident ace Chip Sullivan conducts private lessons and runs golf academies for birdie seekers of all stripes.

Course at a Glance:

  • Designed by Russell Breeden
  • 18-hole, par-72 course
  • Length of 6,602 yards from farthest tees
  • Course rating of 72.0 from farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 137 from farthest tees
  • Four tee options

Against the serene backdrop of the Appalachian Mountain foothills, the ancient Eastern traditions of aikido and yoga are alive and well. Blue Ridge Aikido & Yoga’s cofounder Irene Malochowky is a registered nurse and certified yoga instructor equipped with exactly the skill set she needs to help students safely discover their bodies’ potential during gentle or challenging yoga sessions. As a certified advanced teacher in cardiac yoga, yoga for osteoporosis, and yoga for multiple sclerosis (MS), she is uniquely positioned to help students who struggle with injuries or chronic health issues. The studio’s cofounder Ron Malachowsky has achieved the rank of sandan in aikido—the equivalent of a third-degree black belt. He infuses his martial-arts practice with mindfulness and body-awareness principles from yoga, which he has practiced for over 20 years. The result is a marital-arts class that not only teaches self-defense techniques but also the mental focus and discipline required to get through to you inner child when he’s busy texting.
