Cary Yoga and Kickboxing challenges both body and mind. During high-intensity kickboxing sessions, groups of students jab, hook, and roundhouse kick their way to a healthier existence. A combination of martial arts, boxing, and other fighting forms, kickboxing classes aim to build strength and increase self-awareness, as well. Meanwhile, the facility divides its yoga offerings into two different programs: power Vinyasa and sweat and detox. The latter program revolves around poses that improve the body’s circulatory and lymphatic systems, helping to expel toxins.
A Franklin Street icon, the recently renovated Varsity Theatre has entertained audiences and cineastes for more than 50 years with screenings of current blockbusters, cult flicks, indie films, and classics. A vintage marquee beckons audiences to file into comfy seats as 35mm and digital projectors project movies onto screens. Along with regularly scheduled showings, The Varsity also holds special events such as film forums, dinner-and-movie specials, or interviews with John Wayne's neckerchief. Groups can rent out the theaters for birthday parties, corporate functions, or special events, with multiple media services and catering options available.
Though a perfect row looks like one smooth motion, it is actually built from four component movements—you start with dropping the oars into the water during the catch, and then move the oars toward the stern during recovery. Such precision of form is vital in team rowing, where a single asynchronous stroke could cost the shell its momentum and, ultimately, a win for its team. Thus, Triangle Rowing Club strives for synchronicity amongst its students, building within them the balance, endurance, and hand webbing needed to propel teams of two, four, or eight to victory. The club often competes in regional regattas, traveling to nearby states to demonstrate their teamwork.

After a day plowing the fields, the young Dan Andrews would jump from the tractor, feel his boots sink into the freshly turned earth, and then grab his rifle for an evening of hunting on his family's farm. Once he graduated college, Andrews found himself wanting to share his passion for the outdoors, forged by experiences such as hunting trophy buck and stalking duck along the farmland's creek beds. He returned to the land that had sustained his family for five generations and founded Drake Landing.
Today, Andrews and his team—which includes staff claiming accreditation by the National Sporting Clays Association—oversee a preserve that spans separate ranges for shooting sporting clays, pistols, and rifles. In addition to maintaining rigorous safety standards at the ranges, crews also supervise a 3-D archery course out in the forest. For outdoorsmen desiring live field experience, Drake Landing's team leads guided upland hunting for pheasant and quail as well as hunting trips for dove, deer, and Red October.
Utilizing the same technology used to train military skydivers, Paraclete XP SkyVenture re-creates the pulse-racing plunge of a free-fall through an enclosed vertical wind tunnel. Blasting air up in a seamless vertical column, SkyVenture's wind tunnel creates a flight chamber of smooth wall-to-wall airflow that grants you the temporary gift of flight without arm enchantments or the risk of melting waxen wings. Prior to liftoff participants receive video and personal instruction, then don their gear for two minute-long flights—the equivalent of three skydives from 13,000 feet or one ejection from Mount Olympus.
