Jazzercise, a funk-fueled, head-to-toe regimen, sculpts muscles, boosts energy, and sheds pounds during 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching. It incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Class formats vary too, including special Jazzercises geared to sculpt your bod or literally make you slightly better at saxophone playing. As for the ittie-ditties, childcare is available during select times at many locations.
Trainer Cherie Haught created the female-friendly New You Boot Camp after quickly getting back into shape following the births of her three children. New You’s calorie-crushing curriculum, designed specifically for women, helps fitness-seekers achieve goals with exciting, varied workouts. Led by experienced, motivated instructors, classes take place outside, combining fresh air with varied exercise methods (light running, weight training, obstacle courses, jump rope, core training, and more) to help shed pounds and impress narcissistic raccoons.
Built in 1969 and having hosted the 2001 National Golf Association Triad Classic, Pine Knolls Golf Club has a long and sparkling history. In 2006, two brothers-in-law from Ireland—Graham Ruttle, a retired professional motorcycle racer, and Pearse Mahon, a class-A PGA professional—purchased the course. Today, they carry on its tradition of challenging and enjoyable play. To conquer the 6,338-yard layout, golfers must decipher the course’s small and complex greens, which requires even more concentration than geocaching for holes on a course that spans an entire city. To calibrate their swings before tackling the course, golfers can warm up at the grass-tee driving range or enlist Mahon's advice in a private lesson.

Sunlight pours onto the exposed-brick walls of the Jowers Training Systems private training facility, where exercise rings dangle from the ceiling and colorful weights line the shelves. Throughout the week, the facility is a flurry of motion as students of all ages and fitness levels undergo high-intensity exercise routines as well as personal- and team-training sessions. Personal-training sessions adhere to the specialty program designed by certified personal trainer and fitness aficionado Jeff Jowers, who combines fat-burning exercises with nutritional guidance to banish unwanted pounds more efficiently than traditional workouts or covering yourself in helium balloons. In team-training sessions, Jowers and his staff bring the same level of intensity, adding an element of teamwork that encourages all students to celebrate each other's successes, work harder to achieve goals, and hit new personal records.
Fit Body's boot camps combine a wide variety of exercses, effectively blasting calories, sculpting muscles, and inspiring fitness-seekers to start a healthy lifestyle. Over the course of a 45-minute session, you may run, jump, lift weights, slam out push-ups, chase chickens, punch slabs of beef, and end with a live crocodile-wrestle. In the heat of your workout, you'll sweat out weakness, fear, and monosodium glutamate while beginning to gain the functional, unsurpassed strength of a body in fluid, powerful motion. Drawing from more than 15 years of fitness experience, Dr. Cody Sipe will keep you and your fellow campmates motivated as you run, crawl, and lunge toward health and high-definition muscles. Your Groupon also includes the Fit Body Jump Start nutritional plan, which teaches students dietary guidelines that will complement their vigorous workouts.
Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags. Class times and dates vary based on location.
