Once an elite basketball player, Sweet Swing Golf head instructor Michael Hughes learned to love the game of golf later in life, transforming himself from a net-tickling gym rat to a birdie-hunting golf hamster by graduating from Myrtle Beach’s Golf Academy of America. Michael helps golfers of all skill levels to mold steady, repeatable, and flame-resistant swing techniques.
A setting sun isn't enough to halt play on the Hit Atlanta Tennis Center's 14 courts. Floodlights on each court allow director Scott Rose and his team of teaching pros to build love between their students and the game of tennis. Clinics for adults and juniors—split into groups according to skill level and age—form the backbone of the curriculum. As adults advance from beginner to intermediate clinics, they learn how to apply basic shots and scoring skills into the realm of pressure play and volleying. The junior academy starts kids out on sized-down equipment before graduating them to championship-quality gear when they’re deemed ready. The center sets itself apart from most tennis facilities by offering both hard and clay courts, whereas most feature hard courts that reveal a soft clay heart after you get to know them.

Piccadilly Circus's BLAST! show blows away audiences with a spectacle set under a capacious, 80-feet-tall big top. The 90-minute extravaganza features such death-defying acts as acrobats launching themselves out of catapults, showgirls balancing atop racing camels, and middle-aged men cutting back on their sodium intake. Ballerinas and bike-riding acrobats wrangle laughs from onlookers with off-balance antics while rotating wheels of death spin daredevils over the ring. Shows take place in a newly constructed big-top tent, featuring climate control and armrest-equipped, theater-style seats. Aggressively punctual guests can while away preshow time at the circus' petting zoo, riding elephants, camels, and ponies while regretting youthful decisions to run away from the circus and enroll in actuarial school.
Terri "The Boss" Moss knows a thing or two about motivation. The former narcotics investigator was 33 years old when she slipped on her first pair of boxing gloves, but her late arrival to the ring did nothing to prevent her from taking the fighting world by storm. She entered the professional circuit about two years later, and racked up five world-title bouts in three separate weight divisions during her nine-year career. After defeating Stephanie Dobbs—13 years her junior—in 2007 to become the Intercontinental Strawweight title-holder, the champ soon retired and founded Atlanta Corporate Fight Night, a charity boxing show that trains everyday folks from the business world while raising money for local causes.
Today, Moss continues to prove it's never too late to suit up for battle, teaching boxing lessons for wannabe professionals and weekend warriors alike in her own gym, Buckhead Fight Club. The graffiti-strewn space, which opened in May 2013, hosts boxing, taekwondo, and yoga classes, as well as on-site massages that help boxers relax enough to finally unclench their fists.
