It was a summer getaway for generations of children, but in 2011, after almost 50 years of laughter and fun, Sun Valley Beach closed its doors indefinitely. The waterslides have become as dry as beef jerky, the miniature golf course remains unputted, and the 1.5-acre pool is now home only to the memory of frolicking. But not all hope is lost. Save Sun Valley Beach, a coalition of local businessmen who refuse to give up on their childhood swimming spot, wants to reopen the park and is ready to kickstart their efforts with a Beach Blast.

Since its 1965 founding in Venice Beach, California, Gold's Gym has dotted the globe with more than 600 locations where professional athletes and exercise newbies gather under the umbrella of personal strength. Nearly 3.5 million Gold's members chart and aim for their fitness peaks, perspiring beneath the gaze of certified personal trainers or pedaling beside peers during group riding sessions. In a diverse lineup of group classes, patrons strengthen abs with core-building classes, fuse Pilates and yoga during Centergy classes, and amp up heart rates with the pulsating Latin-dance moves of Zumba routines. Many Gold's Gym locations stockpile futuristic amenities, such as cardio machines with individual iPod docks and televisions that help keep patrons motivated by only showing Gatorade commercials.

Though the students at The Ladies Room don't pull up in limos with personal assistants, they might as well be celebrities. Exotic classes have them don their heels and practice moves all while they build confidence, bolster their body image, and work up a sweat. The class is one of many dance-centric fitness offerings in an encouraging atmosphere for students of every level; also on the schedule are groovy Zumba sessions, belly-dancing classes, and the Hot Mix—a medley of Zumba and Flirty Girl Fitness exercises. For a less music-oriented fitness class, participants can also check out a fitness camp or Insanity workout class.
The Ultimate Fitness Camp is West Georgia's #1 choice for Health, Fat Loss and Athletic Performance. Clients can quickly reach their goals in our Fitness Bootcamp, Personal Training or Weight Management University.
The coaches at CrossFit Douglasville choose the system precisely because of its generality. Its series of intense, constantly varied exercises can aid participants in perfecting fitness skills applicable to everything from running marathons to doing daily chores. During workouts that change each session, they lift weights, sprint, squat, lunge, push, pull, climb, and more—all useful, everyday motions that enhance speed, agility, and power. They ensure success, too, by scaling those effective exercises to everyone's abilities and fitness levels. Keeping everyone pumped is key, so all classes are infused with positive reinforcement, support, and an atmosphere of team spirit. In line with CrossFit's commitment to overall health, the trainers also host nutritional workshops and provide dietary advice.
