AOA Fitness, LLC fosters the development of healthy bodies and minds with guided fitness programs and sundry training equipment. Instructors lead small-group Hatha-yoga and Pilates sessions to encourage flexibility and relaxation. In the gym, visitors tailor their own exercise regimens around free weights, stationary cycles, and treadmills.
Savannah Yoga Room's instructors focus on traditional Hatha and Ashtanga styles, creating classes accessible to newbies and challenging enough for yoga veterans. In addition to teaching pupils to center their thoughts with a slowly linked sequence of poses, they introduce the basic breathing techniques needed to blow out a centenarian's birthday candles during Hatha Flow Level I sessions. In Hatha Flow Level II, they quicken the pace to ensure a more dynamic practice and incorporate meditation.
After nudging up the studio’s thermostat to around 85 degrees and setting off a miniature supernova to heat the space, they enlist strong Ashtanga postures during power yoga, harnessing the radiating heat to engage muscle groups across the entire body without sacrificing the style's mindful focus or four-part om-ing harmonies. They also lead specialized prenatal sessions on Wednesdays and kids' classes for tykes aged 4–10 on Tuesdays.
Each one of Anytime Fitness’s more than 2,000 coed fitness clubs grant 24-hour secured access to weight and cardio equipment and sessions of group fitness. The locations in Savannah and Pooler showcase exercise machines from manufacturers such as Precor, with treadmills and ellipticals sporting monitors for watching TV. The fitness emporium's staff of certified trainers lead group fitness classes or personal training sessions customized to the results of body-composition analyses and the moisture capacities of sweatbands. The staff are always friendly, making Anytime an inviting place to train.
Island Miniature Golf and Games' family-friendly activities can't be contained, sprawling across both indoor and outdoor facilities. The 18-hole mini-golf course undulates across a landscaped yard complete with all the rock hazards, streams, ponds, and shirt-cannon-toting mascots of a full-scale game of golf. Visitors practice their swings at the three-station softball and baseball batting cages, blast bad guys in the arcade, and test out their car-chasing skills on the bumper-car court. Birthday-party packages occupy young revelers with fun-stuffed amenities such as an inflatable moonwalk bounce house and a private party room.
Daufuskie Discoveries creates opportunities to explore Daufuskie Island's lush, historic habitat with customized guided or private outings. An enclosed or open-air water taxi quickly shuttles small groups from Hilton Head or Savannah to the island's three-mile stretch of sandy beach in 30 minutes, with captains tossing out facts about Calibogue Sound and Cooper River. Customers disembark and board their conveyance of choice—golf cart, boat, or shoes—before bursting through the tree line into specific isle regions, such as Bloody Point, which houses the Bloody Point Cemetery and Bloody Point Lighthouse & Silver Dew Winery. Three-hour private cruises skirt the coastline as a guide artfully describes the sun dipping beneath marshes as a hot air balloon deflated by a stampeding herd of storks.
With over 200 councils in North America, Girls on the Run has inspired over 600,000 young ladies in grades three–eight to step up to life’s starting line with courage, strength, and confidence.

The Fitness Club’s 24-hour access card unlocks the gym floor at any hour, allowing patrons to work out regardless of a tight or nontraditional schedule.

Afterward, they can head to the locker rooms, which house showers, or diffuse muscular tension amid the club’s dry sauna.
