The first person at Chattahoochee Gold Swim to exemplify the attributes of determination and tenacity so highly valued by coach Pat Murphy, the club's founder, was not a swimmer, nor did the character-defining event occur near the water. The person in question was a hard-working landscaper, who—though he had only one arm—approached his work with an unbridled passion that coach Murphy couldn’t help but admire. Keeping the landscaper ever in his mind, Pat—with the help of his team of coaches and instructors—strives to impart a similar sense of commitment, integrity, and inspiration in swimmers of all ages via a host of lessons, programs, and swim meets. Throughout the year, the crew of coaches can be found in the pool and on the deck helming fun and educational lessons for students of all levels. The introductory parent-tot program teaches first-time swimmers the basics of water safety, and the swim league grants kids the opportunity to meet for weekly practices in a noncompetitive environment, free of the middive thumb wars often associated with competitive programs. Along with lessons and classes, Chattahoochee Gold Swim offers fitness programs, such as water aerobics, to help participants streamline their physiques.

Stuart Enloe has logged some serious time in the sky. He's spent more than 200 hours in gas balloons, performed more than 80 parachute jumps, flew for 600 hours in airplanes, and totaled a whopping 2,700 hours in hot-air balloons. In total, he has spent enough time in the air to justify carving a second home into a cloud?more than 145 days. At his main aerial outlet, Balloon Atlanta, Stuart carries this experience with him on every flight. He maintains a fleet of colorful hot-air balloons, available for scenic flights over some of the Southeast's most stunning landscapes. His passengers float over Lake Lanier, just barely skimming the surface, or sail up until mountains frame the warm light of sunset and set the scene for a romantic kiss or engagement. Regardless of which route he follows, a dedicated crew follows on the ground to pack away equipment and provide passengers a ride back to the starting point once the balloon lands.

Cheerleading isn't just for football games, and gymnastics isn't only for showing off at board meetings. The two sports are also sure-fire ways to teach discipline and teamwork while boosting endurance and physical fitness. At World of Gymnastics and Cheer, students as young as 18 months get a jump-start on these skills inside the 20,000-square-foot facility. The rec program instills everything from stretching basics to advanced tumbling, and the competitive gymnastics program proudly participates in both the AAU and USA programs. Meanwhile, World of Cheer, the recreational and competitive program, prepares members and gives them the opportunity to compete on a national level.

Those that practice a slew of functional movements performed at high intensity can describe their workout to others with one word: CrossFit. The fitness regimen blasts fat, revs up metabolism, and builds muscle tone thanks to WODs, or Workouts of the Day, which may include squats, kettlebell swings, and jumping jacks. At The Garage, A CrossFit Gym, members swap out the usual gym routines such as running on the treadmill or bench-pressing a personal trainer for these constantly changing workouts?which are led by a team of qualified fitness professionals. And though CrossFit is prominently featured at The Garage, it's not the only focus. The staff helps members boost their health with nutritional guidance, train for marathons with running workshops, and slay stress during yoga classes.

Most 5Ks and mud runs cater to adults. Adrenaline Run is not most 5Ks and mud runs. The just-for-teens event pits participants against natural and human-made obstacles, challenging them with rocky terrain, waterways, and homework. Some heats are timed, but youths uninterested in stats or clocks in general can join in untimed runs. After the challenging scramble concludes, racers head to the after-party for food, live music, and costume contests awarding the Most Creative and Most School Spirited ensembles. Both participants and spectators can take a gentler jaunt through a bounce-house course, or sit back and listen to performances while sharing mud-splattered stories.
