    Equipment: Johnny G Spinner/Keiser cycles, aqua jogger belts, water aerobic equipment Students should bring: Water Average class length: Two hours Number of Staff: 1?5 Class location: Outdoors only Established: 2011 Registration required: No Good for beginners: Yes Guests allowed: Yes Parking: Parking lot Q&A with Saidah Kinerman, Instructor/Owner Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated? I offer a variety of different exercises to meet all fitness levels. I believe the most important thing is self efficacy. It is my goal that everyone participating in class will be able to complete at least one exercise well. There is also a lot of peer support from other class members and encouragement from the instructor. Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts? Definitely, most of the music that is played in class is pop and today's top hits. Mainly upbeat current tunes. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? This class combines cycling with core routines and high intensity water workouts. I relocated from California where fitness fusion is common. This class is offered in the world-renowned Piedmont Park in Midtown Atlanta, is convenient, and offers a total body workout.

  • Appalachian Trail Conservancy
    The Appalachian Trail stretches from Georgia to Maine, running 2,180 miles over mountains, rocky slopes, and deep valleys. Since it was established in 1925, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) has cared for the trail, maintaining 250,000 acres of public land. The organization educates hikers on Leave No Trace camping and why it's not a good idea to challenge a bear to a hugging contest. Volunteers and trail crews build and repair shelters along the footpath and engage youth and community members in outdoor activities. In addition to these human-oriented services, the ATC works to protect endangered species living along the trail and to preserve the land's watershed streams and migratory corridor.

  • Stone Mountain Park
    Calling Stone Mountain massive is something of an understatement. Spread across 3,200 acres, the park has become one of the most popular family destinations in Atlanta thanks to its collection of interactive attractions and its status as Atlanta's largest outdoor gym. That summit grows closer and closer through the window of Stone Mountain Park's signature attraction, The Summit Skyride. The high-speed cable car sweeps over the mountain, passing by the giant figures etched into the Confederate Memorial Carving and granting its passengers incredible views. Visibility stretches more than 60 miles in all directions, revealing lakes, the Atlanta skyline, and the Appalachian Mountains. Even with the stunning views, visitors might be tempted to descend from Stone Mountain's top to experience the Lasershow Spectacular in Mountainvision and dozens of attractions offered by the park, including the Scenic Railroad and SkyHike, one of the nation's largest adventure ropes courses. Other attractions include the immersive 4-D Experience and the Geyser Towers course that takes visitors through a water-filled course of rope bridges and net tunnels that sporadically erupt water. In other parts of the park, they'll find the century-old Grist Mill and a quaint covered bridge. Seasonal events?including fall festivals and other holiday festivities?pack the park's calendar, ensuring that lovers of both natural and man-made spectacles find something to marvel at.

    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.
