    Muscle Up With These Unique Asheville Fitness Options

    Asheville Area Fitness Options

    With the New Year come fitness resolutions that often by February fall by the wayside. Keeping exercise interesting and varied is key to a regimen that sticks. In Asheville, fun, unique ways to work out are plentiful; the hardest part will be choosing a fitness track to take. Below, a few options to inject some excitement into exercise:

    Circus Arts in Asheville

    No, this isn’t clown school. Think silks, trapeze, hand balancing and other specialized movement arts. At Aerial Space studio – the first circus arts studio in N.C. – students can take group classes and private lessons in these specialties, along with contortion, slacklining, pushing hands and more.

    Interval Training

    If you’re looking for an innovative interval-based strength and endurance program, intentionally crafted to deliver a specific intensity, try the MADabolic program. Everything is predetermined, carefully structured and built to complement any active lifestyle. MADabolic – which stands for momentum, anaerobic and durability – is designed around work-to-rest ratios, providing an intense environment scalable to your abilities.

    Pole Fitness

    CrossFit AshevilleOnce confined to gentleman’s clubs, pole dancing has gained popularity as a mainstream form of fitness. At Empyrean Arts in South Slope, students can try their hand at pole or chair dance, pole spin, flexibility contortion, or partner acrobatics, along with an array of circus arts options.

    CrossFit Asheville

    CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. Regardless of sport or competitive level, CrossFit helps people feel solid, move efficiently, and recover quickly, reducing risk for injury while increasing overall athleticism. Two local options are CrossFit Asheville and CrossFit Pisgah.

    Hot Yoga

    If you love yoga but also crave a cardiovascular boost, here’s a cool option: hot yoga. Hot yoga is performed in intentionally heated studios to protect muscles for safe deep stretches and greater freedom of movement. The heat opens pores to flush out toxins, and increases the heart rate. Hot Yoga Asheville offers beginning (Bikram) hot yoga classes – a series of 26 postures done two times over – and hot Vinyasa flow classes, set to upbeat music and incorporating more Ashtanga postures like downward dog, warrior and pigeon.

    Indoor Rock Climbing

    Rock Climbing Gym AshevilleWhen the weather’s inclement, or you just don’t want to venture outside Asheville to get a rock climbing adventure in, opt for an indoor climbing wall. Climbmax Climbing has two locations, and offers basic belay instruction, climbing basics skills courses, and lead skill courses, among others.

    Barre Workout

    Utilizing the ballet barre to perform small isometric movements set to music, barre workouts tone glutes, thighs, abs and arms. At Pure Barre in South Asheville, all classes are the same level, and the positions and movements are basic – it’s how deep you work them that creates a challenging workout.

    Expressive Dance

    Exercise that doesn’t feel like exercise might just be the ticket to a sustained fitness regimen. At Studio Zahiya, a boutique dance and movement space, you can take belly dance, hip hop, and Bhangra – an energetic and joyful dance from Northern India. Drop-in and enrollment dance classes are available for adults and kids.

    Native American Knowledge and Western Science Intertwine in N.C. Arboretum's Roots of Wisdom Exhibit

    NC Arboretum Asheville

    Studying the Earth’s past in order to improve its future may be a tried-and-true strategy, but The North Carolina Arboretum brings fresh perspective to the process in its exhibit Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge. Shared Science., on display through May 6, 2018. The national traveling exhibit, proudly sponsored by Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty, educates visitors about the ways in which traditional knowledge of indigenous peoples and cutting-edge Western science are intertwined to enhance the natural world.

Visitors to the exhibit will come away with a new perspective on some not-so-new methods for drawing from the Earth’s resources for the greater good.

    Roots of Wisdom NC ArboretumThe North Carolina Arboretum, located just south of Asheville on 434 acres of public gardens, has an ongoing history of and keen interest in working with native indigenous communities.

    Get a Taste of Asheville's Flourishing Food and Drink Scene

    Asheville Beer and Breweries

    The breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains enveloping Asheville, N.C., have long-established the city’s reputation as a mountain lover’s mecca. But in recent years, Asheville has reached the pinnacle of another scene: food and drink. From creative craft cocktails to farm-collaborative dining to an unrivaled micro-brew boom, Asheville has become an epicurean’s escape like no other.

    Asheville is in a Glass All by Itself

    Asheville Craft CocktailsThe craft cocktail scene in Asheville has gained a large, loyal following, not through lots of bells and whistles, but thanks to carefully curated, thoughtful recipes that incorporate seasonal, locally grown herbs, fruits and vegetables to produce the freshest cocktails possible. From downtown Asheville’s bustling eateries boasting popular bars, to laid-back lounges devoted exclusively to the art of the creative cocktail, there’s no shortage of spots to experience the city’s spirited side.

    A Brewing Movement in Asheville

    With more than two dozen craft breweries operating locally (and that number is growing at a mind-boggling pace), it’s no wonder Asheville has garnered national attention as an innovative, progressive player in the micro-brew boom. With the South Slope in downtown Asheville serving as craft-brew central, the local-tap trend has branched to all corners of the city, providing beer aficianados with high-quality, painstakingly crafted brews boasting flavor undertones that break new ground – think jalapeno, raspberries, dark chocolate, even peanut butter. With the attention to detail small-batch brewing demands, Asheville’s local beers are well-deserving of the unrivalled reputation they’ve gained.

    Farm-Collaborative, Locally Sourced Dining

    Asheville Fresh FoodThe Asheville area is lucky to be home to a range of farms, producing everything from grassfed beef and pastured pork to heirloom grains and cave-aged cheeses. And Asheville’s restaurants have taken full advantage of their proximity to such an eclectic range of farm-fresh products, crafting their menus around seasonal offerings and incorporating the freshest finds into their dishes. Big-box chains are notably missing from downtown Asheville; instead, you’ll find one-of-a-kind eateries encompassing the locally driven mindset particular to Asheville. With such notable chefs as Katie Button (Curate and Nightbell), John Fleer (Rhubarb and The Rhu), and Elliott Moss (Buxton Hall) at the helm, the Asheville restaurant scene sees no signs of slowing down.

    Off-Beat and Hard to Beat

    Looking for a not-your-everyday food experience? Asheville boasts plenty of them. There’s nothing vanilla about a molasses bourbon doughnut (Hole) or Basil Lemonade Pepita Milk ice cream (The Hop Ice Cream Café); and with more than 70 food trucks in Asheville offering everything from Lebanese Poutine (Gypsy Queen) to Pork Belly Bao (Bun Intended), adventurous mobile munching has never been more satisfying.

    Gain Guidance on Investment Property Purchases in Asheville

    Rental Investment Property Asheville

    If you’re in the market for an investment property in Asheville, you’re probably aware of the wide range of properties available, and the long list of logistics involved in purchasing one of those properties. Navigating the complicated process of buying a single- or multi-family home, a parcel of land, or a commercial building can be daunting, but it can be made less so by aligning with a real estate agency adept at spearheading such deals. Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty has agents specially equipped to guide you through the ins and outs of investment property purchases, offering a deeper knowledge and invaluable tips that might otherwise be unavailable from a less experienced agent. Below, a few ways Mosaic makes the process more manageable, helping you to get the best deal on your investment:

    Cap Rate and Contract Considerations

    Commercial Investment Property AshevilleOne important guide in shopping for an income-producing property is the capitalization rate – the ratio of the property’s net income to its purchase price. Evaluating the rate of return on your investment goes beyond a simple math equation; things to consider include financing duration, interest rates, and the type and condition of investment property. A Mosaic agent can dig deep for you, helping you to compare the cap rate on several properties and hone in on the one that gets you the best return on your investment.

    Transaction contracts and what they contain vary widely depending on the type of property. Which one to implement, and what it should include in the fine print, can be complicated to understand, which is why it helps to have Mosaic at the table. How quickly the process during the examination period (due diligence) is completed is crucial, something that Mosaic agents know and prepare for accordingly.

    Assembling Your Team

    Investment Properties AshevilleBuying an investment property often involves retaining a variety of experts for inspections, code reviews, and structural and environmental components. Do you need an architect, civil engineer, builder, surveyor? Mosaic agents can advise you on which specialists make sense to add to your team, and which assessments need to be covered.

    Types of Leases

    When you’re looking at an investment property purchase, one of the things to consider is the type of lease you will be implementing with your tenant. You may be unfamiliar with the terms of a gross lease, a full-service lease, or a triple-net lease, so it’s important to have an agent who can help you weigh the pros and cons to each of these options.

    These are just a minute portion of the many bases that must be covered when diving into an investment property deal. For a personalized plan suited to your investment goals, or for more general information on real estate in the Asheville area, please contact Mike Figura at Mike@MyMosaicRealty.com or call him anytime at (828) 337-8190.
