Smarties, we’re super excited to bring to you a fun contest to honor one lucky Charlotte Dad. We’re asking you, Smarty Charlotte, to nominate your hubs/dad/brother, you name it, and enter him to win the coolest Dad swag in town!
Maybe he’s that perfect dad who is at every swim team practice with a stroller and three kids in tow and a smile on his face no matter what. Maybe he’s that perfect dad who gives back to his community and signs up for every 5k/10k/13.1/26.1 just because. Maybe he’s that perfect dad who sits patiently through every ballet recital, soccer tournament, LAX tournament, gynmastics meet or baseball game and beams with pride when his child simply participates. Or maybe he’s the perfect role model for his children through faith, hope, love and health. Whatever the reason, we want to meet Y-O-U-R guy and pamper him with awesomeness this 2K13 Father’s Day.
Great, so what’s in the purse? Well, feast your eyes, Smarties! This is all compliments of our Smarty friends at FlyWheel who made all of this happen!

Dad’s Gift #2 ~ a $60.00 Cowbell Gift Card, the ultimate Burger Bar!
They know all about Southern hospitality, comfort provisions and rock and roll. Charlotte’s their town, they know it and love it, but they also know what it needs- a little inspiration from the icons who’ve provoked their own vivacious nature. That’s why they created Cowbell Burger & Bar, to satisfy not only in taste but also in sight and sound. Their artisanal burgers range from acoustic to bass-driven. All of their gourmet patties are hand-ground, each sauce, from the bacon marmalade to the pineapple Sriracha dressing, is made fresh in house, and buns are baked right here in NC. Whether you’re looking for the best burger in Charlotte or to bask in Uptown nightlife, kick back in a vintage styled banquette or grab a seat at the whiskey bar to catch classic videos streaming above. Gulp, Graze and get your rock and roll on at Cowbell.

Dad’s Gift #3 ~ The FlyWheel Charlotte/Ballantyne FD Package ~ $150.00 Value (Includes 8 Flywheel Cycle Classes/2 SportBarre Classes)
FlyWheel is an experience that lasts 45 or 60 minutes and includes climbs and descents, while working arms with weighted bars. It’s an amazing escape that challenges your body and relaxes your mind. Their studios offer stadium-style seating, making every seat in the house a good one. Music is very much an integral part of the Flywheel experience. Their kick-booty playlists are created by instructors from a collection of music carefully curated by our own in-house DJ. Instructors choreograph their own classes, syncing their rides to the beat, assuring a fresh ride every time, and showing a little glimpse of their unique personalities. In a Flywheel class, your instructor will lead the way, suggesting target resistance levels and RPM’s to strive for. But YOU decide exactly what’s right for you by controlling the technology on your bike. If you’re feeling pumped, ride harder and faster than the targets. And if you’re just beginning, you can take it down a notch. Your Flywheel bike is tailor-made and can be customized for you. Not only do you set the positions that fit your body and comfort levels, but you control your “tech-pack”. Each bike has a tech-pack that displays your resistance (“torq”), your speed (RPM’s) and your power output (current and cumulative for the class). This allows you to know how you’re performing at all times.
If you’re the competitive type, you may opt in to participate in the ultimate in-studio Torqboards – large-screen displays that occasionally flash leaderboards that show how you’re performing. Your stats for every ride will be recorded and made available in your private account on our website. You’ll see your own metrics for every ride you take with Flywheel, including RPM’s, Torq, Speed, Power, Distance and Estimated Calories. This will allow you to set your own goals and measure your performance over time.
And of course, you should expect all the extras they don’t consider extra – including free towels, bike shoes, lockers and more to keep you comfortable and riding at peak performance.
FlyBarre SPORT combines the full-body strengthening and sculpting principles of FlyBarre with a targeted focus on developing upper body and core strength. Both men and women can benefit from the intensity and challenge of FlyBarre SPORT. Expect heavier weights, cardio blasts, and music that pushes you to the limit.
You’ll ride just once before you understand completely, “Why Flywheel?”
