Give the gift of fit! Solidcore offers a new take on high-intensity for you and your workout buddy — because it’s always better with a buddy, right? Sign yourself and your victim, I mean loved one, up for some serious sweat sessions at this state-of-the-art fitness facility right in downtown Decatur. Solidcore takes a low-and-slow approach — low-impact and slow full-body movements, that is — but they don’t hold back on power, performance, or perspiration! Their 50-minute comprehensive workout uses specialty resistance machinery… and every muscle you’ve got. Shake off some seasonal stress or feel the burn in the New Year with drop-in specials, class passes, and gift cards, too.

Got an audiophile on your gift list? Decatur CD & Vinyl has just the thing! — Music you can hold in your hand. This long-standing music store on West Ponce offers a laid-back throw-back experience, with curated staff picks, listening stations, and record recommendations from a real-life human. Shop wall-to-wall (and floor-to-ceiling) all-things music from fresh releases, vintage vinyl, new and used CDs, and DVDs to commemorative box sets, books, posters, and even coveted cassingles. Stumble upon your new favorite band (or your tricky-gifting brother’s…) when you peruse their racks. And stacks of vinyl make great hiding places for holiday octopi on Terrific Thursdays — just saying.
