The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
A roomy, clean and well-equipped facility, the Outer Banks Sports Club is a favorite for locals and visitors who want an upscale, adults-only work-out and a range of choices.
The Outer Banks Sports Club, built in a former movie theater in Nags Head, offers top-of-the line equipment, including free weights, cable stations, and weight machines suitable for beginners through top-notch athletes. Cardio equipment is also plentiful, from treadmills to elliptical to bikes.
From its attractive adobe color scheme to its two-tier layout --- cardio and mats are upstairs in a loft overlooking a spacious weight room --- and an upbeat satellite radio feed, the facililty has a welcoming, unhurried vibe for folks who are serious about exercising. Many of the same faces have been members of the the Outer Banks Sports Club for years. Members at OBSC are like family and they welcome everyone, including OBX visitors who come in for a day, week or season.
Various classes, including yoga, pilates, spin and circuit, are included as part of the membership. The 1,000-member club also offers tanning, massage, and training, as well as retail items.
