Evolution Rock + Fitness
At Evolution Rock + Fitness, the climbing courses, fitness programs, and climbing parties follow its mission statement's goal "To build upon, strengthen, and evolve with climbers and the climbing community." Boasting 16,000 square feet of climbing surface, the center provides some of the most modern and extensive climbing walls in northern New England. On a given day, a mix of expert and novice climbers scale surfaces through lead climbing, speed climbing, and bouldering. Energy-efficient and nontoxic furnishings earned the center accolades as a top energy efficient and environmentally friendly climbing gym in the region. A team of design experts at Rockwerx in Barre, Mass., also sculpted the signature walls, which welcome all ranges of climbers throughout the week. In addition to whipping people into shape, Evolution Rock + Fitness seeks to be "the conduit between this rich history and the future of climbing." The Fitness center also offers yoga and Pilates mat classes, aerial fabric yoga, zumba, and a mix of fitness equipment.
