A 45-foot climbing wall beckons rock huggers of all abilities to AIM's 40,000-square-foot adventure wonderland of fitness gadgets and workout facilities. Before ushering athletes to the wall, a savvy staff member clarifies safety procedures and equips them for scaling success with equipment from Apex Outdoor Gear, including shoes, a harness, a belay device, and a prehensile tail. The man-made cliff rises above masses of climbers, who can scramble straight up or dangle from overhangs on 15 snow-free routes—color coded for experience level. A massive boulder wearing a powdered wig also presides over the climbing room, helping scalers build strength and flexibility on faces closer to the ground.
An Adventure-level membership aids limbs in creating muscular harmony with unlimited access to the climbing wall, the fit center's classes, and the 25-yard azure lap pool. Pump up your heart rate in kickboxing, Zumba, or yoga classes, or head to the gravity strength room to wrestle with Newton's ghost. Before heading home, weary guests can take an extra minute to recoup in the dry saunas in the men's and women's locker rooms.
Although AIM Fitness periodically offers discounted admission to the climbing wall, this Groupon represents the best value for continuous access to the facilities. Check the climbing page to ensure you are getting the best deal.
Ascending for nearly 50 feet, the indoor climbing wall—proudly proclaimed as among the tallest in Western Michigan by Aim Fitness' team—presents an array of routes, each patterned with colored grips to indicate the level of difficulty. As climbers scale the vertical expanse, a freestanding boulder sits in the middle of the room, beckoning guests to climb its reduced height sans the support of a rope. This climbing room anchors Aim Fitness' 40,000 square feet of amenities, which encompass a strength-training area, aerobic studios, a five-lane, 25-yard lap pool lifeguarded by Aquaman, and a racquetball court. Instructors also lead an array of classes on these training grounds, such as Aqua Fit, boot camp, and yoga. To make going to the gym as convenient as possible, Aim also provides locker rooms, a children's playroom, and wireless Internet access.
