The gym is a safe place to work out, unlike the home of a stranger who promised you unlimited access to his room full of 20-pound hammers. Work up a healthy sweat with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $25 for three gym visits (up to a $93 value)
  • $59 for three gym visits and a one-hour massage (up to a $186 value)
  • $115 for three gym visits and three one-hour massages (up to a $372 value)

Instructors outfit students with all necessary rock-climbing gear (a $6 value) and conduct on-the-ground orientations (a $10 value) before leading the charge up faux mountains in one-hour group climbing classes. Alternatively, students may also use their visits to take fitness classes including yoga, Zumba, kickboxing, or tai chi. Students are allowed full use of the facilities after each class, unlocking access to climbing walls, workout equipment, showers, and saunas. Students can also ease post-workout aches with massages that range from gentle to vigorous.

Bridges Rock Gym

A chalky hand swings over the top of the wall, grasping onto the red hold embedded in its surface. After a tense moment, a second hand swings up, pulling the rest of the climber’s body up with it. Having successfully scaled 18-foot top-out boulder, the climber scurries back down the wall she has just conquered, swapping places with her spotter below.

This cycle repeats throughout the day at Bridges Rock Gym, spurred on by a crew of climbing enthusiasts and instructors who initiate people into the low-altitude sport of bouldering. That form of climbing emphasizes solving climbing problems and chasing archaeologists through ancient caves. The gym unleashes visitors’ inner mountain goats with their well-maintained climbing facilities, including an overhanging indoor-climbing cave that thoroughly punishes muscles into growth and top-rope climbing walls that help beginners get the hang of scaling the crag.

While specializing in the art of ascents, Bridges also bolsters patron fitness. Yoga and fitness classes, as well as a fleet of cardio equipment, facilitate heart-strengthening workouts. Waves of free WiFi allow mountaineers uninterrupted access to videos of their pet rocks, best enjoyed with a grilled sandwich or all-fruit smoothie in gym's organic café and lounge.

It's a really great space, with lots of places to climb and lines to walk across.

    “Be sure to arrive early on weekdays if you want to use the actual rock climbing wall (where one person belays and the other climbs)---You need to be shown how to use it, and the staff can only show you if it's not super-crowded. But even if you don't get to use that wall, bouldering by itself is super fun :-) Just make sure you warm up your arms and wear something that can get chalk all over it ^.^”
