At the dawn of the world, everyone rock-climb commuted to work. It was only after the invention of falling, however, that rock climbing became thrilling, sexy, and glamorous. Today's Groupon invites you to live the life of a rock star: for $40, you get a one-month climbing membership with equipment rental and a beginner belay class at Central Rock Gym in Worcester and Hadley (an $89 value).
Central Rock Gym boasts 30,500 total square feet of indoor climbing between its two locations, including walls that range from 15 feet to more than 40 feet tall, terrain for all skill levels, 66 climbing stations, and 3,500 square feet of bouldering. All students who are first-time rock conquerors are required to take the beginner belay class, which is included with this Groupon. Read the first-time climber rules and tips before your first visit to the gym. Climbing equipment is also included with this membership deal. Like all nonhorizontal activities, such as skydiving and sleeping, all climbers must sign a waiver and release of claims agreement. Members also enjoy access to weights, exercise equipment, and twice-weekly yoga classes. Central Rock Gym will waive initiation fees for Groupon users who wish to continue their membership after the first month.
Central Rock Gym
Climbers cling to the carefully placed hand grips, strategizing their way up the side of the rock-like cliff. They have come to Watertown to conquer the Central Rock Gym's 28,000 square feet of indoor mountains, climbing walls reaching 50' in height. The new Watertown location with temperature control and air-conditioning is one of Central Rock Gym's four indoor facilities spread throughout New England. At each, experts guide novice climbers through introductory classes or supervise more seasoned members scaling the walls' highest heights. Memberships unlock access to all four facilities, gear for the first month, and the use exercise equipment and weights. In addition to climbing and conditioning, members can also take advantage of fitness classes ranging from yoga and Pilates to Zumba and spin sessions. Gyms also welcome non-members, whether they're trying things out with a day pass or interested in events including birthday parties, summer camps, and corporate team-building breakouts.
