More people than ever are living a sedentary lifestyle: waking up in their racecar beds, driving to work in their racecars, sitting for eight hours in the passenger seats of experimental racecars as men in lab coats slam them into concrete walls, and then driving home again. Race to physical activity with this Groupon.

Before climbers embark on two months of scaling ClimbX’s walls, experienced instructors lead them through an introductory class that covers climbing safety and skills, belay techniques, knots, and climbing commands. Students also learn the rating scales of the walls’ many routes and how to boulder along craggy surfaces.
ClimbX's indoor, ever-changing rock walls mimic the dusty color of actual outdoor crags. In this environment, climbers of all ages and abilities strap on safety equipment and climbing gear and learn to master the hand and toe grips that cover the arena's artificial rock formations. The outgoing and experienced staff teaches introductory-level climbing courses that impart basic safety procedures, proper belay technique, and climbing commands. A kids' climbing club coaches climbers aged 17 and younger through the basics of tying top-rope knots and securing handholds tightly even when those handholds start to quietly chuckle. When not helping people turn into spider-people, the staff also hosts birthday parties and corporate teambuilding events.
ClimbX is legit solely for the fact that it's not too big, the routes are maintained, and the staff is helpful if and when you ask.Victoria P, 3/13/12
The intro class they do is great... Enough info to keep you safe, but not enough to leave you bored. Great!Justin K., 2/9/12
