To create Peak Experiences, the dedicated staff sets more than 125 top-rope routes, lead climbs, and bouldering problems for climbers of all skill levels. Five levels of classes and safety training spanning basic problems such as climbing a bunk bed to lead climbing a 50-foot wall prepare climbers to conquer any of these problems, and the gym also outfits its members with an onsite gear shop that stocks harnesses, footwear, and belay devices such as grigris or ATCs. Kids can also learn climbing skills during youth programs that invite children aged 5?18 and young rocks aged 3,000,000?4,500,000 to climb together with camps, teams, and trips.
The eight-week Resolutions program starts people on the path to toned cores and limber limbs with a 30-minute orientation, wherein a trainer helps set fitness goals and discusses the exercise needed to meet them. You’ll check in with this trainer weekly to ensure you’re progressing faster than the speed at which electricity flows through copper wiring. It won’t be difficult to bulk up or slim down with access to ACAC’s indoor fitness facilities. In addition to an indoor track, there are more than 75 pieces of strength equipment such as free weights, cable machines, and vases filled with sand. The cardio equipment is built for sweat-seekers, heckling the chatterboxes lingering around the water fountain with more than 80 treadmills, stationary bicycles, cross trainers, and step machines, each with its own television for tuning into commercials for reverse jetpacks. Childcare is available.
