Strong Hold Climbing Gym at Hester's Family Fitness beckons to rock clingers of all skill levels with more than 4,000 square feet of top-rope routes, bouldering, and peerless climbing classes. With padded floors throughout, Strong Hold's crew of climbers can scale the multicolored routes with no fear of hard falls, and Strong Hold equips each climber with the harness, shoes, and cliff-badger bait necessary for topping its walls. Introductory classes, taught by master stone whisperers, cover the basics of rope work, proper knots, and the techniques required for pulling on slopers or crimps.
More than 100 cardio machines furnish the floors where members pump legs and arms while watching flat-screen TVs lining walls. The latest weight-lifting equipment complements cardio workouts, and more than 60 fitness and water aerobics classes are scheduled each week such as CrossFit and Zumba. Two racquetball courts and a basketball court offer squeaky-floored games and hardy workouts, and an indoor track provides ample space to run no matter the season. While parents are breaking sweats, kids can frolic in the supervised playroom. Kids can also get in on the action with fitness classes designed just for them. Members can treat muscles to a soothing sauna, steam room, or whirlpool respite before refueling in the café with a snack and beverage.
