Wild Walls Indoor Climbing Gym sprawls across 6,000 square feet of a historic armory building, challenging gravity-bound bodies with various climbing and bouldering structures. “People have the misconception that rock climbing is like an amusement ride,” says Todd, the general manager. Wild Walls lures exercisers from dull workouts, such as watching paint dry on dumbbells, by offering challenging routes, tricky angles, and a wide variety of top-rope and sport-lead routes. Indoor adventurers can vary sweat sessions with yoga classes.
Wild Walls also stocks portable walls that soar to 16 and 24 feet, ideal for birthday celebrants or bosses who need a way to determine which employee gets a raise. For more permanent climbing surfaces, its staffers can install traverse walls, which run horizontally, in locations such as school gyms or underground monkey-training facilities.
In the tasting room of Bridge Press Cellars and Emvy Cellars, guests can indulge in samples or purchase bottles of their varietals, including pinot blanc, chenin blanc, and an array of blends. Wines are served aside hummus platters and cheese plates featuring seasonal fruits, smoked almonds, and salami. On the first Friday of each month, the wine bar showcases new artwork and live music.
With six aquatic centers scattered across town, Spokane Parks and Recreation champions summertime fun with well-equipped hydro-havens. With an adult (18 years old or older) or youth (3–17 years old) pass, swimmers can take advantage of unlimited recreational pool access. Most of the aquatic centers boast zero-depth entry for toddlers to safely wet their feet, as well as waterslides, separate lap pools, and the entire cast from Law and Order: Pacific Ocean Unit as lifeguards. Accompanying the maritime merriment, each facility also includes a large deck for lounging outside of the pool as well as adjacent parks and shaded areas for hiding from falling sunbeams.
The fun, active group classes at Drew LeBlanc's Elite Fitness boost health and vigor under the guidance of friendly, professional trainers. Cardio workouts, such as calorie-crushing dance-based Zumba, maximize heart and lung efficiency, while the brawn-boosting Bodypump class turns everyday muscles into washboards, six-packs, and other useful household items. Diligent exercisers can fight the battle of the bulge with a weight-loss boot camp or learn to protect their neighborhoods from gangs of delinquent punching bags with kickboxing lessons. The modern fitness center also houses private shower facilities for postworkout de-salting.
9th Street Bistro's skilled flavor experts wield natural and organic ingredients to sate cravings for fresh salads, soups, and made-to-order entrees. Their menu changes with the season, offering picks from the finest sandwich trees and soup from the heartiest broth bearing cows. Stacked fare—including the Portobello panini ($6.99), where marinated Portobello mushrooms laze beneath bubbling buffalo mozzarella, organic, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil pesto on herbed foccacia—is balanced on locally crafted artisan bread, baked with organic flour. For a bright and beaming start to the day, eschew regular routines of Greco-Roman snowman wrestling for a double shot of espresso ($1.65) paired with a multi-grain waffle and fresh blueberries ($6.49). Signature drinks from the juice bar harness sweet nectars from the fruits of Mother Nature's living room décor. Try a 16-ounce Jump Start, with grapefruit, apple, ginger, and spirulina ($4.25) or a 20-ounce Concerto, featuring a hot brew of grapes, pear, cloves, and apple ($5).
