What You'll Get
The road less traveled is often the more fulfilling one, especially when it bypasses Robert Frost's tiger pits. Diverge from a rote route with today's Groupon: for $18, you get two rock-climbing day passes with equipment rental and gym access at Stronghold Gym (a $36 value). This Groupon can be used as a two-day pass for one person or a one-day pass for two.
Inside Stronghold Gym body buffs sculpt muscles and prepare for Everest with a 45-foot climbing tower, two bouldering caves, and sweat-inducing fitness classes. With the all-access day pass, wall clingers scale the 45-foot tower, adhering to color-coded routes with escalating difficulty, and two bouldering caves let patrons live out bat fantasies or attempt the intricate moves of inverted climbing. On weekday evenings and weekend afternoons, one of Stronghold's trained belayers hoists climbers through the gravity-defying ascents. After spending time at higher altitudes, guests flex their guns at Stronghold's free weight-training center, where muscle-building machinery and cardio equipment jostle for attention. Throughout either of the days, participants cram as many fitness classes as they can into their schedule, meeting people and finding fodder for friendship journals in yoga, Zumba, and aikido sessions.
