Before ropes, rock climbers mitigated the risk of a damaging fall with impressive strength, impeccable balance, and inflatable bouncy castles around the base of every mountain. Combine ancient technique and modern safety with today's Groupon to T-3 Health and Fitness in Cooper City. The gym's rock-climbing facilities are open by appointment only Monday–Friday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get four one-hour rock-climbing classes (a $100 value).

The experienced personal trainers at T-3 Health and Fitness help patrons bust stubborn flab and escape from weight-loss plateaus through rigorous training programs and inventive workout routines. During their one-hour rock-climbing lessons, instructors instill a healthy respect for safety in every student through lessons on proper belay and climbing techniques. Students older than 5 years of age can scale a 24-foot-high wall studded with color-coded holds that illustrate the challenge level of each route, ascending on a personally tailored mission to improve strength, challenge coordination, and fine-tune mountain-goat impersonations.
T-3 Health and Fitness’s personal-training sessions individualize workout regimens to suit customers of any ability level who are at least 8 years old. With decades of combined experience, the gym’s expert body sculptors build good workout habits, molding physiques with positive reinforcement and molding minds with dumbbells made from encyclopedias. Workout plans vary based on the trainer, with possible regimens including TRX, an exercise sequence designed to tone bodies by pitting body weight against gravity for increased resistance.
A championship wrestler by the age of 10, Xcelerate Training owner Craig Marks developed a commitment to exercise early on, leading to a wrestling scholarship and national ranking as a college wrestler. Though a serious neck injury cut his wrestling career short, Craig has remained loyal to his fitness pursuits for more than 20 years, now helping others achieve their goals by designing personalized workouts based on his workout philosophy that combines muscular training, nervous-system training, cardio, and balanced nutrition.
This philosophy comes to life within Xcelerate Training's facility, where Craig and his staff of trainers steer fitness seekers to healthier bodies during both private and group training sessions. The Xcelerate team's creative style incorporates unique props and workouts that take place on an indoor stairway to help burn calories. A 24-foot rock-climbing wall adds a vertical dimension to workouts, as well as birthday parties and corporate mixers for mountain goats.
