It is often said that loose grips sink ships, especially when said ship is slathered in lard and held high in the sky by a curious, well-meaning giant. Find your footing in a relaxed, judgment-free environment with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-month membership to Tennessee Bouldering Authority (a $50 value).

As one of the first facilities in Chattanooga to offer indoor rock climbing and its rope-free cousin, bouldering, Tennessee Bouldering Authority gives climbers of all levels the chance to scale its nearly 3,000 square feet of challenging walls. Bouldering focuses on shorter climbs (typically around 10 feet high) riddled with gravity-defying angles that challenge harness-free climbers. In the event that a grip gets lost, boulderers experience a brief descent into safe, deep padding below. By climbing to membership heights, visitors recieve a 25% discount on climbing shoe purchases (valid through this deal's expiration date) and unlimited access to TBA's lounge and training spaces during normal business hours. Though not included in this deal, TBA does offer yoga, personal training, and individual climbing lessons with dedicated staffers that laugh in the face of boulders, especially presidential ones.

Tennessee Bouldering Authority

Tennessee Bouldering Authority's staff design climbing paths that pose physical and mental challenges across nearly 3,000 square feet of rock-climbing space. The team upholds a philosophy centered entirely around bouldering, a discipline that allows climbers to move unencumbered by belay systems and unbidden visions of their rope turning into a snake. Meanwhile, away from the rock walls, guests in workout classes use weights, training boards, and gymnastic rings to add some diversity to their exercise sessions. Energetic music blasts from a sound system during yoga classes, while climbers yodel their own workout beats from the climbing wall.

The staff are the friendliest people you'll meet and the setters are incredible. Best training gym in the south.

Great atmosphere and employees. My boyfriend and I are super beginners but we were welcomed. Easy to get to as well. Definitely want to go back.
