The Stronghold Climbing Gym is all about options?and, of course, climbing. The gym offers a slew of programs for beginners on through mountain goats, and even the 45'-tall roped climbing wall gives folks a choice of hundreds of routes. For example, the intro to climbing class introduces how to climb safely with a top-rope, and the lead climbing class teaches more advanced climbers how to climb and belay on the "sharp end" of the rope. Indoor adventurers can choose from rope climbing and bouldering, or jump into classes with instructors that help climbers keep their bodies in peak physical condition. Core-focused classes and yoga keep physiques limber, while other fun activities like slack-lining help to improve balance or a career as a double-dutch referee.
Classes are open to climbers of all ages, and even kids can boost their climbing skills and athleticism.
Many gyms feel industrial, but with bright hardwood flooring and cream-colored walls, Tenacity Women?s Fitness is a breath of fresh air. The staff?s mission is to differ from chain gyms by being a positive place where women feel welcomed into a friendly, more personal environment, but still have everything they need to reach their goals. They?ve stocked the gym with strength and cardio machines, as well as functional training tools including BOSU balls, resistance bands, and more. Circuit Training classes help groups jump-start their fitness regimens, and personal trainers design programs tailored toward their clients? individual goals and incorporate nutritional advice.
After their workouts, ladies can hit a locker room that?s outfitted with a plasma TV, hair-dryers, and other amenities in addition to the standard showers and lockers that double as portals to fantasy realms.
