The Best Rock Climbing Gyms Near Peoria

Have an Adventurous Workout at These Rock Climbing Gyms Near Peoria

A typical gym workout may not be your forte. A rock climbing gym, on the other hand, gives you a chance to engage in an adventurous activity. Because you’ll have so much fun, it won’t feel like a workout. Give one of the gyms near our Peoria apartments a try and see if it’s enjoyable for you. 

First Ascent Climbing & Fitness

First Ascent Climbing & Fitness offers courses for people of all skill levels. Whether you're an expert at rock climbing or just giving it a try for the first time, this facility will have what you need. Your first visit to this facility will include an expert showing you the ropes and giving you a tour of all there is to offer. The goal is to get you acclimated with the space, so you feel more at ease when you're ready to climb on your own.

Ape Index

There are regular operating hours, as well as member-only hours at Ape Index. You can either purchase a day pass to visit once, or buy a multi-visit pass if you plan on coming often. If you want private instruction on how to climb safely, that option is available at this gym. You can even come with a group for a team building exercise. Rock climbing is a great activity for building trust and utilizing communication skills. 

Black Rock Bouldering Gym 

Also nearby is Black Rock Bouldering Gym, though it's technically located in Phoenix. You're encouraged to take the Intro to Bouldering class, or opt for private instruction so you can get the hang of the movements necessary to make your way to the top. It will help you build your strength and endurance. Dynamic fitness classes and yoga are also offered here if you want to incorporate more options into your workout routine.
