Rock Out Climbing Gym

For some of the thrills of climbing challenging summits, practice indoors at Rock Out Climbing Gym. It's a bouldering gym, which means that the climbing stations aren't as high, and there are no ropes or harnesses. But don't worry if you've never tried climbing before. It's fun for everyone, whether you're a seasoned climber or a newbie.

Staff will guide you on a course fit for your experience level and comfort. The gym offers day passes, punch cards, group rates, and regular membership options.

Pure Barre

Another invigorating workout choice is stopping by Pure Barre. This carefully planned group workout gets all your muscles working and your heart beating. Best of all, it's low impact, so it's a good choice for many people. You'll use the barre, hand or leg weights, free weights, or resistance to stretch and tone.

Take the free intro class when you want to see if the workout is for you. Most classes, including the intro, are 50 minutes or under. When it's your cheat day from fitness in Destin, indulge in treats from local donut shops. You'll find some of the best near Olympus Emerald Coast.
