When you think “workout”, typically a gym comes to mind. It’s complete with weight racks, treadmills, and a group fitness studio, right?

Now, reimagine your workout. Chalky hands, adrenaline pumping, your body burning, and your mind turning like you’re solving a puzzle. Yes. We’re talking about indoor rock climbing.

And it’s time you got to know Downtown Boston’s first climbing gym.

CLIMB TO NEW HEIGHTS

Central Rock Gym—CRG for short—opens a Boston location in early March 2019, right in the heart of the city on 101 Beverly St. This newest Central Rock Gym is joining over 10 locations, and the popular climbing space is growing fast.

The space boasts 5,000 square feet of climbing terrain, 150 bouldering routes, and a weights and cardio fitness room. You can expect daily classes, work and lounge spaces with free Wi-Fi, and certified climbing and personal training instruction. This is a climbing experience you’ll have to check out yourself to believe. Maybe even during your lunch break.

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Central Rock Gym was started by two brothers back in 2009. They opened the first location in Worcester with the goal of serving their community through social and physical aspects of climbing. Since then, CRG has taken over the Northeast with several locations and more in the works.

You get more than just a climbing experience at CRG. It also hosts competitions every year, is part of non-profit organizations that give back and support local communities, runs programs to expose people to the sport of climbing, and stays ahead of the industry with new climbing inventory and climbing routes, set weekly.

BE PART OF IT ALL

Excited to check out CRG? We are, too. Check out all the options for membership rates and perks, where you can choose from adult memberships, discounted membership, family memberships, or fitness-only memberships — there’s something for everyone.

Not ready to commit yet? Then a Day Pass will be perfect for you. Plus, you can rent the gear you need to climb, so all you have to do is show up.

And if your day downtown doesn’t go as planned—meetings, traffic, etc.—know your membership here is also good for the six other Boston area gyms. But how much more fun is it to imagine you’re climbing skyscrapers?
