Yesterday, for the first time in a long time, I went rock climbing! I went with my boyfriend as a fitness & fun date night, and we used a Groupon (my favorite).
Atlanta Rocks is a hidden gem in West Midtown, and we had such a great first experience with this rock climbing gym. We registered for an introductory course which included about an hour of instruction and an hour or more of climbing.
The gym has a great set up with lots of unique walls, some roof climbing options, and a boulder rock! They also have a "party room" space for events. I did make it to the very top on my first climb :)
Our instructor, Jason, was fantastic! He was very friendly, funny, and made the instruction portion interesting and fun. After his training, we had the climbing rules and belaying process down. If you go, see if he's available! I did a yoga class the day before this so my body was already a little tired. Climbing is such an intense activity and it really works all areas of your body. But, it's the kind of workout that doesn't seem like a workout when you're doing it, so I loved it!
We got to leave with a rope to practice our tying, and I thought that was the cutest souvenir! We can't wait to go back and rock climb again :)
Have you ever been rock climbing?
