Incase you didn’t know, Buffalo is home to the ultimate rock-climbing and fitness facility. Central Rock Gym has taken Buffalo’s fitness scene to the next level, and you know we’re all about it. If you’re looking for a fun way to add some exercise to your daily routine, this is it.

The 22,000 square foot facility is comprised of climbing walls galore, yoga and fitness class space, a weight room with exercise equipment (cardio and free weights), a work and lounge space (w/ free WiFi), locker rooms with showers, and a climbing gear shop. This place is a total circus for fitness geeks. If you’re a Central Rock member, you have total access to all of the above daily.

Daily Climbing & Fitness Class Passes

If you’re not into the whole fitness lifestyle thing – no judgement here, you can grab a day pass to rock climb for $25 (plus rental gear). TBH, a daily pass to climb it out sounds like an ideal Saturday activity if you ask us – an admittedly 100% necessary break from our favorite hobby – restaurant hopping. 😉 If you’re a fan of trying out different classes, you can also join in on a fitness class for just $15 – all class options can be found on their website. Plus, if you already purchased a climbing day pass, fitness classes can be added for $5 that day.

What to Expect

If you’re a first-time climber, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Just show up in your ultra-comfy climbing clothes (aka NO jeans- you’ll regret it), and they’ll provide all of the essential climbing gear, which includes rental shoes- so we recommend wearing socks. You’ll begin on a special wall made just for beginners, where you’ll be trained by a pro on how to climb/fall/not die/etc. Then, you’ll advance to rope climbing, where your partner (or staff person- only on weekend days) belays and you climb away! There are also plenty of instructional courses for beginners to get you started. If you’re already a pro, you can climb like a free monkey- or receive more technical instruction in the advanced classes or by private lessons.

P.S. Rock climbing makes for a super fun day/night activity with friends, the fam or even your coworkers for a team-bonding day! May we also recommend this as a unique date idea?
