Combat the Rainy-Day Blues

Rainy days are very common along Florida’s Emerald Coast. Rock Out Climbing Gym is the perfect place to escape the bad weather. Whether you are on a beach vacation or are a local that needs to get the kids out of the house, we have climbing options for everyone. Don’t let a little rain ruin the day. Come experience a unique and memorable adventure at the finest climbing gym on the Emerald Coast.  

Escape the Hot Weather

It’s no secret that Florida summers are hot and humid. While many people love Florida’s Emerald Coast because it is the perfect place to soak up the sun, we all need a break from the heat. Look at the sweltering days as the perfect opportunity to escape to your local air-conditioned climbing gym to get a good workout in!  Forget about waiting for a tube at the waterpark or in line for a go cart standing in the heat, come inside and climb!

Challenge Yourself

Families are always looking for something new to do with the children when summer rolls around. Because we’re the very first indoor rock climbing gym in the area, chances are you aren’t familiar with our offerings. We allow locals and visitors to get out of their comfort zone and experience a challenging new adventure. If you are already an experienced climber, we’ve still got you covered with our challenging terrain and routes! We have a variety of offerings based on difficulty levels and we change our climbing courses weekly.

Be Social

Our climbing gym is the ultimate place for those looking to join an active community. In addition to our everyday social atmosphere, we offer ongoing events to help foster relationships between like-minded individuals. For example, we offer an adult bouldering league and monthly meet-ups for a women’s climbing circle. If you’re looking to make a few new friends this summer, joining our climbing community is a great place to start.

Exercise - No Excuses

Climbing is not only a fun experience, it’s a great, unique way to exercise! Developing a consistent workout routine while dodging the hot and rainy Florida summer days can be a challenge. Our indoor facilities are the perfect location for you to work out regularly no matter the external conditions. We offer 750 sq. ft. of fitness area with a range of machines and weights all included with your day pass. 

Rock Out Member Boulder League (R.O.M.B.L.)

Why You Should Join Rock Out’s Adult Bouldering League

Climbing is more than a physical activity, it builds a community. People of all ages, skill-sets, and backgrounds can come together to learn and grow from each other. That being said, Rock Out offers an Adult Bouldering League. Below is a list of why this league might just be the perfect fit for you.

  • A climbing gym can be an overwhelming experience. Ripped people climbing sixteen foot walls can be daunting to enter alone. Joining a league provides an easy way to connect with others in the gym, and find that those skilled climbers are not as intimidating as they may seem.

  • While climbing is an independent sport, sharing and learning from others is an enriching experience. This sport becomes infinitely better the more people you share it with. Furthermore, support and encouragement in the gym often translates to all aspects of life.

  • If you are a new climber, this whole world is a lot to learn on your own. All climbers know what it’s like to be new and inexperienced, so joining a league gives you a place to start with a community who understands what it’s like to be in your (climbing) shoes.

Joining a league ultimately breaks down the walls we create between each other. If you want to take climbing to the next level, we highly encourage you check out our six week long Adult Bouldering League! (Check out more information on how to get plugged in.)

Rock Out Youth Program

Benefits of Joining the Youth Program

Climbing can be an exciting way for kids to expel energy and connect with each other. Climbing builds muscle and mental focus, both great things to teach from a young age. Listed below is why we think our Youth Program is beneficial for any kid aged 9 to 17.

  • Studies show that kids need a healthy form of physical activity. Climbing is a unique way for kids to be active and is an enjoyable exercise they will look forward to every week.

  • Since we have two groups (9-12 and 13-17), our Youth Program can help kids connect with others in their age group. This program is not through a school, so kids can befriend others they might never have encountered. Coming together with a common interest as awesome as climbing is sure to create supportive and fun friendships.

  • It can be a great alternative for kids who don’t prefer traditional team sports. Climbing is an individual sport, but our program allows like-minded kids to work together to reach their individual goals.

  • Learning this skill at a young age might spark an interest to last a lifetime since a passion for climbing is not hindered by age. On top of that, they can look up to adults for inspiration on where the sport can take them.

When push comes to shove, climbing is just plain fun! Who wouldn’t want to climb rocks with a group of friends? If interested, check out our events page to sign up!
