Climb on Over To L'Escalade Fitness in Lexington KY
Rock climbing enthusiasts drive for hundreds of miles to experience the natural cliffs at nearby Red River Gorge. But did you know that there is a local indoor climbing venue called L’Escalade Fitness in Lexington Ky?
This specialty gym offers something for everyone, from the beginning climber to the passionate enthusiast. There are indoor climbing walls up to 50 feet in height, huge padded rocks with which to practice “bouldering” (scaling them without the aid of ropes), and regular classes teaching the finer points of the sport such as belay and top rope. Group fitness classes include cycling, circuit training, and yoga.
L’Escalade is on North Broadway inside New Circle Road. This area of town is ideal for first time homeowners, as well as commuters. The I-75/I-64 interchange is about five minutes away, as is downtown. This area is also close to the ballpark, and the established and very hip West Sixth Brewing entertainment district of bars, restaurants and nightlife. Homes for sale within a half mile of L’Escalade Fitness in Lexington Ky range from $62,500 to $335,000 and can be found in the Elsmere Park, Meadows and Broadview neighborhoods as well as Downtown.

By the way, the gym owners had been driving long distance on a regular basis to climb the Gorge. A couple years ago they decided Lexington would be the perfect place to live, raise a family – and start a unique climbing business. If you are planning on moving to Lexington as well – call me!
