Phoenix Gym and Rock Climbing

A proudly woman-owned gym, Phoenix Gym and Rock Climbing is where you go if you want to shape your body and your mind. Providing you with the best fitness programming, the trainers all have fun nicknames, so you can pick your fighter (although, to start with, we’d recommend going with Hala “The Peaceful”). Facilities include a sauna, steam room, kickboxing studio, pilates studio, an indoor cycling studio, and more.
