I have been working out at Stronghold off and on for over a year now and just signed up for a nine month contract. I don't like those kind of gyms that are merely social clubs and I also don't like meat lockers. Stronghold is a great combination of determined athletes and positive atmosphere. Oh and I really love the rock gym its the only real wall in Columbia.

I have climbed at Stronghold for about 2 years now and I have watched it steadily decline. The boulder rooms get more attention than the 40 foot climbing room. There has never been adequate heating, air conditioning or lighting in the 40 foot climbing room. There are routes in there that have been there for over a year, and the newest route was put up about 3 months ago. Someone noticed that a rope was looking unsafe and took it down and a month later still has not been replaced. There are spiderwebs on the anchors. One of the 2 light fixtures went out - it's been almost 2 weeks now. There's 30 foot scaffolding that's been sitting in there for almost a week. There used to be a little boom box that you could pop your CD into for some music while you climb, but even that has died and not been replaced. The people that work there are great, but the gym is just not well maintained. Sad.

Be careful. Carlos (the owner) assured me before I prepaid for my year membership that if I moved I would get a refund. Well going on 9 months since I moved to another state, 10 phone calls and numerous messages left, I got nothing. This is after a couple of years of working out there.

This is a great place to go if you're serious about lifting weights and aren't looking for a place to socialize. They don't have a juice bar or a nursery to take care of your kids. What they do have is a great selection of free weights. Many of the machines are older, but still give a great workout. The one caveat with them though is that their cardio machines need to seriously be upgraded.

This is a cool little gem of a gym off of Huger Street. It's not your typical meat market by any means. In fact, it's very casual, attracting a relaxed but serious group of folks. It even has one of the regions best indoor rock climbing facilities attached to the building. Good place to meet active outdoorsy folks.

PROS: Nice, clean, simple
CONS:
