See Detroit from 50 stories up, join the Penobscot Friday Climb


You don’t have to live near a mountain to hike to great heights and stare out at creation … not with the urban equivalent so readily available.

at the topAnytime Fitness Detroit will lead a 50-story trek up the Penobscot Building at 645 Griswold Street every Friday this spring and summer.

It all begins March 20 with the inaugural Penobscot Friday Climb up the metropolitan answer to the mountain.  Meeting every Friday at 12:00 pm, interested parties will be guided up by certified personal trainers.

“With the recent news that Penobscot building’s ownership is committed to reopening its observation deck we hope that Penobscot Friday Climb will give Detroiters a sneak peak of the breathtaking rooftop view. The cost of admission is a 50-story stair climb with a personal trainer,” said Dakota Shayne, general manager of Anytime Fitness Detroit. “Sometimes you have to take fitness outside of the gym to keep it fun. Penobscot Friday Climb is a great opportunity to do so.”
