Reach Your Peak Climbing Fitness Program
Mar 29 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Reach Your Peak (RYP) is an eight-week climbing fitness training program that utilizes a combination of roped climbing and bouldering (non-roped climbing) for climbers to improve their skills and reach their personal fitness goals.The program was developed utilizing auto-belay devices for the roped climbing components, so no need to have a climbing partner.
Any level of climber can participate! Improve your overall health, improve endurance, and strengthen already existing skill-sets. Of course, there are other unintended side effects that have been seen from following this program:

Healthy weight-loss
Overall feeling of increased “coolness”
New-found or renewed passion for climbing
Increased popularity
Less tired and sluggish at work
Better nights of sleep

Each weekly session will also have additional workouts or “homework” that will require you to make additional visits to the gym before you start the next program week. We recommend that participants are members of the gym for the duration of the 8 week program.

Click HERE to sign up.

No additional cost to participate over regular admission to the gym or gym membership.You can either go it alone or participate as a group in our RYP work-out sessions. Our staff will be available during the organized sessions to answer questions, give support, or help guide technique.
