If the outdoors are calling, High Point Expeditions can give you the skills you need to answer

You might have noticed we started carrying a lot of guidebooks in all our gear shops! We realize there is a lot more climbing out there than just at our gyms - so we want to encourage all our members to eventually make the leap from indoor climbing to outdoor climbing. There is a lot more involved in outdoor climbing than a waiver and an orientation, however — so what is the easiest way to become comfortable with climbing outside?

ClimbFit comes to Grapevine!

ClimbFit comes to Grapevine!

For anyone who climbs out of Grapevine wanting to take their climbing to the next level, we're very happy to announce that our ClimbFit program has recently taken up residence there! ClimbFit classes are held Mondays and Wednesdays, and combine strength and conditioning exercises with climbing drills to help you become a stronger, confident, more well-rounded climber. Plus, they're a lot of fun, and you get to participate with some pretty awesome folks! The ClimbFit instructors at Grapevine are Chris Hobbs and Dylin Worrell, two really psyched, but laid-back guys. They were both independently excited to start a ClimbFit class at Grapevine, so ClimbFit founder Mario put them both together, and they've been killin' it ever since! I sat down and talked with the two of them briefly, so y'all can hear a little bit more of their background / learn why they were chosen to lead the class!

Mario Stanley started ClimbFit five years ago, when Summit owner Kyle Clinkscales asked him to start a training program for adults. Mario - who was teaching Kids Club at our Dallas location at the time - tok the idea and ran with it.
