Bang for your buck - why TRX classes are just another benefit of being a member at Summit

Bang for your buck - why TRX classes are just another benefit of being a member at Summit

Here at Summit we pride ourselves in being more than just climbing gyms — we're yoga studios, workout spaces, and fitness class providers. We recently branched out our fitness classes to include TRX suspension training classes, and we're very excited to be expanding our TRX classes, with more class types and times. If you haven't tried one of our TRX classes, yet, here is a bit more about the classes, and their benefits for your climbing, and your overall fitness. 

How Life has Improved Since I Became a Climber: a not-so-serious look at the serious everyday life benefits of being a climber

Because climbers are a group that can notoriously laugh at ourselves, this week's blog post is sometimes subtle, but mostly not, nod to all the ways our lives have improved since we started rock climbing! Everyday tasks that were previously hard, are now simple thanks to our climber ingenuity / inhuman strength / alarming lack of patience / inability to give a crap. So how many of these things can you relate to?

Meet your Routesetter / Coach: Ellis Whitson, Summit routesetter and coach for Team Texas

I know you guys have definitely seen him around, since between coaching and routesetting, Ellis is basically at one gym or another ALL THE TIME. He's a busy guy for sure, but always worth chatting with for a moment, even if it's to just get some beta from him. He's one of those guys whose beta always works, even when you insist it won't. HE ALWAYS KNOW BETTER! 

Know Your Manager: Mackenzie Wilson, now the GM of Summit Grapevine

She's been a GM of two gyms now, but she is also the GM that has been with the company for the least amount of time. She is also the source of GIRL POWER within the company (excluding myself, but I barely count because I am fairly "unfeminine," we'll say). She came to us fresh from working the climbing wall at TCU, and you probably know her as the bubbly chatterbox that is always at the gym — either working, climbing, or getting in her fitness at Climb Fit. Here's the basics of this neat little lady, so yo can have yet another topic of conversation to have with her. Like you could ever run out of things to talk about with her, anyways.
