Video From Footloose 2019

Last month was our 80’s themed campus competition, the sends were super sick, exceptionally gnarly, and totally out of this world! (Is that enough 80’s slang?) Check out this wicked recap video from our Footloose Campus Competition!

Thanks to Tariq Lea for filming and editing!

Try something new with TRX!

Try something new with TRX!

When it comes to fitness nowadays, there are plenty of newfangled machines you can buy to get you fit - row machines, stationary bikes, even the Shake Weight promises you results in 3 short payments of $19.95*. (*Editor's note: I have no idea how much the Shake Weight actually costs - you can dispute this with me if you want, then you'd have to admit you actually bought one of these things ... ) But who would have thought that it takes nothing more than two straps and your own body weight to whip you into shape? TRX, the latest addition to Summit's fitness class offerings, is a full-body workout that's quick to learn and a lot of fun — you won't realize you're even working out until you're crazy sore the next day.

Meet Your Manager - Scott Lawrence, GM of Summit Dallas

In our effort to introduce you to EVERYONE EVER at Summit, meet Scott Lawrence, the new GM of Summit Dallas! Since current GM Alex Francis is moving to Colorado soon, we had Scott step in at the helm of Dallas! He has been around the gyms for awhile, so you Grapevine folks might recognize him! He's quite the party thrower and a really nice guy, so here is more about Scott!

Meet your Staff: Jarrett Chatman, one of the longest-standing Summit Dallas employees

Meet your Staff: Jarrett Chatman, one of the longest-standing Summit Dallas employees

Jarrett's been working at Summit Dallas before it was even Summit Dallas! Lucky for us he stuck around after Summit bought Dallas Rocks and turned it into Summit Dallas. He is a super enthusiastic guy, that can always be spotted doing something active - he runs and parkours before his shifts, and can often be seen bouncing a soccer ball behind the desk. Even on his off-days, his favorite thing to do is play basketball video games, because even in his leisure time he's gotta be competing or participating in something. 

SBS Comp #2 at Summit Dallas: final rankings and photos galore

t was a very full house last Friday night during our second Summit Bouldering Series competition of the season, at Summit Dallas! We nearly floated five kegs (totally nuts, you guys) and had an exciting finale round on Big Tex, with Dallas climber Tanner Merkle and Arizona climber Mary Fox both flashing their final problems for the win in men's and women's! We've got final placements posted and hella photos, so take a look and see how ya did, and how ya looked doing it! Hint: you looked good.

Know Your Manager: Chris Curry, General Manager of Summit Dallas

He's a bad-a$$ rock climber, an awesome slack-liner, and now a new dad — he's Chris Curry, the GM of Summit Dallas. He and his wife Raili both work with us here at Summit, and they just welcomed their baby girl Koa in January, so it's safe to say that Chris is a pretty busy guy. But he took the time to sit down with me, so the rest of you can better know the ultra-nice, curly-headed guy throwing you beta at Summit Dallas.
