Hello Denver Climbers,

I am new to Denver and looking for a Mountain Athlete type gym to complement my weekend warrior status in the Alpine. I am very surprised that there is not a full service gym in Denver (Climbing + Fitness). I do know of ATC and others in Boulder but with weekday work, that would not be a doable commute. I feel like crossfit is just too general, or am i wrong? Also looking for a little community. Where do you go to train for fitness?

There is not one that I know of. I drive up to the ATC before ski/ice season and have searched around looking for something in Denver without finding anything. In my experience there is a lot of variation in crossfit gyms, some focus on longer more MAish workouts and some focus more on olympic lifting. May be worth going to a couple and seeing what they offer (and ask if you can bring ice tools in).

I've been on this program for a few months now and am seeing some great results:

Jon, that video is seriously disturbing (yet hilarious). I think I've found my costume for Halloween this year.

BrianD--you might consider the 'Road' training program at Earthtreks in Golden. They train for an hour 3x a week for 3 months doing strength training specifically for climbing. Everyone I know who's in it is absolutely exhausted afterwards and it's helped their endurance for climbing tremendously. Great program, and seriously cheap for intense personal training in a small group setting.
