ClimbFit - Fitness through Climbing
Looking for a great fitness alternative for your students? Look no further. ClimbFit is it!
Besides being an exciting form of recreation, climbing is a great way for anyone to start achieving their fitness goals (see the large number of climbers and boulderers on American Ninja Warrior as an example). VIRG's ClimbFit program has been designed to show students how bouldering can be used as a means of power and endurance training.
With many schools adding fitness classes or fitness components to current phys-ed programs, the ClimbFit program is a great way to show the diversity of training options for students and to have fun doing it!

*minimum charge of $180.
