Self-Care for Climbers

Overuse injuries are common among climbers and have been experienced by most climbers during their career. They build slowly and are notoriously difficult to treat. When these injuries persist, you can't stay at the top of your game. This 90-minute educational course focuses on myofascial release*, self-massage techniques, and targeted stretches to relieve and prevent common climbing aches and pains. Classes take place the last week of each month.

*Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. When the fascia is released, the musco-skeletal system can be realigned, improving health and promoting well-being.

Bouldering for Endurance

Forearms pumped? Out of breath? Can’t hang on any longer? 

It's a little-known fact that many of the world's most elite climbers train exclusively on small bouldering walls. Bouldering is not just for power. Endurance can be trained quickly and effectively using structured bouldering programs. Learn what you need to do in this 90-minute training course. The class will meet on Mondays for five weeks at the Tigard gym beginning June 29th and includes a 30-minute pre-course consultation to tailor your training. Recommended for intermediate to advanced climbers V4 and up.
