Strength & Mobility for climbers

This workshop series is built for climbers looking to stabilize and strengthen their bodies through traditional weight-training. Climbers can be known to skip proper strength training, instead focusing on climbing alone or climbing adjacent training such as hangboarding, campus-boarding, and pull-ups. This course will focus on proper form for strength training and why this is important. After taking this course, you will be a more well-rounded athlete and have the tools to prevent injuries from climbing.

Only available at the Hive North Shore.

Climb and Train / Rise and Climb

Start your day by joining one of Hive Heights’ most popular courses!

‘Rise and Climb’ and ‘Climb and Train’ are early morning training classes, designed by Anne-Marie Comte for climbers of all abilities.
Climbers can learn how to respond to climbing problems and challenges, persevere, and enjoy the blissfulness of moving on the rock. The goal is to give climbers as much technical and mental climbing knowledge as possible, working with them to reach their full potential.

*Waitlist FULL for Summer – keep an eye out for Winter registration!*
