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). MGasell

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.

Any luck finding a gym? I just moved to Denver and am in the same boat. Shocker given the fitness and outdoor interest of Denver residents.

Let me know of you have any guidance.

I know there was a ka-bosh put on group work out sessions, but have seen some underground stuff going on that is interesting at the red rock amphitheater. Also some great trail runs out in the southwest corner of Denver, other side of Ken Caryl valley - Deer creek canyon park on the other side of the ridge. Good runs and trails up waterton canyon just past the chatfield res. too. Klimbien

Hey I know this is an old thread but I run a gym in southeast Denver called Axistence Athletics. We have been around for a little over a year and gear all of our programming towards "Forging the Adventure Athlete". We are a crossfit affiliate but since I've been following Rob Shaul for the last 5 years, there is a heavy influence from Mountain Athlete. We are in the process of finishing our bouldering/system boards, but are already more than ready to meet your training needs. We cycle our programming between, winter sports prep, crossfit open season, summer adventure prep and obstacle course racing season. Let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to stop on by, Dan Jimenez
