“Climb for a Cause”: Saturday, March 1, 2014 – 5pm to 8pm – at Edgeworks

Edgeworks is proud to partner with FIRST DESCENTS again this year for the 5th Annual Climb-A-Thon “Climb for a Cause”. This is a nationwide event taking place in 16 gyms across the country, including Edgeworks. The goal is to raise as much money, awareness, and enthusiasm as we can for the mission of First Descents.

What is their mission? FIRST DESCENTS offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors a free outdoor adventure experience designed to empower them to climb, paddle and surf beyond their diagnosis, defy their cancer, reclaim their lives and connect with others doing the same. More information available here.

Your $25 donation to FIRST DESCENTS gets you entry to the gym, equipment rental, an FD t-shirt, and access to climbing for the duration of the event.

Crushing Tip #23

How-to-buy-your-first-climbing-shoe1

Wear better shoes

by: Marissa Lyons

There are a lot of ways to climb better, faster and stronger, but one thing that improves climbing without any training is a good pair of shoes!

Beginners typically choose loose-fitting comfortable shoes. But no matter what grade you climb, I recommend you get a high-end pair of shoes that are snug , but not miserably tight. Higher end shoes give you much more precision, and do a better job of allowing you to use all parts of your foot. This is the one and only piece of gear that can actually make a difference in your climbing! Get the best fitting pair of high-end shoes you can find!

Here is a detailed article on how to pick out your first pair of climbing shoes.

Also, for more information on shoes and gear, check out our Tuesday Night Clinic on February 18th with our in-house staff gear guru, Mike Dove, and our friends from Petzl.

Monday Night Strength Class

weights

This new class was recently added to the Monday evening, 7:10 pm, time slot of our Fitness Schedule but if you’re at all like me, you’ve asked yourself, “What exactly is the Strength class all about?”

Stated best by Marissa, our Strength fitness instructor, this class is a cross between Pilates and Bootcamp. The classes are constructed of 20 minutes of mobility exercises, focused on stretching and core strengthening, followed by 30 minutes of high intensity intervals using anything from free weights to kettlebells to weighted balls.

It’s a great class for developing core strength and increasing metabolism, plus it’s only 50 minutes!  Give it try – Monday evenings from 7:10 – 8:00 pm.

Boy Scout Climbing Event
