Parking in Rockville can be a bit tight.  But other local businesses have offered their lots for us.  The high school across the street should be available, as they are not hosting any activities that day.  The Sandy Spring Bank is available after 12pm.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

The Road Fitness Program is open for registration. Check out the video for a sneak peak of this Earth Treks Fitness Program! >

We have a new video giving a sneak peak into what goes into the Road, one of Earth Treks Fitness Programs.

The Road is meant to give participants a strong physical-training edge to their climbing. This is a no-joke course that will be physically demanding regardless of your level of fitness. It is intended to become a part of a climber’s regular routine of fitness training throughout the year.

Many routines will be body-weight routines. Other routines may employ “unconventional” methods of resistance outside the scope of what a “regular” gym can offer. As an example, during a session participants could be expected to do a set of chin-ups, swing a sledgehammer and then drag a 250lb tire.

All workouts will be geared towards helping participants realize climbing-specific physical goals. In addition to the workouts, participants will receive additional “homework” assignments and/or specific nutritional recommendations.
