The Stronghold Climbing Gym is all about options?and, of course, climbing. The gym offers a slew of programs for beginners on through mountain goats, and even the 45'-tall roped climbing wall gives folks a choice of hundreds of routes. For example, the intro to climbing class introduces how to climb safely with a top-rope, and the lead climbing class teaches more advanced climbers how to climb and belay on the "sharp end" of the rope. Indoor adventurers can choose from rope climbing and bouldering, or jump into classes with instructors that help climbers keep their bodies in peak physical condition. Core-focused classes and yoga keep physiques limber, while other fun activities like slack-lining help to improve balance or a career as a double-dutch referee. Classes are open to climbers of all ages, and even kids can boost their climbing skills and athleticism.

They?ve stocked the gym with strength and cardio machines, as well as functional training tools including BOSU balls, resistance bands, and more.

After their workouts, ladies can hit a locker room that?s outfitted with a plasma TV, hair-dryers, and other amenities in addition to the standard showers and lockers that double as portals to fantasy realms.
Although the workouts at Valley Crossfit are designed to be challenging, they can be scaled for participants of any fitness level. Adding to the engagement, the trainers constantly mix up class activities. On any given day, members might find themselves swinging kettlebells, tossing medicine balls, or using rowing machines to reenact Titanic's riveting canoe-race scene. Although group exercise is the core of the CrossFit program, coaches can also tailor the workouts even further during personal-training sessions.
Valley stages the group and private workouts at its 15,000-square-foot facility in Van Nuys and its new 3,000-square-foot facility in Reseda. Highlights of the larger gym include 6-foot obstacle walls, seven climbing ropes, a 1,600-square-foot pro gymnastics floor, and a 48-foot-long pull-up and monkey-bar structure.
