What is FTR up to this month?  Take a minute to find out...you won't want to miss it!
Start Monkeying Around!
Join us for an hour of playtime on our climbing wall! Bring your animal spirit on
Saturday mornings after Bootcamp from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. and swing from our brightly colored bouldering routes. They were put up by the skilled route setters from Momentum Climbing gym, and you are promised a thrilling challenge.  All skill levels are encouraged. Bring your courage and strength for a safe and joyful introduction to rock climbing. Thanks again to Petzl Foundation
for making our wall a reality.  

Look for upcoming Rock Challenges from local "ninja" Marci Warner.  Including a trip into the mountains to tackle sun kissed granite walls, and a contest of climbing through the levels to scale the hardest routes on our wall.

Spotlight: Parker J. Burns

We are stoked to have a new dynamic personality in the gym.  Parker is an experienced athletic trainer and an important new member of the trainer team. He studied Exercise and Sport Science at the University of Utah and has worked with many local gyms in the Salt Lake Valley.  

He is quick to strike up a conversation with a bright smile, and quickly felt right at home in the FTR community.  He understands how to make people feel confident and strong in the gym. Welcome Parker!

Too often, we only see the face of addiction in the faces of those in recovery. In fact, our community is made up of accomplished, multi-faceted individuals. We've  added a page on our website to profile our FTR members through a different lens -- their own words and creative endeavors.

Meet Sarah, Josh, and Rachel and see three more reasons why we are so proud of our community.
