Opening of a new climbing gym in The Hill, focused on community building

One of the largest climbing gym communities in the country, Movement, is opening a new location in our neighborhood.

It opens at The Hill near Walnut Hill and Central Expressway on October 9 at 10 a.m. The new facility offers indoor rock climbing, an equipment store, a boutique-style yoga studio, and multi-level cardio and strength-training areas. Throughout the facility there are plenty of sofas and other seating areas with a huge outdoor patio for people to socialize and play yard games. Additionally, next to almost every area there are community signs showcasing what is happening in the surrounding areas.

There will be free preview days for non-members from October 9-10. Staff will offer a variety of lessons for neighbors with all levels of climbing experience.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Dallas community to this facility and share the climbing journey with new faces in such a beautiful space surrounded by our favorite shops and restaurants,” said Matt Hopkins, director of Movement. “There is a sense of community within the gym itself, it’s not just about do your activity and go, with your membership you also get a community that cares about you and your progress with where you can spend time socializing after your workout.”

Movement The Hill is also running a special pre-opening membership promotion, where members who sign up before the grand opening will get access to the gym a day earlier on October 8th. On October 23, the gym will have its grand opening party, complete with free climbing sessions, raffles for prizes, and more.
