One of the largest communities of rock climbing gyms in the nation, Movement, is opening a new location in our neighborhood.

It opens in The Hill near Walnut Hill and Central Expressway on Oct. 9 at 10 a.m. The new facility offers indoor climbing, a gear shop, a boutique-style yoga studio, and multi-level cardio and weight areas. Throughout the facility, there are many couches and other sitting areas with a massive outdoor patio for people to socialize and play yard games. Also  next to almost every area, there are community boards showcasing what is happening in surrounding areas.

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

“We are stoked 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, Movement’s director. “There is a sense of community within the gym itself, it’s not just doing your activity and leave, with your membership you also get a community that cares about you and your progress that you can spend time socializing with after your workout.”

Movement The Hill is also offering a special pre-opening membership promotion, where members who register before the grand opening will get access to the gym a day early on Oct. 8. On Oct. 23, the gym will have its grand opening party, featuring free climbing sessions, raffles for prizes, and more.
