Hi, my name is Yuka, and I am an AMGA-certified Climbing Wall Instructor. I was "hooked" on rock climbing the first day I climbed the wall at the Fitness Center over two years ago. I love climbing because of the physical and coordination challenges of the various routes on the way to the top. I have also made many good friends here, who enjoy the climbing wall as much as I do. Could be you are the next one to get "hooked" on climbing? In addition to climbing, I also teach group fitness classes in the aerobic studios, including Kickboxing, Body Sculpt and Senior Chair Strength class. If you see me at The Center, please feel free to say hi!
Hi, I’m Ron, and I’m an AMGA-certified Climbing Wall Instructor. I started rock climbing over 40 years ago and have climbed in the Utah Canyonlands, Colorado and the Niagara Escarpment. When I began coming to The Center a few years ago, I discovered its great indoor climbing wall. Now I enjoy being a Climbing Wall Instructor for The Center and a part-time guide for adventure scrambling in the Utah Canyonlands. The Center's climbing wall is the best community-oriented climbing wall in Michigan! Come check it out, and we’ll give you lessons. Remember, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it" - Yogi Berra.
