HOUSTON—A new gym in Spring wants people to reach for new heights when it comes to being fit.

Rock climbing, once considered an extreme sport, has gone mainstream.  Instructors at Texas’ newest and biggest rock climbing gym, Inspire Rock in Spring, say it’s a sport anyone can try. 

“Rock climbing is a full body workout,” said climbing instructor Cedric Colby.  “When they (participants) get to the top of the wall they’re drained both physically and they’re drained mentally.” 

Inspire Rock owner Paul Short agreed.

“Really the competition level is between you and yourself,” he said.

You can take it slow or rock out—whatever you’re inspired to do.
