CONGRATULATIONS to our own David Hall (Pilates Director) and Doreen Hall (Director of Physical Therapy) for publishing an article in the Journal of Sports Science entitled "Climbing-Specific Fitness Profiles and Determinants of Performance in Youth Rock Climbers."

Rock climbers are continually seeking to improve their training and performance. This is especially important with the addition of the sport to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The purpose of the research paper was to evaluate climbing-specific fitness and establish percentile rankings among youth climbers, and to determine the relationship between fitness and climbing performance. Additional authors of the article include Jeanne Nichols, David Wing, Zachary Bellicini, Rosie Bates, Mark Kattus, and Jian Shen.
