What is First Ascent Anywhere?

We created First Ascent Anywhere to keep us moving together while circumstances keep us from being together at First Ascent gyms.

We’ve got a full schedule live-streamed classes hosted on Facebook Live with some of your favorite FA instructors to get you flowing, sweating, and making gains wherever you are. Classes are available to join live, or you can watch each session after it’s finished anytime, anywhere – no Facebook account required.

All First Ascent Anywhere classes are designed to be done wherever you are – no specialized equipment required.

Here’s the upcoming schedule of classes:

All times are in the Central Standard timezone.

And if you can’t join a class live, no problem – you can access all previous class videos on Facebook!
