About ARC

ARC is the hub of a growing climbing and yoga community in Northern Ontario. We’re way more than a gym, we’re a place where people get together, do what they love, and transform the way they move in a fun and social space.

 

ARC was founded in 2014 by a small group of young climbers from Sudbury. We wanted to create a facility where local climbers could train to compete across Canada or to prepare for climbing trips, but also a place where beginners could try climbing and yoga in a positive and motivating environment.

ARC Team

We believe in creating a place where we can all come together and do what we love. Our awesome team is here to help you transform the way you move.
