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.

ARC is Sudbury’s Premiere Climbing and Yoga and Fitness Facility.  ARC features over 7000 sq.

Sudbury is the gateway to Northern Ontario and only a short drive to countless provincial and national parks, the Great Lakes (Georgian Bay), and Manitoulin, the world’s largest freshwater island.  With more than 300 lakes within the city itself, local hiking/biking trails and an established and expanding local crag development scene (www.climbsudbury.com), Sudbury provides outdoor enthusiasts with the opportunity to live close to nature while enjoying the amenities of a smaller city. The city also has numerous post-secondary educational institutions, and a revitalized arts community and downtown core.

 

Working at ARC requires leadership, a positive attitude, great work ethic, adaptability, teamwork, and a commitment to making ARC the most enjoyable experience for our members, guests and the rest of the team.  At ARC we aim to provide a fun, safe and challenging environment where people can discover their strengths, continually redefine their boundaries and conquer their fears.
