High Altitude Fitness
Truckee, California

Specs: Elaborate 26,000-square-foot facility will feature bouldering and roped climbing, along with a weight room, a functional fitness room, a yoga studio, a group fitness studio, a cycling studio, and other rooms separated by glass walls. The exterior of the gym will offer an “outdoor fitness area” as well. Childcare will be offered for customers using the various indoor and outdoor accouterments.


As it currently stands, the Truckee gym is the result of six years of planning, according to co-owner Jason Burd, who also owns a High Altitude Fitness facility in Incline Village, Nevada. Unlike the Nevada gym, which was remodeled and repurposed, the new Truckee gym has been designed “from scratch”—and ground was finally broken for the gym on July 8th.

Jason Burd has been working on getting construction of the Truckee facility started while his wife, Gabi Burd, has handled the day-to-day operations at the Nevada gym. A press release noted that members will have access to both facilities. The release also noted that High Altitude Fitness, as a brand, offers summer camps, after-school programs and a competitive climbing team.

In Their Words: “I take great pride in building a facility like this in a ski town like Truckee. After living in the Tahoe area full time for the last 16 years, I now run this business with my wife, Gabi Burd. Together we have lived in the mountains for over 40 years. The Truckee facility will focus on providing fitness for all types of mountain athletes, families in this community, youth, anyone who chooses health and wellness as a part of their lifestyle.”
