“We’re thrilled to join Station Square with FA’s first location in Pittsburgh,” said Jon Shepard, FA co-founder and director of business development. “We believe in creating spaces that inspire and connect people, and we now our members and guests will appreciate Station Square’s amenities, with unique dining, entertainment, easy accessibility and parking. We’re excited to introduce you to our unique blend of fitness and fun and show Pittsburgh an unforgettable climbing experience.”

The Station Square gym, FA’s first in Pittsburgh, will offer beginners and experienced climbers alike the world-class climbing experience that FA is known for, with a full range of bouldering terrain and features to help climbers of all ability levels explore a wide variety of climbing styles.

In addition to climbing walls, FA Station Square will offer a one-stop shop for all your fitness needs, including a full fitness gym and yoga program, locker rooms with showers and key code lockers, and a climbing gear pro shop.

“We’re on a mission to share our love of climbing with everyone, and I’d say what really makes us stand out is the atmosphere we work to create for our members and guests,” said Dan Bartz, co-founder and marketing director for FA. “We craft spaces where all are welcome to experience adventure, explore movement, connect with others, and have fun. Best of all, anybody can enjoy climbing, no matter your age or ability level. Climbers as young as 3 and as old as 75 climb regularly at FA gyms, and climbing is an activity you can enjoy as a family, with friends, alongside your spouse or significant other, and with people you just met at the gym.”
