Movement offers more than an acre of climbing, yoga, and fitness to the active and creative community in Crystal City. This gym has more than 350 routes spread out on 35,000 square feet of climbing walls – ample space for every age and ability. We love helping new climbers learn and offer several introductory classes. In addition, we are a full-service gym with amenities like cardio equipment and weights, yoga studio, group fitness classes, expert instructors, and a fully-stocked gear shop.  We are just steps away from the Crystal City metro stop and part of The Crystal City Shops, which is home to a compilation of contemporary restaurants, celebrated chefs and cool cafes – all perfect for après climb.
