We’re excited to welcome The Cliffs members and guests as we bring together these two incredible communities.
Starting December 11th, all members of The Cliffs and Movement will enjoy expanded access to Movement locations across the nation!
This page is your go-to for staying informed. The Cliffs customers must fill out a new participant agreement on The Cliffs website (do not fill out a participant agreement on Movement’s website). The Cliffs website can also still be used for announcements, membership details, upcoming events, instruction, and other programming.
Come on in, and let’s climb together!
The Cliffs Member FAQ
Do I have to sign a new participant agreement?
Yes, please complete a new participant agreement via The Cliffs website by January 1st. Do not fill out a participant agreement on Movement’s website.
Will I be allowed access to all Movement locations and when does this start?
Yes! Starting December 11th, all The Cliffs members will have access to all Movement gyms and all Movement members will have access to all The Cliffs gyms!
What if I have a single gym membership?
Through 2023 your single facility access for The Cliffs will remain the same, plus it will include all Movement gyms across the nation. Starting January 1, 2024 all memberships will include access to all gyms! More info to come soon.
Need to submit a membership change request?
Please continue to submit membership requests via The Cliffs website until further notice. Navigate to your home gym’s page, use the membership menu, and select “edit membership”
What’s happening with my membership perks?
Your member perks will include guest passes, retail and class discounts, unlimited group yoga and fitness classes—and access to every Movement gym across the country!
We’ll be aligning membership perks in mid-February, but until then you can still use your guest passes at any gym across the country starting December 11th!
Will business hours be changing?
Business hours will remain the same!
Will I need to redo my top rope or lead check?
No. Movement will be honoring the belay status of anyone with a permanent belay card issued by The Cliffs.
I have unused value on a gift card – are those still valid?
Yes! You can continue to use your gift card at any of the former The Cliffs locations! You’ll also be able to use them at any Movement location across the nation once our systems are linked, which is expected in February.
Should I expect any changes in the setting style or frequency at any gym?
At the outset, we will not be changing anything related to routesetting product or offering. We want to keep what makes The Cliffs routesetting program awesome!
What happens to events?
You should expect events to run as planned, including the annual bouldering series!
Movement Member FAQ
Will I be allowed access to all The Cliffs locations and when does this start?
Yes! Starting Monday, December 11th Movement members will have access to all gyms — in New York City and Philadelphia metro areas and across the nation! Movement members will need to fill out a new participant agreement at The Cliffs locations.
Will I need to redo my top rope or lead check to climb at the The Cliffs gyms?
No need to update your top rope or lead climb tags—they’ll work at all roped gyms. Lead belay tags will need to be updated because The Cliffs gyms require the use of an Assisted Braking Device (ABD) to lead belay. Callowhill, Gowanus, LIC and Valhalla also have auto belays and you’ll need to complete an orientation and get an updated harness tag to use them.
