What began as a personal challenge to conquer a fear of heights quickly turned into a lifelong passion for Jordyn, a climber of almost 3 years. At CNH Jordyn teaches kids classes and summer camps, beginners technique, women's group, and climbing 101. Her favorite thing about climbing is the community of climbers and the support that they provide for long-time climbing enthusiasts and new climbers alike. Her passion for psychology and love of climbing recently converged in a year-long study for her senior thesis. The investigation into the effects of rock climbing on positive and negative moods showed (unsurprisingly) that climbing makes people happier.
When she's not pulling plastic in the gym, Jordyn enjoys hiking and climbing outside, camping, and playing guitar. Jordyn's future climbing goals are to get into deep water soloing and to climb in the Adirondack mountains of New York.
Randy has been obsessed with outdoor sports since becoming a white water guide in 2010. This ultimately led him to the complex world of rock climbing in which he was immediately hooked. Having an engineering background, he loves the science behind training for climbing and keeps up to date on the latest information for improving climbing performance. His training style focuses on mobility, strength, and skill as the key factors for improving in our sport.
Randy conducts group fitness classes, and 1-on-1 long term climbing coaching at Climbing New Heights.
