Women Fitness President Ms. Namita Nayyar catches up with Natalia Grossman exceptionally talented World Champion professional rock climber, here she talks about her fitness routine and her journey to success.
You were born in Santa Cruz, California, United States. At the age of six years you began climbing at the Pacific Edge climbing gym, you joined the Zero Gravity team, and trained at Berkeley Ironworks. Later you became a professional rock climber. This propelled your career to the height where you have been at the top of the world as a leading rock climber player. Tell us more about this journey of hard work, tenacity, and endurance?
Between the times I was training in Berkeley to now, I moved to Boulder, Colorado. I have always been extremely motivated and have wanted to put my best work forward in anything that I do. Therefore, when I was 15 my family and I moved so that I could train with the best team in the country and improve my climbing skills. Although my parents had to make multiple sacrifices, it turned out to be “worth it,” and they love Boulder now!
