Through the Internet



Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Athletic Motion

    DENVER, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Athletic Motion, a network of sites that
 serves as an in-depth resource for training, instruction and product advice
 for sports enthusiasts, today announced the latest addition to their suite of
 sites, Climbing Motion (www.climbingmotion.com).
     Climbing Motion is an online resource for climbers that features skills,
 techniques and tips written and demonstrated by professional climbers.
 World-class videographer Josh Lowell supplies top-of-the-line educational
 video sequences to the site.  Lowell, who Climbing Magazine called the "The
 King of Bouldering Videos" and "The Quentin Tarantino of the climbing world,"
 brings over 12 years of climbing expertise and knowledge to Climbing Motion,
 allowing users to view high-quality, easily downloaded video sequences on the
 site.
     Climbing Motion is dedicated to supplying all sports enthusiasts with the
 best web-based video available.  While many people still associate Internet
 video with poor quality and long download times, Climbing Motion is delivering
 high-quality images that are accessible even over slow connections, with very
 brief downloads.  The material and sequences generated for Climbing Motion are
 planned, shot and processed specifically for Internet delivery.  The results
 are cleaner looking sequences and smaller file sizes.  This quality combined
 with expert videography from Lowell makes Climbing Motion truly unique.
     "I am very proud to be a part of Climbing Motion.  One of the best things
 about the site is the thorough breakdown of the sport into its basic
 elements," said Josh Lowell, Climbing Motion videographer and president of Big
 UP Productions.  "Climbing is a very subtle sport -- a tiny adjustment in hip
 position or a finger placement can mean the difference between success and
 failure.  All of these details are addressed in our sequence sets, and
 demonstrated by the very best climbers in the world."
     Athletes featured on the site include Dave Graham, Luke Parady, Ivan
 Greene, Obe Carrion, Klem Loskot and Vadim Vinokur.  Recent additions to the
 Climbing Motion site include Katie Brown of Boulder, CO, who was recently
 ranked by Climbing Magazine as the world's best female sport climber as well
 as Tiffany and Jason Campbell, the well known husband and wife climbing team
 based out of Salt Lake City.
     "We're very happy to have Josh Lowell at the front lines of Climbing
 Motion, " said Bryan Sise, president and CEO of Athletic Motion.  "Josh's
 access to the climbing culture is unmatched, and he recognizes the power of
 video to depict the intricacies of rock craft."
     In addition to the video sequences, Climbing Motion introduces the user to
 a variety of online features.  Climbers can upload their own sequences to the
 site, talk with the athletes through web chats, collect a database of their
 favorite sequences for easy future access, participate in online forums, e-
 mail videos, find out what equipment and products the professionals are using
 and purchase products online.  Climbing Motion is continually adding new
 content for its users and updating information to the site.
