  • Actor Jason Momoa recently shared a trip to Canada’s largest indoor climbing gym on his YouTube channel.

  • He said he was getting back in shape in time to shoot “Aquaman 2.”

  • Momoa is an avid climber, despite having tendonitis, and has taught the sport to members of his family.


Actor Jason Momoa took fans on a shirtless tour of a Canadian rock climbing facility in an October 10 YouTube post, sharing his love for the sport before heading to the movie “Aquaman 2.”

He said he tries to “get in shape” during his day at the gym.

“I haven’t trained as much as I should because it’s COVID and it’s difficult. We work in the backyard, ”he said.

Browsing through the camera in Canada’s largest indoor climbing facility, Momoa literally jumps in excitement to be there, showing off the 50ft (15.24m) tall facility in Mississauga, Ontario, to the north from Toronto.

“It’s pretty bad when you run around the gym so excited,” he said. “I have a special place in my heart for climbing gyms. “

Momoa has been a longtime fan of rock climbing, despite having tendonitis, as he notes in the video, which can cause tendon pain, swelling and stiffness.

While at the gym, an assistant uses a knife scraper to help massage and loosen Momoa’s arms so he can continue climbing.

At one point, Momoa takes a break, thanks to too many recent leg days, he said, and uses a massage gun to help ease the pain.

“I can feel it. I’m not in shape to climb,” he said.

Momoa is also shown in the video teaching his cousin how to climb, which he says is in exchange for surf lessons.

“There is so much that I learned from climbing that it’s awesome, it’s such a beautiful thing to share,” Momoa said.
