Hangboard is great for finger strength and some muscle mass in the forearms, but for the strength side you should also be bouldering at the climbing gym. It's the least boring way to get power and finger strength. Then get into some campusing once you are strong enough. Do some endurance work but you will get a substantial amount of endurance through your strength work, particularly if you are doing a lot of it.

The fitness gym is of limited value, although no harm if that's what you like to do. Good for general fitness and keeping antagonist muscles in shape but way less value than the climbing gym.

My completely unscientific 2c.
