Are you looking for a new and exciting way to have fun and get fit at the same time? How about indoor climbing? In recent years, this activity has become increasingly popular among sports enthusiasts as a way of simulating outdoor rock-climbing without some of the obvious hazards. Many gyms worldwide, and even cruise ships, are now equipped with these artificial rocks which feature hand holds, making it relatively safe to climb without danger of falling.
Indoor climbing offers a safe alternative to outdoor climbing and a means of keeping fit when weather conditions are unfavourable. There is no excuse if it is raining, or the weather is too hot or too cold. You can climb at anytime that your schedule permits. In fact, indoor climbing is the perfect solution when you are looking for things to do with the kids on rainy afternoons or during the long summer breaks. Some people even organise indoor climbing events around birthday parties and other family gatherings.
If you have become bored with your regular workouts and are looking for another form of fitness training, indoor climbing may be the answer. It is an aerobic exercise that helps build strength and endurance while helping (or encouraging) you lose weight. Indoor climbing targets all muscle groups, increasing your grip strength, arm and shoulder strength and leg strength. If you need to condition your body for actual rock climbing, you can do that through specific exercises on the artificial climb.
Whether you are trying to improve your form for outdoor rock climbing or are just looking for a new route to fitness and fun, indoor climbing could fit the bill. Be careful to select the right gear - proper shoes, ropes, harness and the like will ensure your safety and enjoyment of this great sport - most indoor climbing gyms will hire these out to beginners, so you can try before you invest in all the gear.
