The benefits from indoor climbing

With indoor climbing you get the best possible workout. Even your mind benefits with the problem solving this sport demands, and you will learn mental control along with your improved climbing skills. As an exercise you get benefits from both endurance and strength training, and both fast and slow twitch muscles are required. So, climbing exercise engages and works all muscle groups simultaneously, while using and improving balance and coordination. Some may feel that working out at a fitness center is a little boring; but exercise with climbing is always new, challenging, and motivating. You also benefit from the social aspect you experience at a climbing gym or your own home climbing wall. It's a place for trust building, camaraderie, and selfconfidence. A home climbing wall room, or climbing gym location offers a pleasurable setting for parties or small groups of friends. With indoor climbing you will get a sense of accomplishment with your workout, and over a relatively short time improve your physical, mental, and even social aspects of your life.

Climbing wall

A rock climbing wall is an artificial structure comprised of shaped climbing holds that are attached to the surface both randomly and in specific routes. Before starting, a climber is secured with a safety harness to a climbing rope. It is then travels to the second person on the ground called a belayer. The belayer ensures the safety of the climber by controlling the tension, giving or taking as the climber ascends to the top. As climbers improve their climbing technique they usually purchase their own equipment. The basic items to get started include a pair of rock climbing shoes, a climbing harness, a belay device, and a chalk bag.
