When you think of working out, rock climbing usually isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But don’t count it out – it’s an amazing and really fun workout! Build your arm and leg strength, and work your core just by having a good time. Plus, you’ll feel accomplished when you reach the top!
After putting on the shoes and strapping on the harness, you’re ready to go! Summit has both auto-belay routes if you’re by yourself and belay routes if you have a friend. If you’ve never helped someone up the wall, the employees will teach you! It only takes a few minutes to learn how to belay. There are also many different levels of routes from moderately easy with large rocks to super tough with very tiny rocks! Each route is marked and colored to make it easy too.
If you’re feeling like daredevil, you can try bouldering! No harness. Just climb. It’s not as intimidating as it sounds! The bouldering walls are much shorter with a huge and squishy mat to fall back onto. This area of the gym is usually where all the younger kids hang out and show off!
Rock climbing is also a great team building outing! Quickly learn how to trust your coworkers with the belaying walls or have races to see who can get to the top the fastest.
