Indoor Rock Climbing – Open CLIMB & Family CLIMB
VENT Fitness Guilderland offers CLIMB, our exclusive 30-foot indoor rock climbing wall to reinVENT your workout!
Adding CLIMB to Your Existing Workout
Indoor Rock Climbing is a full body workout. From your forearms, shoulders, and upper back to your core and legs, your muscles will improve in strength, endurance, and flexibility. (Think lat pulldowns, rows, one-legged squats, hanging leg raises and core stabilization all in one activity). In addition, you are working on your balance and coordination at the same time, making rock climbing a fantastic warm-up to your other work, or an excellent main workout.
The Mental Benefits of CLIMB
When you walk over to a barbell, you don’t have to think about how to do a bicep curl. On our rock climbing wall, you are strategizing every move you make, and how it will affect your following moves. You can climb the same route 3 times in a row, and complete it differently every time, based on which holds you use, which direction you face your body, and where you place your center of gravity. You certainly won’t get bored!
Your first CLIMB
Come use our indoor rock wall when it is staffed, and our staff member will belay you on our top rope lane. On belay, a staff member can hold you in place if you need a break (physical or mental) and lower you down easily whenever you are done. Whether you climb to the top or just a few feet, the workout is still equally challenging – if heights concern you, stay low and try for more laps!
Ready for more CLIMB?
When you are ready for the challenge, our automatic belay systems will let you climb the rock wall on your own. These devices will let you down slowly as soon as you let go of the wall!
