Looking for more excitement than just a treadmill?
Have you ever thought about the benefits of climbing as an alternative to the boredom of the gym? We’re not talking about climbing Everest or hanging off rock faces by your fingertips, but multi challenge indoor climbing arenas like Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich, where you can tackle anything as easy as climbing a ladder to a simulated rock face, all within a safe and fun environment.
Full body workout
Climbing is a low impact whole body activity which uses all the major muscle groups, making it a great way to keep fit and muscles active. Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich, which not currently boasts the title of largest worldwide centre, also offers 46 amazing challenges catering for all ranges in ability. Instructors are on hand to offer support and guidance, helping choose the right level of difficulty for every individual need and requirement. As the years pass, keeping a level of fitness can have huge benefits. This doesn’t necessarily mean suffering to gain results but keeping a steady, gentle pace on a weekly basis has so many positive benefits. Often, taking the first step is the hardest one, so the relaxed, fun atmosphere at Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich is an ideal place to start.
Healthy Body Healthy Mind
It’s widely recognised that even small amounts of regular exercise can have huge benefits for our mental health. It can boost our mood, help relieve stress and anxiety, give us more energy, stimulate the growth of more brain cells and helps prevent age-related decline.
Safety is paramount
Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich uses the TruBlu Belay System for each climbing challenge. This is a device that has revolutionised the climbing industry and its safety record is second to none.
All climbing sessions include a full safety briefing which detail the safety elements of the arena and how to clip yourself in – this is such a simple mechanism that even young children are able to do it autonomously. With its simplicity of use and internal mechanism which uses the Eddy currents braking system, you can’t go wrong! As soon as a climber decides to come off the wall, the belay system lowers you down slowly and safely to the arena floor. One of the hardest challenges is the initial ‘letting go’, but after a couple of attempts, the sensation of coming down is great and leaves climbers wanting to do it all over again!
Stuart, one of the arena leaders at Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich is 54 and has seen first hand the benefits that can be gained with regular climbing, particularly when recovering from a serious shoulder injury.
It’s great to see so many over 50’s having fun while exercising, and the feedback we’ve had so far has been fantastic with many returning every week.
