Summer is almost over, but the heat continues. If you want to have a good workout but can’t stand the heat, indoor climbing is the best activity.

The popularity of this sport is increasing because it is not only for adults. Even very young children can have fun in a safe environment that is not possible with outdoor rock climbing. Supervisors and coaches are always ready if you need tips or are stuck at inappropriate heights.

Like many whole body exercises, indoor mountaineering exercises the whole body. You do not need extra strong arms and legs to climb, just enroll in a beginner class. It helps if your fitness level is better than low, but that should not stop you from trying it.

So what exactly does indoor mountaineering do? It focuses on the whole body but emphasizes the arms and forearms, areas that are often overlooked in regular exercise. These are the first two to get bored, and even if you are ready as a fiddle, you will be amazed at how tired you feel in the first five minutes.

A great calorie burner

According to research, mountaineering inside and outside the home, both depending on gender and height, burn 970 calories per hour. And calorie burning does not end there. Even the bottom rappel is an exercise that can lose 700 calories per hour.

By comparison, a 160-pound person burns about 730 calories an hour by rope. Despite the slight difference in calories burned, indoor climbing is more fun and makes the safe environment ideal for children, teens, adults and the elderly. You do not have to go fast. Just trying to get a few meters taller has a big impact on the amount of calories and weight you lose.

Great for flexibility

If the flexibility of a garment is not strong, indoor mountaineering can change it by forcing you to work the muscles. The first few sessions will be brutal, but keep going and you’ll be amazed at how much range of motion you have, especially around your shoulders and buttocks.

Good brain power booster

Mountaineering requires thinking. You need to find the best way to reach the top using the minimum number of moves to save energy. This strategy enhances problem-solving skills and improves hand-eye coordination, two features not found in many standard sports movements.

Expands social networks

An indoor mountaineering center sees several people practicing at any given time. This place serves as a meeting place for like-minded people, so if you are looking to expand your social network or just need a place to hang out with friends, few places have this feature. Even businesses can use it to profit from a corporate turnover. Some clubs offer packages for businesses, so give them this idea the next time your boss plans an office trip.

All climbers will tell you that indoor climbing is addictive. In fact, you can not use it enough. It does not get boring because there are always new challenges and if you progress from the beginner stage, in the next session you will find that you set higher goals.
