Indoor Rock Climbing at Go Vertical- Weekly Meetup!

So, one of my goals for this year (particularly this winter) is to get a lot better at rock climbing, starting with indoor, but will be posting outdoor adventures once the weather gets nicer.  So I need to prepare!  In light of this, I am scheduling a weekly meetup to find others who want to hit the walls.  This will be a standing meet-up and there will be no announcement emails in your in-boxes.

Take your strength training to new heights, literally. Rock climbing is a full-body workout that feels less like work and more like play. An engaged core helps keep your body balanced on the wall, grip or finger strength helps you hold on, and your arms and legs are responsible for powering you up to the top of the climb. The best part: All that work builds endurance. A single climb is sure to leave you gasping for air.

 

Added bonus: Rock climbing exercises the mind. Every climbfrom short boulder problems (high-powered climbing that’s closer to the ground) to longer routesis like a maze or a puzzle. You have to figure out the best way to get to the top.

 

If you've never been rock climbing, Go Vertical offers a getting started class for $65 to teach the basics and get you feeling comfortable on the wall.  You will need to let me know ahead of time so I can make sure they have enough trainers available. The class is 2 hours long and includes all gear and 2 free climbing passes to use in the following two weeks.

 

If you have you own gear, it is $18 to climb till closing.  If you need to rent shoes, belay, and harness it is an additional $12, so $30 total. If you find you like climbing, I recommend investing in gear to save money.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
