Climbing is a great way to have fun and work out at the same time.

Our Grip & Go indoor climbing facility offers 23 walls for you to scale and is open to adults and children from age 4 and above. Whether you’re a beginner or a climbing expert, Grip & Go has something for everyone. 

Here are a few reasons why you should come and try indoor climbing for yourself:  

1. Something New:

Climbing offers a new and exciting way to work out. Sometimes the gym can become repetitive and you may want to switch up the way that you work out. Get back your motivation by trying something different.


2. Full Body Workout:

According to the NHS, climbing allows you to exercise your back, abdominal and leg muscles as well as your fingers, shoulders and arms, making climbing a perfect full body workout.

3. Strength Training:

As you can imagine, climbing requires great upper body strength to pull yourself up and across the walls. It engages muscles in our arms and back, and also your lower body. Over time it will tone up muscles and build muscle mass. 


4. Cardio:

Not only does climbing help you become stronger, it can also improve your breathing, increase your stamina and boosts your heart rate as it is a low impact cardio workout. 

5. Flexibility: 

Regular climbing can help improve your flexibility as you will need to reach, jump and stretch yourself while conquering the walls. This stretching can improve blood circulation and your range of motion. 


6. Stress Relief:

Climbing, like most exercises, is a fun and effective way to de-stress. Exercise is shown to be a major factor in stress relief and the improvement of mental health. Climbing really does provide the ideal workout to help with this. Success on the wall might just lead to success in life. 

Overall, climbing is a rewarding, fun way for the whole family to keep fit!

Come and try climbing at Grip & Go based at our Adrenaline Centre in Rossendale, Lancashire.
