Indoor Rock Climbing

My dear friend Jess decided that she wanted to go rock climbing for her birthday and made us all aware lol. I was of-course totally down for this adventure because it was not too long ago that I said I wanted to do a hike/climb to the havasupai falls in Arizona. If we don't know what that is, just google it and you will find all sorts of good stuff about its breathtaking beauty and also the crazy 10 mile hike through the mountains of AZ to get there. With that said it was so apparent that we needed a little more training then the gym routine could provide. Here is a glimpse at some of the fun things I discovered at our local indoor rock climbing facility around how the act of climbing was, oh so good, for the mind and body.

Rock Climbing Is Crazy Physical

I quickly discovered that climbing went beyond upper body strength and I felt it in my core and legs having to hold on for dear life and propel to another footing to get higher up the rock. Reaching over stretched so many muscles in my body and that is a added bonus. The heart rate was also pumping as if we were in a cardio session, I was definitely sweating.

Rock Climbing Is Good For the Mind

It is no surprise that being active and in a outdoor setting will improve creativity, relieve stress, and improve attention. This is why it is not uncommon to see me go for a walk mid work day. Try it and see what I mean.
