Pinnacle Adult Climbing Course

Pinnacle Adult Climbing Course:

Monday & Wednesday Options

$149.95 + HST 

Whether you’ve just started or are getting back into climbing this is the course for you! We will focus on getting you up the wall more efficiently with techniques to help you improve to get to that next level.

WHY ARE CLIMIBNG LESSONS IMPORTANT?

The course training focuses more on technique than strength.  Contrary to what newcomers to the sport might think, extreme upper body strength isn’t necessary to start climbing. The first secret is knowing that technique gets you further than strength alone. Remember that the muscles in our lower body are much bigger and stronger, and it makes sense for them to do a lot of the work. When you have a strong base of technical skills, you will see your strength and endurance exponentially grow.  Because climbing is a full body work out, we are seeing more customers move away from traditional static and repetitive work outs that you see in most conventional gyms.  Your core, legs, arms and back must work together when climbing and you will see yourself get stronger after just a few climbing sessions!

CLIMBING IS ALSO GOOD FOR YOUR BRAIN!

Yes, you read that right!  More studies are coming out that demonstrate that putting your body under physical stress and having to still concentrate on figuring out how to make a specific move to climb a wall is very stimulating mentally. While very early in their trials, people with Parkinsons and other nurological conditions have noted that climbing has helped slow the effects of their disease and some have even reported seeing the disease actually regress.  Some climbers have been able to regain control and improve motor function that they felt was lost forever!  Check out the link below!
