Climbing Specific

The new bouldering wall at Perfect Fit offers a unique addition to your normal training!

 

What is climbing all about?

Each climbing route is like a puzzle, which requires patience, planning and analysis to complete. Beginners will typically work out their ascent as they go up, but with experience they learn to visualise their climb and spot tricky sections before reaching for their first hold.

 

How can climbing help me?

Over time, regular rock climbing or bouldering can help develop concentration, determination and problem-solving skills. As you improve, you will naturally want to push yourself further and try harder climbs or even climb outdoors.

The amount of goals you can set yourself is limitless. Setting yourself goals and meeting them gives you a great sense of achievement, which in turn can help build everyday self-confidence.

While on one level rock climbing is an individual pursuit, it also has a very social component because you’re never alone (or shouldn’t be). You’ll either be climbing with a group of friends, schoolmates, colleagues or family. You tend to develop strong friendships with your climbing partners due to the level of trust involved and through sharing challenges and experiences.

 

I already Climb and I would like to push my grade, improve and get stronger!?

For the more advanced climbers looking for gym based training we can create a bespoke ‘climbing specific’ programme to improve your strength and stability on the rock.

We will seek to discover the areas in which you are weaker and come up with a plan to improve them as well as building on your strengths, certain areas can include:

  • Upper or lower body strength, endurance and/or power
  • Core Strength
  • Visualising and climbing
  • Co-ordination
  • Stability
  • With injuries such as Golfers or Climbers elbow, we can set a rehab programme to get you back to climbing as soon as possible. Should you need professional guidance with any injuries, we also have our in house physio team lead by Andy Gardener.
