The Benefits of a Rock Climbing Gym Membership
It can be a bit intimidating when you’re first starting to work out, especially in a public venue like a gym. How do you use the equipment? What if you need help, who do you ask? This is where attending a quality exercise class might be just the right fit for you.
With a rock climbing gym membership, you can attend scheduled workout sessions with a trainer that have multiple people taking part at the same time. When it comes to finding classes, you want to make sure you go to a gym that has a friendly environment, skilled trainers, a varied schedule, and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities.
Here at Reach Climbing, we offer a variety of adult rock climbing classes and other kinds of group memberships, whether you are a first-timer or just looking for a venue with superior service and a great atmosphere.
Below we’ve outlined some of the best reasons you should sign up for a rock climbing gym membership this year!
While jamming out to music alone is always a nice option, sometimes it can be motivating and inspiring to see other people doing the same workout as you. You will feel like you’re all in it together and be inspired to keep pushing yourself. It also helps to have people cheering you on, pushing you to go a little faster, or struggling right alongside you. If they can do it, so can you!
Learn Proper Form
Gyms can be daunting. There’s all this equipment to figure out, you don’t know which exercises to do for what body part, and there’s the possibility of getting injured if you don’t know how to move right or how to stretch properly. Group exercise classes are great, especially with rock climbing, because a trained instructor is there to help you learn the proper form and technique to keep you safe while also showing you new workouts for targeted results. Our skilled trainers at Reach Climbing know how to help people at every fitness level whether it’s strength training, rock climbing, TRX, or HIIT workouts.
When you’re new to working out, you may not be able to meet a regular schedule because you lack the discipline. You may also be more likely to skip a day (or two) if you aren’t in the mood to workout. But when you’re taking a class and joining a gym, you’re more likely to show up so you don’t let your trainer or workout buddies down. If you’ve already signed up for a class or told people you’d be there, you’re definitely going to feel that extra motivation to show up.
A membership can help you create a routine that works for you and get you into the fitness lifestyle. We have classes at the same time every week so you can start forming your routine with ease. Maybe you want to take a yoga class every Sunday, a rock climbing class every Monday and Saturday, and a strength training class mid-week. The classes themselves also have structure, so you’re never left wondering what you should do first or if you are performing your workouts in the right order for maximum benefit.
When you join group exercise classes, you’re joining a new community. You’ll meet supportive, energetic, and active people who are there to motivate you. Seeing the same people every week will help create new friendships and strengthen bonds. You never know who you’ll meet until you join a class!
The bottom line is that indoor rock climbing is fun, and in a group it’s even better! While you will most definitely sweat – and maybe even feel some burn – group classes are truly a fun time for people looking to be active and social. There’s fast-paced, fun music playing. There are people laughing, talking, and pushing themselves. There are unique, varied workouts every day. You’re going to get challenged but you’re likely to leave with a smile.
