WHAT EXACTLY IS BOULDERING?
A workout, a hobby, a sport: a lifestyle
Bouldering is a discipline of climbing consisting of short and powerful sequences of kinesthetic movement. The climber is not roped, but rather protected by thick foam gymnastic mats. Bouldering is great for increasing strength and developing good climbing technique. A climber can burn up to 900 calories per hour while bouldering and having fun in a socially engaging atmosphere. The sport of bouldering helps improve your endurance, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and precision.
At Coastal Climbing we have over 150 boulder problems of varying difficulties. Boulder problems are recreated frequently giving climbers an endless array of new challenges.
For the sports enthusiast the amenities at Coastal Climbing can also help you add new spice to your sauce; as a new weekend activity or to help push you to your highest level.
Bottom Line: Bouldering is a fun and social way to get into shape.
IS CLIMBING EASY?
Good news: the best training for climbing is to climb. At first, your biggest gains will be more technical than physical. Your body composition and physical make up play a big role in climbing but ANYONE can enjoy climbing and become better.
At a certain point, some climbers might want to take it up a notch and pursue some complementary training. At Coastal Climbing we are stocked with a variety of gym equipment designed specifically for climbing as well as overall body conditioning. Core and finger strength are both crucial in climbing. The majority of climbers tend to target these two aspects in parallel training sessions off the wall. Jogging, multi-joint exercises and antagonistic muscle exercises like
YOGA will help to build strength, prevent injuries and help become a well-rounded athlete.
Bottom line : Climbing is fun yet difficult for most people at first. The more you climb the better you get and the more fun it becomes. As you progress you are able to achive more creative body movement and more climbs open up to you as a result.
