Thursday 11/1 Rock Climbing Fitness Adventure

YOUR INNER SPIDY
Ascending a 100 ft crag or 40-foot indoor rock wall involves more than adrenaline rush.  Many are not aware of the excellent cross-training benefits that rock climbing has to offer.   Most think rock climbing is all about upper body strength but your lower body should be handling the primary workload. Cardio is the added surprise benefit. The average 155-pound person can burn up to 700 calories in one hour of climbing.  Muscle endurance, agility, and flexibility come into play when pulling off tricky maneuvers or hanging in position for your next move.  And hello “grip strength," something required for many sports yet rarely trained.  You can’t make it up a wall using tiny holds without a powerful grip. 

BRAIN POWER
Brain benefits often take a back seat when considering a new cross-training activity.  We use our brains and willpower to push through the pain, fear, and endurance of many sports training activities.  It can be the thing that separates a successful athlete from the rest of the pack.  Rock climbers can go into the hyper-focus mode. They can block pain and push beyond artificial limits, especially while climbing difficult routes that involve intense problem-solving.  Body awareness is a mental benefit as well.  A climber has to understand how a certain position will feel and the outcome of the next movement. 

LESSONS FOR LIFE
Oh yes, I’m going there…. “Deep thoughts by Casi."    There is nothing better than learning a good life lesson doing a workout that kicks your ass. Rock climbing teaches focus and how to conquer your fears. The idea of balance which can be related to life balance is in play at all times and your sheer determination can be the thing that propels you to the top.

Ice Climbing Fitness Adventure - Connecticut

If you’ve always wanted to try ice climbing, now is your chance!

  • No experience necessary

  • All gear included

  • Supportive group environment

  • Small group - limited spots available

  • Smiles and laughs are free

Ice climbing looks badass but just about anyone can swing ice axes and kick crampons into an icy cliff wall. I’ve introduced many fitness enthusiasts to this sport and they're always surprised by the benefits. This is functional training at its best, engaging quads, glutes, hamstrings, shoulders, lats, forearms and core. Just about every muscle you use for standup paddling. And your cardiovascular system will be put to the test moving up different pitches.

Message to sign up or to inquiry for more info.

Sep
28
to Sep 30

*NEW TRIP* Ladies Paddle to Climb Adventure Lake George and Rogers Rock, NY

Double your adventure with a paddle to climb trip on Lake George and Rogers Rock in New York!  

Day One we leave at first light with our boards packed with food and gear for an 18-25 mile paddle around Lake George. Total paddle time and the route will be determined by the weather Mother Nature intends to deliver.  This is a causal paddle but you must be prepared for paddling upwind and with choppy conditions.  We end day one camping near Rogers Rock.

Day Two we paddle to a Rogers Rock that hovers over Lake George.  Rogers Rock is a 700-foot slab with 5.4 and 5.6 multi-pitch climbs.  When we arrive at the rock, we will split up into teams begin our climb.  Once on the route, there is no turning back so you must be ready for the physical and mental challenge.  We end the day packing up camp and paddling to our take-out spot, celebrating with dinner and drinks at a local restaurant.  

Paddling experience is required.  Paddleboard and camping equipment is not provided.  Boards must be able to haul at least 40 pounds of gear. Beginner climbing experience is required.  All climbing gear and instruction are provided.    

Please contact me or call for more information!
