Routine Revamp: Rock Climbing Workout
Shake up your workout routine with this local outdoor climbing center.
For those who crave adventure, scaling the intricately engineered walls at a climbing gym provides more than an adrenaline rush. Rock climbing—pushing, pulling, and lifting to reach a peak—is a dynamic, full-body workout. The motions challenge balance and flexibility, while also building strength by engaging leg, core, back, and arm muscles. And climbing flexes mental muscles, too. Navigating a wall requires strategy, creativity, and trust in your belayer. Locally, test your skills on the 30-foot rock wall and inclined bouldering wall (a lower formation that requires no rope) at Florida Atlantic University’s outdoor climbing center in Boca Raton. It’s open to the public Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons, and all climbing gear is included.
