The Benefits of Climbing

The Benefits of Climbing

The benefits of indoor climbing and the benefits of benefits of outdoor rock climbing often overlap and tend to be far greater than people first anticipate.

Climbing is without a doubt one of the world’s hardest sports and climbers are unquestionably some of the fittest people on the planet. Supporting your own bodyweight for long periods of time will not only strengthen you entire body from your fingers to your toes but will improve your life in other ways from improving cognitive skills, building self esteem and being part of a community.

Below are some of the main reasons why climbing is good for you.

Climbing Health Benefits

There are many physical benefits of climbing. From the outside in you will see and feel climber exercise benefits fairly quickly and these will only get better and better over time.

Some of the main health advantages of climbing which you will notice are:

  1. Stronger hands, wrists and arms
  2. Stronger thighs
  3. Incredible core, back and shoulder strength
  4. Endurance and Cardio improvements

Remember like any sport, it’s going to be hard at first. You’ll be using muscles you haven’t ever used so expect stiffness and aching. As you do more climbing you’ll develop stronger muscles and build resilience. Like all things in life practise makes perfect (well, it makes you better!)

Mental Health and Lifestyle Benefits of Climbing

Once you get stuck into it, you’ll find that that the benefits of wall climbing and the advantages of outdoor rock climbing aren’t just physical. The sport offers significant benefits to your mental health and lifestyle too.

Here are just a few of the non-physical climbing advantages which you may notice:

  1. The ongoing sense of achievement of reaching higher and harder climbs on a bouldering, climbing wall or rock climbing will build self esteem and resilience
  2. The ability to plan and prepare will improve your life skills.
  3. Climbing in itself builds cognitive skills.
  4. You will adapt to higher stress situations and become more able to cope with fight or flight situations.
  5. Climbing tends to attract adventurous types who also like hiking, camping and the great outdoors.
  6. You will belong to a new community making life long like minded friends.
  7. You will travel more and to stunning places around the world (who doesn’t love a mountain view).
