Love climbing rope but hate heights? Get a Marpo Rope Climbing Machine or Rope Flex model and let the rope come to you. Weight training is the quintessential anaerobic exercise. Traditional rope climbing workouts work against resistance provided by body weight. For most climbers, because of strength-to-body-weight ratios, this equates to heavy weight training which results in high anaerobic states.
Bouldering (as indoor rock climbing is more commonly known as) is an affordable and accessible way for you to enjoy the addictive sport of rock climbing.
With busier schedules than ever before, you may not always have the time to get out and climb your favorite line. It may be dark, too far or sometimes the weather just will not cooperate with your weekend plans. Brewer’s Ledge has solved this problem with their innovative American Made TreadWall. Easy to use because it is climber powered and there is a simple lever that adjusts the speed to suit your climbing style. Don't have the space for a TreadWall? Check out the super compact Boulder Board.
