Where are we going today?

Rock climbing is one of those sports that you don't really hear many people talk about, but when they do, they LOVE it.  And when you try for the first time, you realize why they love it. That's what BLOC Climbing and Fitness is all about!

It's perfect for kids from a young age, and it really develops their coordination, balance, techniques and strength.  They can start with the soft maps and the low bouldering grips, where they don't need ropes, they are only a few inches off the ground if need be.  And then as they develop, they realize how far they've come - they see routes that they couldn't do when they first arrived, and now can complete it without any problems.

There is a great sense of achievement with rock climbing, and a personal program they can monitor themselves. 

BLOC climbing + fitness have over 7,000 square feet of top of the range bouldering walls, as well as auto-belays, and tread walls - but not only that, it has another 13,000 square feet of fitness facilities and activities such as yoga! 

For those budding climbers under 12, you will need to climb with a responsible adult, but really kids of any age can climb. 

If you're a little unsure because it's your first time, then you can pick up a group lesson package where you learn the basics of techniques and how to climb.

If there's a group of you and you want something super cool. from 8pm - 8am (no we didn't get those the wrong way around!) you can do the "Lock in" where you get the entire facility to yourself!  Pretty amazing!

Happy climbing!
