I’ve always wanted to go wall climbing even when I was still single. I even registered for the Mountaineering Club back in college to experience both mountain and wall climbing but it never materialized (I guess I’m not just a non-techie mom, I’m also not a sporty mom lol). Imagine my delight when I found that there’s a wall climbing area at the Family Fun Park. There’s a separate area for toddlers and bigger kids and for adults too. The toddler’s wall is of course the most colorful, the climbing stones shaped into fishes and padded so the fingers won’t hurt as little kids hold on to them.
One good reason I wanted to wall climb is the fact that it helps one to lose weight. (As other sports combined with exercise training and cardio too, I guess.) What I enjoy about this is it can be done indoors, this one of a kind activity burns about 380 calories in 30 minutes. It is an overall body workout because one uses the power of both the upper and lower body when he/she climbs.
The older kids got to try the bigger wall too! See, they’re completely geared with a harness. I didn’t worry about their climbing as the attendants seem to be able when it comes to this. Below is the hubby’s epic failure in climbing and going down technique. lol.
