The cheap and easy way to trick yourself into getting a great workout

Most of us dread going to the gym and sitting on a stationary bike for thirty minutes, all while wishing we were doing something that wasn’t quite so boring. With Rock Climbing, not only is every moment a new puzzle (where’s the next grip?!), but it’s also super affordable. Every gym will rent out rock climbing gear for you to use and most memberships are only around the $20 range to get started – plus, you’ll be guaranteed to get the full-body workout of a lifetime! What’s not to love?


It’s a real-world skill that will satisfy your adventurous spirit!

Once you get good enough, it’s only a matter of time before you try bouldering or rock climbing in real life! Even if you don’t decide to, being able to challenge yourself whenever you want inside a climbing gym is still beneficial to your wellbeing. Keep cracking that whip and improving!


Toronto has some great facilities

The Toronto Climbing Academy, for instance, is a time-honoured and tested company that makes teaching newbies and developing skills a breeze. Located at 11 Curity Ave., this company has been around for a while and is dedicated to teaching all kinds of skills and concepts to all kinds of climbers.

Boulderz Climbing Centre is another take on the same formula! Located at 1444 Dupont St., this gym boasts some fantastic lessons, beginner training, and kids programs for the times you’re looking for something to do with the little ones! Their staff has tons of experience and are all ready to show you the ropes – literally!

After a stint as a jaded, skeptical journalist, she changed tack and began writing rather awesome blogs and showing businesses that advertising is dead, so long live social media, with her businesses Legendary Social Media. She now splits her time between various Canadian cities, Costa Rica and wherever else the wind blows.
