"I always try to surprise my muscles. In Los Angeles, I work out at Rise Nation, which is a fitness climbing cardio class. It’s such an amazing workout!"

"Even though I only took five classes, I feel like I legitimately made progress in my conditioning. And the progress isn't just physical, it's mental."

"The act of climbing on a VersaClimber not only makes you strong, but also reinforces better moving patterns while working against gravity. The motions on the VersaClimber build a stronger core and back which gives you better posture and makes you a more deadly athlete. Win, win."

SUCCESSFUL
SETUP

Body position is important throughout class, and we like to start with a strong foundation. Our experienced team will be sure to help set you properly for your machine your first time, but here are some good tips to get you started.

  • Foot Straps should have a finger or two of slack so they do not restrict blood flow
  • Handlebars should be at shoulder height or below
  • While climbing the torso and shins should be parallel with the vertical post
  • If you feel light headed or dizzy, safely take hold of the foam hand rails, step off the climber, and alert a team member should you be in need of medical attention
