Climbing improves hand, foot, and eye coordination

Climbing is a full-body activity for your head, shoulders, knees and toes! As you reach for holds and navigate your way up the wall, every muscle in your body in activated – including your brain!

Climbing increases strength, endurance and flexibility

Children need to move for at least an hour every day, and climbing is an excellent way for them to do so. During their 55-minute Clip ‘n Climb session, your child will exercise their core, legs, arms and even the tiny muscles in their hands.

Climbing enhances problem-solving and decision-making skills

Every climbing wall at Clip ‘n Climb presents its own unique challenge. To reach the top, your child will need to mentally map out the most effective ways to navigate the holds. Climbing activates the same part of your brain that is used when solving puzzles!
