Once a niche activity, today climbing is a sport that gathers an increasing number of enthusiasts, with an unexpected record for women. When safely practiced, this is a sport that is good for the body, the mind and also the couple’s relationship.

Climbing is a physically demanding sport that does not imply being strong: climbing will actually develop strength because this practice puts all our muscles into play. Climbing gives a feeling of satisfaction and happiness and it is almost more effective than a total body workout in the gym.
