Important health and social benefits can be gained from using climbing walls. Benefits of climbing: good cardiovascular exercise, it will help develop strength in all muscle groups giving a 'total body workout', learn about the importance of stamina, allow children to assess and take risk, allow them to set increasingly more difficult challenges, aid both fine and gross motor skill development as well as psychological development and boosting performance in other sports.

Climbing works every part of your body. It develops lean, endurance muscles, strengthens the core, which in turn, reduces the likelihood of incurring sports-related injury. Climbing strengthens hands, forearms, biceps, shoulders, neck, upper back, lats, lower back, abs, glutes, thighs and calves - your whole body benefits! The development of primary and secondary muscles though climbing also trains the body for increased performance in all sports. For example, Rugby and Racket sports require hand strength and agility, whilst football, running and cycling require upper body and core strength, all of which are improved through climbing.

It is a common misconception that climbing requires well developed upper body strength, when in fact, all that is required is technique, balance and leg strength. This means that boys and girls perform equally well, and that climbing is an activity suitable for all ages and abilities. Climbing also benefits children with special needs, as it increases perception, hand-eye coordination and balance. Climbing is a very 'tactile' activity, involving varied feel, texture, and shape, and the brightly coloured holds help to encourage visual and sensory stimulation.

Climbing is a fantastic way for children to have fun and release energy! It encourages goal setting as they seek more challenging routes across the climbing wall, as well as determination and concentration to get them there. Planning and strategy are developed, as well as risk-taking, increasing their confidence as they go. The opportunity for social interaction, communication and encouragement is also present, as climbing is a group activity.
