One of my colleagues recommended me to try indoor rock climbing, called ‘bouldering’ for exercising. He used to love it but he’s probably getting too heavy and old to do it. Rock climbing has become a popular sport since Kim Ja-in has earned her fame for her great performance in the world. And I’ve been told that indoor rock climbing could be such a good workout since you use your whole body.
I remember that I saw a place of indoor rock climbing before but I never cared. I tried to look it up again and found out there is a good bouldering gym near my house. I also found out its definition. ‘Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed on small rock formations or artificial rock walls without the use of ropes.’ I feel like I’m getting older since I’m aging. I better start something, anything to stay healthy and indoor rock climbing could be such a solution.
This is what it looks like when you get to the bouldering gym. It looks very… tough.
I wonder why all the sides of walls are tilted. Isn’t it too hard to hang on the walls like that?
This is what I was talking about. Is he really hanging on there with only his arms? How’s that possible?
Oh, students and kids can do it? That is embarrassing.
Looks like they have normal gym facilities for leisure time.
