Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I started doing indoor rock climbing about a month and a half ago and have gotten incredibly hooked to it. As someone that's working on losing weight and going to the gym 6-7 days a week I found it added a nice break from the gym while also just being fun. Being able to see improvements week to week is a fantastic feeling.
So far I just been going once a week with a friend on their 2 for 1 nights. Right now though I'm seriously considering getting my own equipment and a year membership, which in the long run ends up cheaper (as long as I continued to go at least once a week). The gym has a package that includes a year membership and
Mad Rock Flash climbing shoes
Mad Rock Mars Harness
ABC Black Hole chalk bag
for 495 which seems fair. Have no idea bout the quality of the shoes and harness though. Anyone familiar with that brand? Or can throw any recommendations?
Also, I want to keep hitting the gym and running, so are there any specific excercises that I could add to my gym days that would benefit me on rock climbing?
