by Amiee Jones – January 12, 2017

Have you ever felt stuck in a fitness rut? Done with dumbbells. Tired of the treadmill. Sick of sit-ups. Let’s explore a fresh fitness option to break up the monotony!
Climbing is a great fitness pursuit. Whatever your experience level, climbing helps to increase your flexibility and physical strength. Overcoming the challenge of climbing also benefits your mental strength. There are, clearly, many advantages to this adventurous exercise.

Wild Asaph Outfitters, in Wellsboro, is a great source for climbing gear. Owner Jenny Lusk took some time to explain gear needs for those interested in becoming more invested in the sport. From harnesses, to ropes and carabiners, to shoes, you will be all set for your next climb after a visit to WAO!

A great location for that climb to take place is the Kelchner Fitness Center at Mansfield University. Their indoor climbing wall allows for year round climbing. They also offer equipment rental, which makes it a great option for beginners who want to test climbing out. The Kelchner climbing wall is certainly a fitness asset to Tioga County.

Climbing could be the breath of fresh air that your exercise routine needs! Thankfully, there are some stellar climbing resources in Tioga County. For more information, please stop in at Wild Asaph Outfitters (71 Main St. Wellsboro), or visit their website. Similarly, find out more about Kelchner fitness center at their website here.

Happy climbing!
