4 Best Rock Climbing Gyms in Philadelphia


Posted By: Pamela Toy

Pilates is a fantastic way to stay in shape, but we also recommend mixing up your workouts.

Here at PilatesByPamela, we encourage cross-training in other sports because they can help you to develop coordination and strengthen your overall body.

Doing traditional workouts can get boring to some people very quickly, but sports are a great way to break a sweat while learning a fun new skill.

One of the sports we recommend checking out is rock climbing because it checks both of those boxes.

According to Health Digest, rock climbing can help you burn a lot of calories, improve core strength, flexibility, shoulder stability, and posture. (1)
