|Rock Climbing...For Beginners!|
|How to get the best views of all your favorite places...from the top!
Erik Holmes, MSPT and Clinical Manager of our Boston office has been an avid climber for a number of years (he is also a route setter for Metro Rock Gym http://www.metrorock.com/)
What he enjoys most about climbing are the people and the mental and physical challenges the sport poses. Climbing is a unique sport in that it requires a balance of strength, technique and problem solving ability. He feels climbing is a very rewarding and enjoyable sport because no matter your skill level you can always challenge yourself and when you achieve your goals you feel very rewarded.
The other thing that he likes about climbing is the bond of friendship that is shared between climbing partners. Very few sports exist where your life is dependent upon your partner. That dependence builds a bond and level of trust that is not commonly seen in other sports.
It is a passion that he is sharing with a number of our other staff members as well (Daryl Lamprey, DPT from Braintree and Jill Potvin, Office Manager in Weymouth) . This month we feature an article about Rock Climbing 101...equipment to buy, how to get started and some common terminology: that way you sound like an expert when you head to your local rock climbing gym for your first lesson. To check out our article (with some pictures of the team on a climb in New Hampshire), click on Erik's photo above. For a quick video of Jill making the climb, click here.
