The Best Gym That’s Not a Gym

Men's Health (UK) - - Gym Awards 2018 -

ED­IN­BURGH IN­TER­NA­TIONAL CLIMB­ING ARENA, ED­IN­BURGH ed­in­burgh­leisure.co.uk Reps are, by def­i­ni­tion,

repet­i­tive. For those crav­ing some­thing truly func­tional, trade the 100kg bar­bells for 100ft tow­ers. The Ed­in­burgh In­ter­na­tional Climb­ing Arena is si­t­u­ated within the cav­ernous Ratho Quarry, a stone’s throw from Ed­in­burgh air­port. Boast­ing 300 routes of vary­ing grade, plus boul­der­ing rocks that mimic the “real deal”, it’s Europe’s largest in­door climb­ing arena. It’s also where the pros go: last year, it hosted the IFSC Climb­ing World Cup, and there’s a Team GB coach on hand should you re­quire any tips. Re­turn­ing to the weights room will be a wrench.
