Our Rock Gym Classes are Great for Groups
We have talked about how indoor rock climbing at our St. Louis gyms creates the perfect atmosphere for one-of-a-kind parties, memorable events and invigorating general exercise, but our rock gym classes provide another great benefit you can take advantage of. This refers to another popular use for our gym by groups; team building exercises for companies and other organizations. A technical definition describes team building as a method to:
- align around goals
- build building effective working relationships
- reduce team members’ role ambiguity
- find solutions to team problems

Working as a Team
Participants learn that indoor rock climbing isn’t just a fun way to get a full-body workout, but also a great environment to address each of these important goals above while they do.
The modern day workplace – life in general – can become a very stressful place. This can often lead to anxiety or depression, interpersonal conflict, and less focus on organization goals and success.
Rock Gym 101 and other rock gym classes allow these same people to root for each others successes in a neutral, non-threatening environment, learning to cooperate and support one another along the way.
Participants have the chance to create positive experiences with each other that simply aren’t possible in any other setting or way. Our Rock Gym 101 events are conducted by well-trained instructors with years of expertise, and can be tailored to folks in all types of different states of fitness.
Not only is our Rock Gym 101 class a fantastic way to build partnerships and pride in the group – the activity is so much fun that lots of companies and others actually use it as a reward for great performance or meeting organizational goals!
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of the course is not specific to Upper Limits, but something we want to foster in young people and adults in general. That is discovery of the sport of indoor rock climbing as a while.
This class “requires” that participants give the sport of rock climbing a chance – something they wouldn’t have even considered without the event – but then realize what a blast they had and great physical and mental workout received.
Great for Many Types of Groups
For youth, all of the same benefits apply, and building that strong sense of achievement and pride is something that all parents want their children to have.
If you’re having trouble getting your group to get along, a fun night out at our fitness center can do wonders.
Indoor rock climbing is fun for kids of all ages, not just the “sporty” ones. Even so-called “indoor kids” don’t take long to get on the climbing walls when they watch their peers having so much fun. Children climb at their own pace, and are encouraged and applauded by our friendly and well-experienced staff no matter how high they go – the real accomplishment here is their effort and willingness to try.
We work with kids all throughout St. Louis and North, West and South County to help them overcome their fears and set them up for success. In rock gym classes and other programs, groups of kids cheer each other on, rather than compete.
The type of confidence your child can create here can give them the determination to get things done, and can lead to be less susceptible to giving in to peer pressure according to psychologists.
In all our Group Events, Everyone Gets a Chance to Shine!
In addition to team building option, there are so many other ways that your group can enjoy all the benefit our St. Louis gym facilities. Rock gym classes can benefit everyone.
