Let Prime Climb introduce you to the fastest growing sport in the 21st century, Indoor Rock Climbing. The sport of indoor climbing began in the late 60's in Europe and spread to the US in the late 1980's. When Prime Climb opened its doors in 1993 it was the first climbing gym to open in Connecticut, and at the time, only one of a handful of gyms operating in the US. In the beginning the sport was primarily enjoyed by climbers who used the gym for physical training and conditioning purposes. Today, indoor climbing on artificial walls, has grown to become a sport the can stand on its own or serve as a gateway to further adventures outdoors. Much like outdoor climbing, indoor rock climbing challenges the mind as well as the body.
This sport is perfect for active children, teens, and adults wishing to experience a workout that is challenging, exhilarating and fun. Climbing provides a unique combination of mental and physical challenges that will ensure continued interest in the sport and an all-around conditioning workout. Climbing also increases flexibility, strength, and endurance, while being immersed in single-minded concentration of the task at hand. What is gained is a sense of awareness, self-fulfillment, and confidence in yourself and others. With 20 years of experience in the industry, Prime Climb can help everyone acheive the climbing goals.
