  • About Us: How CLMBR Got Started


    Director of Training and Education, Christa Dellebovi, is at the CLMBR Headquarters in Denver giving you a behind the scenes look at how CLMBR came to life.



    CLMBR was started in 2019 by CEO Avrum Elmakis and is based out of Denver, Colorado. The CLMBR is the first vertical climbing machine to offer at-home connected fitness. The innovative design allows the user to burn calories while also strengthening major muscle groups. Vertical climbing is designed to provide an efficient full-body workout in only 30 minutes.

  • How is CLMBR different from other vertical climbers?

    Vertical climbing is not new. Over the years, there have been countless iterations of the climbing machine, but until now, there have been minimal physical and technological improvements. CLMBR is the first climbing machine to completely rethink not only the design but also the user experience. 


    At CLMBR, we have ditched the old ways of climbing and ushered in a new era of connected fitness. Equipped with a low maintenance, versatile structure and an engaging selection of OnDemand classes, CLMBR promises an innovative user experience, unlike any other climbing machine on the market. 


    The CLMBR has an open central design plan which allows for users to have an unobstructed view of their screen and maintain the proper climbing form, without any barriers. Standing at 88 inches (about 7’4) the CLMBR is perfect for most home gyms. The machine also includes built-in wheels that give the option of mobility and kevlar belts that offer minimal to no maintenance necessary.


    In addition to the attractive physical features of the CLMBR, it also boasts a collection of 400+ classes (guided climbs, collections, challenges, etc) which are included in the Connected Membership. Users can bring the studio to their living room by following along with our 9 Guides as they lead through climbs ranging from beginner to difficult.


    The CLMBR workout is low impact and guarantees a high caloric burn in only a matter of minutes by combining intense cardio and strength training. Resistance varies from 1-11 (lowest to highest) and user form can be shifted to engage different muscle groups. From arms and shoulders to glutes and hamstrings, the CLMBR is a full body workout that will have you feeling the burn after each climb.

  • Benefits Of The CLMBR Workout

    Vertical climbing is easy on the joints and allows for life-long use without any negative consequences. Climbing eliminates any pounding on your joints and prevents erratic movement that could cause injury.  By combining cardio and strength training into one workout, CLMBR also allows the body to achieve higher caloric output in less time. Research has shown that vertical climbing can burn an average of 22.3 calories per minute and up to 800 calories in a 30 min session. 

    Superior Cardio + Strength

    The combination of cardio and strength training that CLMBR provides, allows the body to achieve higher output in less time. Vertical climbing tones your arms, shoulders, back, abs, glutes, and legs while also providing a calorie blasting cardio workout. Leg and arm day just became one.

    Higher V02 Max

    The maximum rate of oxygen consumption measured during incremental exercise, has been shown to be significantly greater during climbing. Studies have also shown that heart rate is higher while vertical climbing due to the enhanced blood flow and perfusion of arm muscles held overhead against the force of gravity during climbing exercise.

    Continued Caloric Burn

    Studies have shown that vertical climbing can burn an average of 22.3 calories per minute and up to 800 calories in a 30 min session Due to the push of higher VO2 max, this level of output allows the body to continue burning fat and calories for hours after the workout.

  • Screen and Volume Adjustments

    Screen Adjustments 

    CLMBR Connected has a 21.5” touch screen. The screen display integrates with the machine for improved user functionality and usability. The display tilts forward up to 15 degrees for optimal viewing angles during "off machine" exercise and floor-based workouts. If you are a Metrics+ or Premium member you will have access to the On-Demand experience, offered through CLMBR's screen.

    Adjusting the Volume On Your CLMBR

    One of the many benefits of CLMBR is the immersive experience. There are two ways to adjust the volume on your CLMBR to your preference: the volume button on the right side of the tablet or the volume button on the CLMBR screen.
