  • 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 designed in Denver, Colorado. We manufacture our products in partnership with a factory in Taiwan to ensure they meet our expectations. We’re confident in its consistency, high-quality work, and good working conditions. Final assembly and quality checks of CLMBR happens here in the USA.

  • 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. 

    climbr_courtesy-CLMBR.jpg

    It Has an Open Design and Unobstructed Visibility 
    Existing climbing machines all utilize the outdated and ineffective monopole design, which blocks the user’s view, creates a claustrophobic experience, and interferes with correct body alignment. CLMBR has eliminated these problems by creating a revolutionary open central design that encourages proper form and allows a comfortable climb with unobstructed visibility.

     

    Chauncey Billups, a retired American professional basketball player and CLMBR Ambassador, said, “the biggest thing that attracted me to CLMBR is actually the biggest thing I don't like about doing other vertical climbing classes. It’s the big hole in the mount. CLMBR’s design is really attractive. It's very sleek, and I can actually look at something that I want to look at in front of me, and that's either a screen or it's just an open area. I just feel free and open. So that, to me, is the biggest thing that I love about CLMBR.” 

     

    It’s Durable and Low Maintenance
    CLMBR’s durability and minimal maintenance requirements set it apart from the other leading climbing machine brands. While other vertical climbing machines use a chain that requires frequent greasing and maintenance, CLMBR is built with high-performance Kevlar ® reinforced belts that need minimal upkeep.

     

    Critical parts are easily accessible, making it easy to perform preventative maintenance and eliminates the need to reassemble the machine if repairs do become necessary. This significantly reduces the long-term costs associated with CLMBR. 

     

    It’s Versatile and Mobile
    When thinking about what makes a versatile piece of exercise equipment, mobility is key. Other climbing machines are usually bolted into the ground, making installation and mobility challenging. With CLMBR’s built in wheels and light frame, no bolts are needed. These features allow one person to easily move the machine across a room. This mobility makes CLMBR a great choice for at-home use, a crossfit gym, a climbing studio, and more. 

     

    It Has an Innovative and Engaging User Experience 
    CLMBR’s most differentiating feature is its user experience and technological advancements. The interface of existing climbing machine’s is outdated and static. CLMBR has created a user experience that is unlike anything on the market.

     

    Our CLMBR Connected membership gives users access to hundreds of recorded classes, creating a fun and motivating environment. You can do workouts with your favorite instructor without leaving the comfort of your own home.

  • Top 7 Reasons Why Vertical Climbing is the Best Full-Body Cardio Exercise

    _DSC1484_Web.jpg

    1) It is the most efficient cardio workout 

    For a lot of people, cardio is the least fun part of their exercise routine, and it can be difficult to muster up the energy and motivation to dedicate a full hour to it. That’s where vertical climbing comes in. Vertical climbing delivers an effective full-body workout in only 30 minutes and elicits a higher VO2 max than other cardio machines.Vertical climbing provides an effective combination of cardio and strength training, allowing the body to continue burning fat and calories for many hours after the workout. Vertical climbing is the most efficient and effective full-body cardio workout on the market. 

     

    2) It’s safe and low-impact

    When purchasing a piece of fitness equipment, it’s important to think about how it will impact your joints, muscles, and tendons long-term. Many cardio machines are high-impact and can have serious long-term consequences on your body. Chauncey Billups, a retired American professional basketball player and CLMBR Ambassador, said “you can get a heck of a workout without putting a lot of stress on your body and on your tendons and ligaments.” Vertical climbing allows for a natural, athletic position and ergonomic spinal alignment, and it is low-impact and accessible for all fitness levels. The design helps to reinforce good posture and strengthen the core to help combat slouching. Vertical climbing allows you to reach your fitness goals without compromising long-term health.

     

    3) Vertical climbing burns more calories than spinning, rowing, and running  

    Vertical climbing burns more calories per minute than a spin bike, treadmill, erg rower, elliptical, or stair stepper. With a 61% more efficient calorie burn, a quick 30-minute workout on a vertical climber is more than enough. Studies have shown that climbing can burn an average of 22.3 calories per minute and up to 800 calories in a 30 min session while a spin bike only burns 13.3 calories per minute and a stair stepper burns 7.45 calories per minute. Vertical climbing is the clear choice for the most efficient calorie burn. 


    4) You only need 30 minutes & it’s fun 

    Cardio can be repetitive and boring. After 10 minutes on the treadmill, it’s easy for the mind to wander. Vertical climbing leaves no room for a wandering mind. Its fast paced and engaging design keeps the user motivated and entertained throughout the entire workout. What’s even better is you only need 30 minutes. With a higher VO2 max output and more calories burned, 30 minutes is more than enough to get a well-rounded and intense workout. 

     

    5) It’s cardio and strength training

    Climbing allows the user to build incredible cardiovascular endurance while also strengthening all major muscle groups. By just adding resistance, you can tone your arms, shoulders, back, abs, glutes, and legs. Billups, a CLMBR ambassador said “To me, [vertical climbing] doesn't get the credit that it deserves for building strength in your legs and in your core area, two things that you really, really need pretty much for any sport.” The good thing about climbing is you can skip the treadmill and the squat rack because vertical climbing will do it both. 

     

    5) It’s full-body

    The problem with many workout machines is that they only focus on one muscle group. Popular cardio machines like bikes and treadmills focus almost exclusively on the lower body. Vertical climbing, on the other hand, is a full-body exercise. Your legs, glutes, arms, and core are engaged throughout the entire workout. Arm and leg day just got combined into one. 

     

    6) It’s great cross training 

    Vertical climbing is the best compliment to any sport or fitness modality. Integrating climbing into your strength and resistance program will add a new level of intensity and efficiency. It is the perfect addition to yoga, pilates, bootcamp, barre, and floor routines. Climbing is also an effective way to cross train. No matter if you are a professional athlete or a casual runner, you will see a difference in your performance after integrating climbing into your fitness practice.

    Higher V02 Max

    The maximum rate of oxygen consumption measured during incremental exercise, has been shown to be significantly greater during climbing.

    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.

    Keeps your joints healthy today and for the future 
    When investing in a new piece of fitness equipment, it’s not only important to assess its effectiveness but also the potential long-term consequences it will have on your body. Buying a treadmill may help you reach your fitness goals in the next year, but the long-term effects on your joints and tendons may not be as positive.

     

    That’s what sets vertical climbing apart. Climbing is one of the safest and lowest impact exercises on the market. It keeps your joints and muscles healthy today and in ten years. Vertical climbing is incredibly low impact and safe. Your feet stay planted for the entirety of the exercise, eliminating pressure and pounding on joints and ligaments. 

     

    Keeps spinal alignment, prevents injury, and strengths all muscle groups 
    Climbing allows for a natural, athletic position and ergonomic spinal alignment. The design helps to reinforce good posture and strengthen the core to help combat slouching. The cross-crawl movement of climbing makes proper form intuitive and easy to maintain. Because of all these features, vertical climbing is a perfect tool for physical rehabilitation. When climbing, the user is in a partial weight-bearing position that is conducive to successful rehabilitation and exercise of orthopedically and cardiac impaired patients. Climbing also helps to prevent injury by strengthening all muscle groups and protecting ligaments, tendons, and muscles. 

     

    Effective and Low-Impact 
    Chauncey Billups, a retired American professional basketball player and CLMBR Ambassador, said “the thing that attracted me most to vertical climbing is that as a long time professional athlete, my body hurts at times. You retire, you have so many injuries, and you put so much stress and pressure on your joints and ligaments over the years. Now I have found vertical climbing. You can get a heck of a workout without putting a lot of stress on your body and on your tendons and ligaments, which is something I was used to, but it's also something that I needed a major break from.” Vertical climbing is a highly effective workout that burns more calories than running, spinning, and rowing all while being safe and low-impact. You can’t get much better than that.
