It is safe to say that children today are born with a smartphone in their hands. Even if we don’t like it, this is the reality we live in. But children are children, and no matter how far digitalization goes, just as before, they have to play more in the physical world than in the virtual.
According to studies by the World Health Organization, for children to be healthy, they must practice some kind of sport for at least 30 minutes at least twice a day. Moreover, physical activity can have a positive effect not only on the physical but also on the psychological, personal and social development of the child. It is clear that these areas of development are interconnected, but an important question is which sports provide them at the same time. Climbing is one of them and Walltopia knows the benefits of it better than anyone else in the world. Therefore one of the company’s missions is to promote the climbing sport among young children.
Physical benefits of climbing
Climbing is a challenge that strengthens every part of the body. Like any sport, climbing increases the flow of oxygen in the blood, but stretching the arms up to reach the grip increases the heart rate and blood pressure, and the way the legs are used makes leg muscles stronger.
