Family Fitness Tips Hertfordshire #1 Potters Bar Indoor Climbing

Are you planning to start healthier lifestyle as a family?
Indoor Climbing can be a super-duper family fun activity! Furzefield leisure centre in Potters Bar will offer you multiple different climbing walls and it’s suitable from age 4 to 94 and with no prior climbing experience!

We’ve booked our climbing session twice already – spaces are limited so you need to book upfront. For some reason, I was unable to complete my reservation through their website, so I made it over the phone. It went smoothly and they even sent me a copy of my receipt!

  • Child Ticket – Climbing – Cost £10.50
  • Adult Ticket – Climbing – Cost £13.95
  • Adult & Child Ticket – Climbing – Cost £21.00

On the day, we’ve arrived at Furzefield leisure centre approximately 15 minutes prior to our session beginning. The parking space is for free and can be quite full at times. Once we entered the main reception area, I’ve presented my copy of the receipt. They have asked us to enter the premises and pointed us to the climbing area. We walked through a door where was soft play and a small cafe. The young lady asked us to go back through the door again; turn right and sit down in front of a small TV. We were going to watch a short video and await a member of staff to take us to the climbing area.

Potters Bar climbing sessions last 60 minutes. The first 15 minutes you receive safety information – by watching a short safety video outside the climbing area and by watching a member of staff in the climbing area. Shoes that are not permitted include flip flops, sliders, crocks, professional climbing shoes and similar shoes. We went with trainers and it worked fine!

Once we were in the climbing area and familiar with the rules, we started climbing the walls! My daughter is four years old, so I was helping her at the beginning. She was very good climbing up, but struggled to jump off for the first time. After a little encouragement, she did it! The staff is very nice and encourage young kids to explore the area without fear. Indoor climbing does help to improve children’s confidence as they try new walls and master their climbing skills.

You do need to work with your arms when climbing up the walls. The next day, my body was a bit sore. All in all it was worth the experience though. We spent good quality time together, explored something new, did a little workout and definitely have a place to go on a rainy day!

Feel free to check out their video below and if you’re going to go, don’t forget to bring a bottle of water along!

ENJOY YOUR TIME TOGETHER! https://www.furzefieldleisurecentre.co.uk/childrens-activities/
