5 ways to move it this spring

As the sun awakens, stretches its arms and shakes the fog and cold from its eyes, it’s time for us to think seriously about getting fit again. We’ve found five fun ways to get those bodies moving, and muscles twitching.

Hardrock Climbing

If you thought you couldn’t try your hand, arms, feet and a whole bunch of muscles you didn’t know you had at rock climbing in the city, you’d be wrong. Very wrong. Hardrock Climbing offers a great introduction to rock climbing and offers experienced climbers some serious challenges in the middle of the city. All required equipment is available to hire, and there are regular lessons for beginners available.

Kayak Melbourne
