WCS Meetup // Friday 16. Oct 6.30-9pm

Women’s Climbing Symposium 2015 is fast approaching.  On Friday night we at Womenclimb are running a meetup at The Climbing Works.  If you’re coming to WCS on your own then this is a great opportunity to meet others who will be there on Saturday.  This will be a friendly meetup where you can have a boulder if you fancy, or just stay for a cuppa and meet others who are going on Saturday.  If you’ve never been to The Works this is a great chance to familiarise yourself with the place prior to Saturday’s event.

I hate the gym
Boulder problems, campus board and gym equipment at PT Hut Stockport

Boulder problems, campus board and gym equipment at PT Hut Stockport

By Emily Pitts // I’ve only ever been to a gym twice in my life and I hated every moment. I felt like a fish in goldfish bowl and a fish out of water at the same time. I couldn’t get out fast enough. In fact the last time, I actually did a runner out of a class at a Virgin Active gym after 25 minutes, because I felt like my life was seeping away, it was so boring. I hate the gym. Hate hate hate it. I hate the idea of slogging away inside, when the weather is nice outdoors. I hate the idea of ‘working out’ with a bunch of muscle bound men who want to gawp at my sweating, heaving, struggling body, while showing off their massive pecs, as I struggle away picking up a 5kg weight.
