Don’t have time to go to the gym? Here’s a great way to break some sweat – indoors!

Having health-conscious friends, I’ve been bullied into a gym membership when I was in my 20s. It was a fun experience. But as much as I want to continue doing it, I just don’t have the time anymore. I have three kids. In-between cooking dinner, play dates, ballet classes, and soccer games, going to the gym is out of the question.

Both kids and adults will surely love this.

One day, I mentioned to my husband that I’m running out of breath even with the simplest exertion. I gained some weight, too. Because I have no time to go to the gym, my husband did the sweetest thing for me. He made me an indoor climbing wall so I could “sweat it out everyday.”

Now there really is no excuse not to get fit, right? I must say, the project was a hit – with me, the kids, and our friends. We get a lot of visitors nowadays, people who want to try our indoor climbing wall.  You’ll love this, for sure!
