The Game: Wall Climbing
Wall climbing is usually performed on an artificially constructed wall with grips for hands and feet. It attempts to mimic the experience of real rock climbing but in a more controlled environment. There are different routes with different levels of difficulty for you to finish at your own pace.

The Goal: Wall climbing is a sport that is good for both mind and body. It will help develop a sense of trust, teamwork, and communication between you and your partner. Physically, it is known to improve strength, balance, flexibility, and muscular endurance. It usually takes five to six weeks to see and feel the benefits of this challenging yet empowering sport.

Why It's Fun: Wall climbing provides a medium for people who are looking to challenge themselves. Assessing risks and exploring comfort zones on your journey up the wall will allow you and your guy to reach new heights and experience greater adventures together.

The Game: Boxing
Boxing is a sport that involves the use of your fists. There are four basic punches to learn that can be combined to form combos. These punches are: the jab, cross, hook, and uppercut.

Most classes usually involve running, abdominal crunches, light hand weight exercises, the use of a speed ball, and working on a punching bag. All the activities are done with a trainer or partner.

Why It's Fun: Training with a partner provides a serious boost of motivation, increases your confidence, and gives a sense of discipline to stay committed to the tough sport.

The Game: Biking
Biking is a popular form of recreation you and your boy can do. Before starting on your journey, test ride the bike to find out if it is safe and comfortable. This is important as to avoid any future injuries.
