Have you ever thought about doing an indoor ropes course but your fear of heights or your lack of confidence is holding you back? What if we told you that completing an indoor ropes course like Climb Vegas is an incredible way to build confidence. Rope courses can ben build confidence in both adults and adolescents as they go through a series of course elements that require different mental and physical skills. Here’s how!
What Is an Indoor Ropes Course?
An indoor ropes course is an indoor elevated course where participants go through a series of rope challenges while suspended in the air. At Climb Vegas, we boast 17 different rope elements over 3 different levels where visitors can challenge themselves across balance beams, tight-ropes, and rope ladders. An indoor ropes course can be a perfect family fun activity that also helps build up your confidence.
Using Adventure Therapy to Build Yourself Up
One way that rope courses can build confidence in children, teens, and adults is by helping them confront their fears. The most common fear associated with elevated ropes courses is the fear of heights. This is not surprising when you consider that rope courses can be 2 stories or higher.
Naturally, routinely confronting fears, challenges, and situations head-on has a way of helping you develop confidence, self-esteem, and other characteristics that are important for personal development.
When people use ropes courses and other physical activities as a form of building up their mental strength it is known as adventure therapy. Studies have linked “adventure therapy” such as ropes courses as a solution for a wide array of issues such as:
- Teamwork and Cooperation
- Willingness to Trust and Accept Help
- Relationship Building
- Fine Motor Skills
- Attitude and Outlook
- Mind-Body Connection
Do Something Challenging
Have you ever heard the expression, “if you aren’t living on the edge, you’re taking up too much room?” While we may not be psychologists by any stretch of the imagination, but we do believe that there is something to be said for challenging yourself every single day. When you challenge yourself to attempt things that you have inhibitions about, whether they are physical, have to do with heights, or just about getting out of your comfort zone, it allows you to continue to grow as a person.
