If you are looking for a cool gift for rock climbing enthusiasts the ClimbStation could be the perfect item.
The ClimbStation is the latest exercise device for thrill seekers because it helps imitate actual rock climbing.
In terms of specs it is 150 cm wide with 90 moveable holds. Perhaps the coolest thing about the ClimbStation is that it can tilt anywhere from +15 to -30 degrees.
Implications - The ClimbStation is like being on a treadmill at an angle. Its top speed is 17 meters per minute. If you are just a beginner, the machine will automatically adjust its speed for you. There is padding that sits underneath you just in case you have a little spill.
