    Not that I`m an expert on gyms but haven`t these been around a while.

    I would think it would get old a lot faster. You aren`t moving and looking around as much for a place to grab. It wouldn`t be as challenging.

    Wouldn`t it be the same pattern over and over?

    Isn`t that cheating if you the ones you should grab are marked with yellow tape?

    "Wouldn`t it be the same pattern over and over?"

    Ya. I`m not saying it would be good rock climbing training, but it would be a hell of a workout, especially with the adjustable incline.

    Also available in Germany.

    Although he`s doing it wrong, pick a colour and stick to it rather than grabbing anything going...

    i think people would just get bored with this, all the fun in climbing is trying to get to the top or as high as you can get.

    I suggest 2 improvements:
    1. Someone on the back side changing the holds around.
    2. Electric grid on floor to discourage letting go.

    I`ve had jobs like that. Strive as hard as you like, you will never reach the top. The old-fashioned glass ceiling is now obsolete.

    I think you guys are missing my point.

    I`m not talking about a challenge or climbing training.

    I`m talking about a workout, like a treadmill or stationary bike.

    Bastards probably put the controls at the top of the device!
