CLMBR targets at-home fitness market with connected vertical climber

By

Connected fitness tech specialist CLMBR is looking to tap into the booming at-home fitness market with the launch of a connected vertical climber.

Featuring an integrated, large format display, CLMBR Connected will feature a new design aspect – it is free of the typical central shaft found on other climbers.

The open design is intended to allow the user to look out and maintain correct body position without being inches away from the monitor.

Users will be able to take part in group climbing classes through an on-demand CLMBR library and community-based challenges.

An integrated audio system will enhance the user experience and eliminate the need to buy expensive speakers for at-home use.

There will also be a companion app to display key metrics, including vertical feet climbed and workout targets reached.

"Unlike bikes, treadmills, and rowers, CLMBR offers a natural body position that provides less impact on the joints while also providing the most efficient calorie burn per minute of any machine in the marketplace," said Avrum Elmakis, founder and CEO of CLMBR.

As well as the Connected model designed for homes, the company will also launch a commercial version, called CLMBR Pure.

The CLMBR Pure commercial model features a smaller touch display that comes with engaging guided climbs and climbing challenges.

It also displays metrics such as total vertical feet climbed, elevation, power, tempo, and unique notifications when workout targets have been reached. The progress-tracking element aims to keep people motivated and help add to the user experience.

The on-demand content for CLMBR Connected will be made available for US$39.99 monthly subscription fee. The commercial CLMBR Pure will have a US$99 per year subscription, which allows for over-the-air app and content updates.

Pre-orders have now been made available and the first CLMBR equipment is expected to be delivered in early 2021.

"CLMBR is unique in that it will provide end-users with an incredibly efficient, effective, and safe workout, all combined with the ability to reference useful metrics and participate in live climbing classes to stay accountable and track progress over time," said Christa Dellebovi, director of training and education at CLMBR.
