Versaclimber launches contra-lateral climbing edition

The new contra-lateral movement pattern now comes as standard across the full range of Versaclimbers

Vertical cardio climbing machine Versaclimber has undergone a makeover, moving from its original up-down climbing pattern of movement to a contra-lateral or crawling pattern.

Contra-lateral movement, also known as cross-crawl, occurs when the arm and leg approach each other on one side of the body, while the opposite arm and leg separate. According to Versaclimber, research has shown that this natural movement is a safer and more effective way of strengthening the para-spinal musculature, and may also help to improve hand-eye coordination.

The new contra-lateral movement pattern now comes as standard across the full range of Versaclimbers. However, the traditional standard climbing pattern still remains available to purchase via special order.

The Versaclimber can also be used alongside an angle bracket, which attaches to a wall, squat or utility rack, allowing users to change their climb pattern from standard upright to horizontal.

Versaclimber managing director Neil Kelford said: "We are really excited to be offering this as an option as we think new users will find it even more intuitive and current users will discover they progress their fitness further, which they then find very rewarding.

"Cross crawl provides a unique alternative to the standard climbing motion where the arms and legs move in unison on both sides of the body.”

The Versaclimber range is the original climbing exercise machine, first originated in the USA where it was developed in 1981. It has now been refined and improved for a new generation of health and fitness enthusiasts.
