Eureka Climb, Australia’s biggest tower climb is nearly upon us, November 13!

If you are thinking about doing the stair climb this year but you are unsure, here are some benefits to get you motivated to sign up!

1. QUICKEST WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR CARDIO ENDURANCE

Just 10 mins of stair running is the same benefit as one hour of flat steady state running. This is fantastic for time poor people!

4. BURNS MORE FAT THAN MOST FORMS OF TRAINING

You burn about 0.17 calories for every step you climb, burning roughly a calorie and a half for every 10 upward steps. This works to be over 300 cals for our stair climb!

5. MANY HEALTH BENEFITS

The benefits are endless: improved cardiovascular health, stronger joints and muscles. Stair climbing releases endorphins that produce feelings of well being.
