The Climbing Experience offers a new venue for fitness classes in Maidstone.


The Climbing Experience offers a purpose-built yoga and fitness studio, complete with a range of classes, guaranteed to keep you excited about your workouts.

We offer a beginner’s yoga and pilates classes as flexibility and core strength are key elements for successful and rewarding climbing. As well as helping with flexibility, yoga helps with breathing, stress-reduction, ability to focus, overcoming fears and anxieties, and the prevention of injury. Whether you’re new to yoga or if you’re looking to take your practice to a new level, our classes will elevate your knowledge and uplift your body. 

The yoga and fitness studio at the Climbing Experience offers a range of other fitness classes and lessons; from martial arts to Zumba, we have a class for everyone. Our fitness classes are open to all, whether you climb here or not, and easily accessible by beginners. 

“One does not climb to attain enlightenment, rather one climbs because he is enlightened.”

– Zen Master Futomaki
