What sports do you play, anons? I’ve been getting back into rock climbing.

Anonymous 15304

Right now, gymnastics only. I hope to get back into martial arts soon. I want to start lessons in ballet, horse riding, yoga, and pilates.

I used to hate all sports because I associated it so much with high school. So many memories of being in pain, feeling humiliated, and not being able to stop when I needed. However, I’ve now started to see it as a way of learning new skills and not focus on trying to get fit or anything. There are so many things I want to try.

I have the same mindset anon. If I got back into climbing solely to lose weight, I wouldn’t enjoy it. Just trying to find rock climbing buddies now because I have no friends. So that’s kind of stressful.

Could you ask at the place you climb if they know a way to meet someone? Or see if there are any Facebook groups in your area? Or put a note on a noticeboard?

I found out about a female climbers group chat! There is a noticeboard at my gym too. I wish climbing was a solo sport but my gym doesn’t allow that.

I can’t do pull ups! My arm strength is pretty weak actually. I haven’t been able to do any rock climbing walls that involve using pure arm strength (like picrel).

I've started poledancing on a whim and it was really fun. But I stopped because I really don't like my body hairs and I want to remove them permanently.

I also really like swimming but again, because of my body hairs and the fact that the pool tend to not be open at accessibles hours for me make it difficult.

I also used to do wall climbing and I loved it a lot, but I don't have a climbing place near me and I don't see myself doing it alone since I need a partner to support me while I climb.

So for now, I'm sticking to daily walks when I go to work. Because between the subway station and my workplace I have a good 20 mins by foot. And that keeps me relatively healthy which is really nice. I also slightly changed my diet and lost a bit of weight.

Rock climbing sounds really nice, I would love to do some if I could find a place near me

I know, but I do.

Don't really have the patience and in some places when it grows back, it hurts like hell. I'm also quite prone to Ingrow hair so no thanks.

before the pandemic I did BJJ but I try not to roll with guys because… yeah… they are stronger and it doesn't really help because I will always compete against women

Oh cool!! I just started BJJ! What belt level did you get to? I tried finding women's-only gyms but couldn't find any (fine with me as long as there are other women in the class).

isn't it possible for womento beat guys at bjj? i tought the whole point of the martial art was that you can use leverage and technique to make up for a lack of strenght

Yes, I've read BJJ is good for women because it isn't heavily strength-based. Didn't stop men on the internet from telling me to quit because they "still could rape me" even if I knew BJJ. Well fuck them, I'm gonna keep training.
