Common questions

How can I pay?

Cash, debit and credit cards as well as most recreational vouchers and cards are accepted. Groups agree beforehand to pay either on site or by invoice.

Does parking cost?

Academill’s car park before our premises has unlimited parking. In addition, there are plenty of unlimited roadside parking spaces nearby, and there is also a sand parking lot on the other side of the silos. NOTE! During office hours, parking spaces may be full.

Do you have an age limit?

A child under the age of 14 must always be accompanied by a guardian if he or she is not with the group or involved in activities designed for children. In addition, a 14- to 17-year-old must have a written permission from a parent if the parent is not present.

How long can I stay during a visit?

As long as you want, or as much as the fingers and muscles can endure. You can even hang out on the couch for a while and go for on a new round with renewed vigor.

Can I bring a friend with a member key?

The member key is always personal. It is not allowed to bring anyone else inside our premises with it. Abuse always results in at least termination of membership and a possible fine, depending on the situation. So make sure your friends come to visit us when customer service is open.

Do you work with other local actors?

Cooperation is everything for us. We are happy to work with local businesses, clubs and communities. If you have any ideas, please contact us!

Climbing

Do you need an appointment or equipment to come climbing?

Not necessary. You can visit us whenever customer service is open. There is always a person at the counter to help you get started with climbing. You can also rent or buy climbing shoes and other gear from us.

When can I climb the roped walls?

If you haven’t taken a beginner’s course, you can climb on our autobelay walls independently or be belayed on top rope by someone who has the permission to belay you. After taking the top rope basic course and gaining sufficient skills, you can also belay a friend yourself. Those who have completed the course elsewhere must have an official belay card or take a belay test.

How much can ropes and anchors withstand?

If hippos were made their own climbing harnesses, they too could climb. Ropes and anchors therefore withstand a large amount of weight. They are also regularly inspected, replaced and maintained, so all equipment always stays in good condition.

Can I climb with my own shoes?

Climbing walls always require climbing shoes. Their structure and bottom are specifically designed for climbing, so that their grip is the most optimal. Using them also prevents dirt and small rocks getting in to the area and mattresses.

What kind of clothes are good?

Flexible and breathable indoor exercise clothing is good for climbing. For hygienic reasons, socks are always used in rental shoes.

Can I rent equipment on site?

You can rent climbing gear, such as climbing shoes, harness, belay device, lead rope and a chalk bag, from us. You can also easily buy your own equipment for boulder, walls and outdoors from our shop.

OCR

Do I need an appointment to try OCR?

Not necessary. You can come to us whenever customer service is open. There is always a person in customer service to help you get started. Please note, that the track might be reserved for a course or class. Please check the booking calendar first!

Can I train on the OCR track independently?

You can always train independently on the OCR track, even if you have not attended a course. However, you should take part in the course immediately if you are interested in the sport, because you will get tips on the right technique and an effective, safe workout. You will also get access to the King/Queen of the Mill ramp after the course.

What equipment do I need for the track?

It gets really intensive, so flexible and breathable indoor sportswear is best in OCR. In addition, you will need your own indoor exercise shoes and a large water bottle. Gloves are also helpful if your skin is sensitive.

Who is OCR suitable for?

For you who want to experience accomplishments and push your limits through a holistic form of exercise. OCR challenges both body and mind, and together with the instructor, you can safely practice the right techniques. If you’re interested in the sport, check out also our classes and courses!

How does an athlete benefit from OCR?

OCR is such a versatile workout that it is both challenging and beneficial for active enthusiasts and competitive athletes. OCR puts the whole body at work, and also challenges the mind, which is the most important resource for an athlete.

OCR season is approaching, what do I do?

First of all, you are in the right place! With our Toughest certified instructors, you will achieve your goals. You can take part in Toughest Training classes, which consist of Toughest’s three obstacle categories: Move, Grip and Strength. Ask also for private classes!

Acroyoga

For who is acroyoga good for?

Acroyoga is suitable for any person with good basic health looking for a social, varied and communal activity. If you have problems with your support organs, such as knees, shoulders or back, we recommend that you talk with the instructor first.

What equipment do I need?

The acroyoga poses are done with the support of a friend. Therefore a firm grip on the body is important. Moves often involve spinning, twisting, and being upside down, so you may prefer tight rather than loose clothing.

Do I need a pair to join a class or course?

No, but of course you can come and have fun with a friend or spouse, for example. We vary pairs and roles during classes and course so that everyone can train on their own level as diversely as possible.

Is acroyoga safe?

We always have at least three members in one group: the base, the flyer and the spotter. The base holds the flyer up, and the spotter supports the flyer and makes sure he/she doesn’t fall. It is important to always follow the instructor’s advice during classes and courses. We always prefer to do recaps rather than put a novice enthusiast to do too difficult poses!

Can I come to an acroyoga class without an appointment?

We always train in small groups to ensure that all participants receive support and advice from the instructor. Therefore, it is important to register for classes and courses in advance. However, you can come and ask just before the start of the class if there is room left, and you can hop in if there is!

I have issues with my body, what do I do?

Acroyoga requires some basic fitness, as the moves include a lot of twists, stretches, and poses that strain the joints. If you have problems with, for example, your knee, shoulder or back, please talk to your instructor first. You can also make different variations of several moves according to the limitations of your own body.

Classical Pilates

Who is classic Pilates suited for for?

Classical Pilates is great for everyone from rehabilitators to athletes. Pilates can be used to rehabilitate a sore back, stretch the body that has become stagnant from sitting, improve the musculoskeletal system of an active exerciser, or prevent sports injuries. If you have an acute or severe injury, please contact your instructor first.

What equipment do I need?

It is good to have flexible, breathable and body-tight clothing. This way, the clothes do not limit your moves and the instructor can properly see the position of your body. Inside the studio we always wear at least socks on the feet. We especially recommend socks with a friction sole. These you can also buy in our store.

Do I need to book a place for the class?

We always train in small groups to ensure that all participants receive support and advice from the instructor. Therefore, it is important to register for classes and courses in advance. However, you can come and ask just before the start of the class if there is room left, and you can hop in if there is!

Can I be sure to get individual guidance?

Classes are held in small groups, so each participant gets help. We also have private classes, where we use our Pilates apparatuses to gain the maximum benefit of the workout. Content of the private classes is built entirely according to the level and needs of the client.

Is classical Pilates beneficial for an athlete?

Indeed. Several competitive dancers, track and field athletes, climbers and many other athletes have included classical Pilates in their training program as it keeps the supportive muscles in shape and prevents sports injuries. It’s also an efficient way to spot your weak muscles and direct workout for them.

I have issues with my body, what do I do?

Classical Pilates is also great for rehabilitators. Moves can be made in different variations according to the limitations of your body, and women at the postpartum stage get great help in restoring and strengthening their abdominal muscles. Always talk to your instructor about your problems first so that they can be taken into account.
