I tried Harry Styles’ go-to workout – and reckon it’s the most fun yet effective sweat session I’ve tried in a while

As someone who writes about fitness for a living, I spend a lot of time working out. That said, I’ve always shied away from trying bouldering for beginners. Maybe it’s the image of outdoorsy guys in their gorpcore gear, critiquing my form and mansplaining the “beta” (a technical word for the best way up the wall), but something’s kept me from spending my Saturday mornings sipping flat whites at my local climbing spot.

But if there’s one man who can influence me into stepping out of my comfort zone, it’s Harry Styles. The Daylight singer was photographed back in 2019, chalk bag in hand, at a London climbing centre, and rumours have it that he’s still a big fan of the sport. And he’s not alone – the hashtag #bouldering has racked up an impressive 21 million views on TikTok, with everyone from Florence Pugh to Jared Leto expressing their love for the workout.
