Climbing Coaching

" Coaching is  a real passion for me. Learning to communicate, observe and teach in a way that gets the absolute best out of people is hugely satisfying. I coach individuals, couples and small groups, whilst also coaching regularly for the Women's Climbing Symposium and on Rock and Sun climbing holidays. "

Climbing is an adventure sport that has evolved over time, and there has been an enormous development in standards, disciplines, equipment and facilities in recent years. Traditionally, training and coaching has been minimal and often disregarded, the assumption being that the more climbing you do, the better you get, and the more pull ups you do, the stronger you get!
Those assumptions have now changed, with climbers realising the benefits of coaching at any stage of their climbing career. The exciting expansion of our sport and the increase in quality training facilities has developed much more quality coaching and training. 
Focused movement coaching, training advice and mental coaching will vastly increase your rate of development, enjoyment of the sport and decrease your chances of injury. Regardless of your grade or experience, I seek to help people climb smart as well as strong. I listen, observe and coach in a way which will enable you to maximise your climbing potential, always catering tuition specifically to you. 
- Coaching sessions will generally be 2 - 3 hours, and can be arranged as a one off or series of sessions
- We will discuss your climbing history, desired areas of improvement and aspirations prior to your coaching session, and cater all tuition specific to you
- Coaching can be indoors or outdoors, but often indoors allows for more coaching content to be covered in the time.
