Who can benefit from coaching? - The simple answer is everyone
However there is still a common misconception that coaching is just for elite climbers, when the reality is that the biggest benefits of coaching is actually for beginners.
A good grounding in climbing movement, route reading and basic physical and mental training sets you up to progress faster with less bad habits and less to unravel at a later stage.
Climbing has generally lagged behind other sports in its approach to coaching and recognising the importance of basic coaching at an early stage of your climbing career.

Bespoke 1:1 Coaching
During your initial 1.5 hour analysis your coach will be watching you climb on a variety of routes or problems to assess your climbing. Together we will be finding out information to pin down your technical, tactical, physical and psychological strengths and weaknesses in order to help you achieve your short and long term climbing goals.
Your coach will give you constructive feedback on how you can improve your overall climbing performance and at the end of the session you will have personal climbing goals and achievement strategies, this may include a 6-8 week periodised training plan if applicable.
After your analysis session your coach will advise you on any optional follow up sessions, these can be arranged with your coach after the first session.
