Physical training sessions

Rock climbing and bouldering requires a unique combination of power for explosive movements, endurance to sustain you through long climbs, and a stable core to help you climb better and more efficiently. We have created a brand new series of coaching sessions designed to help you get the most out of your body and unlock your climbing potential. Book via the widget at the bottom of this page.

1. Endurance Session

Endurance is extremely important for any rock climber as it will help your body sustain a high level of output while moving up the wall, it will also help you recover at rests along a route. Any good climber has a good base endurance, it means you are less prone to injury and can have longer days at the crag. This workshop aims to teach you the importance of endurance climbing, how to effectively train in and most importantly, when to train it!

2. Power- endurance Session

If you would like to push your sport climbing grade, or increase your bouldering grade then correctly training your power endurance will help you get to the next level. It will help you through sustained long cruxy sections on sport routes. Or stop you powering out towards the end of boulder problems. This course helps you understand the intricacies of power endurance and how to correctly train it.

3. Core and conditioning session

A strong core and good base strength should be a feature of any successful climbers weekly workout. Do you find it hard to keep your feet on the wall, especially on steep ground? Do you find overhanging walls hard? It is likely that your core and general body conditioning is letting you down. That means this is the perfect course for you! A strong core will stabilize and support your body, general conditioning will make you less prone to injury and increase your pulling power.

4. Power session

Though having excellent technique will help you climb hard, there will become a point especially in bouldering when you need more power to complete a move. Power is also important in sport climbing as the stronger you are, the easier you will find the moves on the routes. This workshop looks to develop different ways in which you can train power effectively and safely.
