Over the years we've written hundreds of training plans for climbers of a wide range of abilities, and until recently, they were always on paper (or digital paper, anyway!). For our Ebooks, we take the most effective of those plans, and with a few modifications meant to target a very specific type of climber, we put them out there in the world for a ridiculously low price. These Ebooks are very similar in scope to the starting templates we use for our Mobile App training, minus the app, customization, and the coach interaction. If you're self motivated, and just need some direction when you're in the gym, these plans are what you're looking for! There are dozens to choose from, and if you aren't sure which one is for you, contact us and we'd be happy to help you choose.
IN PERSON COACHING
While our training plans are great and give you the most bang for your buck, there is really no substitute for working one on one with a coach. Our process is simple: The first session, the Assessment, is always observation and conversation, so that we can learn more about you and get to know your climbing style. As we notice things, we may direct you to do specific moves, problems, or routes, and we may ask you to try them a certain way, but there will be little instruction. Think of this as a setup session so that future sessions can be more productive. This session takes an hour for boulders, 2 hours for routes. After this session, we work in 1 hour blocks, with 1 or 2 people at a time, and focus our sessions on learning new techniques, running drills to shore up weaknesses, and discussing training and tactics that will help you reach your goals.
To create our popular Proven Plans, we've taken our time tested and proven Ebooks, uploaded them into our mobile app, and given them important updates, such as our new movement drills and training techniques. What that creates is an extremely effective training template for a specific level of climber. Available for iPhone and Android, our Proven Plans are delivered with video and detailed descriptions for the drills, as well as optional direct communication with your coach. We can also make small adjustments to the plan based on your available equipment, if necessary. The plans are perfect for climbers who have fairly common needs and don't require a full custom plan. If you're unsure, contact us, and we can help you decide if a Proven Plan is right for you.
Video Analysis can be a great option if you aren't able to work one on one with a coach or trainer, but want to have your movement skills analyzed so that you can better know where to focus your efforts on improvement. Whether or not you train with us, we'll be happy to take a look at, and record an analysis for, any video you have. Through video, we can often spot issues in movement and technique, as well as how you approach a given objective. We then record a voice analysis over your video, utilizing tools such as slow motion playback and draw over devices to show you exactly what we're seeing, and give you tips and advice on how to go about working on the issues and inconsistencies we see in your climbing.
COST: $30.00 for up to 5 minutes of video, resulting in an analysis that is usually between 1.5 to 2x the length of the original.
Available as 6 or 12 Week programs, our Custom Plans are perfect for climbers who aren't sure where next to focus their time and energy, or who perform better with someone to be accountable to. Available for iPhone and Android, our mobile app was born out of a need for a better delivery and communication system with our clients. We get to know you and your climbing through conversation and an extensive consultation form. After we've built your plan, it's delivered to you via our mobile app, complete with exercise videos and direct messaging to your coach. We'll be able to see your notes and your workout data, and can make adjustments to the plan based on this, and more important, on your subjective feedback. If you need a plan for a different length, contact us.
Whether you're having trouble pinning down how to structure your training, or want to talk tactics on the long time project that won't seem to go down, a Skype or Phone Consultation might be the thing you need. Basically, we can talk about whatever you want our opinions, suggestions or expertise to help with.
COST: $30.00 per 30 minutes.
