Coaching

As well as being an international boulderer (and many other things!) i am also a part time climbing movement coach.

With a medium such as this website, this allows me two opportunities: to selflessly try and plug my services to those in search of a coach and to share various articles written about the coaching of climbing.

Hiring Me As A Coach

Our sister site, Prowess Climbing Coaching, is now up and running and has full details of my offering as a climbing coach.

Articles

Meanwhile, i have a series of coaching related articles to hopefully help climbers and coaches alike. These are often a wide array of subjects but differ from the usual articles in that they tend to focus on a specific subject related to coaching or self improvement.

I’ve broken it down into two categories: articles for coaches and articles climbers. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a huge crossover but it does enable someone looking to improve themselves to narrow down which pieces to read to maximise their own performance.

Articles for coaches
  • HOT, POT and MOT. A complicated and interesting set of theories based on making the most of the holds, positions and movements involved when coaching.
  • A Moment On The Lips, A Lifetime on The Hips. A long winded title, this is all about the importance of teaching trunk rotation to climbers.
  • Floor Exercises and How Crucial They Really Are. This piece looks at how to simplify complicated climbing techniques by removing the climber from the complex situation they are in and replicating the movement in a simpler way for them to understand.
  • The DCBA ScaleThis article looks at getting the best out of the mentality of your climber.
