Session Details

Designed to help you become more efficient at training the different demands within a specific sport or activity, sessions will focus on one of the following topics:

Power is crucial in rock climbing to generate big moves and to latch holds. Learn how to target our explosive energy system, the muscle fibers associated with it, proper work-to-rest ratios for maximizing performance, as well as what to include (or avoid) in a warm up for optimum power output.

These sessions will focus on the various forms of movement each of our joints are responsible for, how to maintain and progress range of motion, the relationship between stability & mobility, and how to cater your mobility strategy to best prepare you for climbing and other activities in your life.
