TRAINING & COACHING
If you want to climb hard, you need to train hard – that’s not necessarily true. Becoming a better climber isn’t a matter of maximum input and workload, but rather a matter of training specifically and smart. Most climbers however get stuck in their quest to becoming the strongest – instead of becoming the best climber they can be. Strength obviously plays a central role in climbing, but do you really think that strongman competitors are able to climb Adam Ondra’s 9c Silence? No, because you will also need technique, skill, power endurance, strength endurance – to only name a few.
Toti, former coach of the Spanish climbing national team will help you sort through the maze of truly effective training and will provide specific coaching and detailed training plans to help you reach your goals. We also offer clinics for those of you, who just want to enjoy climbing or improve their mental game.

We love being multi-disciplinary athletes. The vast variety of climbing styles in this sport is what makes it so much fun. But, as Betty Friedan once said, “You can have it all, just not all at the same time”. It’s possible to get better in different climbing disciplines at the same time, but it makes steady progression more difficult, and can flatline performance.
Our training plans are based on 4-week cycles, include antagonist work, skill and technique drills, and are tailored to the specific climbing discipline you’d like to excel in: Sport/route climbing, or bouldering. We additionally offer a Finger Strength program, that revolves around effective hangboarding and strength gains.
