Self-assessments

Not sure where your climbing is going? Overwhelmed by a thousand instagram posts suggesting a million different things you should go do right now to get better at climbing? It’s not just you. We live in an age of overwhelming information. One of the best things I can do as a coach is help you cut through the noise and figure out what to do with your climbing.

I can use the results from the assessment and consult to produce a training brief that will give you physical, technical and emotional next steps to take to improve your climbing.

Alternatively I can use it to create a full-blown training plan for 8-12 weeks that you can coach yourself through.

The assessment might be for you if:
  • You’re at a plateau, and not sure what to work on
  • You have a limited or unpredictable schedule, but you still want to progress
  • You’re happy putting together your own day-to-day training, but you need help organizing your year
  • You’re not ready to commit to one-on-one, and you want to try training with me
What is in the assessment?

The assessment is very thorough, and I’m always updating it. Some climbers tell me they got a lot out of just assessing themselves. Here’s an outline of what the assessment will ask about:

  • Where you’re at: your climbing trajectory & goals
  • Your technical profile
  • Your emotional control
  • Your physical abilities (including numbers if you have them handy – there’s no testing component involved in the assessment itself!)
  • Your climbing social life
  • Videos of you climbing, if possible – these are really helpful for me to suggest drills!
  • … and more

After the assessment, we’ll meet over Zoom (or in person if you’re in the Wenatchee area) to go over the details before I provide a training brief or plan.

What’s in the training brief?
  • A summary of you as a climber, your biggest gaps or blind spots, and what the path is from where you’re at to your goals
  • What to focus on to bring your goals into reach, and what to let go of

The brief may also contain some or all of these, depending on your self-assessment:

  • Strength training suggestions based on your numbers and level
  • Technical drills based on your movement style and weaknesses
  • How to structure your weeks, months or year, depending on the scale of your goals
  • Other homework: books to read, coaches to follow, and “real life stuff” like nutrition, sleep and habit improvement
What’s in the training plan?

The training plan is a weekly planner including what sessions to do each week. It’ll include all the same things as the brief, but organized into a structure for you to cut down on the guesswork. You’ll still get all the high-level philosophical stuff from the brief, as well.
