We’re excited to introduce a new type of training program by PG Climbing Team’s Competitive Coaches John and Adriel.  This program targets adult climbers who are interested in small group coaching sessions.  These sessions focus on all areas involved in improving climbing including technique, strength and mental fortitude.  Read on for more information!

Masters Training Sign


What is the Master’s Program?
The masters program is not a typical “class”. It is a place and time where motivated climbers can be coached in a group setting and help motivate one another to accomplish their climbing goals.

Each session is 4 weeks long and meets twice per week. The reason why we came up with this structure was because we both agreed that having focused, goal oriented training/climbing sessions at least twice per week is needed in order to progress and maintain motivation.

Each session is 90 minutes long and will have an optional additional 30 min workout guided by the instructors.


Who can take it?
Anyone that is looking to get better at climbing can take the masters program, although we do encourage participants to be climbing at least 5.10d or V3. Leaders, Top-ropers and Boulderers are welcome.


What will I get out of it?
Advanced coaching and specified climbing workouts to put you on the right track to achieve your goals, and hopefully a sense of community and friendship with your instructors and comrades.


Is it strength or endurance or technique?  What will you focus on?
John and I will touch on all these aspects or climbing because we could all be a little stronger, have more endurance and better technique. Really the specificity depends on the individual and his/her goal. We aim to support strengths as well as develop weaknesses. Our coaching won’t just be limited to the physical aspects of climbing. Taking control and ownership of our feelings and emotions while we climb is just as important. Managing fear, stress, anxiety, confidence and relaxation are just a few areas in we hope to educate.


Can I take it multiple times?  Will it build on itself?
Absolutely. Goals, like our performances, are always changing. John and I hope to make these changes evolutions to progression.


First Session starts Tuesday July 8th.
6:30am-8:00am plus optional 30 minute workout after.
$240 members | $320 non-members
