Training for Climbing

“The first time I did any kind of structured training program was prior to a two month trip to South Africa's Rocklands. This turned out to be a watershed experience for me because my performance on rock far exceeded anything that I had done before that and it was so obvious what the only difference had been,” said Alarcon.  

Beginning March 19th, Alarcon will be holding a 6 week intensive climbing workshop designed to motivate and train climbers interested in climbing specific training.

“This workshop will be focused teaching climbers how to structure their training to further their own goals. Some of the material is very general in that it can be applied to most climbers regardless of their goals, but some of the material will be tailored to the individuals to address their specific strengths and weaknesses,” said Alarcon. “We'll spend time on the wall, in the weight room and maybe even some time on the basketball court.”


“My goal in doing this workshop is simply to introduce motivated climbers to the tools they'll need to structure a climbing and training routine based around meeting their own climbing objectives. The benefits of this workshop will extend well beyond its six week duration.”

Don’t make the same mistakes that thousands of climbers have made by overtraining, training incorrectly, or simply by not training at all.   Sign up for Alarcon’s climbing training workshop
