1:1 Coaching with Gavin Kelly - GB Paraclimbing mindset and performance coach.


1:1 coaching can be an awesome investment in time and effort to develop your climbing.  Most climbing coaches will focus on giving you tools techniques and exercises that will develop your climbing ability and strength therefore becoming a better climber. 


Having a complete set of tools doesn't make you a craftsman.


What is subtly different about my coaching is that we will start with your capacity to understand and become accutely aware of your own climbing; what motivates you, how you think and respond in various climbing situations. As you develop your awareness you will find it easy to choose the tools and techniques that suit you for any situation you encounter - and so in the long term will require less coaching.  Naturally you will expand your toolbox as your requirement for new skils and techniques develop, but the emphasis will always be on how to be a master at your craft!


1:1 coaching is by arrangement, please contact us.
