Last few weeks of training for our September Team... Incredible!

We are nearly there with the ReAch September Team, with just a few weeks left, it has been great seeing the ups and downs and back UPs again! Training for 4 months consistently is not easy, I know.

Sport science is ever changing and only some data seems to carry forward into the next generation of research as 'credible'... We use various training methods specializing in Dual Factor but for me, what makes the ReAch Training Program 'credible' is having someone watching how you are doing during the program period and this is the whole center for my coaching.

Back in GB
It is not that I am a better climber ( I have climbed 8a+ so far since returning in 2010 and am proud but like you, I want more! 8b is killing me, but I have a plan!) but I think I understand the motivational drivers and need for support when things can get a bit tougher.

So here is to my September Team : Matt, Chris, Duncan, Joanne...Nearly THERE! :)

Referrals from clients:

"...This training season I decided to get all the help I can to speed up my improvement. I needed guidance to work towards my goals in long term. I also needed more vision and opinions about my exercises and weak links. I am glad I can share my training with Mark..." (Ville Mustonen, Finland)

" I met Mark in Glen Nevis on his return to climbing to check out some lines he had in mind for me, I wasn't really training at this point but after a day or two talking and training with him I had a much more structured idea of what to do to improve and I did" (Kev Shields)
