Training Strategies at ReAch...

The ReAch Dual Factor Training Programme works along the principle of developing your power first and the maintaining of it second. So instead of performing a high volume of training at a low intensity you perform a low volume of training at a high intensity.This means a much more productive return from your training because you can't perform high intensity exercise as often as low intensity exercise. This will free up valuable days of your week.

Our innovative programme encourages you to cut out large volumes of aerobic training (except to upload towards a 'fatigue peak'). Instead you head straight into the high intensity endurance based workouts after maximal strength and power have been achieved. Its time efficient and mimics the energy requirements of our sport, allowing you to follow a more focused and rewarding programme

Dr Bott...

I've been lucky enough to be coaching and training with the Doc. I don't coach many people these days on a 1 to 1 but I have always made friends with those I do. The Doc is inspirational in her pursuit to get rock climbing fit for Mexico at end of the year. A Phd and all round cool dude and new friend, it has been great working with the Doc and a big thank you from me for helping me with my own research and Phd application. Fingers crossed Doc!

He tenido la suerte de estar coaching y entrenamiento con el doctor. Yo no entreno muchas personas en estos días en un 1 a 1, pero siempre me he hecho amigos con los que hago. El doctor es inspirador en su búsqueda de conseguir escalada en fuerte para un viaje de roca de México a finales de año.  Una Phd y nuevo amigo, ha sido genial trabajar con el doctor y un gran agradecimiento de mi parte por ayudarme con mi propia investigación y aplicación Phd. Dedos cruzados doctor!

The Doc and my surfing landlady!

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)
