Similar to modern Personal Training, Personal Climbing Coaching is all about providing an absolute focus on YOUR needs specific to climbing. A professional climbing coach is highly qualified and delivers a fully-rounded and personally-tailored package.
On top of assessing different elements of your fitness, such as strength and flexibility, a good coach will devise and deliver a programme totally built around you and your climbing goals. Your coach will also factor in nutrition, injury prevention, and rehabilitation where necessary.
“BUT, Personal Climbing Coaching is so expensive!”
Fees for coaching sessions vary widely. Price is largely dependent on which part of Singapore you live/work. Coaches near central locations often command higher fees due to the convenience of the location of the gyms they coach at. Fees also vary depending on the coach’s knowledge and experience. The more experienced coaches will charge more given the wealth of knowledge they will bring to the planning of your training programme.
Other than price, do consider the other important factors below as you decide whether a Personal Climbing Coaching is for you:
|for you if:||not for you if:|
Additionally, a lot of people choose to spend their money on a few Personal Climbing Coaching sessions a month and then make up the rest of the time with other training such as running or working out at home (which are free). You can consider doing this, too.
That way, you can get an individual climbing programme, have the information on form and technique that you need, and then return a few weeks/months later for another Personal Climbing Coaching sessions to check your progress.
Engaging a Personal Climbing Coach also gives you an incentive to turn up for your session. If you only plan on going to the climbing gym by yourself, it is all too easy to put it off and tell yourself that you will go tomorrow. However, if you know you have a set appointment with your Personal Climbing Coach, then chances are you won’t miss it.
Another way to look at it is if you are consistently spending money on gym membership and failing to make full use of the facility, then it might be time to consider paying a little more and investing in a Personal Climbing Coach who will help you reach your climbing goals, as well as your health and fitness goals.
“I’m still not sure if Personal Climbing Coaching is for me…”
Only you can decide if you feel that a Personal Climbing Coach can help you towards your goals. However, in making your decision, consider what you want to achieve, how you think you can get there and whether you need a certain level of expertise to achieve your aims.
Finance is certain to influence your decision, but remember that a Personal Climbing Coach is an investment to your well-being. Whatever your conclusions are, expert advice on climbing techniques, strength conditioning, mobility, and flexibility, wrapped up in a service that is professional, motivational and customized, makes a formidable package that will help you climb better.
