Why use a coach?
To train better, to avoid injury and stay healthy, to maximize your time, to learn the science of climbing, to get an outside perspective, to overcome a plateau.
Can you help outdoors? In comps?
I can certainly help you identify weaknesses, get stronger, last longer, and climb better. But non-competitive indoor climbing is my specialty, so if your personal hurdles are very outdoor-specific (e.g. you need to up your crack climbing technique) or comp-specific (you suck at triple paddle dynos) I'll recommend you someone else.
I climb harder grades than you do. Can you help me?
Do Adam Ondra and Janja Garnbret use coaches? 😉
"Jon has become an indispensable help for my climbing progress. With his fun, hands-on and deep approach, he has contributed heavily to my success as a climber. Jon’s reflections have made a huge impact on topping routes I previously considered out of my league."

"Jon really digs into the subtleties and he takes this great approach to his climbing of trying to break things down, trying to become a better climber rather than just a stronger climber."
