This isn’t one size fits all.

There’s more to climbing than generic fitness plans.

Most online online training programs offer cookie-cutter options that focus solely on strength for the masses. With two decades of coaching experience, Coach Sjong knows fitness is just a fraction of one’s overall climbing ability.

Take a second and think about this…

How far can brute strength take your climbing abilities?
Are there specific styles of climbing you’d like to improve in?
How do you manage stress while on the rock?
Do you have a mental framework for scoping climbs before you even start?


Let coach create a holistic improvement plan tailored to your individual goals that tackles not only fitness but technical skills and mental capacity as well.

Training Camps

Are you a coach or gym manager looking for the most efficient way to offer value to your climbers? Training Camps are perfect for raising the intensity level. When athletes train in a group, they can train harder than alone because the “suffer factor” is easier to embrace–maybe even fun. In addition, groups receive short, inspirational lectures. These talks can last from 15 to 30 minutes and we explore climbing concepts in more detail. Coach Sjong offers a variety of training camp styles to suit whats best for your participants.

-The Bouldering & Boards Training Camp zeros in on improving your bouldering skills: power, precision, dynamic movement, mantling, and more.
-The Sharp End Training Camp helps climbers who like to tie in improve their performance with technique and confidence.
-Youth Training Camp gets young athletes excited to try hard and train the way elite climbers train, but in a program designed especially for junior crushers.
