Experience matters! The ability to assess a climber’s movement, identifying skills and deficiencies; to know a climber’s training needs; to recognize limitations, mental and physical … These are talents that Wills and Lisa have developed through scores of years coaching and climbing. Wills recognized his talent for getting results, when coaching his wife Lisa Rands to world number one in competitive bouldering. Quickly moving from also-ran to Open National Champion, then on to International Champion, Lisa learned first-hand that being the best requires honest assessment, heaps of motivation, AND a good coach.
As skilled coaches Lisa and Wills can recognize weaknesses in a climber’s ability, push the climbers to address those weaknesses through choice of climbs/moves and offer movement pointers. They also address posture and flexibility issues in climbers. Many climbers don’t realize that bad posture or flexibility is restricting their climbing. Where necessary, they will target these issues with stretches and exercises specific to the individual.
