If you’re not assessing, you’re only guessing.
Assessments are incredibly useful for determining current ability and level across the wide array of skills necessary for successful climbing performance. There are many complex skills and movement patterns associated with climbing that can slip through the cracks if you don’t assess them.
Most assessments target aerobic and anaerobic capacity, strength, and power. While these areas are important to assess, movement during performance and technical skill are addressed less in climbing. The problem is that many climbers don’t know how to improve their own movement with the current strength and power that they possess.
This is why I provide a remote climbing movement assessment. It helps to highlight what your strengths are and what weaknesses you can work on in a broader, more holistic sense. This is how movement assessment is different than movement analysis. Assessment is similar to a broad “report card” and analysis like a specific “exam”.
This remote climbing movement assessment is good for you if:
The climbing movement assessment requires you to film yourself climbing in a variety of scenarios (different holds, wall angles, sequences, techniques, etc.). This gives me a good look at how you move on the wall.
The results are provided in a neat and organized PDF with charts, a table, details on the results in each category, as well as suggestions for practice to target areas of weakness.
Following the assessment, we will schedule a 30-minute call to discuss your results and any questions you might have.
