Location and rates:
Neil uses the Lakeland Climbing Centre (Kendal Wall) as his base for 1-to-1 coaching. His hourly rates are £60 for 1-to-1s, £80 for 1-to-2s and £90 for small groups, sized 3 - 4 people. He occasionally coaches in other parts of the UK, subject to his schedule but please note that rates may vary to reflect travel time. Neil runs a personalised training programme service for those who are unable to access his 1-to-1 coaching. See this site for more info.
Indoor coaching sessions - what to expect:
A typical 1-to-1 session with Neil will last for 2 hours, during which time he will assess your strengths and weaknesses by examining everything from your technique and mental performance to your strength and endurance. Neil frequently uses video analysis and a benchmarking system to validate his findings. He will then outline your best strategy to make improvements. A one-off session can work well or you may decide to meet again for follow-ups, subject to budgets, time constraints and so on. Neil will always issue you with an overview of your training requirements but a more detailed programme can be arranged for an additional fee (£60 for 2 months, £70 for 3 months, £80 for 4 months).
If you aren’t a member of the wall then please allow time to join and pay for entry at reception before the start of the session. Please do not attempt to pay the wall for your coaching session. Please pay Neil at the end with cash or cheque, or we can send payment details if you’d prefer to pay in advance. No deposit is required but please see our cancellation policy.
