Sicily ‘On the Rocks’ with World Expeditions

By | Coaching, Events | No Comments

Happy New Year everyone! Hope 2016 is amazing…

I’m delighted to announce that Simon Carter (hubby) and I have teamed up with World Expeditions to host a climbing trip to Sicily this October. Yes THIS October so make plans now. This fun and interactive climbing trip is set in the idyllic seaside climbing destination of San Vito Lo Capo, which is home to over 1000 routes (mostly sport climbing) covering a wide range of grades. Over the course of this trip, Simon, myself and two local guides will facilitate up to seven days of fun-filled climbing along with personal and group coaching to help you take your climbing to the next level. Rest days will be spent exploring this wonderful Mediterranean destination and doing other activities (paddle boarding, kayaking and cooking classes). You will have ample opportunity to practice your climbing skills and attempt any routes that inspire you. In addition, for those interested, Simon will be eager to discuss techniques of climbing photography and work with anyone interested in improving their photography skills. For further information about this trip click here.

To promote our ‘Sicily on the Rocks’ tour, Simon and I are presenting a National speaking tour in February to Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney. It should be a fun evening so come along and have some laughs, bookings essential.

Recently World Expeditions wanted to get to know me so they asked me a few questions. You can read their ‘On the Couch’ interview with me here and they also did one with Simon, which you can see here.

Happy climbing!

Monique

Limestone is such great rock for climbing! Here I’m climbing Daniboy (8a) a few years back, it’s at Kalymnos, Greece. But the rock in Sicily is just as sweet.

 

 

New Climbing Clinics – Sydney

By | Coaching, Events | No Comments

Brrr the chill is in the air so what better time to hit the gym for some serious winter training. If you are interested in gaining some training insights and fully utilising your time in the gym then perhaps consider participating in one of my training clinics. I promise you they are heaps of fun and very interactive. I provide full course notes so you’re not spending time writing you’ll be doing loads of climbing.

My Climbing Fundamentals clinic is targeted towards beginners and intermediate climbers who wish to unravel some of the complexities of climbing. If you’ve ever wondered how some people can simply breeze up climbs then wonder no more…Through a fun and interactive program we explore; precise footwork, balance & body positioning, hand holds and how to use them, breathing, resting & recovering, mixing it up on wall angles and route reading. This clinic will see you well on your way to mastering the key fundamentals of climbing technique.

My Train Smart clinic is targeted at climbers who want to learn how to train smart. If you spend a lot of time in the gym and aren’t getting results then learn how to “train”, not just go climbing. I will unravel the secrets of climbing technique and provide a training structure for you to maximise your time in the gym (and outside the gym) to its full potential.

My Breaking Climbing Plateaus clinic is targeted at intermediate and advanced climbers who wish to learn ways in which to push through mental and physical barriers. Have you been climbing for a while and have hit a wall? Don’t know how to progress to the next level? Well during this hands on clinic we discuss possible reasons for reaching a climbing plateau and learn strategies to push through these plateaus. The clinic explores; technique, fear of failure (numbers), mental game, falling, creating a tick list, mixing it up, building a pyramid, expanding your comfort zone and route selection.

Spaces are limited to 10 participants per clinic. Contact the gyms to book your spot.

Train Smart clinics – QLD

By | Coaching, Events | No Comments

Following on from the positive energy and feedback from the training clinics that I have been running in Sydney over the past month I am now very excited to announce a flying visit to Brisbane and the Gold Coast where I will be presenting more clinics.

My Competition Tactics clinic focuses on the mental and physical preparation for climbing your best on comp day. You’ve done the hard work and training leading up to the competition now lets look at how to get a great performance on the day. We will practice onsighting two routes in the clinic and discuss the tactics involved before climbing, what happens during the climb and then analyse how you did.

My Train Smart clinic is targeted at climbers who want to learn how to train smart. The goal is to turn your time in the gym into meaningful training, not just climbing. I will unravel the secrets of training and empower you with the tools to utilise your time in the gym to its full potential. Bring climbing shoes, harness, chalk bag and lots of psyche!
