Coaching Testimonial; “I have had a number of one-on-one coaching sessions with David. On every session I notice that I climb a harder graded problem than before. He has helped me work on improving my strength, flexibility, footwork and confidence through his coaching sessions. David has also helped me recover from a recent shoulder injury, by planning sessions and programs to help rehabilitate my shoulder. He is a very patient and focused coach and I would highly recommend him to anyone.”
