TRAINING FOR CLIMBING CLUBS
The mission of the clubs is to create a team environment where womxn can recognize and achieve their highest potential by learning how to utilize the climbing gym and workout areas to increase their climbing skills. We go beyond a group of climbing partners by creating a team environment, focused on training together for everyone's individual goals. The Training for Climbing Clubs follow the Never Stop Moving training plan or any other training plan you want during a Spring 22-week season and a Fall 16-week season every year. Clubs meet between one time a month and two times a week and is entirely volunteer-run.
Train Hard. Climb Hard.
Womxn Aspiring To Be Better Climbers
The Training for Climbing Club takes places at various climbing gyms in Washington and Utah. Each club has a Spring Season (22 weeks) and a Fall Season (16 weeks). Each season incorporates an optional training program created by Never Stop Moving.
The goal is to have fun, climb with some awesome people and get better at climbing!
All levels of climbing abilities are welcome, whether you are a seasoned climber who wants to bump your climbing grade, someone who wants to surpass V3s, someone who wants to start climbing on ropes or someone who is completely new to climbing! All are welcome!
The clubs meet between 1 month and 2 days a week for 2 to 2.5 hours per session. You can choose to go as many times as you like! Up to you. The 2 to 2.5 hours are spent climbing and completing a circuit workout in the fitness area.

Spring Training Season
Fall Training Season
Outdoor Climbing Season
Linear Periodized Training Program
Each training season is broken out into 6 different phases:
The base fitness phase lasts 6 weeks (4 weeks Fall Season) and is focused on low intensity and long duration climbing. The purpose of each session is to achieve a maximum steady state of forearm pump. The phase provides opportunities to learn and work on climbing techniques via specific climbing drills.
The strength phase lasts 3 weeks and is focused on increasing finger strength and improving overall body strength to improve climbing performance. Each strength training session includes hangboard exercises and a circuit routine.
The power phase lasts 3 weeks and is focused on increasing the ability to perform dynamic powerful moves. This will be achieved by incorporating campus board and limit bouldering routines. Limit bouldering is climbing short boulder problems that have a couple hard moves.
The power endurance phase lasts 3 weeks and is focused on increasing the ability to sustain a series of difficult climbing moves. Various training exercises such as 4x4s and linked bouldering circuits will be performed. The intervals will be focused on moves that will be used in the succeeding performance phase.
The performance phase lasts 7 weeks (3 weeks Fall Season) and will consist of continuing routines in the power endurance phase as well as climbing outside to reach the goals that were established in the beginning of the season.
