About the Event

Have you ever wondered why you can’t do a certain move? Or how you could measure your progression without using grades? If so, then this webinar might be useful for you.

The aim of this webinar is give you some ideas on how to measure your own ‘physical baseline’. Suzan will focus on core and legs during this first session. Which means eg finger strength and shoulder stability won’t be covered (if people are interested is ‘upper body profiling' she could always run another webinar on this). One of the reasons we are focussing on core and legs is that you will not need any equipment like a fingerboard or pull-up bar. All you need is some space to move around in (and perhaps some pen and paper to record your baseline).

Originally from Holland, Suz started her ‘sporting life’ in athletics. It wasn’t till I was 21 that she discovered climbing.  When she moved over to England in 2008 climbing became a bigger part of her life both personal and professional. Together with her partner Andy Earl she travelled the world, developed climbing areas and helped build up Climb Newcastle. And before she knew it she shared the podium with Adam Ondra and became one of the first females to boulder F8a+ :).

Because circumstances changed she couldn't climb outside as often as she used to. Instead she started to focus more on the coaching and route-setting side of climbing, something she absolutely loves doing. Helping others reach their potentials is unbelievably rewarding and seeing people enjoy the problems you create is super motivating. Bouldering is her main climbing discipline and her coaching focuses on the movement - (technique) and cognitive side of climbing.

In 2018 she set up ‘Upgrade Climbing' , to professionalize her coaching and route setting work. Over the years she has coached and set all over the country but the WCS has always been one of her favourite days to coach and set at. Suz feels so so lucky to be able to say her job is also her hobby. I'm not sure many people can.

As well having her own 'business', she works for the Sport Science Department at Sunderland University where she teaches Sport Psychology (and yes, she does take her students climbing in the name of science) and is part of the coaching team for the  GB (developmental) squad.
