The Mental Game of Lead Climbing
** Cross posted with Pat's Meetup Group "Sports Psychology Coaching of New England" **
Lead climbing is more than a physical challenge. It's a head game. If you panic, or lose focus you can die. It's as much about achieving self mastery as it is about mastering climbing technique. When you learn self management and develop mental toughness you gain confidence and improve your climbing. Learn to transcend your fears and develop adaptive mental states for fluid motion on the rock.
The Workshop will cover these 8 Topics
1- The Psychology of Risk
2- Fear, Anxiety & Self Management
4- Focus and Concentration
5- Mental Toughness
6- Mental Training & Visualization Techniques
8- Flow & The Zone
Climbing on top rope and Mock lead climbing will be done for most of the day. This is the first time trying to blend these to types of days out. If it interests you to gain skills to work through the fear. Come on out an join us for the day.
