Training for Climbing with Private Coaching
There is no better way to learn how to climb than through private instruction, and there’s nothing we like to do more than to help people improve. At the High Point Climbing School, based out of Chattanooga’s iconic new climbing gym, High Point Climbing & Fitness, we are offering one-on-one coaching and personal training for climbing. With ongoing private instruction you can expect fast results from undivided attention. Those climbers who have reached a plateau, or who want to boost their performance for a specific goal will get clear practical advice, customized training and regular instruction for steady improvement.
High Point Climbing School’s founders and head coaches, Wills Young and Lisa Rands are both elite-level climbers with impressive ascents, competition wins and over 55 years of experience between them. They have traveled the world in pursuit of their own climbing dreams and are here to share their knowledge and passion.
As coaches to the High Point Climbing Team Wills and Lisa have coached climbers to National level competitions including to National Champion. They are both American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) Certified Single Pitch Instructors and certified coaches with USA Climbing, the national governing body of competition climbing.

The rate for personal coaching and training at the gym from Wills or Lisa is $70 per hour. For those wanting ongoing coaching, we offer increasing discounts: purchase of 3 hours, 5 hours, or 10 hours of coaching at rates of $65, $60 and $55 per hour.
