Client Reviews

'"I did Foundation Coach Training with Andy. We hadn't met before and I'll admit I was open-minded but slightly cynical about what hard outputs I might get from the course. I could not have been more wrong! Andy delivered an excellent day at Harrogate Wall that was very practical, packed full of 'high protein' tips and enjoyable too. Andy catered to our mixed-ability group with ease and I certainly left with a very clear picture of what good 'foundation coaching' is. He followed up the course with sending us all the slide pack and other resources. A superb day and I will certainly be looking to do further coaching modules under Andy's instruction. I highly recommend Andy and Climb for Life!"
