Climbing is a demanding sport, and one of the most important elements of climbing fitness is shoulder/arm/forearm/grip strength. Why not hire a personal trainer in London to beef up your shoulder and arm strength, and give you that all-important grip strength to keep you going for longer?

It also helps if you're carrying no excess body fat. A personal trainer can advise you on your eating habits to burn off the excess fat and boost your climbing ability.
