“There is no doubt that in the UK, Neil is by far the most well known and respected rock climbing coach, with his reputation spreading across the borders and into Europe and America. He is the voice of all the UK coaches and the person we all look to for advice in developing our own coaching services.
Steve McClure (1.12.10)
IN PRAISE OF NEIL GRESHAM'S MASTERCLASSES:
“Thank you so much for the Masterclass I attended today! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect and must admit I was slightly nervous. However the class far exceeded any expectations! The techniques you taught us altered my mindset and from now on, my approach to climbing! THANK YOU Neil for a totally mind blowing masterclass today!“
Jonathan E (Southampton)
“I really enjoyed the session, and felt that I walked away both motivated about my climbing, and having gained some good tips about my technique and some valuable advice on how to train properly. I think the proof is in the pudding really. Before Neil came I had only climbed the red route to the left of the slab on top-rope and after Neil's lesson, I lead it with relative ease. All in all, money well spent. Thanks Neil!!”
Andrew G (Norwich)
“It was a truly inspiring day. Neil has such an enthusiastic and personable nature and his advice was spot on. It has definitely rekindled the hunger to keep climbing and progress further…. It was very useful to have an educated outsider's point of view on your climbing. Thanks very much, Neil.”
