Front Training Room Clinics

Strength Training for Climbers (Online program)

Virtual workouts are a great way to stay moving during quarantine, but structure and guidance from a pro will ensure you're actually preparing to return to sport when we can get back to the gyms and crags. To that end, The Front's own climbing and running coach Erin Storck has developed a 5-week strength training program specifically for climbers, with beginner and intermediate levels available. The goals of the program are to maintain strength and fitness at home, prevent injuries when you return to climbing, improve core and finger strength... and to help us not go crazy during quarantine :).

The program includes TrueCoach access, which allows you to track your workouts and progress to stay motivated and includes videos to assist you with proper form. The app also allows you to communicate directly with Erin if you have questions about your program.

Because we can all use some good news and a little break, we are offering this program (normally $80) at 50% off, with a rolling sign-up period so you can join in when you're ready.

Please note: The intermediate/advanced program requires a hangboard. The beginner and intermediate programs both require minimal equipment and a willingness to get creative if needed!

Cost: $39

Training for Trail Running (Online program)

Don't wait until Spring is in full swing to prep your body (and mind) for the trail and mountain running season. Coach Erin Storck has designed a 6-week “Training for Trail Running Program” starting on March 26. (Registration will remain open until May 29!)

This camp is for trail and mountain runners of all ability levels looking to incorporate strength training specific to runners into their weekly routine. Strength training will not only make you stronger but will help prevent injuries and aid you to be a more balanced athlete throughout your season. This program will be in a go at your own pace format. You will have access to TrueCoach, an online platform created to deliver and access your weekly workouts designed by your coach. In this platform you will find 6 weeks of training, including two strength training workouts designed for runners like you and two run workouts to help you learn different run workouts to incorporate into your training! You will also get to keep the training plan after the 6-week TrueCoach access has ended!

Cost: $75

Meet the FTR Coaches

It starts with movement, and movement is my medicine. It is also my passion. I never stop moving. My passion is specifically in the mountains where I focus on skiing, backcountry, hiking, trail running and climbing. I learned a long time ago that we need both the gym and the outside world to be a balanced athlete. As a personal trainer I specialize in function movement, range of motion work in the tendons/joints, strength training and cardio programming as well as prenatal and postpartum for all my active mamas out there. Whether you want to just stay in shape, get into shape, work on balance and range of motion, build muscle, learn how to use the gym appropriately or train for an upcoming race, I got you covered.

I have been a personal trainer for over two years now working with athletes, injuries/recoveries, weight loss etc. I have a bachelors in Public Health, and am certified as a personal trainer through ACE (American Council on Exercise).

As a trainer my goal is to bring out the best in you, mentally and physically. I want to challenge you and help you achieve whatever goals you have. It takes commitment, time and energy. But, I am confident we can get you to where you deserve to be.

Health and fitness have always been a major part of my life. In recent years, I have devoted much of my athletic pursuits to splitboarding and to trail and mountain racing! I still make sure to keep time for gym training, climbing and adventuring.

I have been personal training for over five years and have experiences in many settings such as rehab, general fitness, athletics and special populations. I have been training athletes at The Front for over two years now. I specialize in injury prevention, run-coaching, general fitness, climbing, ski/snowboard conditioning and overall mountain fitness! I have a Bachelors in Exercise Science and I am certified as an Exercise Physiologist through ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine).

When working with athletes, I love seeing each individual become more in tune with their bodies. It’s amazing how much you can gain when you are aware of your movements and the impact of the stressors you put on your body!

Lauren Callaway is a Colorado native, and fell in love with climbing in her mid-20’s. She was immediately captivated by the process of developing physical and emotional skills for climbing, and is on a constant quest for growth, whatever form it happens to take. In less than a decade she successfully climbed 5.14 sport, V11 boulders, and 5.12+ trad.

Lauren was introduced to training for climbing after two years of feeling plateaued. After successfully pushing past her own strength and mental limitations, she hasn’t looked back and has seen constant improvement ever since. She has since applied her obsessive tendencies to constantly improving her knowledge of training and improvement of physical performance for climbing, and has been coaching and teaching workshops on climbing technique and performance for the past three years.

Some of Lauren’s training philosophies include:
– You can’t train successfully if you can’t find a balanced way to integrate it into your lifestyle.
– It’s important to take a scientific approach – track, monitor and analyze EVERYTHING.
– Gains are almost never linear and don’t always come in physical forms.
– Never train without a goal. Listen to your body, always.
