My name is Nic Duerr and I am the founder and head coach of trainHardButSmart, the website you're
reading right now.
I started climbing more than 15 years ago. Along the way I got my diploma in sport science with a major in exercise and training physiology and performance and authored the book Train Hard But Smart Volume 1.
I believe there is a big need for fact based information about training for climbing to counterbalance all the anecdotal approaches and internet nonsense.
A science based, applicable way to move our sport forward and reach our personal goals.
The thing I am most proud of though, is the work I do with my clients.
Seeing someone achieve their goal after they worked so hard truly inspires me and keeps me motivated to train hard for my own projects.
Come and join us and reach your true potential, too!

We cover all the main cornerstones of high level climbing and bouldering performance:
