Climbing with ski racing star Alexis Pinturault
Young, likeable and successful! That’s how I would describe my idol Alexis Pinturault! However, this Frenchman has much more great characteristics. These are probably one of the source of his exceptional success in his young career. Commitment, iron will and talent has been shown by Alexis also on the wall at our first climbing session. He acted according to my advice and played it out well. Not for nothing he did several boulders in the V3 range as well as one route at the UIAA grading 5+ on his very first attempt! We enjoyed the meeting, where we laughed a lot and mixed up talking in French, German and of course mainly in English.
ASP Red Bull managed by Robert Trenkwalder, offered this climbing session. Professional preparation associated with different sports as a balance are essential for every athlete. Leg-related training is important for climbers, so is training for the upper body necessary for a skier. In this ASP Red Bull team we don’t only profit from professional training but also from physiotherapy, that are significant for an athlete. By means of physiotherapy, athletes can resist the various movements at their limit, and the risk of injuries can be reduced. It’s great to have such a partner on my side, who makes these things possible. Last but not least to meet my idol Alexis! :-)
