Judith Spancken

Monitrice et coach d’escalade


Je m'appelle Judith (Jude) Spancken. Je suis monitrice et coach d'escalade professionnelle basée en France. J'enseigne en anglais, en allemand et en français.

Mon approche de l'enseignement en l'escalade est axée sur le processus d'apprentissage et d'approfondissement de l’écoute du corps en mouvement. Je crois en l'importance de la qualité du mouvement pour bien grimper, de manière efficace permettant d’ diminuer le risque de blessures. Cette philosophie est au cœur de mon enseignement. 

Vous êtes débutant? En quête d'évolution et d’épanouissement ? Vous grimpez déjà depuis plusieurs années ? Vous souhaitez obtenir un avis professionnel ? Découvrir et exploiter de nouvelles ressources ? Je serais heureuse de travailler avec vous.

“I spent two days with Judith as my private rock climbing guide in the South of France. Her passion for the sport is inspiring! Not only is she a phenomenal athlete and climber, but she is incredible as a teacher and guide also. She was patient and encouraging, and was easily able to identify my strengths and weaknesses. The knowledge and skill that I gained after only two days with her was astounding! I learned so much about finesse, quality of movement, energy efficiency, and confidence. Even months after, when I’m climbing, I still hear her pointers and advice in my head. Thank you Judith for making me a much safer, efficient, and motivated climber! It was a privilege to learn from you!”  Robin M.

"I worked with Jude to help me unlock my negativity whilst on-sighting/red pointing.  It might have been just for one day but the words she said to me before each route, set an intention for calmness, curiosity and fluid execution of movement. Her words still stay in my mind, months later and have helped me tremendously! I’d thoroughly recommend anyone of any ability see Jude for coaching.
The feed back I received was also extensive, considered and beneficial for my future progression as a climber" Amanda L.

"Working with Jude was a revelation, it completely changed how I think when I climb – I now use much smaller foot movements when I can, and find ways to move upwards which I wouldn’t have seen before. I’ve had a couple of other coaches before, who left me thinking ‘finger strength, finger strength’, but by getting the basics right with Jude I now know strength isn’t my limiting factor. Apart from movement on rock, we covered on-sight tactics and route reading. I loved working with Jude - her passion for climbing is infectious! Thank you" Paul W.
