My Formula

I have 16 years of competitive and outdoor climbing experience, coaching and competing at National Championships and World Cups, and over 100 double digit boulders up to V13.   With coaching day 1 athletes to become Youth and Open National Champions, 5.14d sport climbers, and V15 Boulderers, I am confident in my ability as a coach to guide you to the next level in your climbing. 

Through a holistic approach to your training and climbing, we will address and continuously improve ALL areas of your physical and mental profile as well as all other life factors that affect your on-wall performance. 

As a certified strength and conditioning coach, I will take all of the worrying out of your programming. I will prescribe periodized training protocols; controlling volume, duration and load in order to optimize performance, prevent injury/overtraining, and improve performance over the short AND long-term. 

Unlike other training for climbing companies, I will be here with you every step of the way for advice, time and support!

My name is Charlie Schreiber and I am a professional rock climbing coach. For the past 16-years of my life, I have been obsessed with learning everything there is to know about athletically performing on rock, training for those performances and teaching how to mentally and physically approach both aspects. Under the tutelage of some of the country's best coaches, I developed into a high-performing climbing athlete on the competition circuit and outdoors. Aspiring to become a master of the sport and climb professionally, I became self-coached. Since that day, 13 years ago, I have spent every day focused on perfecting my and my student's climbing technique, strength, climbing IQ and everything else that contributes to enhanced performance. 

Education:

  • Bachelor's in Finance from Ramapo College of NJ

Alex "AJ" Johnson has been climbing professionally for almost two decades.

She has been a member of the US Team for eighteen years, winning her first US Open National Championship at age thirteen (2003), and becoming Open Pan American Champion at age fourteen (2004).

In 2008 AJ made history by becoming the first American to win a Bouldering World Cup on US soil.

In 2010 she did it again, winning gold in Switzerland, becoming the first American to win two Bouldering World Cup gold medals.

Alex briefly retired from competing in 2016 and shifted her focus toward outdoor climbing projects, building an impressive tick-list filled with dozens of iconic first female ascents, hard sends up to V14 with her recent ascent of The Swarm, and has established several first ascents around the Southwest.

Three years later, she came out of retirement to win a silver medal at the 2019 US Nationals, earning her spot back on the US Team for 2019 and 2020 to pursue an Olympic qualification spot at Sport Climbing’s 2020ne debut, but fell just short of qualifying.

In 2018, AJ came out publicly as LGBTQ+ and proudly advocates for equality in sports, the outdoors, and across the country.

She continues to remain at the top of competitive climbing in the US recently earning a 2021 North American Cup silver medal, and a 2022 North American Cup bronze medal.

On the outdoor side, AJ continues to be one of the best female climbers in the world. She is stronger than ever, and having her best year to-date having recently put down five V12 (8A+) boulders and three V13 (8B.)
