Enjoy goal-based training for your outdoor pursuits! Feel the burn with this series of workouts custom-created by Hank Greene, certified personal trainer at Sender One Climbing & Fitness in Santa Ana, California.
Hank grew up surfing, racing mountain bikes, and playing lacrosse at an elite level in Southern California. His love for climbing didn't reveal itself until he moved to the rock-mecca of Boulder Colorado in 2006, where he quickly switched his focus from the field to the crag.
Since finishing his bachelor's degree and moving back to California in 2010, he's continued splitting his time between working towards his Masters, working as a Physical Therapist Aide, NSCA Personal Trainer, Instructor and Youth Coach at Sender One, and - of course - climbing as much as possible. Hank focuses his training programs on establishing a solid base of fitness, knowledge and technical movement and then progressively increases an athlete's ability to identify and perform these movements on increasingly difficult terrain. Having spent several years working in a rehab setting he makes a point to create well balanced athletes and includes specific self-care routines into every program. He has also led several successful Injury Prevention workshops and is the original Advanced Technique Instructor at Sender One. Hank prides himself on providing a supportive environment to keep athletes informed, stoked, and injury-free in order to further themselves on their path towards improvement.
