What you'll do

** No prior experience or equipment required **

Join me on a journey as we unravel the secrets of the world’s top rock climbers. Together, we’ll explore the mindset of what it takes to climb at the highest level, all while learning how to cultivate this mindset ourselves using my private home climbing wall.

Whether you’re new to climbing or you’re already an experienced climber, my goal with this experience is to help you unlock your creativity & gain the skills necessary to tackle your next challenge with confidence.

In this class, we’ll primarily focus on active visualization (route reading) and how to apply it to climbing and beyond.

First, we’ll analyze footage of the best climbers in the world across multiple disciplines and define active visualization. Next, we’ll warm up and practice the visualization techniques we just learned. Finally, I’ll share one of my most valuable mental training activities as we play an interactive game on my home climbing wall.

Throughout the class, we’ll open up the discussion to any questions you may have. Looking forward to sharing this experience with you soon!

Note: Closed captions are included for the duration of this class.

Hey there! My name is Josh Levin. I'm a professional climber, American Ninja Warrior finalist, and mechanical engineer. Climbing has been my passion for over 20 years now and I've been fortunate enough to travel the world through my climbing experiences. In my competitive career, I've won 19 National Championships, 5 Continental Championships, and the bronze medal at the Youth World Championships. I’ve also been involved as an advocate for climbing’s inclusion in the Olympic Games and have served as an ambassador to the IOC on several occasions. In my spare time, you can find me listening to podcasts or reading Calvin & Hobbes. Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Josh truly is an expert in his field. He made climbing much more fun and interactive than I thought possible. He knows just the right way to explain everything so it’s easily understood and fun. If he ever teaches an in-person class, I’ll be first to sign up!

I highly recommend this experience for rock climbers (beginner to advanced!) As well as anyone looking to up their mental game! Josh was extremely friendly and genuine and that made the opportunity even more enjoyable!

Josh provides a fascinating, exciting, sometimes scary (in a good way) look into his world and how we, even a non-climber like myself, can apply his approach to climbing rocks and walls to climbing life's challenges! I'm already thinking about how to apply visualization to my work flow at my job to overcome obstacles, so THANK YOU Josh for that, I'm excited to try it. This is a heartfelt, inspiring experience that seeks and succeeds in helping us figure out how to be our best while watching an expert show us how it's done!

Really cool experience. Josh made it interesting and shared some great knowledge and passion for the sport. This is a fun experience for anyone even if it's for non climbers looking to hear more about the new Olympic sport. Josh was even willing to be a virtual climber and let you play some fun interactive games. I would totally recommend this to anyone.

This experience offered unique and personal insights into the world of competitive rock climbing. Even as someone with a decade of first-hand knowledge of this field myself, I learned important techniques and useful tools that are applicable to life's challenges outside the world of rock climbing. Josh was extremely articulate and engaging. The program is a very fun group zoom activity during Covid too!

Highly entertaining and surprisingly interactive. Best Airbnb experience I've done so far! I was definitely looking forward to this, but I was still happily surprised by how much fun I had! My group had mixed backgrounds with rock climbing-- I'm very experienced, but my girlfriend and her family have very little knowledge of the sport-- but Josh was very effective at crafting a positive experience for all of us. Also, he's humble about it during the session, but Josh is a big deal in both climbing and American Ninja Warrior. I've seen him signing autographs before in a gym. It was cool being able to talk and ask him questions in a small group!
