Friday Feat: A New Take On Coordination Training

Slovenian athletes Mia Krampl and Tjaša Kalan find a new, interesting way to train coordination.


“We saw it on Instagram and had been talking about it ever since,” said Tjaša Kalan to Gym Climber. Slovenia’s National Team practice seemed like a good time to try the maneuver out. 

Kalan, 24, is studying law at the University of Ljubljana, in Slovenia. She’s been competing in the international circuit since 2011 and has made it the final World Cup stage for Lead in 2015, 2016 and 2018. 

Her partner for this trick, Mia Krampl, is another dominant competitor in the circuit. Krampl qualified for the Olympics last November in Toulouse, France. 

As talented as the two ladies are at climbing, this particular “training” exercise was not easy. The footage here was the first time they were successful after several failed attempts, during which they were grateful for the pads. 

Happy Friday!
