Private Lesson with Head Coach Damir Okanovic

Damir has always been athletic and has worked with kids most of his life by either teaching climbing or Nina Warrior. His climbing experience started when he moved to Austin in 2016. Teaching the youth is something he is passionate about and finds that it comes with many rewards. He is a certified NASM Personal Trainer, has competed on American Ninja Warrior 3 seasons and made it to National Finals all three years. He enjoys all disciplines of competitive climbing as well as the various types of outdoor climbing. In his free time, you can find bouldering at the greenbelt, setting up lead routes at Reimer’s, or placing gear on trad routes at Enchanted Rock. Having a passion for both outdoor and competitive climbing helps him motivate and inspire the youth climbers he coaches.
