ALPINE ATHLETICS coaches dedicated mountaineers of all levels who are focused and committed to being as prepared as possible for their next mountaineering objective.
As the founder of Alpine Athletics, Lisa Thompson has been intensely training for mountaineering objectives around the world since 2008. As a small framed woman, she is driven by the desire not to be the weakest link on her ascent teams. As such she has dedicated up to 30 hours per week to physical, mental, and tactical prep for her climbing objectives. This focus and commitment have propelled her to the top of thehighest mountain on every continent, to the summit of K2 in Pakistan, and three Himalayan peaks including the summit of Everest in 2016.
She founded Alpine Athletics in 2018 in order to share her knowledge and commitment to training with other mountaineers and mountain athletes.
Since then she has helped more than 100 athletes reach their climbing objectives.
