About The Mountain Foundry
The Mountain Foundry was started by me, Charley Radcliffe, in 2015 to offer professional fitness training for everyone from mountain athletes to everyday athletes in the Chamonix Valley.
I specialise in strength and conditioning for mountain sports such as trail running, skiing, and climbing. Employing the awesome results of kettlebells, barbells, sandbags, and more, I work with people to build a suit of armour for their body, giving them every advantage they can have in the outdoors.
Moving to Chamonix, France in May 2014, I was in search of a life that was more balanced, that challenged me in a new way, and that fed my soul.
I simply love being in the mountains, with them never failing to bring a smile to my face, no matter how difficult the current moment feels, and believe that training hard enables you to enjoy them even more.
I have run 100km from London to Brighton, unsupported; climbed Mont Blanc twice; climbed 1000m+ alpine north faces; competed in Vertical KM races; and more.
