Internalizing Serious Leisure to Enhance Well-Being in Adventure Recreation
Those suggestions can be applied to the interactions between AR providers and clients. For example, after assessing a climber’s body movement, his/her instructor not only selects a route based on its rating, but focuses on certain skills, such as dyno, a dynamic movement used to grab the next handhold placed out of a climber’s reach, needed to successfully ascend the route. By working on this selected route, this climber gradually develop those skills and the instructor can give immediate feedback to help a client adjust their movements and mindsets. In this case, a rewarding experience is not only derived from a successful ascent, but also from being able to establish physical and mental techniques to address challenging situations in this route.
