It has been extremely hard—and frustrating—to find online resources for absolute beginners who are just starting to climb. Most YouTube channels and online training guides require people to already have a fitness level that involves using fingerboards and doing pull-ups.
That doesn’t work for us. At all.
Instead, we decided to work out at our own level and slowly improve our cardio, strength and flexibility.
After a lot of trial and error over many, many, years, we have finally come up with an approach to our workouts that have turned them into more than training—it's a lifestyle divided into branches.
MAKE YOUR TRAINING
Training Branch: Cardio
Running, jogging, jumping, or anything else that makes you sweat and feel like you'll die.
Training Branch: Flexibility
Yoga, pilates, stretching and any exercise that pulls the stiffests parts of your body.
Training Branch: Core
Crunches, sit ups and abdominal exercises that try to prove that a six pack isn't a myth.
Training Branch: Strength
Exercises with weights that build the muscles to help you cling from an edge to save your life.

Move your Body
Talking about the effects of the sedentary life is old news... But that doesn't change the fact that most of us are stuck in some form of sedentarism.
The way we are trying to break free from that is by not just working out for the sake of it. Our fitness goals have to go beyond running faster, having a toned body before summer or doing pull-ups.
We train to be flexible enough to reach certain footholds. We work our core to be able to climb overhangs. We do cardio to be able to climb up a mountain.
What will your goals be?
Tried & Tested
Curious but not sure where to start?
We sometimes still feel like that. That's why it's important to go at your own pace. It's also helpful to follow workouts that make you feel great—even if you end up sore!
