Competition – Always Be Training

Life is short and the climbs-boulders-mountains are many – how can you possibly be ready for them all?

Running a vast media empire like climbing’s version of the evil genius Rupret Murdoch, it’s a question that haunts us more than Honnold’s big brown cow eyes or Jerry Hall’s decision making process. But we have the answer.

ABT – Always be Training.

Yep, we Always be Training. Going to the dunny? Training. Getting stuff for dinner? Training. Holding a baby? Training. Writing an editorial epistle? Training. Binge-watching 
Game of Thrones? Battling gangs for local charities? Training. That’s right, training. Basically, ABT.

We want to inspire you to ABT because we want you to be strong and brave and ready and obsessed. So we are running an ABT competition to find out who is the best Always Be Training-er.

Send us a photo or a video of your most creative, most awesome, most inappropriate, most inventive or most ridiculous #ABT moments.
