Ben Couldn’t Get Past 5.10 and Now He’s On 5.12a’s!

“TrainingBeta has been extremely beneficial to me. I had no idea how to train for climbing besides some basic 4×4 workouts, and I was having a hard time getting over the 5.10 grade for a couple years. Since doing your 6-week Power Endurance program I am leading 5.11s and top roping 5.12a’s and I’m feeling a lot more confident in my ability to keep improving. Training Beta is definitely worth every penny and I highly recommend it to everyone I meet at the gym and the crag.”

You guys are awesome!
