Ben's answer: "The secret to staying in shape is to keep climbing or training. Although this might sound obvious it's not always easy to do so. But with so many good climbing gyms around it's much easier than it used to be. If you are motivated then climb or train 3 times per week but 5 is better! If you are unmotivated then try and climb at least once a week until your motivation returns. But whatever you do and however you feel you must keep climbing. It's also really important to look after your body especially as you get older. Eat a healthy and balanced diet, do not drink too much, maintain your flexibility. Train hard, climb harder!
