How do you perform at the absolute top level of your sport while still working a regular job? For Mar Álvarez, the answer is easy; you train hard and you train smart. Mar, one of only six women in the world to have climbed the grade of 9a, takes an incredibly disciplined approach to her training. She carefully plans each exercise to target the areas of her performance that require improvement and she then sticks to that plan religiously. This video from Namuss films gives us an insight into that process and what it really means to make sacrifices for your passion. Mar's approach may initially appear extreme, but the results are undeniable and she recently made a successful ascent of 'Esclatamasters' (9a/5.14d), the route featured in this video.

In the summer of 2014, Spanish climber Mar Álvarez became the 5th woman in the world to climb the grade of 9a/5.14d. This was made even more impressive by the fact that Mar is not a professional climber. In fact, as a largely unsponsored athlete, she works as a firefighter in order to support her climbing and has achieved what few professional athletes have managed around the commitments of a demanding job. This is her story, going it alone, without the logos.
