Thanks for this!!

Despite having a fingerboard and a pull-up bar, I have always struggled with motivation. Today, a few of us arranged by Messenger to train at the same time - it worked!! 

I wonder if the Fit Club thread will get bigger?

I find the free 'Crimpd App' good for tracking progress and for suggestions of different training activities.

Another excellent app is grips n grades which has a virtual beastmaker and training plans based on using the various holds asymmetrically - which is a (tiny) bit more like climbing than fingerboarding!

Most manufacturers sell direct from their websites and still have stock. Check the Beastmaker website.
