Hello Salem!

Big thanks to those of you that have been following and supporting us on our Facebook page! We have been working on this project for over a year and have made tons of great progress on it. 

Time to climb!
Time to climb!

With your help we plan to bring Salem a professionally designed and built bouldering gym and yoga/fitness facility. We will have huge freestanding top out boulders, walls which reach heights up to 17 feet, and a cardio and free weight area. We will also offer a great kids area for the mini-climbers amongst us!

This gym was created by the designer who we have hired to created the Rock Boxx

We will have a very nice community room which can be affordably rented for memorable kids birthday parties, or any other type of party or gathering as well. The Rock Boxx will also include a great lounge area for hanging out between climbs or for the spectators in the crowd.

We are in the process of securing a great space for the gym with the high ceilings that we need to design a great climbing gym. We have also signed a contract with Louie Anderson to design and weld the structure of the walls and boulders in the Rock Boxx gym. Louie and his team will bring their experience and expertise to Salem to create an amazing professional climbing facility. We have also contributed a large down payment on the actual construction loan for the climbing wall. 

We need to secure another twenty five thousand dollars in order to be able to afford a wide array of climbing holds that the gym will need. We will cover some of the renovation costs of building the community room with this funding as well. With your generous contributions we will be able to get this gym open and give Salem an excellent addition to both it's fitness and entertainment scene!

Take a minute to check out the great rewards that we are offering! We have something for everyone. Help make Salem more awesome, donate today! 

If you do not see a reward level that meets your needs or you would like to invest on a larger scale then please shoot us an email so that we can accommodate you. Thanks!

Risks and challenges

With every uncharted territory or new adventure there will be a great number of associated challenges. Some of which can be anticipated and some that will remain unseen until encountered.

We strongly believe that the team that we have assembled, in conjunction with the network of business professionals that we have formed, will have the necessary resources to overcome any obstacle that we will come across.

Between the three of us we have a great deal of climbing experience but none of us have had the opportunity of actually running a rock climbing gym before. After market research and the overwhelming support that we have received on our Facebook page we believe strongly that Salem will give us the support that we need to succeed and grow.

We believe that the key to many of the challenges that we will face can be solved by looking to the amazing people that we have, and will continue to meet since taking on this project. A great yoga program will of course require great instructors and great climbing routes require great climbing route setters. The sum of all parts will always be greater than the individual.

All three of the team members of the Rock Boxx gym bring valuable experience from either starting or running businesses in the past. We have all of the skills necessary to complete this project from start to finish, including everything from the actual renovation and build-out down to the behind the scenes number-crunching and personnel management.

Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions!
