Climbing is just one of the services that you will offer your customers if you want a well-rounded product offering. Climbing training classes, yoga, personal training, youth teams, etc. are all part of the equation you want to provide at your gym. Vertical Solutions can iron out exactly what you need to keep your audience engaged and spreading the word to their friends.
Retail operations are key to supplemental revenue for your business. You will have a highly engaged audience of climbers walking through your doors every single day that all purchase equipment and apparel from somewhere. Vertical Solutions will show you why it needs to be you that they buy from, and take it a step further by showing you how to integrate it into your gym floor plan.
Route setting is an art. The difference between good and bad setting is huge. Climbers of all abilities deserve good route setting and, in this era of modern climbing gyms, they’ve grown to expect it. Vertical Solutions makes its expert route setters available with all climbing wall packages. People come to climbing gyms to climb routes. A good wall is worthless with bad setting.
Getting your staff and management to function like a well-oiled machine isn’t easy. Climbing gyms need to be an environment that is light and fun, while still being professional. Vertical Solutions can coach you on how to recruit and hire the right people for your organization, and how to keep them. On top of this we can show you the specialized software tools necessary for everyday management and communications with your staff.
One of the best ways to get people psyched on your gym is to host a competition! This can be just a fun event for locals, or a fully sanctioned national event. Either way, Vertical Solutions can prepare you for how to run the events and give you the software you need to manage the actual competition, how to market, advertise and attract an audience and sponsors, and even profit from it.
