Anyone have any experience adding a bouldering wall or rock climbing area to a gym that was primarily fitness oriented? (i.e. not a climbing gym, but a regular gym with a smaller climbing area.) I am looking for tips/resources on creating profitability, rough insurance costs, etc for such an additional. Did it work for you?
I train at a gym that has a rock wall. I believe it was once used a lot but since I have been training there I have not seen one person use it. I don’t think it would be much of an appeal for the average person who just wants access to a nice gym. Maybe if you promoted it hard and it seems like something your current members would enjoy using.
Hope this helps,
