COVID-19 Update 11/17
OUTDOOR COVERED SPACE UPDATE!
HOLIDAYS LEAD TO A SMALL BUT MANAGEABLE DELAY, EXPECT GOOD NEWS IN THE NEXT DAY OR TWO.
As much as I normally love the holidays, sometimes they get in the way! Talking with our commercial real estate broker, Thanksgiving means that some deals are moving slower than they normally would. He expects we will gain access to the new space this weekend, meaning we will be able to have our first trial run of classes on Monday the 30th, or Tuesday Dec 1st at the latest.
If we don't gain access to the space this weekend to move our equipment in, and the 30th is when we gain access, we will start classes on Tuesday Dec 1st anyways. Even if not everything is setup, we know your ninjas are itching to get back into action! So even if the rig is not fully setup, we will still have a usable area that we will add onto.
What will "Outdoor Skyhook" have?
We plan to bring much of what make us great to this new outdoor area. We will bring most of our carpet bonded foam, and all of our balance obstacles, vault blocks, quad steps, shrinking steps, and much more to create fun and challenging balance courses. With this equipment we will be able to teach parkour and gymnastics classes.
We will also bring our welded aluminum trussing that has been in the back area of the gym. This trussing is great, since not only is it easier to hang obstacles on; the amount we plan to bring should take less than 8 hours to be setup by a small crew. We will also take advantage of the buildings architecture to hang a version of chain junction, so we will have plenty of Ninja obstacles for everyone! Planned obstacles include: Many hanging small obstacles, Pipe slider, Flying squirrel alley, Flywheel alley, Hanging doors, Lache bars, Hanging monkey bars, and more!
We also have a couple of fun surprises planned for everyone, so while we will all miss Skyhook, our "Outdoor Skyhook" should be unique and different enough to be very fun for all of our members. You will also see all the coaches you know and love, since of course they are part of what makes Skyhook special.
While I wish that we could be confident that this is just a two week pause, having the outdoor space is our contingency plan to have a solution that will work if this two weeks turns into two or three months. If the pause drags on for longer, as I suspect it will, we will continue to add equipment to keep "Outdoor Skyhook" fun and interesting, as everyone knows we excel at.
I know everyone has questions, and I apologize for not having all of the answers. We will continue to give updates as we learn more. We will also announce the address once we have signed the paperwork, but don't worry, "Outdoor Skyhook" is close to Skyhook.
So all that being said, please bear with us. These are tough times, and we need everyone's support if we are going to be able to pull through. Please keep your memberships active, as we are still trying our hardest to keep providing everyone with access to Fitness and Movement.
Sincerely and with Love,
Owners of Skyhook
