Its not every Construction company that can say they offer ongoing support and services every week to a full service gym. Many construction companies work with the gyms they build until the project is done, and then ongoing support costs more money. If that sounds like a conflict of interest to you, that's exactly what we thought!
By having an ongoing relationship with Skyhook Fitness, Skyhook Construction has ended up learning how to offer products that are affordable right now, that last and will work in the long run. This unique partnership has led to some phenomenal innovations that make our products last longer, work better, and truly make the gyms we put them in great for athletes, and for gym owners.

The Delicate Balance
Something most gym owners don't talk about is what makes a gym a true parkour gym. A lot of current high level athletes who do parkour started in gymnastics, and if they were lucky enough to have a parkour gym near them once they started learning, it was pretty barebones.
Most parkour gyms have rolled rubber flooring, bare wood obstacles, unpainted metal bars, and a lack of any "real" padding in sight. Then, for some bizarre reason, they struggle to get parents to pay for their kids to go to what is essentially an ugly indoor playground, that likely was built as poorly as it looks, i.e., not well.
As the sport of Parkour grows, Athletes are coming to terms with the fact the gyms they grew up training in and getting hurt in, are not the gyms that will bring parkour into the spotlight it deserves. The parkour gyms of the future are bright, clean, well built, and colorful. They have plenty of padding, and parents see how professional and well behaved the staff is, making them comfortable with the idea of their kids training their.
While some high level parkour athletes might scoff at this change in the industry, its important to keep in mind you can always move kids away from pads and padded floors once they have learned the basics. Adding safety and making your gym look great isn't "selling out", its future proofing your investment, and will help you appeal to a wider audience. Great equipment should be well designed, modular, and beautiful. Using it will let you raise the next generation of parkour athletes to even greater heights, while keeping your investment safe from lawsuits and potential business failure.
Skyhook will help you build a gym that appeals to Athletes, Investors/Owners, and the parents of your future members.
