A Letter From Our New CEO

At our best, BKB is a place where we provide these important elements and more. My job as CEO is to ensure that BKB is on a path of service to our community and team. On this path, you and our team members (who are now co-owners of the company) are the leaders. Please read on to learn more about the changes we’re making and how you can participate in making our community thrive.  

As a company defined by our commitment to the health and wellness of our community (including our team members), it would be sorely remiss of Brooklyn Boulders to fail to evolve as a result of everything we learned this year and last. Nationwide, we faced two public health crises: the pandemic and the widespread recognition of social injustices long plaguing our society.

As an organization, we took the necessary time to listen, analyze, reflect, and reorganize this company based on everything we learned ourselves and from you.  In many ways the changes we’re making reflect the gym you’ve come to love, but they also reflect the progress and future we’re all walking towards.  

As an organization, we took the necessary time to listen, analyze, reflect, and reorganize this company based on everything we learned ourselves and from you.

Where We Are Going in 2021

This is a radical shift and we’re putting our money where our mouth is by turning all full-time employees into literal owners of the company.

Our entire community, and even country, is continuing to navigate the new and difficult world we live in. We’re choosing to navigate it by being laser-focused on giving you and every individual member of this community a supportive space for personal growth and adventure. It is our hope that when you leave here, you feel more empowered to take on the world beyond our doors. I’m ready. Our entire staff is ready. 2021 will be a year to remember what we built, together.
