Rock Gym Pro

Management Software For Gym Owners

About Us:
Rock Gym Pro (RGP) was developed in 2008 as a comprehensive software solution for the fast-growing rock climbing gym industry. Today the software is used by nearly 90% of climbing facilities in the U.S., dozens of gyms internationally as well as multiple high-volume, indoor sports facilities. Together these businesses have processed over $1.5 billion in transactions on the RGP platform. We’ve been successful at Rock Gym Pro because we’re passionate about our customers. We constantly move the product forward and develop new features based directly on customer feedback.

 

About The Role:
