PRESS RELEASE – Momentum ™ Indoor Climbing announces that it will open its fourth location in Utah at Trolley Square, a shopping center that is a Utah Historic Site listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Set to open in December 2018, 15,500-sq. ft. Momentum Trolley Square will offer 7,000 square feet of bouldering, a 4,000-square foot training area featuring a Moon Board, Momentum E-wall (a 34- foot wide “smart woody.”), a Lattice Board assessment center, weights, and a cardio area.

While children are welcome, this members-focused gym will not offer any organized youth programs. It will, however, provide adult programming and be included as a part of the brand’s popular multi-gym membership along with its Sandy, Lehi, and Millcreek locations. The gym will also offer a work and social zone where guests can plug-in and catch up on email or school work. Due to the gym’s proximity to the University of Utah, Momentum anticipates the gym will attract many area college students.

“For the past 5 years, we’ve been following the efforts to revitalize Trolley Square, which is a precious piece of Salt Lake City history. Securing our fourth location here, and playing a part in this center’s next chapter is exciting for Momentum,” said Jeff Pedersen, co-founder, and CEO of Momentum. “Salt Lake City’s passion for climbing and training has been the foundation of our brand’s success. We look forward to offering our loyal members another venue. At Trolley, we’ve paid special attention to providing the latest in climbing specific training technologies, so that all our climbers can realize their full potential.”

Momentum also recently opened two gyms in the Houston metro area, Momentum Kay and Momentum Silver Street. In late 2018 and early 2019, Momentum will open two locations in Seattle.
