Beloved APEX Boulder Community,

Though we had been stellar tenants at our Boulder warehouse facility, we were recently faced with some unfortunate circumstances.

La Sportiva, a neighboring business in our warehouse, is expanding. Our landlords granted them priority over our space and notified us that our lease was terminated. Boulder‘s commercial space rental market is landlord-friendly, and thus it is common for commercial leases in Boulder to include termination clauses. Our lease included such a clause, and we were left with no legal recourse or claim to our old location. We searched endlessly for a new warehouse in Boulder to no avail. The price per square foot almost doubled since we moved into central Boulder, and most warehouses lack the amenities necessary to create a proper educational parkour facility (e.g. extra high ceilings).

The good news is that we have signed a lease on a new amazing space! Our next home is located in the Colorado Technology Center in Louisville, CO. The complex is brand new, and about 15 minutes from our current location. What’s more exciting is that our move has provided us the opportunity to make massive improvements. Our new facility will feature innovative designs, upgraded gym structures, a better layout, and several other enhancements to ensure a higher quality experience for our community. On top of creating better indoor spaces for students, parents, and staff, our new facility has the potential to feature our first designated outdoor training area!

Our aim was to make this a seamless transition, but the blindsided nature of our relocation coupled with growing pains in the City of Louisville have made this an impossibility. The rapid expansion of Louisville and other Denver metro cities have left permitting departments understaffed, and bottlenecked the approval of new building plans like ours. Due to these hold ups, APEX Boulder’s re-opening in Louisville is not yet announced.

Outdoor Program & Memberships

All active memberships will be frozen for the duration of this closing period. If you have an active membership and/or auto-pay schedule, you do not need to do anything. Even better, APEX Boulder will be offering our first ever outdoor classes every day from Feb 27th to March 31st! Every class in this program will feature multiple coaches to help break up the varying skill levels and ensure everyone is challenged appropriately. To participate in the program, students can sign up for an outdoor membership or drop in.

We hope you are as excited about this evolution as we are but we understand that this might be tough news for some students and parents. We love Boulder as much as you do, and we plan to one day replant ourselves permanently within the city limits. For now, please feel encouraged to bring up any concerns or questions you have about the move by sending an email to Justache@apexmovement.com or simply stay tuned for more details.

Thank you for helping us to create a community so powerful that we have turned crisis into opportunity. We know that we’ll grow even stronger as we hone our skills, minds, and hearts to overcome this challenge!

Best,

Justin Sikkema, Amos Rendao and Ryan Ford
