Per the dictionary, “a period devoted to a particular activity.” It fit. The notion of “time well spent” became their north star that would inform every big decision, especially in respect to location, design and culture.
For two years, Mike and Kevin searched for something central, easy to access, and that would allow them to build from scratch. By building “ground up,” they would have maximum creative control over every aspect of the gym. From the architecture to the layout, the air conditioning to the light fixtures, every element was chosen with intention.
When designing the gym, Kevin and Mike wanted to create a space that was comfortable to spend time in, regardless of activity or level of experience. So, they focused on creating a welcoming environment to non-climbers and climbers alike by placing a cafe/lounge in the heart of the space.
Perhaps most importantly, the notion of “time well spent” guides the culture that Mike and Kevin seek to cultivate, for both staff and the community. When you take time out of your day to visit Session, that matters. Session exists to create a facility, community and culture worth your time, where you can discover more about yourself, connect with others, and have fun.
