Rise Gymnastics LLC SBDC Success Story

Economic Impact

  • Business Start
  • Jobs Created: 6

Kevin Kirkland, a coach and trainer for two decades who has won several national awards as a gymnast, contacted the SBDC for help with starting his gymnastics gym at the mall.

He has several clients that will be transitioning with him as he starts his new business with the proposed location.

Business advisor Alejandro Castañon assisted Kevin with applying for and securing the space at the mall. This required contract negotiations, since the proposed space needed improvements to update it to his gym specifications.

After working on the project for nearly two years, Kevin was able to open his gym and break new registration records in the first month.

“Rise would not exist without the expertise and assistance of this organization! Absolutely incredible.”
