If a climb­ing gym has opened in your town, Hugo Voyer prob­a­bly knows about it. As the prod­uct man­ager for hard goods at mec, Voyer can tell when a new gym opens just by look­ing at his sales sheets. “Three sum­mers ago, there were four climb­ing gyms that opened in the Toronto area and I can go back to the store sales num­bers and tell you when those gyms opened,” he ex­plained. “And it’s not just a spike and then it dies, it pops up and keeps go­ing.”
