Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Salt Pump Climbing Company has won two 2019 awards in Maine!

Who says fitness has to be boring? If you’re looking to get fit and have fun doing it, look no further than Salt Pump Climbing Company in Scarborough.

Salt Pump Climbing Company has received hundreds of reviews on four verified sites with an average rating of 4.94 stars, earning them a stellar Rating Score™ of 97.35 and two 2019 Top Rated Local awards for ranking among the top 100 businesses and the top five fitness centers in all of Maine!

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews that got them there:

“I’ve only been a member for a couple of months now, but I can’t say enough good things about this place. I’m a newcomer to climbing, starting at 40 years of age and still dealing with a healthy fear of heights (still trying to work up trust in the auto-belays!). Although most of the staff and clientele are younger than me, I never feel unwelcome or out of place. Everyone is friendly, and anytime I have a question or need beta, there is someone there to help. The place has a great vibe!” – Mike S.

Not Your Average Fitness Center

Will Wild, the General Manager of Salt Pump Climbing Company, took a few minutes out of his day to tell us a little more about this one-of-a-kind fitness center and the impressive online reputation they’ve managed to build.

To start our conversation, we asked Will what it is that sets Salt Pump Climbing Company apart from their competition in Maine. Here’s what he had to say:

“One of the things we pride ourselves on is having a family atmosphere, and it’s open to everybody. It’s not like an exclusive, members-only style atmosphere here. Everybody is helping everybody to get better all the time. We like to provide a clean and inviting facility for people to practice their rock climbing and have a safe community where they can feel at home. That family oriented quality is what puts us ahead.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Salt Pump Climbing Company and how they give back and make the world a better place. Here’s Will’s response:

“Our mission is to be the leading center for climbing, adventure and good living in southern Maine. We strive to serve our community by always reflecting the core values of the outdoors world.”

Building Success With a Tight-Knit Community

When we asked Will about Salt Pump Climbing Company’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he said:

“Honestly, it’s the climbing community. We’re a very tight-knit group here with our members and climbers. In general, if you have ever looked into the climbing community, it is a very positive atmosphere. We’re all encouraging each other all the time, and there is a large team aspect to it.”

Will went on to add:

“A lot of people who come in here are blown away by the community that we support and represent.”

Congratulations to the team at Salt Pump Climbing Company for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Will, for taking the time to speak with us!
