TBA owners Ben Sutton, a native of Chattanooga, and Stephanie Sutton (who gravitated to Chattanooga from Florida), were also enchanted by the allure of the bouldering and fast growing climbing community. TBA was the center of that community. As the neighborhood location of the tiny TBA gym underwent change, Ben and Steph were looking to move. Lisa Rands and her husband Wills Young dreamed of creating state-of-the-art climbing walls to better achieve their ambitions as climbing coaches, while Isaac Caldiero wanted to develop his own ninja zone to bring his love of ninja to the area. All of them, and all of Chattanooga, needed somewhere that serious climbers and athletes could congregate and that they could make their home-from-home!
Ultimately, it was Lisa Rands and husband Wills Young who provided the driving force, founding The Synergy Project, and bringing this amazing gym to life! Because great things are even better together.
