Announcing Sender One - Lakewood!
After 3 years of searching, we have found the ideal spot and signed a lease for what will become our 3rd Full Service Gym, in Lakewood, CA. This coming gym means a lot to our team, and represents years of hard work to bring to you. Let’s take a look at why!
Sender One Lakewood will be located at 4949 Lakewood Blvd, two miles north of the Long Beach Airport and just across the street from the Lakewood Center. With abundant shops, transit routes, and food options nearby, Lakewood makes the perfect place for locals to grab a climb and errands in the same run. At only ten minutes away from Long Beach Airport, it’s also never been easier to get some altitude before you take off to the skies.
Whether you’re a student at CSULB or a parent looking for the perfect place to keep you and the kids active, Sender One Lakewood will always be right around the corner. It won’t just be a gym to visit, but a vibrant point of gathering in the heart of a thriving community.

Sender One Lakewood will be 28,000 square feet, with routes fit for the style of every climber. (For comparison LAX has 30,000 sq. ft in floor space, and SNA main gym is 24,000). Lakewood will deliver the same top-tier Sender One and Sender City experiences you’ve come to expect, while taking our amenities and look even further!

Before opening, we’ll be raising the roof to 50 feet to accommodate our new Walltopia walls! Under the new roof will be sport climbing, Sender City, briefing and party rooms, a separate Sender City weekend entrance, and even more bouldering.
With lovely, deep sightlines and myriad nooks, the space will feel both grand and full of hidden gems you’ll be eager to send.
More than Bomber Holds
Sender One Lakewood will ensure you can climb in comfort and style, with bathrooms, lockers, showers, SAUNAS, laundry, yoga, and fitness facilities. These amenities and enriching programs ensure that you can both grow as a climber and care for your whole self while visiting Sender One Lakewood. As with all Sender One locations, you can also look forward to plenty of community-building events that will build not just your technique but your sense of belonging.
It took us 10 years to open our first 3 gyms and grow our team to 137 people. In the next two years, we will open 3 new gyms and add 100+ new jobs. As our team grows, so too will our community of climbers. We are ecstatic to keep growing our community, on and off the wall. Our supportive culture and our vision of climbing that’s inclusive to all levels of experience and all ages are ready for the next phase of expansion.
We can’t tell you how unbelievably proud we are of Sender One and everyone who has been a part of our journey. We look forward to sending these new projects with all of you and keep showing how our shared passion is at the heart of what we’re out to achieve!
