The Impact Sports facility is moving at a beat of its own. There is a good sized room stocked for Cross Fit. Other there, rowing machines neatly parked, waiting for the next WOD (workout of the day). Here, a row of Universal weight racks, ready for squatting, dead lifting and basically getting in shape. If you have ever tried Cross Fit, you know it is loud, fast, powerful and filled with heavy looking weight bars.
There are a number of independent businesses within the Sports Stable at Superior.
The Sticks Coffee shop is sharp. It serves beloved Boulder roaster Ozo Coffee and offers commanding views of the soon to be completed Downtown Superior as well as stunning mountain views to the west.
Or grab lunch upstairs Brunelleschi’s. My guide, Sam, tells me the eatery serves thirty different beers and at lunch hour you can get the pizza special for just ten bucks. The restaurant pipes in hockey games being played onsite. What an amazingly cool opportunity – enjoy a dinner out while watching your youngster televised into the diner!

Thank You Sam And Garret For Tour
Had a great experiencing getting an amazing tour of the Sports Stable from Sam, in management/sales and his college intern. The guys showed me the entire place. On the day of my visit, the massive 40 yards x 75 yards indoor fields (that’s 27,000 square feet) are being utilized by a children’s summer camp. Hint: book now for next year; the camp is uber popular.
One of the coolest, behind the scenes things we checked out – the Zamboni room. I got a quick lesson in how they work, saw a pile of fresh snow, which felt incongruous with 90 plus temps outside and stepped into the room that makes the ice. I shot a quick video of that room, filled with piping, motors, fans and deafeningly loud.
