Hey Santa Barbara, have you met Jake yet?

Meet Jake von Ehrenclark - Manager of The BoardRoom!

Before joining our crew as the BoardRoom manager, Jake von Ehrenclark started climbing with us way back in the SLO-Op days!
Jake is a true Central Coast local who grew up in SLO and has been a part of the Santa Barbara community for the last 8 years. You’ll likely catch him out on the trails, or at his favorite local coffee spot, Handlebar Coffee.
“I have wanted a gym similar in style to the BoardRoom for more than a few years now. At one point even looking into starting one with a friend of mine during the early days of Covid. So when I heard The Pad was coming to town, I was stoked to be a part of bringing it here.”

We are still bringing the full experience of The Pad to Santa Barbara, and Jake is a big part of helping us shape that future. “Looking forward to a larger gym in the area that will attract even more UCSB students being much more accessible to them. Some nice tall ropes and a robust training facility has been a need of the community and stoked to see how it’ll bring the community together.”
Come by to meet Jake and the rest of #thepadfam at The BoardRoom, now open at Magnolia Center.
