OBSTACLE DESIGNER/BUILDER AND GRAPHIC DESIGNER
Aidan Ishii started his journey in obstacle fitness in late 2014 as a fun and effective way to crosstrain for swimming. He quickly became enamored with the community and experience of obstacle training. Soon after, he began coaching as well as building obstacles and courses during the summers. Officially joining Stage 4 Designs in 2017, Aidan worked part time as he finished high school and pursued a degree in graphic design at Boston University. After graduating, he became a full-time member of the Stage 4 team during the spring of 2022. In the shop, he is a part of everything from product design to construction and testing, as well as coming up with and prototyping new climbing holds and obstacles.
