The vision for the Chicago Slackliners Association materialized through its founder Michael Matrejek’s passionate study of the mind and its integral association with the body. Slacklining is similar to tightrope walking. The main difference is that a flat piece of climbing webbing is used.
Michael Matrejek works as a graphic designer and has had previous experience with WordPress sites. He switched to using Wix after learning about the platform from his boss. The Slackliners Association’s website was built on Wix, and the organization has grown immensely from one sole member in April 2013 to nearly 100 members by October.
