Rage Cage NH, located in downtown Nashua, NH, is proudly owned and operated by Tedd. Our mission is to provide a safe space where you, your friends, and your family can let loose, relieve stress, and have a great time! From the moment I opened this establishment, it was clear in my mind that regardless of who you are, the color of your skin, who you love, who you voted for, or your vaccination status, as long as you come here with love in your heart, you will be embraced with love.
I moved to New Hampshire in 2008 from Wisconsin after joining City Year NH, an intensive full-time volunteer program under AmeriCorps. Throughout that year of dedicated service, I discovered the importance of building community. I continued my commitment for a second year of AmeriCorps through Goodwill of New England, where I served children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities at a summer camp in southern NH. After completing my college degree in Manchester, I started working in corporate insurance sales—a job that was exhausting. However, I am grateful for that experience as it introduced me to some incredible individuals who helped shape the foundation of my dream to serve my community while securing my own future. For me, Rage Cage is not solely about making a profit. I aim to provide a service that offers an outlet for all individuals, with a particular focus on those battling mental health issues and substance abuse. I see you, acknowledge your worth, and believe in your capacity for recovery.
On a personal level, I face daily challenges with mental health struggles. Opening a business during covid while dealing with executive dysfunction, ADHD, depression, anxiety, complex PTSD, and an eating disorder is undeniably difficult, but I am a fighter. Remember, hustle, hit, and never quit. We possess an inner strength that surpasses our own imagination.
Rage Cage NH is here to offer you a space to channel your frustrations. Physical activities like smashing can trigger the release of endorphins—chemicals that interact with receptors in your brain, reducing your perception of pain and creating a positive feeling in the body. This feeling, often described as "euphoric," is similar to the sensation experienced after exercise and can contribute to a more positive and energized outlook on life, which has been shown to assist with depression and anxiety.
Whether you're a first-time smasher or a frequent visitor, we warmly welcome you with open arms.
