Is This For Me?

If you have seen a medical doctor about your injury and have been cleared for physical activity, then you can. Our coaches work with each individual to modify workouts and movements to accommodate injury. We work to strengthen your entire body while not aggravating the injured area. As you gain strength, you may see your injury lessen or even completely heal. However, we are not doctors or mind readers, so we need your help and feedback to make sure the modifications are helping. We also expect you to use good judgement and common sense to avoid aggravating an injury. If something does not feel quite right, STOP and talk to your coach.

Short answer is no. With us, you will learn how to workout more safely than you ever may have before. You will be taught how to move and lift safely and with proper form. You will be under the eyes of your coach in every class. Each workout will be modified and scaled to match your current fitness, skill and strength levels. Listening to your body and using common sense helps avoid injury. If anything ever feels “off”, talk to your coach. By working together, coaches and members can make good choices and prevent injuries.
We get this question a lot. No, you won’t get bulky. It takes a very specific diet and training regime to get “bulky.” You will, however, see more muscle definition as you get lean.

Yes you can and working out is a great start, BUT you can’t outtrain a bad diet. For lasting change and weight loss, we offer an individualized nutrition program with customized meal plans. Meet with one of our nutrition experts to help you take control of your health, and provide support and accountability to achieve your goals.

Membership Policies

Membership dues are drafted automatically on a monthly basis.

You may temporarily freeze your membership. The only restrictions is that the start and end dates are always either the 1st of 15th of a given month. Hold requests must be emailed at [email protected].

If you have a 13x/Month Membership, you have 13 classes to use per month. They do not rollover to the next month. You can use your classes any time during the month to help match your schedule.
Nope! Memberships renew on a monthly basis without any long term commitment. We only require notice via email, 30 days prior to your last bill date, for membership cancellation.

Yes! To upgrade, hold or make any changes to your membership type, please email [email protected] , 7 days* prior to your bill date. (* This excludes cancellations, which require 30 days advance notice)

You really want to leave? Ok, but we’ll miss you when you go. Please remember to cancel Thirty days prior to your next billing date. Email your cancellation request to [email protected] , fill out the super short exit survey and it that’s all there is to it.

If you are more than 5 minutes late, for a full class, your spot may be given away if someone is waiting. If you are more than 10 minutes late to class, you will need to wait until the next class. This is for your safety since you have missed the class instruction and a good portion of the warm up by the 10-minute mark.

  • From 8:30am-4:30pm please be sure to park only in our designated parking spots or on the street.

Please check our schedule of classes HERE. If you are stopping by in between class times, it is possible the gym will be closed.  If you have a 24/7 access membership, then we are never closed!

Yup! Each restroom not only has showers but also separate changing rooms to give you enough space to get ready to work out or go on a hot date or both!

We love dogs! If you have a friendly pup that doesn’t mind being around people and other dogs, feel free to bring them with you. We even have a designated Pooch Parking area! Here are some rules to keep everyone one comfortable and happy:

  • Dogs must be leashed at all times.
  • During workouts, dogs must be kept in one of the Pooch Parking areas. Do not tie pups to the pullup rigs.
  • Pups must be able to get along with other dogs and people, as well as hang out quietly during workouts.
  • Do not bring your dogs to our Yoga due to the nature of the classes.
  • Keep all dogs out of the Mobility Area.

Gym Etiquette

One of the major reasons our style of training works is the members themselves. You work out together, you succeed together, and you grow together. The support and motivation you provide each other creates an environment of success. We expect you to cheer each other on, help each other out, and leave no one behind.
You do. If you got it out, you put it away. Where you got it. Neatly.
Introduce yourself! Remember what your first class was like? You may have been intimidated, nervous, and shy. They are probably feeling the same way, so make them feel comfortable!
Keep your hands in the chalk bucket while applying it. If you have a chalk dust cloud around while you’re applying it, you’re doing it wrong.
We cap our class sizes to make sure everyone has a top notch experience, so we strongly recommend registering for the classes you want to attend. Controlling class size allows maintenance of high quality training. Smaller classes means more hands-on feedback you need to be successful. This is not doable if an unlimited number of members are allowed to attend each class. You can try to attend a class without registering, but if that class is full, the registered members have priority.

Gym Etiquette Cont…

If you are more than 10 minutes late to class, you need to wait until the next class. Being more than 10 minutes late means you have missed key parts of class: the warmup and the instruction. Classes start on time and we expect everyone to be ready to go at that time. No exceptions.

We understand life happens. If you are within the four hour window for canceling class on your app, please email [email protected] to let us know you will not make it.

If we do not receive any notice, the class will appear as a no show.

No Show Policy:

  • Unlimited Members: $5 fee for any no show
  • 13x Members: No fee, but it counts as one of your sessions
Yes. EVERYONE benefits from review and practice. Also, you set a great example for newer members that may not be as confident as you. Doing your own thing creates distractions and increases chances of injury.

Yes and yes! We have Bring a Friend Day the first Friday of every month! Your friend can register for a class HERE. For every friend of yours who joins, you will receive a $150 credit towards your membership. After your friend has joined, email us at [email protected] to receive your credit, and thank you for sharing our awesome community!
