WORKOUTS

At Circus Warehouse, we strive for a safe and enjoyable workout environment and pride ourselves on our warm and generous acrobatic and aerial community. The Warehouse is a professional space and does have some constraints appropriate to the level of individual concentration and safety concerns needed for the serious athletic practitioners who train with us.

Workouts are NOT a facility rental and are accommodated at Circus Warehouse’s discretion. Times are subject to change and are not guaranteed. Please check in with the office if you are not sure about the best times for point availability. Workouts are not for commercial use or teaching. The Warehouse does not specifically rent points for workouts. If you are needing to book a rehearsal, please contact the office. You may share 20 and 30-Workout Cards with a partner (one partner only). If you are confident to work out on your own, you can pay the daily fee or buy a workout card and work around what is happening at the Warehouse. You can stay as long as you need to complete your workout, but we might need to move you around depending on class schedules and other goings-on. We do not charge by the hour for workouts as the professional crowd often needs elaborate warm-up and cool-down periods and we encourage both.

If it is your first workout at the Warehouse, see the front desk to sign a waiver, and to find out which apparatuses are intended for general use. On your first visit the front staff will walk you through the procedure of rigging. You may use your own equipment with permission from the office staff. We inspect every piece of equipment that comes into the Warehouse. We retain the right to disallow the use of any piece of equipment that we deem to be in any way unsafe. To workout at the Warehouse, you must be a current practitioner of circus arts and be confident of your ability in the air and on the ground.

PAYMENT FOR WORKOUTS

Workouts can be paid for as a Single Workout or with a Workout Card which is a virtual card. You sign in at the front desk and check off the section that indicates which sort of workout arrangement you have. Workout Cards should be purchased in person or by phone. They are NOT currently available online.

NEW RULES ABOUT SHARING CARDS

5 and 10-Workout Cards MAY NOT be shared (this is a change). 20 and 30-Workout cards MAY BE SHARED but only with ONE OTHER PERSON. Each person must purchase his or her own 5 or 10-Workout cards. If you already are sharing a card, you may continue to do so until it is completed, after which you will need to follow the new rules for cards.

NEW RULES CONCERNING CLASS CARDS THAT COME WITH WORKOUTS

There are Workout Cards — bought in person at the Warehouse — and there are Class Cards, which you can purchase online or in person. Class Cards that entitle you to workouts in addition to classes should not be used or shared for the purpose of workouts only. The Class Card is intended for people who regularly take classes at the Warehouse and need additional workout time. The Workout Cards are for people who only work out. Circus Warehouse retains the right to decide on an case by case basis whether or not to allow a shared card of any sort. This is a big Warehouse and we pay our rent by running classes. The workouts are an accommodation and we need to be sure that the space is shared equitably. Thank you for your understanding.
