When can you train?
Once your membership is approved, you may come in and train any time during our open member training hours. There is no limit to “how much” you use the space during member hours, though there are some limits to “when.” All training time needs to be scheduled 24 hours in advance to run.
Each months we will have designated Member times:
Current times: DECEMBER
Mondays 8:30-11am, 2-8pm
Saturdays 8am- 2pm, 4-9pm
Sundays 9-2pm, 4-7pm
Members are also welcome to come to open gyms at no additional cost. Just email to let us know, or just show up- if you see that open gym is running (3 or more students enrolled.)
Secret Circus classes and private lessons have first priority for aerial points or other equipment that they might need. We also may have space rentals or parties (if Covid-19 restrictions would be lifted) and member training could be closed during those times, and members would be notified.
please check in with the coach or front desk staff if you have any questions about what space is available. Once your membership is approved, you will receive instructions on how to book your training times.
Training times are limited to a schedule, so that we can always have a coach in the room. these times may change monthly depending on class schedules.
To be approved for a Training Membership, there is a one-time $50 assessment fee that pays for a 30 - 45 minute assessment and orientation.
In the assessment, we will assess your skill level and together set clear guidelines for what kinds of activities you are approved to perform in the space, based on your current level of proficiency. You will also receive an orientation of the space, equipment, and rigging system.
Equipment can be rented for an extra charge of $20 a day, or $5 per hour. You may also bring your own with approval/inspection. Rental cost covers wear and tear, and cleaning of equipment after use due to Covid-19 guidelines.
Space in our member training program will be limited due to social distancing guidelines.
If you need to take a break from training with us, we can put your membership on hold for a maximum of 3 months, free of charge.
Holds for auto-pay memberships can begin only after the initial 3 month commitment period.
While your membership is on hold, you will not pay your membership dues, but you can re-activate your membership upon return without the need to complete a new assessment or application. If you would like to place a hold on your membership, please email email@example.com with the exact dates that you would like to start and end your membership freeze.
