Access
Abilities

Wheelchair Access

Our parking lot has 2 handicap parking stalls and a wheelchair ramp.

Most beginner silks and hoop classes take place the mezzanine aka the loft (stair access only). Upstairs classes are clearly indicated on the schedule and registration. If you need an introductory class on the main floor, we can absolutely accommodate you - we'll just need to arrange a class time for when the main space is available. Please email admin@circofit.com with this request.

We have one Barrier-Free washroom (gender neutral).

Do You Have a Service Dog?

Service dogs are welcome! We recommend that you bring a "Service Human" for your Service Dog for their first few visits. A circus gym has lots of strange stimuli and we want to ensure that your canine helper isn't overwhelmed. Please contact us prior to your first visit at admin@circofit.com so that we can be prepared to help you and your Service Dog get settled.

Are You a Person with Limb Difference?

Limb difference doesn't have to stop you from becoming an aerialist! There are great examples on instagram of circus athletes with limb difference. That said, climbing and certain poses may need to be adapted, so it may be best to arrange for one-on-one training in the beginning. We would love to work with you! Please email admin@circofit.com to schedule a free consultation.

Do You Have Limited Vision or Seizures?

Please inform us and your coach so that we can cater our instruction to your needs and keep you safe in the air.
