How do I get to Fit: To Be?
Fit: To Be is located in the Virginia Highlands neighborhood on North Highland Ave NE, behind American Roadhouse.
Where do I park?
Fit: To Be has a dedicated parking lot just steps away from the studio. Turn into the parking lot adjacent to our sign from North Highland Ave NE. The parking lot is shared with American Roadhouse, Highland Yoga, BenchMark PT and Beya Salon Studios.
Help! The lot is full!
Parking in the lot on weekends during brunch hours can be a little hectic. Therefore, we suggest that you plan to leave about 10 extra minutes early, so that you can secure parking during the brunch rush.
Can I shower at Fit: To Be?
Yes. Fit: To Be has a shower on site. We provide shampoo, body wash, clean towels, a hair dryer, deodorant, lotion, etc. - everything you would need to freshen up before or after working out.
Where do I store my stuff?
Fit: To Be has cubby storage for your things inside the studio. The cubbies are located inside the studio space away from prying eyes, yet also accessible and visible to you during your workout.
Is the studio clean?
Yes. We wipe down all equipment and mats after class with natural cleaning product. We also provide you with clean towels and water cups. The mirrors and barres are cleaned / wiped down several times daily.
What other amenities does Fit: To Be have?
Ice water infused with fresh fruit is available to all clients and is prepared daily. We also offer hot hand towels infused with eucalyptus and almond oil for your face and hands after class. Free coffee is available in the lobby. Clean water cups are available. Forget to bring a hair tie? No problem: we have extra in the mug on top of the hot hand towels in the lobby. Tampons, freshening wipes, and other bath and shower toiletries are also provided. You also do not need to bring your own yoga mat; the studio has plenty, which are cleaned with natural cleaning agent after each use. The bathroom has a separate toilet room with hooks to hang clothing. Hangers are available at the front desk.
What equipment will I need?
Equipment varies depending on the class and instructor. Fit: To Be staff will either lay out an “example” set of equipment at the front of the studio space displaying what you will need for the particular class or else tell you upon arrival what you will need.
How early do I need to arrive before a class?
We recommend that you arrive at least 10 minutes early to the studio so that you can check in with our front desk assistant, fill out paperwork, and get a studio tour. During this time, inform the front desk assistant of any injuries you have or have had previously so that the instructor can be informed.
I’ve arrived at the studio, but no one is at the front desk. What do I do?
The front desk assistant may be away from the desk either prepping the studio for class, or assisting another client. If no one is there to greet you when you first arrive in the lobby, don’t worry! You can approach the front desk and take a Liability Waiver and begin filling it out until the front desk assistant or instructor returns to check you into class.
How do I sign up for class?
There are a couple of ways. You can sign up online via this website by clicking on "schedule" under the Classes tab. You can also sign up using the MindBody Connect App on your Smartphone. In addition, you can always call us to reserve your spot ahead-of-time or sign up in person with the front desk assistant.
Can I just walk-in and take a class?
Of course! We welcome all! Just make sure to arrive a few minutes early and let the front desk assistant know that it’s your first time to the studio. Allow about 10 minutes before class to fill out the liability waiver and chat with our front desk assistant.
What should I wear to class?
Wear clothing that is comfortable for you to work out in. You may want to avoid very loose and/or baggy clothing as it can catch on the equipment. Sticky socks are not required, but may help to cushion the balls of your feet during certain exercises at the barre. Sneakers are not necessary or required for most classes, with a few exceptions. You MUST wear sneakers to participate in the following classes: TRX, Circuit Training and Fit: To Be Fusion. Of course, you are welcome to wear sneakers to the other classes if your doctor has advised you to or if you need ankle support.

Forgot to bring your workout clothes? No worries! We have a great collection of items for sale in our lobby, including a variety of tanks, shirts, sports bras, sticky socks, leggings/pants, and hoodies.
Is there an age restriction?
Only one: you must be at least 16 years old to participate in classes and/or private sessions at Fit: To Be.
What if I have an injury?
Let the front desk assistant and the instructor know about your injury. The instructor can give you modifications to the exercises. If anything starts to hurt in a bad way during your workout, stop the exercise and let the instructor know immediately.
Do I need to be in shape to work out at Fit: To Be?
We welcome clients of all fitness levels. Classes are for both beginner and advanced clients. It’s always a good idea to let your instructor know if you have any limitations or if you have never participated in a barre-like class before. Instructors can assist you during class by giving modifications to suit your level of fitness.
What class do you recommend I start out taking?
All classes are a good start. Look at our schedule and read the descriptions to pick a class which best suits your needs.

If you haven’t been working out, try Stretch & Tone.

Feeling intimidated? Don’t be! You can always start out your fitness journey with us by signing up for a Trio (semi-personal training) or a Private session and add group classes to your routine later. Trios (1 on 3) are great for getting individualized attention and learning/mastering your form for taking group classes.
What is your cancellation policy?
A class must be changed or cancelled at least 4 hours before the scheduled class time or it will be forfeited. If you are outside the 4 hour no-cancellation window, you can always move to another class or early cancel. A $5 fee will be charged to everyone who does not early cancel.

A Trio or Private must be changed or cancelled at least 24 hours before the scheduled time or it will be forfeited.
What if I show up late to class?
If the class isn’t full, then go ahead and check in and come into the studio. Try not to disturb other clients working out while you set up. Please do not enter the studio if you are showing up more than 10 minutes after the scheduled start time.

If the class has a waitlist, your spot may be given away and we will consider you a late cancellation.
What happens if I miss a class?
If you miss a class, it is considered a late cancellation and the above cancellation policy applies.
What is the waitlist?
Some of our classes sell out. But if the class you want is sold out, you can get on our wait list. As people cancel, we pick from our wait list in order. If you get a spot more than 4 hours before the scheduled start time of the class, we will notify you by email. If a spot doesn’t open 4 hours before class, you still have a chance of getting in. Just show up at least 5 minutes before class starts. That’s when we see how many reserved spots didn’t show up, and we start going through the wait list in order.
How easy is it to get into a class from the waitlist?
Pretty easy! It depends on the class, and in some classes we have a higher no-show rate than others. It depends how far back you are on the wait list as well.
When / how far in advance can I sign up for classes?
Classes: 1 month in advance

Trios: 1 week in advance

*Note: Fit: To Be reserves the right to change or cancel a class, or the instructor, at any time.
