What should I wear?
FOR GARAGE BARRE
Comfy activewear (nothing super loose though as it can hinder movements and we want to make sure you're form is on target!) Most of us go barefoot but you can wear sticky socks if your tootsies get cold or sweaty or your athletic shoes if you have any foot issues such as plantar faciitis. Please do not wear regular socks - they are too slippery and could cause injury.
FOR GARAGE BIKE
Any type of athletic clothing that you feel comfortable in is suitable, although we suggest pants that fit tight at the ankles and fabrics that are sweat wicking. Men must wear a shirt during class. We also require indoor cycling shoes with LOOK DELTA or SPD cleats. We have limited sizes available for rent at the front desk for $2 (sizes ladies 5.5 - men’s 13). All New Biker Babes get complimentary shoe rental.

WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
You may park anywhere on the Murfreesboro Square that you wish. There is also a ton parking spots on Vine St (along the striped wall) or at the Library parking garage. Parking spots marked 2 hrs are only monitored during typical work day hours from 8-5. If you happen to get a ticket (which is rare), they are only $3. Don't be afraid, parking is really no problem at all.
WHAT TYPE OF EXPERIENCE DO I NEED?
NONE! No experience or fitness level is required to participate. We welcome the young, the older, the middle-aged. It doesn't matter if you're an elite athlete or haven't worked out in years - or maybe even ever - you will be challenged at an appropriate level for you! We welcome ages 13 and older with a participating parent. We do require all GB Cardio Jam participants to have taken 5 classic Garage Barre classes prior to attending a Cardio Jam class just so knowledge of basic barre moves is under your belt.
CAN I TAKE CLASSES IF I’M PREGNANT?
You may take classes if you have a doctor's note permitting you to exercise. Please notify us BEFORE the start of class, so we can help you make any necessary modifications.
PS: Barre is an amazing post-natal workout!
CAN I TAKE CLASS IF I HAVE AN INJURY?
Please indicate any injuries on your new client form and arrive a few minutes early to class to speak to your instructor about any necessary modifications. PLEASE tell us before class and make sure to listen to your doctor’s orders!
WILL GARAGE BARRE + BIKE CLASSES HELP ME LOSE WEIGHT?
Pairing consistent Garage Barre + Bike classes with a healthy diet can definitely help you shed unwanted pounds.
BESIDES CLASS, WHAT ELSE DOES GB PROVIDE?
We provide all of the equipment you’ll need in class including your mat! You are welcome to bring your own yoga mat or kneeling pad but please no outside weights or other equipment. We provide towels, lockers for your personal belongings, dressing rooms, & on site restrooms. Cycling shoes are available for rent at the front desk for $2 (sizes ladies’ 5.5 - men’s 13). (We do NOT take cash but can charge your card on file!) You are more than welcome to wear your one cycling shoes as long as they have LOOK DELTA or SPD cleats.
How can I cancel my reserved class in the app OR WEBSITE?
Log into your account, if using the app, first click the person icon on the bottom row, then click the little pink person icon in the top right, choose “My Classes” and then simply hit UNRESERVE next to the class you want to cancel.
Do you accept walk ins?
You never know when you might snag a spot so you can always come as a walk-in. We can't guarantee a spot so enrolling ahead of time is a good idea. All paying and booking is done ONLINE here or via our GB App. If you walk-in, you MUST have already created an account and pre-purchased classes as to not hold up the class from beginning on time.
What does "W“ mean when signing up for a class?
We have 25 spots available to book per class. There are extra spots available on the waitlist. When the schedule has a “W” by the class, that means it’s on a waitlist. You may put yourself on the waitlist and will be notified via email or push notifications from the app when you are transferred into a class (you MUST be subscribed to our emails or enable push notifications in the app to receive alerts). The system transfers waitlisters to open spots all the way up until an hour before class. Please be sure to check your email or app so you know to arrive for class. You will most likely get into class if you are on a waitlist. Please remove yourself from the waitlist if you do not plan on attending because someone behind you in line may want to come to class. If you get transferred into class from the waitlist and do not check and do not cancel or no show, you will be charged the late cancel or no show fees accordingly to your credit card on file. If the schedule has no sign up option, that simply means there are no spots in the class or on the waitlist at the moment.
How do I join the Garage Barre Babes private Facebook group?
We are big fans of community if you couldn't tell. One of the best ways to get to know the other Babes is to join our private Facebook group for active participants. Simply click the button below to request entrance.
Do you have childcare?
No, unfortunately we do not. We also do NOT allow children to sit at the studio while you are in class even if they are the most well behaved kiddos on the planet.
My friends and I want to barre together. Do we each need to create our own accounts?
Yes. Each new client must create their own account, book their spot and sign our digital waiver before their first class. Please note that classes are non transferable to other client accounts. You may purchase a friend a giftcard.
Can I buy a class and give it as a gift?
No, you cannot sell or transfer your class to someone else. We offer gift cards in any denomination for you to purchase for your friends or to give as gifts.

DO I NEED SPECIAL SHOES FOR GARAGE BIKE?
We offer complimentary shoes if you are in your New Biker Babe Special but have limited sizes (ladies’ 5.5 - men’s 13). After your New Babe Special is up, shoe rentals are $2. Our bikes are LOOK DELTA & SPD compatible and we can guide you in purchasing your own cycling shoes.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I BRING?
Bring some water, feel free to bring your own yoga mat for Garage Barre classes. Soon we will have water available for purchase as well as refillable GB water bottles.
WHAT DO I DO WHEN I GET THERE?
Check in on the iPad by entering your phone number or email attached to your account or check in with the front desk staff. They will show you around if you’re new. They can hook you up with shoes if you need them and answer any questions you may have.
WHAt DO I DO IF I’M RUNNING LATE?
We will hold your spot up to exactly 2 minutes before class begins. Then, we will release all unclaimed spots to waitlisters and walk-ins in that order.
I AM NEW TO INDOOR CYCLING, WILL SOMEONE HELP ME SET UP?
YES! If you are a new rider, please arrive NO LATER than 15 minutes before class so we can get you in your shoes, and show you how to set up your bike properly and clipped in for a safe and FUN ride!
WHAT IF I CAN’T DO EVERYTHING IN THE CLASS? I HAVEN’T WORKED OUT IN AWHILE.
One of the best things about barre & indoor cycling is that it can be adapted to any fitness level. We created GB with the mindset that even the unfit “fit in.” Take class at your own pace, if you need a break, take it! If you can’t do a certain move (yet), NO BIG DEAL! We are into community over competition and certainly not into perfection! Just do your best!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE CAN I BOOK MY CLASSES?
You can book out up to 30 days in advance. Please only book classes or waitlists you plan on attending so other’s have a fair chance at coming to class as well! Hogging spots and cancelling the ones you don’t feel like coming to right before the cut off isn’t cool. Let’s be babes who support babes!
Do the Classes Expire?
Yes. Each class package and membership has different expiration terms as stated in their descriptions. If you aren’t able to use your classes in the alloted time, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you out.
Can I request a specific bike when reserving?
Yes. You are able to view our Garage Bike studio map of numbered bikes when reserving your class and can reserve your preferred bike.
Do you have locker rooms?
Yes. We have lockers available to store your personal items. You’ll need to provide the lock. any locks left on lockers will be cut at the end of the day and items put in the lost and found. We also have 2 changing rooms and 2 on site restrooms. Our pipes are quite old (1887) so we ask that you only go #1 and only use minimal tp and flush nothing else down.
CAN I MAKE THE BIKE SEAT MORE COMFY?
As a beginner, the bike and bike seat require a little getting used to. You’ll feel like a cowgirl or by fresh off the horse 😂 just for the first few rides. During this phase, it sometimes helps to wear padded bike shorts or use a cushioned gel seat. In a short period of time you won't necessarily need either. We call it getting your #crotchcallus 😂😂😂
DO I NEED TO CREATE AN ACCOUNT?
Yes, every participant MUST have an account with a signed waiver and purchased classes before attending. You can do this online or on our free Garage Barre + Bike App available in the iTunes App Store or the Google Play store.
How often should I barre or bike?
We think a good even mix of Garage Barre and Bike classes is the perfect low impact, high intensity combo to give you crazy endorphins, sweat out toxins, make you stronger, increase your balance, feel good about yourself, induce confidence, & help you sleep better.
