Are Your Classes Free?

No. While there are no memberships or building fees, classes are not free. Our monthly expenses average $3000+ per month. Each of your dollars goes toward keeping the doors open. We want your fitness to be worth something to you. As a community K-Town only works if we are all doing what we can.

How Much Do Your Classes Cost?

We are sincere in our mission of making fitness accessible to all and would like your personal financial situation and generosity to be your guide. We also believe we are providing a superior product. As a starting point we suggest a $5 per class donation. Some classes require preregistration and/or a set fee and are marked with an asterisk (see below).

We Believe…

K-Town Shakedown was founded on the belief that fitness and health is for everyone. We provide certified instructor led classes in a safe, non-intimidating environment.

Whether you are just beginning your journey into fitness or are well on your way, we want to build relationships and offer quality fitness classes to help you achieve your best version of you!

We want to challenge you to consider what your health is worth?

Our Instructors

Our philosophy for donation based fitness comes with the added benefit that our instructors don't work for KTown Shakedown. They work for you. Each instructor is their own boss and has the freedom to build their class to serve your best interests. This means our instructors are paid by you. Be sure to bring your donation for each individual class, so the instructor is paid for their hard work. Instructors give 30% of their earnings to help pay for the costs of the studio. Please be generous!
