Who We Are
N-Flux is fitness that matters.
We are a community that meaningfully engages with the world. We train here to "get out there."
We believe that fitness is not defined by the number on the scale, inches around your waist, or your BMI.
Fitness is about what you can do — for yourself and in the service of others.
What We Do
Traverse our environment efficiently
Maintain full range of motion throughout our bodies
Lift heavy objects safely
Defend ourselves and our loved ones

What is the "New Student Intro" Class?
The New Student Intro is an active class providing an introduction to the fundamental movements you’ll be using in Krav Maga Foundations. This class is FREE and does NOT count towards your two class pass. Come in comfortable attire ready to work out. You can take this class anytime prior to your first Krav Maga Foundations course.
What should I bring?
Please bring a water bottle and towel. For first-timers and heavy-bag fitness participants gloves and other necessary equipment is provided on site.
Shoes are only permitted on hardwood floors. For sparring and Jiu jitsu classes, shoes are not permitted on the mats.
How early should I arrive before class?
If it’s your first time, try to come to class at least 5 minutes in advance. Our staff will quickly go through your paperwork and provide a brief introduction to the class and the space.
If you are attending a Krav Foundations class for the first time, please sign up for the "New Student Intro" course, starting 30 minutes prior to your first class.
Is there anything I shouldn’t bring?
Jewelry cannot be worn during classes for your safety and that of others.
We do not have locker space, so please be careful with valuables as Stay N-Flux cannot be held liable for any property loss or damage.
Can I have a tour of the studio?
Because we are only open during class hours and because all of our instructors teach during that time, we are unable to accommodate tours. We encourage you to jump right in with our two class trial pack.
Do you have locker rooms and showers?
We have changing rooms on-site at N-Flux. We also have an agreement with Washington Sports Club (next door to N-Flux) for our members to use their facilities (including showers) at a significantly discounted rate. If you are interested in locking down this rate, please email Colleen at firstname.lastname@example.org
If I didn’t sign up for a class, can I just show up? If a class is full, is there a waitlist?
Please sign up for every class you take. You can sign up anytime using our website or the Stay N-Flux app.
We do not have a waitlist. Things get messy. Check the schedule periodically to see if spots become available.
Is there a class cancellation policy?
Classes cancelled less than 12 hours prior to the start of the class incur the full cost of the session.
How far in advance can I sign up for a class?
If it’s on the schedule, it’s fair game.
If I bought the early bird classes, how do I add them to my account?
Our staff will check early-bird signups and handle transferals to the new system upon coming to your first session.
Can I bring a friend? Do you have a referral program?
Yes. We offer a two class introductory special for $30 for new members/friends. If you have a question or special circumstance with a guest or visitor, contact us. We’ll work with you.
For every year-long contract you refer, you will get one month’s membership reimbursed to your account.
