On May 27th we announced some big news, that The Nerd Gym is opening up a new, larger, cooler facility in the heart of downtown Tucson’s Warehouse Arts District. We’re super excited, and are grateful for the excitement everyone is sharing with us. This is going to be incredible, and lots of people have questions. So, here are some answers. If you have a question not answered here, please leave a comment and I’ll make sure it gets added to this FAQ.
Q: Is this a second location? Will the Northwest location remain open?
A: The Northwest location will remain open with a limited morning class schedule beginning July 5th. Northwest classes will be on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6am, 7am, 9am, and 10am. The Northwest location on Orange Grove Road will close on December 22, 2017 and all classes will be held at the Downtown location. From July through December both locations will be open, though Downtown will have a more robust schedule of classes and will host all workshops, special events, and nutrition classes as of July 5th. Full class schedules for current members to review are available at the Northwest reception desk.
Q: I’m not familiar with downtown parking. Will parking be easy to find?
A: Parking for our new location is easy. There are convenient metered parking spaces in front of the facility on Toole Ave. as well as parking at the 201 E. Toole parking lot. Paid parking is enforced from 8am to 5pm, so nearly all of our classes occur during the free parking times. The Toole Ave. Parking Lot is less than 2 blocks away and is very convenient.

Q: The Nerd Gym sounds awesome, but I don’t live in Tucson. How can I get in on all of this nerdy fitness goodness?
A: Beginning on June 1, 2017 we will be offering an online membership to help people all over to unlock their super powers and have fun with fitness. This will initially be in “beta” mode and offered only to members attending classes, but we will have it available to the whole world by the end of the year. Stay tuned as this develops!
