We would like to extend our warmest welcome to you as a new member of our SWERVE community. SWERVE is an inclusive, generous community of the heart, fostering a non-competitive atmosphere that allows each person to feel comfortable and be themselves. Our instructors will exercise your mind, body, and spirit. Below is some helpful information on member benefits, prices, and policies. If you have any questions please feel free to ask one of our friendly staff members!
What’s the cancellation policy?
We have a 3-hour cancellation policy. Prior to three hours before class, cancelling is as simple as registering. Do it on the MindBody App or online (BTW, make sure to “favorite” SWERVE ®). You are responsible for managing your own schedule. If you have a frequent user pack, you will simply lose your class as if you had attended. If you have a membership, you will be charged $12 for a no show or $9 for a late cancellation. Switching classes will result in a late cancel if done two hours or less before class.
What’s the deal with parking?
We have a lot in front with 16 spaces, which are shared with the other units in the building. Parking on West 3rd Street is metered and costs $2/hour. Meters accept coins and cards. Sweetzer, La Jolla, Blackburn and West 1st Street all have 1-2 hour parking available free of charge. Read the signs, especially in regard to street cleaning. There is a $5 lot across the street at W 3rd and La Jolla.
Does SWERVE have a locker room and or shower facilities?
Yes. SWERVE has changing rooms available where you can store your belongings, and though there are cubbies to store your things, there are no lockable spots for your items. SWERVE has a shower in one of it’s 3 bathrooms, which is first come, first served. We offer towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion. It’s not bougie, but it’s convenient and wonderful.
Do I need to wear workout shoes for class or a gym workout?
I’m with ClassPass. Are some policies different for me?
Sometimes you’ll see that a class has more spaces available on our live scheduler than shown on the ClassPass site. We dedicate a percentage of spaces to ClassPass clients, the rest are for SWERVE members. If a class shows as full on ClassPass, but there are spaces available, ClassPassers are welcome to buy a single SWERVE class. It’s fast and easy.
At SWERVE, we honor our agreement with ClassPass. We encourage you to honor your agreement with ClassPass, as well. Please don’t ask to be marked present for a class you don’t plan to attend. It is unethical. Thank you for understanding.
What if the instructor changes for a class that I have pre-registered for?
I’m recovering from an injury. Should I take class at SWERVE®?
I’m pregnant. Can I still workout at SWERVE®?
Facts You Need to Know:
- Be early. It is disruptive to the teacher and other clients if you enter the studio after sessions have begun. If you must be late, please note, there is a 15 minute cut off. DO NOT ASK to have an exception made for you. You are already more than 15 minutes late to a class that’s 30-55 minutes.
- Please no perfumes or colognes.
- Turn off all ringers. No talking on your phone in class or in the gym.
- We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
We accept cash, checks (payable to SWERVE® – must provide valid ID), Visa, or Mastercard. $8 minimum for credit card charges.

All gym club and class series & packages are non-transferable & non-returnable. No returns, holds or freezes.
A returned check fee of $30 will be assessed for any checks that do not go through.
Package Extensions and Membership Freezes
Packages are non transferable, non returnable, and do expire at the time specified upon activation. This is notated on your receipt (which is automatically emailed to you) and on the printed class schedule. If you have a class package (5, 10 or 15 class series) and your package expires with unused classes, an extension may be purchased to reactivate your expired classes. Inquire at front desk to purchase an extension. Additionally, if you purchase a package while you have unused classes remaining on your prior package, please note that your new package’s activation date will be backdated to the date of your earliest unpaid class and that your new package will activate your expired classes for the valid activation period of your new package. There are no holds or freezes for packages.
Memberships are different. Monthly auto-renew memberships have all the benefits of being a member, plus the huge discount in pricing. Memberships have the privilege of allowing a suspension (for example for travel) for one month at a time (with at least 7 days advance written notice.) In special circumstances of injury, a review may be granted only with a doctor’s memo citing a health condition or injury and specifying dates of injury, inactivity and inability to workout. Please note, a doctor’s memo does not guarantee a package extension and a review may take up to 2 weeks. Nonetheless, we guarantee you a fair and honest review. We want you to be well and healthy. Working out at SWERVE is one of the best ways to improve your overall health and well being and it is our purpose to help you become stronger and and healthier.

What's A Package? What's A Membership?
Packages are pre-paid groups of classes that are discounted when budgeted into a finite time frame. You receive a discount on each class, because you agree to use all of the classes consistently before the expiration date. Packages are perfect for frequent users who want the benefit of a discount but don’t want the long-term committment of a membership.
If you’re taking about 1 class every 2 weeks, the 5-pack is for you. Each pre-paid class costs $18 and you have plenty of time to rest between workouts. These classes must be used within 2 months, before expiring.
If you’re taking about 1 class a week, the 10-pack is a good choice for you. Each class costs $16.50 and you still have plenty of time to rest and even take 2 weeks off during the 3 month active period.
If you want a bigger discount and you’re taking about a class a week, the 15-pack is for you. Each class costs $15.33, you still have loads of time to rest and still take a week off during the 4 month activiation period.
Memberships are for people who work out more than once a week. The discount is huge, but committment is required. Memberships allow you to workout 7 times a week for $5.50 a class. This is obviously a great deal. In order to get this deal, along with all of the other benefits of membership, a 6-month committment is required.
