What goes down: Remember those American Apparel lam leggings you bought last year in a last-ditch attempt to show up to that party dressed like a sexy Sufjan Stevens jailbird? Release them from the bottom of your drawer! At the Warehouse, you'll maneuver in the gym's trapeze apparatus while looking fabulous—and progress to aerial feats, including a somersault dismount. The Warehouse also offers a nine-month intensive program to transform you into a professional, aimed at 19- to 35-year-olds.
