Airborne Canton is pleased to announce that we’ve opened part of our park up to Zenit Gymnastics out of Canton! Zenit moved out of their old location just up the street and into an enormous expanded space inside our facility. They officially started offering classes the first week of April!

Airborne Canton and Zenit Gymnastics Summer Gymnastics Camp
In addition to having the Zenit team located inside the Airborne facility, we’re also excited to share that this summer, we’re partnering to bring summer campers the opportunity to play in the gym and jump on the trampolines! The date, time and pricing is still to be determined, but we’re working out those details and look forward to sharing with you soon!

In an effort to bring multiple options to our customers at Airborne Canton, we recently partnered with North Georgia Aerials to bring a fun new way to #GETAIRBORNE! These classes are designed for all ages and abilities, leaving room for anyone to give Aerial Silks and Acro a try!
Most of the first time classes require a simple text reservation before you come. Don’t be shy about giving it a try, we’ve got a class that suits just about everyone!
Aerials: learning to move in silks, sling and trapeze
Acro: playing airplane on someone’s feet plus so much more.

Here at Airborne Canton, we understand the importance of a place where teenagers can hang out. A “cool” place that’s approved by Mom and Dad. For that reason, we started our monthly Flight Club, a once-a-month opportunity for teenagers in and around Cherokee County to meet and hang out.
Why is it called Flight Club?
The first rule of Flight Club? (We’re kidding!) Truthfully? We liked the name! We tried to come up with something catchy enough for our brand, that would also appeal to teenagers.
What do Airborne’s Flight Club Teen Nights Offer?
When creating our teen nights, we had a few specific goals in mind:
A Place for Live Music: At each Flight Club event, we’ll have rotating music and themes to keep things interesting for the teens who attend. The last thing we want is an event that’s repetitive and boring.
A Place to Connect and Inspire: Our goal is to offer a place for teens to connect with each other, and in some cases, inspire each other. So much can happen in an environment that feels safe and welcoming–and we feel very strongly about that.
A Safe Space with Parents in Mind: Here in Cherokee County, there aren’t very many places for teenagers to go and hang out–face to face. We believe in human connection and wanted to provide a safe, clean place to nurture that.
First, thank you to everyone who engaged with our Airborne FIT video on Facebook! We were absolutely floored at the amount of interest we received, and we’re excited to announce that we’re offering a FREE class open to everyone who’s interested! Here are the details:
Airborne FIT Trampoline Fitness Class
The first class will take place on Thursday, February 28th from 9:30-10:30am. The class is open to the first 30 people who come through the door–first come, first serve.
For our team, Airborne FIT isn’t just a trampoline class. We’re a community of people who are willing to be fearless, impassioned and transformed! Our instructor Adrienne has been teaching fitness classes for over 20 years, and we’re excited to have her as part of this vision here at Airborne.
These classes are a high-intensity, low-impact combination of strength training and cardio. They’re a great option for anyone with a bad back or bad joints, designed to build muscle in addition to a maximum calorie burn of between 600-1,000 calories. Phew!
Future Classes: FAQs
Will you offer additional times/days? Yes. For now, we’re limited to mornings, but we will be offering evening and weekend classes for those of you who are unavailable at those times.
Pricing: Our class on 2/28 is FREE. Future pricing for upcoming classes is still TBD.
Dress code/clothing: Dress how you would for another fitness class – soft, comfortable, breathable fabric is great.
What to bring: A small towel and water bottle.
We’re looking forward to creating more connections here in Canton as we continue to offer innovative ways to stay active. For more information on our upcoming fitness classes, or any of the other offerings here at Airborne Canton, follow our updates on Instagram and Facebook!
