Review: ClassPass for Fitness Classes

Disclosure:  I received a month of unlimited access to ClassPass (and a tank top!) at no charge,  in exchange for my honest review.  You can skip the Nashville waitlist using my referral link and join ClassPass right away!  I do not get a kickback for referrals, this is just a benefit for my readers.

ClassPass is a brilliant concept.  I have a tendency to get tired of a workout "routine" and look for Groupons or newbie deals at different fitness studios.  I never stick with them for long.  That's why ClassPass is so great; you get unlimited fitness classes (up to 3 per participating studio) for a single monthly fee.  You make reservations for classes via web or mobile app; you receive a reminder e-mail about classes, as well as tips on what to bring and how early to show up.  If it's your first time at a studio, you'll want to go early to fill out waivers and whatnot.


The App
There is a $20 charge if you miss a class or show up late, which is how the studios participating likely mitigate risk from allowing you to join their classes.  I think this is reasonable (you can cancel 12+ hours in advance) and many studios already have this as a policy.  I also think it holds people like me accountable!

My favorite part about ClassPass, other than trying classes, is definitely the app!  You can browse and reserve classes either via web browser or the app.  Both methods are super simple and easy. You can browse classes on a map or by name.  The app allows you to add reserved classes to your iCal calendar.  I love being organized, and this helps a lot.


I've been attending a few different classes at various studios in my area already:  Jazzercise, Niki G's Fitness Bootcamp, and 100% Fit are some of my favorites.  (The links take you to Yelp, where I've reviewed them!)  All of them have helped me break a sweat for sure.  I know that to see optimal results, it's good to stick to a certain type of class multiple times per week, over time.  But for me, without variety and mixing it up, I'm more likely to quit.  ClassPass has allowed me to experiment with new techniques, as well as get to know studios in my area I had no idea existed.

I think ClassPass is ideal for:
  • People like me who really enjoy variety in workouts, or trying something new.
  • Someone new to a ClassPass city looking to try out different studios and meet new people.
  • Business travelers who can use the membership in multiple cities.

Have you tried ClassPass before?
