ClassPass Review – Well and Good NYC

ClassPass

Launched in June 2013, ClassPass has become the major player on the scene over the past few months, with tons of 20-something New Yorkers signing up to take advantage of the chance to access so many high-caliber studios at an affordable price. “We started ClassPass to make fitness accessible and motivating for everyone,” says founder Payal Kadakia. Until recently, membership got you 10 classes per month, but it’s since switched to unlimited bookings.

How much it costs: $99 per month
Number of classes included: Unlimited
Restrictions: No more than three classes per month can be used at the same studio (AKA it’s not the best idea if you only love one or two workouts)
Number of participating studios: More than 250
Participating studios: AKT in Motion, Barry’s Bootcamp, Exhale, Flex Studios, Flywheel, The Monster Cycle, Tone House, Torque Cycling & Fitness, and Yoga Shanti, to name a few
Pros: There are so many studios to choose from. ClassPass is also in Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and just debuted in Chicago, which makes it the most far-reaching booking tool out there.
Cons: Classes book up quickly. Chaise Fitness and Barry’s Bootcamp, for example, either book up right away or have just a few spots available to ClassPass members. Users also complain that they’ve gotten kicked out of classes even when they’ve received a confirmation email due to over-booking. You’re also prone to get not-so-popular bikes in spin classes.
