I’m really excited about this unique, new fitness service launching today in Seattle called ClassPass. ClassPass in an alternative to a gym membership allowing you to have access to some of the best fitness boutiques in the city.
I currently have a gym membership at 24HourFitness and I’ve been underwhelmed to say the least. The facilities are perfectly fine but their group classes are seriously lacking. So, I’ve been looking into some of the boutique studios like The Bar Method
, but memberships there are a lot of money especially for a studio that I can only do one type of class or exercise at.
This is what’s so awesome about ClassPass. For $99 a month your membership gets you unlimited classes to use at large number of studios in the ClassPass network. There is one caveat, you can only visit the same studio 3 times a month, but once the next month starts you can visit your favorite studios again for 3 times. This may seem like bummer at first but it’s actually pretty great because it forces you to build a fitness routine with a variety of different workouts like indoor cycling, barre, yoga and pilates, and keeps you from plateauing in your fitness routine. It also allows you to try out a variety of studios and workouts to figure out which ones work best for you.
ClassPass has already been really successful in other cities such as Boston, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
I’m going to be trying ClassPass out this month and will report back in at the end of the month to let you know how my experience went. I’m super excited to test this service and to try out some local Seattle studios.

*Disclosure: ClassPass has given me a free one-month trial of their service in exchange for two blog posts. All opinions and end-of-month review are my own. I only recommend products or services I would use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
