Class Pass Review
I've always wanted to try ClassPass and once I saw that they were having a promotion for their anniversary in June I thought, "this is the perfect time!". My main reasons for wanting to try ClassPass were to try out different fitness studios without the commitment and to find a workout I love, my 3 month trial of 5 classes per month for $30 a month allowed just that (this is the ClassPass Base plan that is originally $60/month where you can visit any studio up to 2 times in that cycle).
I found the ClassPass app to be easy to use and they recently made some updates that includes a feature where it has the classes you recently took to make booking that class again even more simple. I remember the first class I took was at Cycle House in West Hollywood (I'm usually a SoulCycle rider so I wanted to try something different). I remember my first class through ClassPass so well, I had an obnoxious Uber driver who assisted in my late arrival to class and I could not find the Cycle House on Melrose Place for the life of me. I was 5 minutes past the grace period for Cycle House and ClassPass charges you a fee of $15 if you cancel a class within 12 hours of the class time and a $20 fee when you miss a class (however, the class will not count as one of your studio or class visits). Lucky enough for me there was an amazing front desk attendant at Cycle House that day and let me use his guest pass for the next class, I was SUPER grateful!
As I mentioned above, one of the reasons I joined ClassPass was to figure out a workout I love and I did! Before ClassPass I never tried Pilates and part of that reason is because I was somewhat intimidated by the reformer machine and at the time had no clue that Pilates can also be done without the reformer (Mat Pilates). During my three month trial with ClassPass I tried three different pilates studios: Eden by Eden Sassoon Pilates (3 different type of classes), Circuit Pilates (1 class), and Hot Pilates (I took a total of 3 classes there and then joined the studios 1 month unlimited class package). I love that I ended up loving pilates, was no longer intimidated by the workout after my 1st class at Eden by Eden Sassoon Pilates, and ended up finding a studio that I LOVE, Hot Pilates!
Honestly, I feel that the ClassPass trial promotion served its' purpose for what I was looking for and last week I canceled my membership with the company since I would have to pay the full price of $60 next month. If I had the coins to splurge I would get the unlimited package or the 10 class a month package, but the ClassPass packages are pretty expensive for my pockets and not in my budget to commit to. Have you tried ClassPass, if so what are your thoughts?
