We’ve been looking jealously across the pond for a while now at ClassPass, an American fitness movement that lets you pay a flat fee every month for unlimited classes at a whole range of studios.
Well, thank the fitness gods, it’s just launched in London and we’re pretty happy about it. ClassPass has more than 25 locations in the US, with more than 2 million (!) fitness classes booked. That’s a whole lot of exercise, and we’re hoping to see even more cities springing up here (no word on that yet).
In the UK, ClassPass costs £89 a month, which grants you access to unlimited workout classes (yoga, pilates, spinning, strength training, barre fit, martial arts, dance and endless more options) at a staggering 150 studios scattered across the capital. They include the highly-popular Psycle, Frame and BARREtoned. Even better, if you choose to subscribe for 3 months, the price comes down to £69, or £59 for 6 months. That’s about the cost of a normal gym membership in some parts of London (depending on how fancy your postcode is), and considering it’s completely unlimited, seems like excellent value. You could go every day if you wanted to.
So what’s the catch? The only small thing is that you can’t visit the same studio more than 3 times in a month, so no hogging all the Psycle classes. As catches go, that’s fairly minor.
