ClassPass launches in DC (Here’s what you need to know)

Product Reviews, Running News

ClassPass is in D.C.! For those who haven’t heard of it, here is the gist: Sign up for ClassPass in your city (in my case, D.C.) and take classes at each of more than 60 fitness/gym facilities. There is a max of three classes per facility, but as long as you don’t mind hopping around from studio to studio, it’s a great deal at just $99.

Unfortunately, while 60 studios sounds like a lot, they are spread throughout the DC, Maryland, Virginia. Realistically, only about 7 of the studios are accessible to me (and I live smack in the middle of D.C.) Regardless, the cost is worth it considering how expensive it is to register for individual fitness classes. (Is the age of $20 yoga classes over yet? Please.) Here is a look at the studios participating:

Right now the service is available in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington, D.C.

I was invited to a launch party last week at Sculpt DC with a number of other fitness bloggers. One thing’s for sure: They know their audience. Attendees got to take a fitness class followed by champagne, Sweetgreen and manicures. My friend Sandra and I opted for cycling – one of the three class options. Believe it or not, I’ve never taken a cycling class. I wanted to try something new and Sandra was in the same boat. Into the cycling room we went. The energy of the class was high and looked like a lot of fun. I immediately asked asked for help adjusting my bike and the instructor (who was wonderful) came right to the rescue. It was a very challenging class, I think the intensity of the cycling class might not be my thing – but it was a great experience.

If these studios pan out – I think ClassPass will be a great investment. There is a large number of studios in the city not included on the list – like my favorite yoga studio Down Dog. If I can’t find a class that I like as much, it might be hard to pay for ClassPass as well as a membership to other studios not on the list.
