If you’re not sure, keep reading.

This article will walk you through everything you need to know to decide whether you should give ClassPass a try, including how ClassPass works, what types of classes are available, how to book a class, what ClassPass costs, how to save money on your ClassPass membership (through free trials and the referral program), and how to cancel ClassPass if you decide it’s not for you.

And, of course, how to tell if ClassPass is available where you live and work.

By the time you’re done, you’ll know whether you should give ClassPass a try.

How Does ClassPass Work?

ClassPass allows its members to access a range of different boutique fitness classes with only one membership fee, instead of having to pay for multiple fitness studio and gym memberships.

This flexibility is why ClassPass is so popular — it allows members to book a large number of classes at different studios while keeping the overall fees down.

ClassPass is a monthly subscription service, so while you can cancel any time, you are required to pay for your ClassPass membership at the beginning of the month and then use your ClassPass credits to reserve your workout classes.

The ClassPass business model allows for dynamic pricing across class types and markets, which means the number of credits you’ll need for a specific gym or class will depend on the time of the class, the popularity of the class, and how far in advance you book the class.

For example, if a spin class at a specific gym is very popular in your city, you’ll have to spend more credits to book it, especially if you choose to book it last minute and it’s at a busy time.

What Types of Classes Are Available?

ClassPass Reviews: Pros and Cons of ClassPass ClassPass offers a wide variety of classes to its members.

Some of the most popular class types among ClassPass users are: yoga classes (especially hot yoga), pilates classes, spin classes, Pure Barre classes, and strength training classes.

The best way to check what types of fitness classes you can take through ClassPass is to check their website.

If the ClassPass website doesn’t automatically sense your location, enter your city or ZIP code to see the fitness studios near you offering classes through ClassPass.

Booking a Class

Booking classes is easy.

Simply search for classes as recommended above.

You’ll be able to filter by date, time, and class type so you can find workout classes at different gyms and fitness studios near you that suit your workout preferences and schedule.

Once you find a class you like, just sign in (or sign up) and reserve it.

What Does ClassPass Cost?

Your ClassPass membership fees are determined by your location and the number of fitness classes you’d like to take on a monthly basis.

  • $79 per month for 45 credits to book 4–6 classes
  • $159 per month for 100 credits to book 10–15 classes

The average class in NYC costs eight credits to book.
