My First Month With ClassPass

Let me start this post with this is not in any way a sponsored post. This is my truthful experience with ClassPass. As you all know from following my journey I started taking barre class in November to help with some missing pieces in my running. I held my barre membership until the end of February, but I knew with some travel plans coming up and getting back in to training I was not going to be able to make enough classes to make the membership worth it.



My friend Gretchen told me about ClassPass. She has been using it for a little while now and raved about it. I thought this might be the solution I was looking for. Plus, the barre studio I like uses ClassPass so it was a win-win.

I used a referral code (mine is in all of the links) for my first month of ClassPass and it gave me 20 credits for free. Most classes are four credits so that was five classes in a month. Ummm, yeah. What did I have to lose!

After you sign up I highly recommend downloading the ClassPass app. The app will let you set what time you are looking for your class to start and the distance from where you are. I usually set mine for after work. You can book classes up to a week in advance, so if you know you are going to have a crazy day at work, don't try to book a class!

I love the different classes you can take on ClassPass. I went to barre, yoga, spinning and an interval class twice. It was great. I loved being able to just pop in a yoga class when I needed some extra stretching. I also really liked trying different things I don't think I normally would have. I went to CycleBar and boy, that was an experience for sure. I can run half marathons and fell better than I did after that!

The really great thing is none of the studios pressured you to join. I would check in and say, "Hey, I'm Steff I'm here for a class on my ClassPass" and that was it. Each studio was very welcoming and explained very well how to have the best class. I cannot stress how awesome this was.

I have heard in some places that it can be hard to book classes on ClassPass but I have not run in to that problem yet. I am really good with booking classes ahead of time, but I did book one a day in advance and had zero issues.

When I got to class yesterday I was checking my app and got a notification that my 20 credit plan was now a 30 credit plan! That's 10 more credits and two more classes a month. From what I saw they also updated it to be able to go to the same place as many times as you want a month. Guys, this plan is only $30 a month! I'm not kidding. Think about how much you are spending on one workout class a month when you can explore so many different places at a fraction of the cost!

So, if you are interested you can use my referral link and get your first month free for 30 credits. Like seriously, that's it. You never know what classes you might find that you really enjoy! I have really taken a liking to the interval class I've been taking. I know you will love it too!

Have you tried ClassPass? What has been your experience?

  1. I LOVE class pass! I use it in St. Louis but have used it in the DC area too. It has changed quite a bit from when I first started using it a few years ago, and now it is a credit system. I think this new format makes sense because if you are going to gym just to use equipment on your own with no staff involvement, that should take less points than when an instructor leads you through a class. It is a great app to use when traveling and a great way to try all kinds of classes in your own city. Use the referral links above and try it yourself!!!

  2. I have always wondered about trying class pass! I should look into it more. It is just so hard to get all the workouts done you need to in a week, that pesky job just gets in the way LOL
