Screw ClassPass: Try These 7 Fitness Memberships Instead
Guys, there is life after the ClassPass price increase.
Right now it might feel like you’re being forced to choose between keeping your super-fit body and being able to afford rent every month after they hiked their monthly price up to $190.
But never fear, because the fitness service isn’t the only one on the block. In fact, there are plenty of other monthly memberships out there that work just as well and won’t clear out your bank account.
Read on for seven alternative fitness memberships that will have you saying, “ClassPass who?”
Membership Cost: $165–$195/month for one location
Why It’s Good: The luxury gym offers many similar classes to those from the boutique studios on ClassPass, including barre, cycling, and dance. The locker rooms are also stocked with sweet products from Kiehl's.
Membership Cost: $12.95/month for unlimited streaming
Why It’s Good: From the comfort of your own home, you can access workouts of every kind, from high-intensity interval training to yoga. There’s even live workouts in the morning! Plus, the trainers are top-notch, including Biggest Loser’s Bob Harper.
Membership Cost: $79/5 classes, $149/10 classes, $249/20 classes
Why It’s Good: While this ClassPass competitor may seem the same or a bit more expensive at first glance, if you’re going to shell out the dough, it’s a better investment. Gyms who sign up with FitReserve have to offer their full class schedule, instead of reserving some only for members. Plus, you get four visits per month per studio, instead of three.
Membership Cost: $57/month for unlimited streaming
Why It’s Good: Let’s be real, many of you only joined ClassPass for the barre studios. Why not choose one of the best and do it from the comfort of your own home? This service gives you the option between workouts, running 10, 15, 30, and 57 minutes, and you can switch between barre and cardio.
Sweat With Kayla
Membership Cost: $4.61/week or $54.99/3 months for unlimited access to the app
Why It’s Good: Internet fitness phenom Kayla Itsines brings her famous Bikini Body Guide to your home, gym, or park. You’ll just need your phone to get through these (seriously challenging) 28-minute resistance sessions. Plus, the app includes five new recipes per day and helpful meal plans!
Membership Cost: $9.99/month or $99/year for unlimited streaming
Why It’s Good: This service combines the ClassPass model with online streaming services, to give you unlimited remote access to a variety of boutique studios, like ChaiseFitness, David Barton Gym, Flex Studios, and ReXist360.
Membership Cost: Memberships vary by location, but are around $189/month for unlimited, $149/8 sessions per month, $79/4 sessions per month
Why It’s Good: There’s no contract, so you can go month-to-month on this mixed strength and cardio fitness class. Family members can also join at a reduced rate, and you can use your membership at any of the locations around the country. Just note: Premium pricing applies in places like NYC, Chicago, San Francisco, and Honolulu.
