This is a single, monthly ticket to hundreds of classes in the city from boxing to yoga, spinning to CrossFit, bootcamp to ballet in some of the best studios around. You get to try an ever-growing list of studios with just one fee. For £89 (or less if you sign up for longer) will get unlimited classes for a whole month. Go to more than seven classes during that month and you're winning.
In just a couple of weeks during my trial, kindly provided by ClassPass, I tried...
- A 30-minute session at Speedflex
- Acro Yoga at Triyoga
- Open Yoga at Triyoga
- Forest Yoga at Triyoga
- An express class at Project Fit
- Aerial Hoop at London Dance Academy
There were so many more classes I'd like to have tried, it's hard to know where to start with such a varied and long list. There are different ways to decide – either look for a studio by name or search for classes by area, activity type or by time. Once you've chosen a class, simply click reserve and pick out your favourite lycra.
It wasn't completely smooth sailing, though. A couple of times, studios didn't register me as having attended a class. If you fail to cancel within the 12-hour cancellation period or if you miss a class, you'll be charged for it, so my marked absences almost cost me.
Also, my one month trial ended as I was away on holiday and unable to sign up for the following month. This now means I have to pay a £69 reactivation fee if I want to use ClassPass in the future. This doesn't quite sound like the commitment-free option it's billed to be. You can put your membership on hold but it will cost you £19 for the privilege.
So cancel your gym membership, quit your single studio loyalty scheme. Being faithfully unfaithful is the future of working out.
