My Personal Fitness Assistant – ClassPass in Seattle

So here’s the thing. I’m almost 35. (If only you knew how hard it is for me to say those words.) I’m almost 35, I’ve birthed two children. My body is not exactly what it was when I met my husband. (I recently gave away the size 4 dress I was wearing the day I met A. To say times have changed would be an understatement.) I wish I were a little more in shape as the big day approaches, but life just keeps getting in the way.

I’ve found that a typical gym membership doesn’t really work for me. Unlike A who will happily go to the gym and just run 5 miles as fast as he can on the treadmill, I am not a self starter. I’m likely to go in, find a recumbent bike and pedal leisurely while reading this month’s Real Simple. As lovely as that sounds, it isn’t exactly a good use of my time or money (nor will it help me get back in shape). I’ve found that fitness classes are really the best way for me to get my fitness on.

And yet, here’s the thing with fitness classes. You can’t just decide – I would like to go to one and show up. You need to find a place, find a class you want, find a time that works and then enroll. And enrolling means registering an email, coming up with a password and then REMEMBERING that password. Point is, life is hard when you’re Lauren.

Then I heard about Class Pass.

ClassPass is an alternative to a gym membership. With ClassPass, you get access to the best boutique fitness classes in your city. There are over 1,000 classes available to ClassPass members, including cycling, pilates, yoga, strength training, dance, martial arts, and more.

For $99 a month, ClassPass members get unlimited classes to use at studios in the ClassPass network. While a member can take as many classes per month as they’d like, they can only visit the same studio 3 times per month. 

One sign-in, one password and ta da, I can find fitness classes around Seattle. I can sort by neighborhood, class type or time. This is great because sometimes I’m looking for a class by work that I can fit in over my lunch hour. Other times I’m looking for a class in the evening that is close enough to let me do bedtime and then run to barre class. The variety in classes is great too – zumba, cycling, barre and TRX. This lets me work on getting stronger, as well as finding cardio workouts.

I’m looking forward to trying new studios as well. Since I don’t have to pay a membership fee (or class fee) at individual studios, I can easily try new places or class types without worrying that I’ll be committing to something I may not like.

Class Pass is like a personal assistant for my fitness life. It may not help me get dinner on the table each night, but it helps me to find the perfect class that I can run to right after dinner. And let’s be honest – I need all the help I can get.

I was not compensated for this post. ClassPass provided me with a free month of access to ClassPass but all opinions are my own. (I really do need all the help I can get!)
