If you’ve been on my Instagram lately, you know I’ve been obsessed with ClassPass…All I do is post stories about the new studios I try. Gotta let the people know!
First off, what is ClassPass?
“ClassPass is a membership program for fitness classes across multiple gyms and studios.” -Straight from CP.
Basically it gives you access to fitness studios in your area without having to buy multiple memberships to those studios. One pass, endless options.
Previously, I had a membership to Cyclebar spin studio & a gym membership at Crunch. I found myself not utilizing the amount of classes I was purchasing at Cyclebar. So, instead of spending so much money for one fitness studio that I wasn’t going to enough, I decided to try ClassPass. I wanted to try a bunch of the studios I had been seeing online and diversify my routine.
So far I have tried 6 different studios. Below is a little taste of each and my review:
I have been in love with Cyclebar since last June, right after I moved back to GA after college. I was instantly obsessed after my first class because of the vibe! The instructors are so fun, the music is great and the staff is so accommodating. I love taking my friends and (dragging) Patrick sometimes. Just your classic spin class, with an added arm song and awesome music. They have a ton of locations around the country so check them out for sure.
If you’ve never tried cycling, I’d highly suggest it. It is my go-to workout when I need to get my sweat on.
I’d obviously heard about PB many many times but never actually took a class. Honestly, I thought it would be easy and not really challenge me. Yikes, I was wrong! Lifting 2 lb weights is easy until you do the same plus for 25 reps…I feel the burn. The classes are usually filled with young moms so I don’t find the studio intimidating, I kinda like that aspect!
If you want a really sweaty sesh, try something else. You’ll get a great toning workout in but not be dripping after.
OK… This has been my one bad experience through ClassPass. This was a suggested studio on CP because I entered that I enjoy barre & TRX. I signed up for the TRX class and unfortunately the whole experience was just off for me. I didn’t find the class challenging and the format was just strange so it felt weird the whole time and couldn’t get a good workout in… On to the next!
OMG I’m obsessed! Forme is a barre-like studio with cardio dance elements incorporated. I enjoy FORME over a Pure Barre style class, although they are very similar, because FORME has amazing music and fun cardio bursts that really get me sweaty.
Every instructor I have tried is SO fun and I end up chatting with them after class, which I love. The instructors really make the experience at fitness studios and that is definitely the case here!
Admittedly, I found out about the Stellar brand from their Instagram…talk about Insta goals. Then, I knew I had to try it out when I found out my fav instructor at Cyclebar, Katie, taught there too!
Stellar is a pilates & strength class that uses the Megaformer. So, you have to engage your abs at all times even if you are doing legs or you’ll literally fall off. I’m always super focused because I don’t want to embarrass myself and fly off in front of everyone, HA!
This class is by no means easy but the instructors are great about giving modifications- which, at this time, I always take. This class is different from anything I have EVER done and that’s why I enjoy it so much. It not only challenges my body (talk about the shakes) but my mind as well because all the moves are new.
Fit9 is the sister studio to Stellar, so I had to give it a whirl. I went for the first time a while ago with The Fit Atlanta. The class is broken up into 4 parts: Skillmill HIIT circuits, weight training, Skillmill skills (lateral jumps, sled push) and boxing! The Skillmill is a curved treadmill and the speed is all dependent on you. If you run faster the machine moves to your speed. It is definitely tricky at first because you feel like you’re a little out of control, but I got the hang of it after my first class.
Fit9 is one of my favs because it’s broken up which makes the time go by fast and its easier to push myself for 15 minutes in each section then for 60 minutes straight. I get a burst of motivation when we change activities!
