Review of ClassPass

ClassPass is the newest fitness trend to hit London. For £89 a month you get access to unlimited classes across the city’s hottest studios. Shaleena and I signed up for a one week trial last week so wanted to share our thoughts on the concept.

Pros:

  • An amazing number of studios have signed up to the scheme, including some of the priciest ones in town. Most reformer pilates classes cost £28 each which makes the monthly £89 seem well worth it
  • It’s a great way to get out of your comfort zone and try different types of workouts

Cons:

  • Although membership gives you unlimited classes, you can only visit the same studio (across all its locations) three times in one month
  • There are a lot of studios on the website, but there isn’t a huge variety in the classes offered. We found that most of them were yoga or pilates.
  • As bloggers, we’re happy to hop on the tube to try the latest workout but if you’re a commuter, you would probably just want to stick with the locations most convenient for you
  • High cancellation fees. When there’s so much to choose from, sometimes you get a bit trigger happy with the sign up button but later realise that you bit off a bit more than you could chew. There’s a £12 fee if you cancel less than 12 hours before a class and a £15 charge if you’re a no show. We understand the no show fee but most studios give you much less time than 12 hours in which to cancel your class.
  • If you cancel your ClassPass subscription and later change your mind there’s a £69 reactivation fee!

We've heard a few local companies are working on a similar business model so we'll be sure to update you as soon as we know more!

Keep saving,

Shaleena and Roshni
