With the new year comes the inevitable resolution to exercise more. But choosing where to workout (and what regimen you'll actually adhere to) can be just as daunting as taking that first class. Enter ClassPass, a new fitness membership that gives you access to tons of local exercise options.
Every month, ClassPass members can take can take up to three classes at each participating studio for a flat fee of $99. With the membership, you can hop from Pilates to yoga to cycling without buying expensive one-class passes or committing to a certain studio.
And with more than 40 studios participating so far, the ClassPass options are plentiful. "In Austin, there’s a studio for any workout you fancy: CorePower Yoga to practice your Vinyasa flow, RIDE Indoor Cycling for some great jams and killer legs, Pure Pilates Austin to strengthen that core and MOD Fitness to dance a class away," says the ClassPass blog.
Members reserve classes online via the ClassPass website. New classes are added everyday and most classes are available to reserve one week in advance. As with most fitness studios, classes must be canceled 24 hours in advance to avoid additional fees.
Austin exercise aficionados can sign up for ClassPass online and start class hopping as soon as registration is complete. While you can only visit the same studio three times each month, unlimited access to classes in the network makes up for this small stipulation. Consider it a chance to branch out from your old standby and find a new favorite routine in 2015.
