As University students are always on the go, it is often hard to find time to work out at a reasonable price. With the sky-high prices of memberships to a variety of gyms and studios in New York City, University students may be searching for a cheaper alternative. ClassPass may be the answer.

ClassPass is a monthly fitness membership that allows members access to different gyms and studios across their chosen city. With a variety of different level plans, ClassPass provides its customers with credits to book classes of their liking.

The current pricing packages are:

  • $9 per month (Includes four credits to book up to one class)
  • $29 per month (Includes 15 credits to book up to 5 classes)
  • $49 per month (Includes 27 credits to book up to 10 classes)
  • $79 per month  (Includes 45 credits to book up to 16 classes)

While the variety of price packages range, ClassPass caters to their member’s physical and financial situation. For example, University students who are always on the run and only have time to take one or two classes a week, $29 a month may work well with a budget.

With options ranging from dance, yoga, and martial arts, ClassPass allows you to attend all kinds of fitness sessions.

 ClassPass also allows access to big-name gyms such as Flywheel, Dancebody, and Y7.

“What I like about ClassPass is the variety of options that you can choose from,” says University junior Lauren Moser. “If one day you are in the mood to do yoga, there are plenty of options there. The next day, if you want to switch it up, you also have that option as well.”

More University students have been sharing their opinions on ClassPass.

“I have never personally used ClassPass because I only like certain workouts, but I think it is a great idea for people who want to mix it up and try new classes at a cheaper price,” shared University junior Emma Note. “From what I have heard, a lot of the classes are offered day-of and I personally like to plan ahead.”

Other students, on the other hand, are ClassPass lovers.

“Classpass is a great way to work out with friends on a college budget,” shared University junior Maddie Stanton. “They offer so many different types of classes you would never think of trying before. My favorite was the trampoline class! Honestly, overall I love ClassPass and would recommend it to anyone. ”

Some University students are not familiar with ClassPass and what it has to offer. University sophomore Emily Dodaro said, “I have personally never heard of it, but I would love to learn more about it.” Dodaro continued, “It seems like you get it all together in one package.”

In addition to in-person classes, ClassPass also offers online virtual workout tutorials. The site offers introductory video series in their blog section that can be accessed anywhere and can help University students prepare for their first workout session.

With all these perks and benefits, it is easy to see why University students are loving what ClassPass has to offer. For students who may have not heard of it before or are looking to give it a try, more information is available on the ClassPass company’s website,
