The first post I wrote on my blog was a review of the Classtivity Passport –$50 for 10 boutique fitness classes in New York City (with the challenge of finishing them in less than 30 days). When I finished my 10 classes by the beginning of August, I was upset. During my Passport month, I found myself looking forward to working out. I could see myself getting physically and mentally stronger. But it was unlikely that I could keep taking so many quality classes at full price. $300+ on fitness each month is a lot, even in NYC.
Then, something amazing happened. Less than a week after I finished my Passport, Classtivity launched its ClassPass–a $100 monthly fee to take 10 boutique fitness classes, both in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Many of the studios that were on the Passport appeared as options, but there are even more to choose from. $100 is a fantastic deal for 10 classes, and a deal that I can afford. It’s about the same as paying for a traditional gym membership in NYC. Originally, the offering was reserved for those who completed the Passport. However, inside sources tell me that the ClassPass will be available to everyone very soon.
