A Quick Guide to ClassPass for a Fun, Workout-Hopping Experience

Class Pass Guide

Do you struggle with a lack of flexibility in your workouts? Whether you're a beginner at fitness or a long-time gymgoer, it's only common to want to experiment and try different classes every now and then — something most gym memberships can't really provide.

If you want to jazz up your workouts, ClassPass is here to give you the range to explore various workouts and studios through its unique credit system. Currently, ClassPass is present in various cities and countries in Asia, North America, South America, and Oceania, making it easier for you to work out when travelling. In Asia, you can use the ClassPass app in Singapore; Bangkok, Thailand; Manila, Philippines; Hong Kong; Kuala Lumpur and Penang, Malaysia; Mumbai, India; Jakarta, Indonesia; and Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

But first, what is ClassPass?

ClassPass, co-founded by Payal Kadakia and Mary Biggins, is a monthly membership that gives users access to thousands of fitness studios, gyms, salons, and spas the world over on the belief that fitness and wellness aren't one-size-fits-all. Whether it's a Pilates class today or hot yoga or cycling on the weekend, ClassPass offers an exciting workout-hopping experience for members to find joy in new things and personally curate the fitness plan that works best for them.

ClassPass Credit System

Your ClassPass credits can be used to book classes or appointments in any of its partner studios, salons, or spas, and the credit costs of which vary depending on popularity, time, and reservation type.

ClassPass offers various types of monthly credit plans, namely 10 credits (HK$158 a month), 20 credits (HK$288), 50 credits (HK$688), 100 credits (HK$1,288), or 150 credits (HK$1,788), so you can budget your credits for your favourite classes or according to your schedule and lifestyle.

Should you run out of credits before the month is up, you can always add more through the app so you can stay on track with your workouts. If you don't get to use up all your credits, you can roll these over up to as much as the number of credits in your next month's plan. Normally, gym and yoga classes cost fewer credits, while classes and appointments like bootcamp, nails, Pilates, and massage cost more.

Free 14-Day Trial

Your first time? Fret not. ClassPass offers a free 14-day trial for all new signups. The trial gives you 35 credits, so you can check out various studios and gyms one time each. All unused credits will expire at the end of the trial, so make sure to maximise them. Once the trial is done, you will be auto-enrolled in ClassPass' 50-credit plan (HK$688), with a reminder two days before your trial ends. You can also change or cancel at any time during your free trial.

Repeat bookings to gyms and access to salons and spas will be allowed once you are enrolled in a monthly plan.

Exploring ClassPass

In ClassPass' 2023 Look Back Report, golf emerged as the fastest-growing fitness class based on tens of thousands of reservations made between January and November 2023. The report also showed that October was the most popular month to workout, while Wednesday was the most popular day for a workout. Strength training, on the other hand, was the most popular class to bring a friend to, and Pilates took the spot for the most popular first class that users booked.

Wellness experience platform Mindbody Inc., the parent company of ClassPass, also reported that while weight training and cardio are still popular, more people are veering from high-intensity workouts to low-impact exercises like hot yoga, traditional yoga, and martial arts. These classes are some you should look out for to be among this year’s workout trends.
