Today's Editor's Pick comes from Racked NY Editor Tiffany Yannetta
For someone like me who has a love-hate relationships with gyms, ClassPass is absolutely genius. For $99 a month, you can take classes at ten different (and legit) fitness studios all over the city. I signed up right before Racked Fitness Week to try out some new workouts, and I'm totally hooked.
What I like the most about it is that I can take a yoga class in Union Square on Monday, a circuit training class on the Upper West Side on Tuesday, and a barre class in Williamsburg on Wednesday. Their selection includes all the boutique fitness studios I really want to try, without the $30-a-pop price tag. You can search for classes by day and by timeframe, which is great for anyone with an annoying schedule like myself.
One more bonus (and then I swear I'll stop): I've found that it's sort of like a micro community of fitness explorers. I've meet new people at every class, and we trade information on what we've tried. (This is how I learned which bootcamp instructor to avoid.) So far, it's available in New York City, Boston, Chicago, DC, LA, Miami, San Francisco, and Seattle. But if you ask nicely, maybe they'll come to your town. For example, I'm petitioning for them to expand to New Jersey.
