ClassPass in Kansas City

Since having Jona, working out has not been a part of my regular routine. A few years ago, I did Jazzercise regularly and I loved it; however, between working full time, blogging, and being a wife and mom, working out is usually the thing that falls to the bottom of the priority list. I know that taking care of my health is important, and lately I've wanted to find more time for exercise.

When ClassPass contacted me to see if I'd be interested in trying their service for a month, I didn't even hesitate to say yes. For a flat fee (around $80 depending on your area), ClassPass lets you try out different workout studios in your area. You can go to an unlimited number of classes, however, you can only visit the same studio (or company, Jazzercise, for example) 3 times per month.

ClassPass Kansas City review

ClassPass review and trying different workout studios

What I liked most: 

  • Accountablity. For me, it's all too easy to change my mind and not go to a workout. With ClassPass, you have to sign up in advance and pay a late fee if you cancel at the last minute. I liked being able to reserve a class ahead of time so that I'd be sure to put in in my calendar and actually go. 
  • Variety. This was probably my favorite feature of ClassPass, the idea that you can try so many different types of workouts. I tried a yoga class, some barre classes, and even went back to my old Jazzercise studio. If you're not sure what kind of workout you like (or you just like doing a variety of workouts), ClassPass is perfect for you. 
  • User-Friendly. The website is so easy to use, it tracks the classes you've taken and shows a calendar of classes available to reserve. Once you reserve a class it emails you your reservation and then sends you a reminder the day before the class. On the reservation, it also clearly shows the address of the studio, what you need to bring (if anything), and how early to arrive. 
I had a great experience with ClassPass, and I think it's an awesome concept. I absolutely loved having the opportunity to try it, and therefore try some classes I may never have had the chance to. Thanks ClassPass!

  1. This is awesome! ClassPass came to Minneapolis back before Christmas and I was going to sign up to try it too and then got sick and let it slip before I had the chance (well before I had the chance to get it for free). I have friends using it here who absolutely love it though! I pretty much rely on walks with Oliver for my exercise, but I want to do more actual working out, so I might have to reconsider ClassPass.

  2. I really did like it and recommend it! I'm sad that my month is up! I'd love to keep going with it, but I just don't have the time to devote that would justify the cost. I'm hoping that I'll eventually be able to go back eventually--it was fun going to different kinds of classes!

  3. I lovvvvvved giving ClassPass a shot! Trying out different workouts was amazing and really gave my body a boost. (Re: I've been sore for three weeks straight, but it's cool.)

  5. Good for you. It sounds like a wonderful website. It hasn't reached SLC yet, but I'm sure it will soon. I love that bag and I also really enjoyed reading your post on blogging lessons from four years ago.

  6. Thanks Megan, I did really like it. Although my month is up now so I'm back to being a blob... :/ And thanks--I actually enjoyed going back and reading that too. It's amazing how so much of that still rings true.

  8. How wonderful opportunity. Cute workingout clothes.
    I'm very bad at working out. Years back I had health problems which put away me from any kind of sports. And now getting back is very hard, but I must admit I like walking and I try as much as I can walk and count my steps.

  9. Thanks Ramona! I think walking is really good for you, and it's something I try to do more of too. (Especially since I have a job where I sit at a desk a lot.)

  14. I'm rubbish when it comes to working out. It just never seems to fit into my schedule, or I never make it fit. There is always an excuse, too hungry, too full, just washed my hair and don't want to ruin it...

  15. Yeah, that's pretty much me too. But given the chance to try it out for free, I'll get my butt out and go do it. And while I don't have the time/room in my budget to keep it up, it has made me want to move more, so hopefully I'll just walk more.

  16. This sounds awesome! Major bonus for me whenever workouts come with cute gear like this :) Did you enjoy the barre classes? I've been doing some at the same place I've tried out hot yoga and I really love them. The hour passes by shockingly fast for how brutal some of those moves are on your butt/thighs, ha. My studio has the reserve ahead thing for classes too, and I love it.

  17. It was awesome! And yes, I loved the gear too :)
    I did really like the barre classes. When I first went I thought they would be more dance-y, you know? Which is what I wanted (like ballet...). So when it wasn't like that I was kind of disappointed, but then after going a couple of times, I found that I really did like it and got an amazing workout. Boy was I sore for a few days though!

  18. That's a super awesome idea! I've always been more of a yoga/dancing/hiking kind of gal - so classes are my favorite. Luckily KC does yoga with me at home. :) We've been trying to get back into a groove. So far it's going well! Glad you tried and liked this! XO -Alexandra
