ClassPass Seattle Fitness Review

December 10, 2014

DSC_8882-6

Hey beautiful people 🙂
My free month of access to ClassPass is over. OMG, I can tell you, it was amazing. To be honest, it was one on my best fitness experiences ever. I’m not exaggerating, fitness was always important to me, but now I tried different options that I never knew about.

So what is ClassPass? It is an alternative to a gym membership!

  • Allows you UNLIMITED classes at participating studios. You get access to the best boutique fitness classes in your city.
  • You are limited to 3 classes per studio per month. However, once the next month starts, you can visit that favorite studio again for 3 times!
  • Offers a lot of diversity: barre class, yoga (hot yoga, fly yoga), pilates, indoor cycling, bootcamps, strength training, salsa, pole fitness, capoeira and many more!
  • That means: For $99 a month you get unlimited classes for access to a variety of studios across Seattle. E.g., one day you could go to a barre class and the next could be yoga or salsa but all for the same monthly price.

Let me get back to my experience: I was in 7 different studios and overall 9 fitness classes. What’s different to usual gyms: You have to reserve your class online and if you’re not going to be able to make a class than you can cancel it 24 Hours in advance. This gives you the advantage that classes are not too crowded and that the instructor can concentrate better on each of the attendants.

1. Flybarre – Seattle: $25 per class (without membership) / $180 monthly (with membership)  

Classpass Flybarre - Seattle

They offer cycling and barre classes. I tried their barre class and OMG, it’s an intense workout, really challenging! The instructor looks amazing, she’s very fit and inspiring! She also did a great job with helping every time I wasn’t sure if I did the exercise correctly.I was in three different barre studios and at 5 different instructors and I guess Flybarre was the most challenging one, my whole body was shaking :)) It was hard, but you feel so good after working out there. It was a great experience and guess what, now I don’t want to miss barre class again 😉 Anyway the studio is quite big, you have showers, lockers, it’s clean, it’s a modern studio. Other than that, they provide shoes, towels and water.

2. Corepower Yoga – Bellevue: $20 per class (without membership) / $190 monthly (with membership)

ClassPass Corepower Yoga - Bellevue

During my university time in Germany I attended to a yoga class and to be honest I didn’t like it much. It wasn’t the type of fitness I adore. Anyway I thought yoga deserves a second try. The instructor was walking around the room telling us each pose to do. For me that was a little bit difficult because I don’t know any of the yoga poses, so that I almost every time had to look over to my neighbour to see how she was doing it. Anyway I’m still not a yoga girl. Sorry! Most of the exercises are also too hard for me, I guess I don’t have enough power.

3. Fly Fitness- Kirkland: $22per class (without membership) / $175 monthly (with membership)

ClassPass Fly Fitness- Kirkland

What a beautiful location!!! I love Fly Fitness <3 it’s a small & cute studio, they offer different kind of fitness, barre classes, boot camps and if the weather allows you will workout on shore of Lake Washington. This is fantastic!!! The Barre class itself was also pretty hard, the whole body was shaking, but I loved it! This studio is part of my top 3 favorites 🙂

4. Soma Pilates- Redmond: $22 per class (without membership) / monthly different offers

ClassPass Soma Pilates- Redmond

It was my first time ever in a pilates studio. What can I say about pilates, I’m really lucky that I had an incredibly patient and talented instructor! I wouldn’t describe myself to be very flexible and my balance isn’t good either but after the session my body felt absolutely great. What I attended was a group session, we were only two persons and that was perfect for me, because the instructor could help me a lot – which I’m really thankful about. I guess after a few weeks of working on my flexibility, strengths and balance, I’ll do a better job in pilates class 😉

5. Shine Fitness- Kirkland: from $199 monthly (with membership)

This studio is also in my top 3 favorites! Kim is a great instructor who helps you to archive your goals, she is motivated and such an inspiration, so that overall she is one of my favorite instructors I met 🙂  I attended the ‘metabolic class’ – which is an interval cardio training, very effective for fat loss. I loved all the exercises, challenging but really effective 😉

6. Barre3-Kirkland: $20 per class (without membership) / $175 monthly  (with membership)

ClassPass Barre3-Kirkland

This is my most favorite studio, it’s a beautiful location, the instructors are very talented, and they keep you motivated. I attended three classes with different instructors and their classes are really challenging <3 Barre3 classes offer a completely different routine than I am used to, it challenges a different set of muscle groups. Barre3 is pretty close to my home and I have the feeling the exercises are very friendly for my back.

7. Bassline Fitness- Kirkland: $19 per class (without membership) / $109 monthly  (with membership)

ClassPass Bassline Fitness- Kirkland

I have a membership at Golds Gym and I’m used to ride the spin bike but this class has totally kicked my ass 😉 The Mashup class was fun, intense and the instructor was enthusiastic and motivating at the same time. They play loud music, each person has her/his own spinning bike but may move from one piece of equipment to the next after each song. There were a lot of spinning bikes, treadmills, krankcycle, rowers and a few stations with some weight, gymnastic ball and more.

Conclusion

Overall, it was a really great experience which made me actually consider a ClassPass membership. I have already a gym membership, they offer classes too and I really feel good working out there, especially love the spa area with the big swimming pool.

I noticed that my body changed with all the workouts from ClassPass quite fast, I was a bit surprised that one month was so effective. I found that diversity of classes in general and working with a trainer fits very well to me, that’s why I decided to become a ClassPass member

If you are interested in becoming a member, here you can sign up for ClassPass and can skip the waitlist.
You get unlimited classes for $99/months which seems to be a reasonable price compared to a single monthly membership of any of the participating studios. Not only you can try different kinds of training around your city, you can even use that ClassPass membership across the country!

If you have any questions or if you want to try a class with me at one of the studios, let me know in the comments below 🙂

Hope to see you around

xoxo :*

Disclaimer: ClassPass did give me the complimentary month membership so I can review.
But all honest opinions and thoughts expressed were my own.

    So glad you became a ClassPass member! I actually also belong to golds and haven't been in 3 months now. I find it so much more motivating to have to sign up for classes or a $20 pelalty and the diversity of classes really helps! Enjoy!!

    I love ClassPass San Francisco! There are classes all over the Bay Area, not just in the City (I've been to some in Sunnyvale and in Oakland and in Berkeley). Pretty jealous that you have FlyBarre and Barre3, as I haven't tried FlyBarre yet, and Barre3 is one of the better barre-based classes in terms of being body friendly and well-organized. (Some of the others….not so much. I might be blogging about that soon.)

    So far I've tried Barry's Bootcamp (ouch, but in a good way), Flywheel Sunnyvale, BodyFi (great 30-45 minute circuit classes–no time to mess around), Fitwise Pilates (screaming deal for reformer classes), Laughing Lotus Yoga, and I can't even remember where else. They keep adding studios, so the number of choices is pretty ridiculous 🙂 You might give yoga a try with an instructor who teaches alignment-based yoga; as a yoga teacher, I know you're supposed to help everyone have a good class experience, and just saying a pose name is not teaching.

      Can't wait to read about your experience with ClassPass! Yeah, Barre3 is really great, it's still my favorite studio and barre class <3 Bootcamp sounds good, I have to try it! You are so right, I'll give yoga a try 🙂
      Wow, you live in SF area, I'm jealous!
      I hope you had great and healthy holidays

    It is very much required and demanding for the heroes and heroins that they remain n their physique and remain fit and fr this they usually go for acupuncture to get side effects free treatment.
