You’re addicted to Pure Barre, but your current ClassPass membership only affords you three visits to your fave studio per month (womp, womp). Sound like a familiar struggle? Good news: ClassPass just made a major update that’ll make your workout woes disappear.
The fitness app just announced that they’re doing away with the studio limit, so you can go to your favorite workout spot as much as you damn well please.

Other perks: The company is adding additional premium class slots with studio partners, so there will be a greater chance that you’ll be able to slide into that primo class you’ve been eying (that coveted 6 p.m. bootcamp, anyone?).
Also, if you’re already a member, you’ve probably noticed ClassPass has been using a credit-based system, rather than a fixed class number. After positive responses to this model, the company will now be dynamically adjusting the credits, to help reflect the value of the class. Which means, depending on how you use your credits, you can try even more classes each month.
And, as part of their new flexible credit-based model, they’re allowing members to roll over up to 10 credits a month. Which means no more wasted classes!
The old system “had constraints,” ClassPass CEO Fritz Lanman admits. “Customers told us that if they were willing to deal with the constraints, ClassPass worked really well for them,” he added.
But some people made it clear that they were frustrated with the fact that they could only visit their favorite studio three times a month, or that studios would sometimes black out desirable class times, leaving only spots they’d have no chance of selling open to ClassPass users.
Now, Lanman says, you can hit up your favorite spot as much as you want—and all classes should be available to you. “The historical constraints that existed no longer exist,” he says. The overall goal, Lanman says, is for ClassPass customers to be happier and work out more.
ClassPass users in New York City can expect their membership rates of $45, $75, or $135 a month, to stay the same, says Lanman. No word on how prices may change in any of ClassPasses other cities.
BTW: ClassPass founder Payal Kadakia says that the company is testing out letting users spend their credits on massage, acupuncture, and cryotherapy. If testing goes well, they’ll roll it out to everyone.
“We just want to continue to make it easy for people where they can book their time,” she says.
The new ClassPass changes rolled out on Thursday, March 1.
