Updated, Sept. 7.
If you’ve been waiting to kick those New Year’s fitness resolutions into gear, there’s no time better than September.
Monthly subscription service ClassPass announced Aug. 22 that it’s coming to Pittsburgh and later said it would launch Sept. 12.
“You have the freedom to go to a yoga class and a spin class and a dance class, whatever your fitness interest is,” ClassPass spokesperson Ashley Hennings said.
There’s no sign-up fee, no yearly commitment, and you can cancel or pause at any time, she said.
Added perk: When you travel, ClassPass goes with you. So if you’re in New York City for work, for example, you can update your settings in the app and take a class in the city. ClassPass is currently in 31 U.S. cities and eight international cities.
Here’s how it works:
- Pittsburgh sign-ups are now open. Get on the waiting list to get your ClassPass in September.
- Buy a ClassPass (next month).
- Search the ClassPass app or website for a class, filtering by location, time of day or type of workout.
- Lastly, book the class online and show up.
Here’s what you’ll pay per month in Pittsburgh:
- $20 for 3 classes
- $30 for 5 classes
- $60 for 10 classes
Some examples of who’s signed on so far, per ClassPass:
- Barre 3 (Canonsburg)
- Cycletique (Bethel Park)
- Dragonfly Pilates (Shadyside)
- Exhale (Downtown)
- Mecka Fitness (Mt. Lebanon)
- Meraki Studio (Strip District)
- Northside Yoga (North Side)
- Zenergy Cycling (Shadyside)

“We do a lot of diligent research any time we expand into a new city,” Hennings said. “We’re super excited to be there.”
