ClassPass v. FitReserve Update

During my classhopping-hiatus, there’s been some changes to both FitReserve and ClassPass. Here’s the update:

ClassPass:

  • Various pricing plans starting at $49/27-credits a month and go up to $174/100 credits a month with a Blink Gym membership included.
  • Classes range in “credit price” from 2-16 credits per class depending on the posh-ness and desirability of the studio/gym.
  • Up to 10 credits will roll over to the next month.
  • You can visit most studios as often as you which, although the credit cost might increase.
  • You can buy extra credit packs starting at $5 for 2 credits (in case you’re just short of being able to book a coveted spot at Barry’s Bootcamp!)
  • Class Cancellation Policy: you’ll be charged $15 for late cancel (less than 12 hours) or $20 for missing a class in the U.S.
  • ClassPass is available in multiple cities across the globe.
  • Membership Cancellation Policycancel anytime (before your next billing-cycle), but there “could be” a $79 re-activation fee.
  • Has app for iOS and Android

FitReserve

  • Flexible price structure starting at $49/month for 3 classes and going up to $349/month for 20 classes or a FitReserve Plus which includes membership to New York Sports Club gyms starting at $99/month.
  • 4 classes per studio each month.
  • Cancellation fees for late cancel and missed classes vary depending on the studio
  • Includes discounts with affiliated partners on things like clothing, healthy snacks and massage
  • Can cancel anytime, but there is a $49 re-activation fee if you cancel your FitReserve membership and want to re-join
  • iOS app available (but no Android app yet).

Whereas, before it looked more like this:

ClassPass:

  • $125/month for unlimited classes at over 300 studios in New York metro area (previously $99/month)
  • offered in 30 major cities
  • 3 classes per studio each month
  • no included discounts with affiliated partners
  • can be VERY hard to book classes at peak hours for hot studios like Exceed and Barry’s Bootcamp
  • Can cancel anytime (before your next billing-cycle), but there is a $79 re-activation fee if you cancel your ClassPass membership and then want to re-join
  • Has mobile app for iPhone, but not Android users

FitReserve

  • More flexible price structure: $79/month for 5 classes, $149/month for 10 classes, $249 for 20 classes at over 70 studios (so far) in NYC
  • offered NYC Metro area and Boston
  • 4 classes per studio each month
  • incudes discounts with affiliated partners on things like clothing, healthy snacks and massage
  • access to all class time slots (easier to book choice time slots than ClassPass)
  • Can cancel anytime, but there is a $49 re-activation fee if you cancel your FitReserve membership and want to re-join
  • No mobile app yet

BOTH Services:

  • Have a $15 late cancellation fee (if you cancel less than 12 hours before class starts)
  • Charge $20 if you don’t show up to a class you booked (I’ve heard of people checking in to their classes and  walking right back out the door to avoid the fee!)
