Fitness network ClassPass launches in Dubai

By

And there’s a free months membership if you sign up today…

The world’s largest fitness network ClassPass has officially launched in Dubai today, giving Dubai fitness fanatics (and even fitness newbies) access to a whole network of classes.

The first launch in the Middle East, there’s an initial roster of 130 facilities to take advantage of all over Dubai from Jebel Ali to Downtown.

Available on the App Store and Google Play Store, fitness classes range from barre, spin and yoga to boxing, watersports and dance classes.

So how does it work?

Well ClassPass operates on a credits-based model, where users can choose from a certain number of credits each month which can be redeemed by booking classes. Different classes are valued at varying credit rates, impacted by things such as the times of the class, studio, location, popularity and other factors.

Packages start from Dhs399 per month, although users can top up credits if they exceed their monthly plan or roll over credits if they don’t use them up. There’s no limit on how many times you can return to one studio, if there’s a particular class or studio you get hooked on.

Plus if you sign up today, you can earn yourself a months free access with 200 introductory credits.

“Dubai is such a fast-paced, health-conscious city and we are super excited to offer residents unbelievable choice across the highest-level of premium gyms and studios at affordable prices for the very first time,” said Fritz Lanman, CEO of ClassPass.

Having launched in New York City in 2013, ClassPass is currently operational in more than 50 cities across with access to more than 10,000 studios and gyms worldwide. The app is redeemable worldwide, so globetrotters can use their app around the world with a Dubai subscription.
