Sign up for a massive range of fitness classes around the city

1/3

Fitness fans, listen up – ClassPass has launched in Dubai. The global fitness app is now in action in the emirate – and whether you’re a yoga-lover, boxing machine or HIIT fanatic there’s a class for you.

Monthly membership starts at Dhs399, and if you sign up today (Tuesday October 16) you can get a free one-month trial, while spaces last.
The app works in a similar way to established exercise class schemes GuavaPass and Classport, allowing gym bunnies and fitness enthusiasts to sign up to a range of workouts at various studios.

Classes available on the system include barre, Pilates, HIIT, spinning, boxing, strength training and more, at 130 studios including The Platform, Mojo Reformer Pilates, Physique 57, The Warehouse Gym, FlyWheel and CycleBar.

Studios are all over Dubai from Al Quoz to Downtown Dubai, Dubai Marina and Jebel Ali.

Other studios include Reform Athletica, CoreClubPro, A-tone, GFX, TribeFit, BARE, CrossFit GoldBox, 1SIX8, Dryp, Method MVT and PowerCycle.

ClassPass launched in New York in 2013 and is now operating in more than 60 cities worldwide.

“I am convinced we are arriving in Dubai at exactly the right time,” said Fritz Lanman, CEO of ClassPass.

“The city is home to a diverse array of studios that are amplifying a universal fitness culture. Adoption of fitness is on the increase across every demographic and with our market-leading product, business model, technology differentiators and overall product offering, Dubai is ripe for ClassPass."

It also ties in with the upcoming Dubai Fitness Challenge, where residents are encouraged to do 30 minutes of exercise a day for 30 days.

"The Dubai Fitness Challenge’s 30x30 initiative engages the entire population and it’s only natural that many of these residents will be eager to maintain versatility in their fitness routines after the Challenge ends – ClassPass fills this gap with unique credits-based functionality that assures our users of unrivalled choice," added Lanman.

Each class is worth a certain amount of credits, determined by several factors, including time of the class, studio, location, popularity and other factors.

Users can also top up credits if they exceed their monthly plan or roll over credits if they have not used all of them.

"We launched our Dubai waitlist just over a month ago and we have already seen an overwhelming response, with sign-ups exceeding that of other cities in just the first few days,” said Lanman. “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.”

Currently, ClassPass has a global network of more than 10,000 studios and gyms available in 65 countries, which is good news if you’re a bit of a traveller, as your Dubai-based subscription will allow you to tap into the entire global network.

It's time to lace up those trainers and hit the gym.
