Fitness startup ClassPass announced a new membership option today in the US for everyone out there who doesn't want to commit to spending over $100 every month on boutique fitness.
It's called the "ClassPass Five" and it's kind of like a Netflix for fancy gym classes that never ends. Each month, members can go to five classes from studios in ClassPass's network for a flat fee.
The price varies by market, but it's in the $40 to $70 range. For boutique fitness dabblers, this could be cost effective considering that a single class at a studio could cost $30.
On the flip-side, ClassPass obsessives might need to watch out for price increases on their Unlimited memberships.
The start-up announced that Boston is getting a three-tiered price structure starting today, with a $65 five-class monthly membership, a $120 10-class monthly membership, and a new price of $180 for unlimited memberships (existing members will pay $150 a month).
ClassPass says it has no other city price changes to announce currently, but a rep told Racked that the company is analyzing by market and evaluating things across the board.
