Fitness fans, take note. Global membership app ClassPass is now in action in Dubai – so whether you’re a boxing machine or spinning sensation there’s a class for you.
Think Flywheel, The Platform, BARE and Physique 57 as just some of the partner studios (there are an impressive 130 locations in total). The genius invention – we curse ourselves for not thinking of it – operates a credits-based model whereby users can choose from a certain number of credits each month which they then use to book classes. Different classes carry different credit rates determined by several factors, including time of the class, studio, location and popularity. Fitness fiends can also top up credits if they exceed their monthly plan, roll over credits if they have not used all of them and return to the same studio they get hooked on.
With Dubai marking the app’s first foray into the Middle East, users can also take advantage of the international membership concept and use the app - available from the App Store and Google Play Store - in 65 cities around the world. These include Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok.
And with the Dubai Fitness Challenge (residents take on the mission of exercising for 30 minutes a day for 30 days) soon to start on 26 October, timing couldn’t be better to tighten your trainer laces and head to class.
Packages start from Dhs399 per month. See classpass.com for more information and to sign up
