ClassPass is a new kind of gym membership that grants you access to thousands of different classes at studios and gyms in your city and around the world. Price of membership depends on your plan type and city, and you can book and explore classes ranging from yoga to barre to cycling to martial arts.
So naturally my friends and I signed up for a 2 week membership (4 classes) to try the latest shit out.

Ryde: I used my first 2 passes at Ryde, Houston. I’m currently obsessed with this place. After being a hard-core Soul Cycle fan I didn’t think I’d ever enjoy another spin class, but Ryde proved me wrong. The bikes are 100x better than any other studio, and same goes for the cycling shoes. It’s a little more intimate because the owners are the one’s teaching the class. It’s not as luxe as Soul (it’s $10 cheaper) but it’s still nice af. I enjoyed it because it feels more like a workout, whereas Soul feels like a party.
Yoga One: So I’ve taken a Yoga One class before at the Midtown location and I remember loving it. I signed up for a class at the Uptown location through classpass and truthfully I hated it. The location isn’t nearly as nice as the Midtown one. MUCH TO MY DISMAY IT WASN’T HOT YOGA. Take note that this was totally my fault for not reading the description of the class. We signed up for Flow and apparently that was mentioned in the bio, whoops. What’s the point of a non-heated yoga class? I’m tryna sweat.
Define: I used my last classpass at Define Revolution because I’ve always wanted to try it out! There’s one near my house but the only available class was at 5 am so I drove to the River Oaks location. It was beautiful and honestly I was a little shocked. The class was a lot more intimate as there were less bikes. They also don’t give you a bike number so you’re free to sit wherever you want. It was nice because the instructor really paid attention to me and helped me perfect the moves. However, I didn’t care for the bike itself that much.. felt a little out-dated. I’m not obsessed with Define because there are better studios in Houston, but it was a good workout!
Overall, I had a great experience with classpass. I’m all for trying new things, and this was a fun way to get out of my comfort zone. I prefer workout classes to the gym because the instructors force me to workout. I’m planning on taking a kickboxing class soon so I’ll let y’all know how that goes.
As always, thanks for reading,
