ClassPass Members Can Now Stream Video Workouts from Home
Even the most dedicated ClassPass devotees often bemoan the fact that classes book up quickly. Now, those who can't attend their favorite classes in real life can stream them digitally. As Well+Good reports, ClassPass is now offering over 100 on-demand video workouts, available on both the web and the ClassPass iOS app.
ClassPass members can access a growing video library of classes, featuring instructors from the company's studio partners (such as Barre Body and Nalini Method) and famous fitness gurus like Blogilates’s Cassey Ho. Workouts are searchable by activity, length, and the muscle groups you want to target, so you can find that 15-minute ab-busting workout or slower stretch session. Users will be happy to hear that ClassPass's video offerings do not count towards your monthly class allottment—so the service is a great way to get even more out of your membership.
“Our goal with ClassPass is to have a positive impact on the lives of our members and provide an experience that makes fitness as easy and accessible as possible,” said Payal Kadakia, ClassPass’s founder and executive chairman, in a press release. “The launch of Video on Demand expands upon that vision by giving our users the flexibility to enjoy classes no matter where their lives take them and the option to work out as much as they want.”
In addition to flexibility, the new on-demand videos may also make ClassPass more accessible for the masses. The company hopes that their video workouts will attract “exponentially larger audiences who may currently be hindered from experiencing studio fitness due to cost, location, and scheduling constraints,” the company said. “Video is a natural extension of the ClassPass mission—leveraging digital resources to help make the world a more active place.”
