Get swole with ClassPass

ClassPass came to Charlotte early this year and the fitness community rejoiced for what has become one of the most popular ways to get svelte, toned, jacked — whatever you’re after — in the Queen City. ClassPass is a monthly membership to a network of upscale, boutique fitness studios spanning from Lake Norman to Pineville and, despite the price tag, I jumped to join. You can’t put a price on fitness, right? Right.

The details:

  • $79 per month
  • 3 visits per gym per month
  • Book online or with the ClassPass app
  • Cancellation fees (hello, accountability!)
  • Pause for a month at any time for $19 with one class included for that month

As a ClassPass member, you’re able to try so many different gyms and find what’s right for you. The scoop on 5 ClassPass gyms:
