Classpass Los Angeles: The Best Studios to Try

Classpass Los Angeles - Studios Worth Trying | by The Luxi Look wearing Grana Activewear

My workout routine is constantly changing. I get bored of the same class after a while, not to mention your body plateaus if you keep doing the same thing. If you’re bored with your current routine or not seeing changes in your body, you may want to check out Classpass. I’ve debated writing this post for a long time, because my relationship with Classpass Los Angeles has been on and off.

For those of you that aren’t familiar – Classpass describes itself as 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.

Anyone who is familiar with boutique fitness classes understands that they run anywhere from $12-$30 for a single class, with unlimited monthly memberships at some studios running upwards of $300/month! From a value perspective, CToday, pricing for Classpass Los Angeles (may vary in the city you live in) begins at $40/month for 3 classes, $60/month for 5 classes, and $115/month for 10 classes, with options to purchase additional classes through the app if you use up all of your classes for the month. If you’re a boutique fitness class never, this makes having a Classpass membership a no brainer!

I like to switch between the 5 and 10 class per month memberships, which gives me flexibility to try different studios and mix up my routine. While the new Classpass isn’t as much of a deal as the unlimited version, it’s still by far the best bang for your buck in terms of taking a variety of boutique fitness classes. Here are the classes that I think are worth trying on Classpass Los Angeles. These are the studios that I’ve tried and love, some of them I actually buy classes from outside of Classpass as well, because 2-3x a month just doesn’t cut it for me.

My Favorite Classpass Los Angeles Studios

Barry’s Bootcamp – if you want a challenging workout that gives you results, go here. My favorite workout by far – the combination of weights and treadmill intervals will help you reach your fitness goals fast.

Y7 Yoga – my favorite yoga studio in LA. Heated, set to hip hop music, and in a super dark room with no mirrors (= no judgement). It’s unlike any hot yoga class I’ve ever taken. Less spiritual (if you’re looking for that vibe, I like Modo Yoga), but always a good sweat and workout.

The Studio MDR – hands down the best megaformer (pilates on crack) workout in the city. I drove from West Hollywood to Culver City/Marina Del Rey for over a year to take classes here. The commute got to be too long, but I still have a huge soft spot for The Studio MDR. Classes on their own are expensive, but worth it! If you find a rare spot open on Classpass, snag it asap!

Hot Pilates – I love heated classes, and these get HOT! Normally mat pilates classes don’t do it for me, but I really enjoy the Hot Pilates Sculpt class. You will sweat and leave feeling 5 pounds lighter.

Ballet Bodies – I’m obsessed with the stretch class. Every time I go to this class, I leave asking myself why I don’t go every week. It’s a must, especially if you have tight hips from running/cycling. Bonus – grab a juice or smoothie from Beverly Hills Juice Company next door after.

JJ Dancer – might just be the best class on Classpass. Not an exaggeration. Even if you’re not a dancer (I’m certainly not), you’ll have so much fun in this class. Choreographed dance moves set to hip hop music followed by a barre-esque toning portion. I tell everyone about this class because I love it so much.

Other Classpass LA Studios

Sweat Garage – similar workout to Barry’s Bootcamp. The studio is more bare bones but the classes are insanely tough. Go to Derek’s class – his treadmill portion is the hardest I’ve taken (90 second sprints, whaat?).

Training Mate – fun circuit training based workout. The atmosphere is super social, so bring a friend.

Platefit – some people love it, I couldn’t handle the vibrations. The vibrating plate made me feel nauseous and the workout was just ok.

Cycle House – personally not the biggest fan of spin but everyone else seems to love it. This one has a bit of a cult following. Classes are intense and you will sweat a LOT.

Flywheel – again, if spinning is your thing, definitely check out Flywheel.

Burn 60 – I prefer Barry’s + Sweat Garage to Burn 60, but it’s still a good treadmill + weights workout if you’re looking for that. The instructors aren’t as dynamic as the ones at Barry’s, and I found myself having to motivate myself more. Also, it smells like fried chicken when you leave the studio, thanks to the Pavilion’s next door. #willpower

Lift Society – I’ve only taken Glute Lift (it’s exactly what it sounds like). As a weight training newbie, I appreciated the emphasis on form and small class size.

These are the classes in the West Hollywood/Mid City/Hollywood area that I’ve taken and would recommend. I’ve taken classes at other studios that just weren’t as memorable, so if you have a question about any in the area give me a holler. Now that there’s a limit on the number of classes you take a month, Classpass feels less like a membership to help you find new studios, and more like an affordable way to take boutique fitness classes at a handful of your favorite spots. If you’re used to working out 5+ days a week, you’ll either need to adjust your routine or supplement with a membership elsewhere.

Grana was kind enough to send a couple sets of their new activewear to me to try out. I’ve tested and worn their basics before (here and here) and have always been blown away by the quality and prices of their pieces. Despite having a closet full of yoga pants, I was missing a pair of the perfect black leggings. These photos were quickly snapped with my photog and friend, Lauren, before running off to a bootcamp class together. I wore this black set for the first time and was surprised by how comfortable the material was and how well the fabric wicked off moisture during even a very intense and VERY sweaty workout sesh.

Honestly, I really, really love these leggings and the best part is they’re only $49. The matching bra is only $29. Sizing is slightly smaller than in the US, so size up if you’re unsure.

I’ve been impressed by a lot of Grana’s launches, but the activewear line may actually be my favorite (so far!).

    You look amazing dear! I remember when my friends signed up when they first came out with classpass as well, and they were having all these promos and memberships were so inexpensive… so crazy how far they’ve come! Glad you’re enjoying the classes though… nothing beats being healthy and fit 🙂

    I am so glad to hear that about the Grana pieces! I am looking forward to giving them a go soon myself. I also worked with Classpass all of last year and managed to try a heap of our local studios as well. It was such a wonderful way to mix up my workouts, try different things and even just get to try different yoga studios to see which instructors I liked the most. There were so many amazing options! It’s such a great idea!

    Ballet Bodies sounds like a class I’d be interested in, I’ll have to find something similar in my area. You look amazing in activewear by the way, so gorgeous!

  11. Siffat Haider says:

    I actually just started doing classes here in Toronto and am getting Class Pass next month!

  12. Lena says:

    That sounds like a great deal to try out different classes based on your own choice! I’ve heard about it but never got a chance to check it out so with Spring around the corner it’s the perfect time to explore :). Btw love your work out gear; so functional and chic! 🙂 xo~ Lena

  13. Kathryn says:

    That Grana sports bra is so cute, I just love the criss cross back! Classpass sounds like a really great way to try out different classes and have that variety. It seems like it might be a little frustrating, though, if your favs always filled up or you had to supplement it with another membership.
