For any guy who needs a little extra motivation to get to the gym, group fitness classes can be his solution. And unlike the classes of the '90s, where groups of women wore leotards and jazzercised to "Ice Ice Baby," today's offerings are man-friendly, crazy-effective—and the options are endless. In fact, they are so many options—from HIIT classes to cycling to rowing to yoga... the list goes on—you may not be able to chose just one favorite. Enter ClassPass, a monthly membership service that gives you the keys to a huge network of fitness studios in your area—from participating franchise gyms to small boutique clubs worldwide. (The service, available for $125/month, gives you access to an unlimited number of classes in a month with one caveat: You can only visit each specific location up to three times.)
Though relatively new (it launched in 2014), ClassPass has seen marked success as a tool for men and women with the goal to experience new genres of exercise, relieve themselves of workout boredom, and plainly, to try something different. And in doing that, they've compiled a ton of data (based on 594,036,380 minutes of exercise logged by users as of December 11, 2015) on trends, members' habits, and more.
