After spending more than an hour searching for an open ballet class, Payal Kadakia, a Warner Music corporate employee, decided that she would quit corporate life and start her own business. ClassPass was founded in 2013.
Similar to Groupon, ClassPass provides access to dozens of fitness classes, everything from aerobics to Zumba, using a flat monthly rate of $99 per month. Clients sign up for classes in advance. There is a $20 fee for missing classes.
In March 2018, ClassPass added live-stream fitness classes for $15 per month. Later that year, ClassPass added service to Thailand.
The corporate office for ClassPass is located in New York, New York.
