Ever wondered what it’s like to take a Gympass class? Let one of our insiders fill you in!

Earlier this month, fitness coach and Gympass ambassador Nadia Cherelle crushed her first workout as a Gympass user. She visited a Barre3 studio in Washington, D.C. and “loved the class!” Check out what else she had to say about the experience below.

How did you use Gympass to find a workout class?

I used the Gympass app by logging in and then hitting the search button to see what classes were offered in my immediate area. I found Barre3 and all the classes at the closest studio were full, so I booked at another location.

Why did you choose Barre3?

I’ve always wanted to try Barre3 and was in the mood for a class that was less weight-intensive. I know barre is more body-weight-focused and has dance-like movements, so I thought it would be a great idea.

What did you do to prepare for your workout?

I checked the Gympass app to make sure I was confirmed in the class and then I read over the instructions set by the studio in the app. I grabbed a water bottle from my home, put on my favorite leggings and sports bra, and arrived at the studio 15 minutes before class began.

What did you think of the check-in process?

Checking in on the Gympass app was easy and fast. After checking in, I spoke to the woman at the desk, gave her my name, and told her I was a Gympass member. She found me in the system and had me complete a quick waiver.

How was your workout?

I loved the class! It was challenging and the coach was very detailed in her movements and instruction. It was just the body-weight burn I needed.

What Gympass classes are you interested in taking in the future?

I’m looking forward to trying another Barre3 class and also going to a few CrossFit classes. 

What was your favorite thing about using Gympass for the first time?

My favorite thing was the excitement of seeing all the gyms and classes I had access to in my area and getting to choose a workout based on my current personal training schedule and mood.
