This year's Racked Award winner for the best fitness newcomer now has more options for clients. The the on-demand fitness service is offering $99 per month, unlimited passes for all its signature workouts and partnering studios. The new program is called Passport, and it's strikingly similar to ClassPass, another Racked Award winner.
"With our 'All You Can Sweat' Passport, we are providing more ways for our mobbers to sweat while increasing demand at local studios that rely on filling classes to sustain their business," Fitmob Founder and CEO Raj Kapoor tells Racked. "With Passport, you never get bored and the social element keeps you motivated to workout."
This new approach also removes the problems Fitmob previously experienced with finding venues to host classes. There are 73 studios, boutique gyms, and curated trainers currently in the Passport mix to serve the 18,000 (and growing) members in the Fitmob community.
Update: This post has been corrected to reflect that Fitmob will impose a three visit per studio limit, and that there will not be a trial period offer.
