ClassPass Review: Elixir Pilates

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Pilates is the top reason I got ClassPass and it has WAY been paying off. The specialized equipment and instructor training make classes pretty expensive (on average I see about $20-25 per single group session, $13-15 per group session if bought in a package, and $60-80 for an individual session) and it’s not always an affordable fitness option, especially when you also want to do spinning, kickboxing, yoga… But with ClassPass, at $99/month, I’ve already gotten my money’s worth. I’ll have to do a breakdown of the costs one of these days…

Since it is an off time, it was just me and one other regular taking class from the owner, Kathryn. Normally a duet session is $35, which is more than 1/3 of my total monthly ClassPass cost, so I was already feeling pretty good about my situation!

The space was very clean, open, and inviting. It was boutique-y without feeling too small business (you know?) and had lots of natural light flooding through the large front windows.
