ClassPass Expands Asia Footprint With Imminent Hong Kong Launch

Hong Kong, September 6, 2018 – The Hong Kong fitness scene will never be the same. Whether you’re a gym junkie, dance extraordinaire, aspiring Spartan or yoga guru, finding the perfect class to fit your packed schedule will soon become effortless.ClassPass, the leading membership to the world’s largest fitness network, is expanding to Hong Kong in October 2018. In line with its global expansion plans, Hong Kong will be one of the next markets in Asia for ClassPass, following its successful Singapore launch in August that saw exceeding demand and user sign-ups.

“We’re seeing a resurgence in the Hong Kong fitness landscape. According to a recent Deloitte report, the APAC fitness market is now worth a record high of US$16.8 billion, and Hong Kong’s relatively low market penetration rate of 5.9 percent shows that there are plenty of opportunities for growth here, said Fritz Lanman, ClassPass CEO. “Hong Kong is a very fast-paced city and people are always on the go. There is an increasing emphasis on flexibility and we’re seeing more people in Hong Kong value the convenience that ClassPass enables.”

Starting from 7 September 2018, fitness enthusiasts can now stay ahead of the curve by registering their interest online at www.classpass.com/try/hong-kongand enjoy free classes in the first month – exclusively available for a limited time only. Be prepared for a diversity of fitness experiences at exclusive studios across Hong Kong, including yoga, cycling, Pilates, barre, running, strength training, HIIT, and more.

Since its inception in 2013, ClassPass has rapidly-grown worldwide and continues to gain momentum, nearly doubling in size annually and raising US$255M in funding to date. With a growing roster of over 10,000 studio, gym and wellness partners, ClassPass has made over 55 million reservations globally, constantly innovating and pushing the future of fitness through new features that enable flexibility and convenience.
