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.

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.
