Where are all my workout pals?! I absolutely love using ClassPass to explore all of the different Dallas fitness studios. There are truly so many places to work out at in Dallas! But trying to go to each of them on their own can become really pricey, such as exploring studios that offer reformer pilates in Dallas.It’s so important to find a place that you feel welcomed at, you enjoy the workout and it’s easy to make part of your routine. This is where ClassPass comes in for me! I can use ClassPass to explore all of the different workout studios in DFW without having to make a huge commitment to a studio right off the bat.
I’ve barely made a dent into all of the fitness studios in Dallas Fort Worth, but I wanted to share some of my experiences below. And if you’ve tried a studio I haven’t been to, I would LOVE to hear about it! Sharing is caring. And of course, as I visit more studios, I’ll be sure to update. Speaking of sharing, if you want to hear about ClassPass from another person and not just me, check out this ClassPass review from my friend Lauryn!

And on that note, let’s dive into some of the Dallas Fitness Studios on ClassPass! PS- if you ever need a workout buddy, let me know! And tag me in your stories/posts (@StreetsBeatsEats) if you visit one of the studios, I’d love to see where you’re working out at in Dallas!

Caulfields Dance Fitness
If you’re looking for a place to shake your booty, Caulfield’s Dance Fitness is calling your name. There are a few different class types, but I personally love the Cardio Hip Hop class. You start out with a few counts of choreography and repeat it a few times. Add a few more counts, dance it out. By the end of class you’ve learned a pretty large chunk of choreography which works both your brain and your body. I always break a sweat and have a good time doing it! You can also take classes like sculpt, half sculpt and half dance, or a dance class that is a bit more cardio (jumping) based. PS- no dance experience needed!
If you’re looking for an open gym space, I couldn’t recommend Hidden Gym more. It’s located in Allen for anyone looking for North Dallas/suburb options. They have a large space with cardio machines, Olympic lifting set up, weight room, turf, boxing, lots of squat racks, a sprint tunnel and more. It’s 1 credit (usually) on ClassPass. You sign up for a time and can show up within 2 hours of that time. I usually sign up at 7am and get there between 7-8am depending on if I snooze my alarm or not.
I started working out at SESSION Pilates in March 2019 and have loved it ever since. SESSION is my favorite reformer pilates in Dallas (and Plano!) when I’m looking for a class that is a little outside of the box. Classes always keep me on my toes! You can book on ClassPass at any of their 4 locations. Some of my favorite instructors you must try are West Gissinger and Ashley Hopson.
I know reformer pilates can be extremely intimidating, so I highly recommend to introduce yourself to the instructor beforehand to help your nerves a bit. It’s the perfect opportunity to let them know you’ve never taken pilates before, if you have any injuries and if there’s anything you’re nervous about! SESSION is very friendly to all body types and a welcoming place to workout. But no matter how welcoming a place is, of course it’s a little smoother to try something new together, so bring a friend! PS- code STREETSBEATSEATS will get you your first class free!
Intensity at Fit Social Club
One of my best finds in Dallas using ClassPass: Fit Social Club! I take the Intensity class which is as close to personal training I’ll ever get (because hello budget), but I’m okay with that! The coaches take the time to make sure you know exactly what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. I love getting to lift weights in a controlled environment. There’s no shuffling around the room, you stay put at your own station. It reminds me of lifting weights back when I was in high school sports (but more fun!!).
I love that you can workout with friends in the group class environment, but everyone works at their own speed. PS- they also offer spin class here!
When I am looking for a more classic flow, the reformer pilates studio in Dallas Fort Worth I book at is Club Pilates. They have a few locations on ClassPass that are in the Richardson area, super convenient for me personally. Club Pilates is a “chain” reformer pilates studio in Dallas where you can find traditional classes, cardio, TRX, recovery and other formats.
Pure Barre Richardson
Pure Barre is one of the few ClassPass options in Richardson- well any workout class option for that matter. Not sure why Richardson isn’t part of the group fitness movement? I would kill for a cycle studio up here!! But I digress…
Pure Barre is a very low impact style of class. It’s all about the small movements to make big changes in your body. I love how welcoming the studio is to everyone. I’ve tried multiple instructors and each of them were very welcoming to me, as well as the gals who take classes there! I would suggest this class to anyone who is just getting into working out and wants a safe space to move there body, and also to the workout fanatics who want to mix up their routine.
Kettle Booty at TruFusion
I have only gone to TruFusion one time since starting on my ClassPass journey. TruFusion is at the Park Lane and 75 intersection in Dallas- which is great for convenience to get to + the parking situation is great. I took the Kettle Booty class- it was a barefoot bootcamp style class. It was certainly outside of my comfort zone, but I survived! It was a high calorie burning class, but not something I would suggest for beginners. I feel pretty in shape, but I felt a little out of place in class.
Would I try again? Sure! Is it something that I’ve gotten hooked on, clearly not. But there are so many different class types for someone who wants a variety of classes within one studio home.
Black Swan Yoga
I tried my first Yin Yoga class at Black Swan Yoga recently and it was such a fun change of pace! I didn’t book through ClassPass, but saw they were a Dallas yoga studio on ClassPass and had to add to the list! As I go back and explore more, I’ll be sure to share! Until then, let me know if you’ve gone!
Bodybar Pilates is another reformer pilates studio in Dallas Fort Worth with locations in Dallas and Plano. They have one class that I think is super unique and fun called Reformer JUMP! t’s exactly what it sounds like. You put a board at the bottom of the reformer and jump up and down on it. This studio also incorporates the tower into some of the classes, but I haven’t tried a tower class before.
Core Power Yoga
I realized hot yoga was not for me at Core Power Yoga in Uptown. While the space was beautiful, that heat is intense. I also found parking to be a bit tricky when I did my class, but not so bad that I would avoid it. They offer a variety of class styles that you can choose from.
I was really stoked about this class at D1, but left disappointed. The overall experience left a bad taste in my mouth from the front desk check in, to the warm up, class, instructor and even after class. I would not recommend attending a class here unless you have a background and prior knowledge of lifting weights with proper form.
