You know the best software is created through collaboration and iteration, which is exactly why you're looking for the right opportunity, and the right team, to expand your experience.

About ClassPass

ClassPass is an American fitness startup company based in New York City and founded by dancer Payal Kadakia and Mary Biggins. The company offers a flat-rate monthly subscription service to get access to participating fitness classes in 30+ American cities, as well as in Toronto, Vancouver, Sydney, Melbourne and London. Sanjeev Sanghavi was the companys cofounding partner—he left in January 2014. Before starting the company, Kadakia worked for Warner Music and is a graduate of MIT. The company was originally called DabbleNYC, then renamed to Classtivity. An earlier version of the companys product was intended to sell a better registration system to fitness studios but this did not receive much interest. After participating in the TechStars accelerator, the company switched to offering a package deal where users could pay $49 for ten classes in a year, a model that Kadakia likened to Groupon. Users of the service wanted to use the pass service again so the company switched to offering the 'Passport', a subscription service for $99 a month. The company enforces a cancellation fee of $20 for missing classes. As of 2016, ClassPass has booked over 17 million fitness reservations. Payal Kadakia is the CEO and co-founder of ClassPass. She is an Indian American trained in Indian classical dance, and grew up in Randolph, New Jersey. In 2005, she graduated from MIT with a degree in Operations Research. After college, Kadakia worked as a consultant at Bain & Company. She went on to work at Warner Music Group. In 2008, while working at Warner, she also founded Sa Dance Company.
