ClassPass released nine free Zoom backgrounds to amp up your home gym and help you feel like you’re back in the studio. For fitness enthusiasts who are improvising fitness spaces in their kitchens and bedrooms, these backgrounds are a perfect way to upgrade your in-home gym. There is an option for every mood from zen yoga vibes to big HIIT energy, and ClassPass offers a variety of classes to pair with every backdrop.
“With so many of us stuck at home, we want to help people feel like they’re traveling to their favorite studio, working out with their community and having fun — even if their laundry is piling up in the background,” says ClassPass Creative Director Tatiana Kuzmowycz. “Over the years we’ve shot in partner studios across the globe, and we’re excited to share some of these beautiful locations with our community.”
Ready to break in your new studio? Start by downloading the ClassPass gym backgrounds. Once you have downloaded the Zoom app for Mac or Windows, open the app and sign in. Click on your profile picture, then click on Settings. In the left menu bar, click on the Virtual Background tab and select the background of your choice. Next, book your favorite class and tune in!
Each week, more than 50,000 pay-as-you-go digital classes offered from 4,000 studio partners are available through the ClassPass catalog. With a diverse range of classes including yoga, strength training, HIIT, dance, Pilates and boxing, there is something for everyone. One of the advantages of online classes is the ability to try a studio out from anywhere in the world.
The ClassPass Together We Sweat series celebrates the power of inclusivity and intention, inviting individuals of all ages, abilities and geographies to move together from the safety of their homes. No equipment is needed and participants are able to join live workouts from anywhere in the world.
This Friday, May 15 at 12 pm, ClassPass is taking a virtual trip right here to Miami for a high-intensity cardio and strength workout taught by KAMPS. This masterclass will be taught by KAMPS founder Sam Karl, along with his brother and co-founder Ari Karl. All you need is a water bottle and towel and a bit of space to get moving!
“Group workouts build camaraderie, accountability and community. When we show up to support and challenge each other, we work harder and grow stronger,” says Shari Castelli, ClassPass Director of Partner Expansion. “Together We Sweat is a series for people from all backgrounds to move without judgment or expectation, and to commit to doing something positive together.”
The previous Together We Sweat workouts have been taught by fitness studios around the globe including Lean Bean (Sydney), Ground Zero (Singapore), The Platform (Dubai), Saints & Stars (Amsterdam), BLOK (London), Rumble (New York) and 305 Fitness (Los Angeles). All classes are completely free of charge and are streamed from ClassPass’ YouTube Live channel.
