GoRecess, a new online a-la-carte fitness class booking site, launches its beta just in time to get those summer beach bodies in shape. GoRecess is a one-stop destination to find, book and review fitness classesthat offers access to over 100,000 classes across the U.S. With thousands of studio and class options out there, finding the right one can be overwhelming. GoRecess eliminates the hassle of scouring multiple studio schedules, comparing scattered reviews, and managing various logins to reserve a class. GoRecess is an all-inclusive, user-friendly and free site that makes finding the perfect class fun, simple and seamless.
Inspired by memories of “the best class of the day” in grade school, founders Billy Arzt and Megan Smyth wanted to create a way to bring the fun back to fitness.
“We want users to be able to find a fitness class that they can’t wait to dive into,” says co-founder and CEO Megan Smyth. “A class that offers more than your average gym workout – something communal, different and fun – while providing the flexibility to try new things when you want, where you want.”
GoRecess allows users to select from many different types of classes such as yoga, pilates, barre, CrossFit, Zumba, TRX, indoor cycling, bootcamp, martial arts, and pre/post-natal. Users can easily search and filter based on workout type, schedule, location, price and rating; create and read fitness-focused reviews; and store account information for seamless booking, all in one place. GoRecess is also built with the social elements of working out in mind, making it easy to invite friends and find workout buddies to attend classes with. Studios also will benefit from using GoRecess as an additional marketing platform to attract new customers, fill classes and increase revenue.
“GoRecess appeals to class junkies who are seeking the latest workout craze, casual exercisers who want to try classeswithout committing to expensive gym memberships, and travelers looking to find a workout while on the road,” says co-founder Billy Arzt. “Wherever you are traveling or whatever the time of day you can fit in your workout, GoRecess can help make it happen.”
