One of the losses of 2016 is the unlimited ClassPass. But Zenrez is the newest app easing our pain. Think of it like OpenTable or Hotwire for workouts—at 9 PM every night, unfilled spots at your nearest fitness studios are posted. Prices per class are based entirely upon demand, so scoring a really great deal on a day that’s not so busy is always possible.

If you fall into the camp of people who will only consider a workout if it’s torture, than Tone House is for you. It’s fun, extreme, and totally body-changing.
