POPin Review

Hate committing monthly memberships to gyms or fitness apps? Hate working out at home? Have a crazy work or school schedule that doesn’t work with typical boutique fitness class schedules? POPin is your solution!

If you followed this blog for the past few years through law school and the rest of it, you know my schedule doesn’t stay consistent enough to commit to monthly memberships at gyms. Even using class packs at boutique fitness studios is a struggle with my schedule.  Plus lots of class packs expire so you just end up losing money if you don’t use the class.  POPin is such an amazing solution to that!

With a commitment to flexible fitness that requires no commitment from you, this app grants users access to membership-only facilities, paying only for the time they use. The platform recently expanded to seven new NYC locations including: Limelight Fitness, GYM NYC, Tribeca Health & Fitness, 60 LES, BOSS NYC, and — their first two Brooklyn locations — Green Fitness Studio and Body Elite Health & Fitness Center.

POPiN is super easy to use. Simply download the app to find a nearby health club that fits with your preferences and location. Then, check in at the front desk using the app. When the workout is finished, make sure to scan out at the front desk to automatically pay.

The app also grants access to amenities, including showers, pools, saunas, and steam rooms. Pricing starts at just 16 cents a minute — less than $10 for an hour-long sweat — and goes up to 26 cents.

My law school wife, Gloria, and I went to Complete Body in FiDi two weeks ago.  It was so easy to use the app.  We simply checked in with the app and went to go workout.  The best thing about this location is that it has a steam room and sauna in addition to a rock climbing wall and showers. Plus no need to bring a lock as the lockers are digital.

Note: POPin allowed me to visit a member gym for free but I was in no way compensated to review it on my blog. These are my honest opinions.
