Why should I use Recess over another Fitness platform?

Recess is an all-in-one place for fitness. No need to download multiple apps, go to different places to book or buy multiple tokens. Our platform hosts every type of class, in every time zone and you only need one link to make it to class.

Why should I use Recess over another streaming platform?

We have taken feedback from 100s of people - both instructors and clients - to make the best video and audio experience possible. The Live Room has been tailor made for fitness with built in music controls, workout cards, timers and much more. All you have to do is hit join and have fun. Our video is also two way so you will always be able to engage with your instructor and friends in a class.

How is this better than just taking my favorite studio’s classes?

When you just go to one studio, you might find a couple instructors you really enjoy. But after a while you get into a routine and they have no reason to introduce you to anything new. Our platform helps you discover new instructors while also supporting your favorites. A standard studio also usually takes somewhere around 30% of what you pay for the class - we take closer to .05%. So you can better support the instructors you love and find new and exciting classes too.
