A good hard workout is empowering and feels amazing. Finding available workout classes or a studio that offers exactly what you want—also quite challenging, but not in that same invigorating type of way. Leave it to SF to have way too many options (#sfproblems), as well as the perfect app to solve just the issue.
Zenrez is a new on-demand app that will help you discover the best fitness studios near you and book classes last-minute. When you’re ready to find a class, book it, and go. Carpe Diem 101.
By carefully curating its studio partners, Zenrez brings you only the highest quality classes. Find your neighborhood, browse class styles, and forget the often confusing Yelp tug-o-war of the good, the bad, and the ugly reviews.
Zenrez is smart too. Class prices are based on demand, with some spots up to 40% off the drop-in rate, depending on the time and day of the week. Thumbs up to an app that has no membership fees or costs attached. You are on your way to fitness success.
