People have taken care of their fitness and beauty needs this year with ClassPass, and the health club aggregator thinks that trend will continue in 2022.

“Since January 2021, fitness bookings have increased 329% and spa and beauty bookings have increased 428%,” the company wrote in a recent trend report. “ClassPass members are now booking 10% more than before the pandemic.”

ClassPass analyzed its internal fitness and beauty bookings and considered classes that will be available next year to determine “emerging themes as we return to studios, salons, spas and offices.”

Here’s a look at the classes and treatments that topped ClassPass reservations in 2021 and what the wellness company predicts for 2022.

ClassPass users opted for fitness classes that burned significant calories. Strength training, yoga, cycling, Pilates and barre were the most popular on the booking app. Fitness junkies have also turned to boxing, general gym time, running, live yoga and dancing.

“For the first time ever, the dance class beat the top 10 most popular fitness classes booked,” ClassPass noted.
