Classpass Is In Session With $40 Million In Series B | TechCrunch
I work out a little math in my head. If the average class is $24 (to keep things even), and we give Classpass a generous 50 percent discount from the gyms, then she’s paying $12 for the class. If a user spends $99 on the Classpass and goes to all ten of their classes every month, Classpass is losing money.

Let’s assume an even higher discount, as the $24 comes from the price of a single class, which is significantly decreased when classes are purchased in a package. At a 75 percent discount, Classpass is paying $6/class. The power user goes to all 10 classes for the month, costing Classpass $60. That’s a nice margin.

And according to Payal, the average person (not the average Classpass user — she was careful not to talk about those metrics either) works out between four and six times a month, so once a week. You apply the same hypothesized discounts to the average human behavior of four to six workouts per month and you’ve got an excellent business.

Vint Launches A Monthly Subscription Service Offering Unlimited On-Demand Fitness Training | TechCrunch
eliminate the friction involved in fitness — committing to a contract at the gym, making time to go, and sticking with a routine. While I certainly believe that workout schedules and gym membership are daunting and a turn off to many that would like to get in better shape, I’d say the biggest “friction” when it comes to fitness is shear human laziness

Fitness subscription service for any type of fitness you like.

Why investors don't fund dating
I’ve been listening to the excellent Season 2 of the podcast Startup, which gives an inside look at YCombinator startup The Dating Ring (NYT coverage here). The episodes are all great. They talk about many important topics, but I had some specific comments on fundraising for dating products. Here’s a simple fact: It’s super hard to get a dating product funded …
