5 Editors Review The Obé Fitness Workout App

Once upon a time, we exercised in situ. We stretched among yoga gurus, pliéd with barre believers, and sweated beside boxing stans; all in low-lit rooms vibrating with pumping bass. And while many of us have made our triumphant returns to gyms and studios across the nation, the mandatory two-year quarantine left some folks with a preference for small-space, at-home personal gyms, and are still chasing innovative ways to boost endorphins and break sweats from the comfort of our living rooms.
This brings us to obé Fitness, that flashy online fitness “school” you've probably seen on Instagram. (Psst — sign up for obé Fitness and get 50% off the first month of your membership.) To see if the workouts are worth sweating for, five members of the Most Wanted team put obé Fitness to the test IRL to discover what the hype was all about. (For purposes of testing, we used the free trial that was available.) Since our initial review, the popular streaming workout platform has amassed millions of fitness fans and was named one of Fast Company’s 10 most innovative wellness companies.
Living up to the platform’s motto of "All in, full out," the stacked fitness offerings now range from up to 22 live classes a day to on-demand offline sessions and preset collections of full fitness challenges. Obé has also launched workout categories like Gym, Ride, and Jump, along with BodyComp (their most intense strength training program) and a “7 Days of obé” starter pack — a program for beginners or people who are getting back into physical activity. Every class comes complete with backdrops drenched in energizing light, sleek equipment, and, of course, the inspiring instructors urging you to "Drive your way to finish!" Pricing and membership options include monthly payments of $19, quarterly payments of $65, or annual payments of $199 (which will save you $125 a year). You can also shop a variety of branded equipment (including sliders and barre balls) to use with any of the 5- to 60-minute class options.
