ClassPass, a tech firm with a large headquarters office in downtown Missoula, has been acquired by Mindbody, another wellness-focused tech company.

ClassPass was founded in 2013 and offers subscription-based access to fitness centers and wellness experiences. Using an app, customers can pay a flat fee and get access to gyms or yoga studios around the world.

The company built a large office in the First Interstate Bank building in downtown Missoula and employed scores of workers, but the pandemic shuttered many of its operations in 2020. People simply weren’t going to gyms or studios.

Now, however, the leaders of both companies say there’s a rebound happening in the health and wellness industry.

“Mindbody’s intent to acquire ClassPass comes on the heels of recent research and data from both companies that proves consumers are getting back to in-person wellness experiences as studios reopen,” a press release from Mindbody states.
