If you haven't hopped on the ClassPass train yet, it's probably time that you did. And if you have, we get it—it's AMAZING! That being said, trying out over 50 participating gyms for $99 a month can be a bit overwhelming. L

Luckily, we're giving you a starting point. We've been able to identify five different workout archaetypes and create sample itineraries for each based off some of our favorite classes in the ClassPass system. From the "Beginner Who Can't Make Up Her Mind" to "The Advanced User Looking for Challenge and Variety," check out these five different itineraries for the perfect week in workouts.
