Drop-in classes are a great way to test the waters, see if you really like something, and kick start some endorphins int'ya in the process.
Dublin is absolutely overflowing with deadly drop-in fitness classes, and so many of them you can pay-as-you-go.
So no pressure, no time-restraints and no more excuses. Deadly.
1. Boxing Class – Underdog Boxing
The boxing class everyone wants a piece of. In here you can try out everything from HIIT to Metabolic Conditioning, training with real boxers, in an easy access location.
Their drop in classes are €19, and definitely worth it. You will come out drenched with sweat, and feeling great.
2. Animal Flow – YogaDublin, 28a Dartmouth Road, Dublin 6
This animalistic work-out is internationally famous for being good fun, a full-body work-out, and a little bit mad. It's on every Sunday in March from 12:30-1:30pm.
The fee is €17 for a drop-in class, or €60 for four classes. Which seems steep, but it's totally worth it.
3. Zumba – Dance And Health
They boast dozens of locations, one of which is certain to suit you.
Drop in is €10, and they have some pretty good deals for long-term rates, if you do end up loving it. Which you will.
4. Drumming Class – Pound Fit
Described as a "cardio jam session" this workout is inspired by the energising and sweat-dripping fun of playing the drums.
€10 for the most intensive yet fun fitness class you'll ever take.
5. Single Pass Class - Yogahub
The yoga place that everyone wants to try.
You can choose from either a Single Lunch Pass for €10, or Single Class Pass for €17. And for when you become hooked, they have some deadly rates to keep you going back.
6. Solo Jumping – Jumpzone
The most fun workout of the lot.

7. Spin Class - Andy Kenny, Unit 31, Trinity Enterprise Centre Pearse Street Dublin 2
Maybe the cheapest in town, with spin classes for the low, low price of €4.
The good thing about here is that classes range from 20min for beginners to 90min advanced classes, so andy has something to suit everyone. These classes are also either pay as you go, starting from €4 or you can become a gym member.
8. Insanity Fitzone, Palmerstown
This gym in Palmerstown offers pay as you go prices of €6 – €10 per class.
You can book classes online or on their app (I know, trendy) and choose from more cardio focused options like ‘Insanity Intervals’ or ‘Circuits’ to the pure strength ‘IFZ Strength’ class. It also has a community feel, so it's seriously good vibes in here.
9. Clubbercise with JP, Temple Bar
At this unconventional yet wildly fun workout class, you'll partake in a group dance workout, in a darkened room, with all the classics blaring. Oh, and there are glo-sticks.
