Half of GuavaPass's staff will be brought across to ClassPass after the merger.

“The GuavaPass founders reached out to us and said that they were raising more money and had some options developing but that they felt they could continue working on their original mission as a part of ClassPass. They are really missionaries for the space. The transaction with GuavaPass will only accelerate our robust growth trajectory as we continue expanding throughout Asia and the Middle East", said ClassPass CEO Fritz Lanman.

ClassPass is now in more than 80 markets across the 11 countries, with plans to expand to 50 new cities in 2019.
