Boutique fitness booking app ClassPass is expanding its wellness offerings with Getaways – health-themed breaks exclusively curated for its members.

In July, ClassPass announced it will launch in nine cities outside of the US by the end of 2018, and its plan for global domination doesn’t stop there. Thanks to $85 million Series D funding, the app also has its sights set on the wellness tourism market.

On August 29, ClassPass will unveil its first Getaways trip. Getaways are retreat-type breaks which bring together spa treatments and vegetable-heavy meals with the boutique workouts the company is known for. All trips are in convenient locations and bookable with ClassPass credits.

“At ClassPass we aim to provide stepping stones toward an active and inspired lifestyle, and ClassPass Getaways will do just that,” founder Payal Kadakia said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to give members the opportunity to take a mini-escape from their day-to-day to try new things and explore unfamiliar places. It’s our hope that attendees will leave feeling energized and empowered to continue living life to their absolute fullest.”

From wellness cruises to spiritual journeys, trips that help maintain, evolve or revamp traveler wellbeing have surged in popularity over the last several years. According to the Global Wellness Institute’s 2017 Global Wellness Economy Monitor, the wellness tourism industry is worth over $500 billion, growing at twice the rate of tourism itself.

Getaways is making wellness vacations like these ultra accessible for ClassPass members. Book via the app using your credits and you could be en route to a luxurious location for a day of self-care as soon as tomorrow.
