About ENRGi and Our Facilities
How is ENRGi different from other gyms and fitness places?
ENRGi is more than just a swipe-your-card gym. We focus on our members’ needs and wants, form relationships with all members, and value feedback immensely. Feedback is the key ingredient to our success. ENRGi Instructors give multiple levels for each exercise to meet your fitness goals. Just show up and our amazing team will wow you! Hands down the best Group Fitness Studio in Chicago!
What if I have not worked out in a year and am not in shape?
Join us anyway! Most of our classes are designed for ALL fitness levels. We give options for beginners to advanced levels in our classes. We encourage you to come, even if you have never worked out before. IMPORTANT: Please let your instructor or coach know when you arrive at the front desk if you have an injury or condition that needs special modifications.
Do I have to work out for a full hour?
That is completely up to you. You can work out for 30 minutes or a full hour. If we are not busy, you can stay as long as you’d like, though we do not recommend working out for more than 90 minutes. Even though we have options to keep you moving all day long, we do not want you to overexert yourself.
Are all of your instructors certified in their field of expertise?
OF COURSE AND MOST DEFINITELY! ALL of our team members are certified and/or licensed as personal trainers, fitness instructors, yoga instructors and/or specialty formats. Click HERE to read a bio about each staff member. You can also check us out on Yelp – we have amazing reviews!

Monday-Friday after 5pm and Saturday during our operational hours you can park at the lot across the street at Ohio and Franklin for a flat rate of $5 CASH ONLY. It is easiest to access this lot on the Franklin side. When you receive your ticket, just bring it with you to the ENRGi front desk to get validated and you’ll pay only $5 upon exiting the lot. If you’re there right at 5pm, you may have to block someone in and leave your keys with the parking attendant. After 5:30 it is easy in, easy out. Sunday during our operational hours you can park at the lot at Erie and Wells (2 blocks north of ENRGi, next to our old building) for 2 hours for $5.

All other times there is street parking, which is free before 8am and metered after that.

We have many small lockers for storage in the locker rooms, as well as new, large lockers for larger items in the common area.

Do you have month-to-month memberships?
Yes, we understand that not everyone can commit to a full year, so we do have monthly memberships with a minimum commitment of only two months. However, please be aware that this membership is still set up to autopay, so if you’d like to stop your membership, please notify us in writing at least 7 days before your next payment is due to provide time for processing.
I need a membership that will hold me accountable to workout. Do you have a membership for accountability?
YES!!! Our Workout Challenge is your answer! It is the most affordable membership we offer BUT you must workout 16 visits/month OR you will be charged for each “undervisit”. Therefore, this membership can be either your best friend or worst enemy.
If I am going on vacation or there is a reason I need to postpone my workout are there any options to put my membership on hold?
Yes, we understand that life happens so we offer a one-month minimum and a two-month maximum (in total) freeze to your membership when necessary for a small hold fee. Just be sure to notify us at least 48 hours in advance so we can get the freeze into effect on the correct dates. You cannot freeze the Workout Challenge Membership.
Once I’m a member, is there a way I can bring my friends for free?
Yes! Once you’re a member, you’ll be eligible for one “newbie pass” per month! If you have a friend, family member or co-worker who has never been here before, just purchase a “newbie pass” from your online account (it will cost you $0) and then email us at email@example.com to let us know the name of the friend who would like to use it.
