About ENRGi and Our Facilities
How is ENRGi different from other gyms and fitness studios?
ENRGi offers fitness & recovery based programming for all levels of fitness. The ENRGi experience encompasses balance and our motto is workout. recover. repeat. Our fitness variety includes over 100 classes/week including circuit, strength, boxing, barre, rowing, yoga, recovery, small group and more. Our RECOVERi Club, featuring NormaTec Recovery Technology, is just like your very own personal & on-call massage therapist! NormaTec technology will help you recover faster between workouts by reducing muscle soreness and improving circulation. Our rule of thumb for optimal health & fitness is to recover as frequently as you workout.
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: If you have an injury or condition that needs special modifications, please arrive early and let your instructor know before class begins.
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!

How early do I need to arrive before a class?
Please arrive at least 5 minutes beforehand. If you are dropping in for a class for the first time, please arrive 10 minutes prior to your class.
What happens if I am added to a waitlist?
- If you are added to a waitlist, you will receive an email that you got into class IF you are opted-IN to our email system. If you are not receiving these emails, you can opt-IN under your account. Otherwise you can call or email us.
- If you do not get into class, you will not be notified.
- Our system will add people into class up to 2 hours before class starts, including early morning classes.
- If 2 hours is not enough time for you, we highly recommend you log into your account and remove yourself from the waitlist to avoid late cancel or no show fees (see below).
- Our waitlists are locked 2 hours before classes begin. If you are still on a waitlist less than 2 hours before class, there may be room for you if others late cancel. Simply give us a call at (312) 846-6989 and if there’s room, we will add you to class. Remember, once you’re added, late cancel and no show fees apply (see below).
- If your not added to class from a waitlist but you’re flexible with your workout, just show up. Since we have 4 studios, we often have several classes to choose from. It’s likely we will have room in one of our classes, especially weekday evenings after 530PM and weekends.
What is the class cancellation policy?
To most efficiently manage capacities and make sure clients can get into their favorite classes, we strictly enforce a Late Cancel & No Show Policy:
- Early Cancel: An Early Cancel is any cancellation that occurs more than 2 hours prior to the start of your class. There is no charge for an Early Cancel.
- Late Cancel: A Late Cancel is any cancellation that occurs less than 2 hours prior to the start of your class. If you Late Cancel, you will be charged $5. This applies to unlimited packages, unlimited memberships and workout challenge memberships. All drop-ins and drop-in memberships will lose one class per Late Cancel in lieu of being charged. Canceling can easily be done online under your account information or in our ENRGi app. **If you are signed up for multiple classes, show up for one and cancel another, you will not be charged a Late Cancel fee as long as you notify the front desk at check-in.
- No Show: A No Show occurs if you do not cancel AND do not show up for your scheduled class. If you No Show, you will be charged $10. This applies to unlimited packages, unlimited memberships and workout challenge memberships. All drop-ins and drop-in memberships will lose one class per No Show in lieu of being charged. Canceling can easily be done online under your account information or in our ENRGi app.

Do I need to make a reservation for class(es)?
Yes! We have options all day long to work out, but we want to make sure we do not book our classes over capacity. We STRONGLY encourage you to make a reservation beforehand to make sure you can attend your preferred class(es). You CAN just show up, but if we are full then you will be unable to work out.
How do I make a reservation for class(es)?
To register and reserve your space for a class, simply go to our website, www.enrgifitness.com, click Reservations, and reserve a space for the time and class or program of your choice. At this point you will be prompted to create a username, password, and profile. Once you click “Make a Reservation,” click “Sign Up”. If you are a member, you will be signed into the class. If you do not have a membership or series, you will be prompted to make a payment. An email confirmation and reminder will be sent to you before your scheduled reservation. We also have an app available on both iphone and android!
How early in advance can I make a reservation for class(es)?
Reservations open at 6AM, 7 days in advance.
Can I just come workout on my own?
