ENRGi was founded in April 2009 originally under the name TEAMiFIT. Our programs began as outdoor boot camps at numerous parks around Chicago. Our founder, Amy Leelaunched TEAMiFIT with the intention of it being a spring/summer seasonal business to supplement with being a full-time elementary school teacher. After running our first online deal, we went from 20 to 500 clients overnight and Amy was forced to quit her teaching job. See our story unfold below.
