What You'll Get
With today’s Groupon, $69 gets you seven days of consecutive classes at Qi Athletic Clubs and Spin-Yoga Studios, and 20 visits with complete access to any of the three Qi locations: City Park Athletic Club & Kenesis Studio, the downtown Athletic Club and Spin-Yoga Studio, and Qi Yoga Studio, where your dreams of becoming stretchy become reality and your nightmares of not being stretchy melt away.
Each Qi location is different, like fitness snowflakes falling during a yoga winter. A loft-like atmosphere with homey accents (plants, airy curtains, colorful walls) invites extended sweat sessions at the Athletic Club & Kinesis Studio location. Located in City Park, the gym features state-of-art cardio, with new machines such as the interactive Expresso stationary bike, resistance and free-weight equipment, Easy Line machines for exercise novices, and group classes seven days a week.
Swing by Qi’s downtown location and take advantage of 9,500 square feet of space, plus a spin and yoga studio. Here, you can cycle or stretch at the gym’s daily classes. Qi’s additional yoga studio’s minimalistic décor, accented with Zen-like touches, is prime for stretchers of all skill levels. From restorative to fusion, yoga classes are available seven days a week at a variety of times.
Opt to hit the gym daily and stun revelers at your holiday gatherings with your new slim silhouette, which looks eerily similar to a young Loretta Swit. Or, get this Groupon to make good on your resolutions to get this Groupon. The seven consecutive days of unlimited classes (starting after your first group session) allow you to experiment with a variety of routines (many yoga flavors, CrossFit, kinesis training) to discover what will work best for you on your journey to superfit. Free parking makes it easy for anyone to get there, especially people with cars, mopeds, or riding horses.
- I am by no means a member of the fitness elite and yet at Qi everyone was incredibly welcoming and there to help me get into shape. – JasmineTerr, Citysearch
- Qi has these incredible Easyline machines that are great at helping me work towards more resistance training. They also have equipment that is challenging enough for my husband to get a good workout as well. – StephLinds, Citysearch
- With encouragement, prodding and a positive attitude, the people at Qi really helped push me when I was content to let go of my dream. – BenjaminTah, Citysearch
Poetry of the Body
In addition to being great for you physically and mentally, yoga is also an art of self-expression paralleled only, perhaps, by the limerick. The real magic, however, happens when the arts of yoga and limerick come together:
There once was a flexible gal,
Whose yogic skills never did fail,
When forgetting her keys,
She just pulled in her knees,
And squeezed through the slot for the mail.
Genevieve’s yogic technique,
Was in serious need of critique,
But her clumsy half-lotus,
Made classmates take notice,
And to her, they chose not to speak.
There was an old Yogi of note,
Who was heard to have said, and I quote,
“It is better to bend,
In the presence of friends,
Barring friends, one could use a small goat.”

The owners of Qi pool their experience to design innovative, unique exercise classes. Leading a staff of personal trainers and experienced instructors, the club maintains meditative training studios where yoga and cycling fuse in courses such as QiCycle-Yoga, and Qi Ryders, which uses RealRyder bikes.
The resulting roster of classes have earned Qi a second- and third-place spot on 5280's 2011 readers’ choice awards for Health Club/Gym and Yoga respectively. Such classes include Qi Yoga, a unique focus on core energy and muscular strength, and QiCycle-KORE, a cycling program blended with a bootcamp workout. The commitment to healthy living extends beyond the gym, with community programs, such as the free running club, a group that meets regularly to jog through City Park, Congress Park, and local Thanksgiving dinners.
