TeamiFit's River North headquarters hosts more than 175 high-intensity workout sessions each week. In August, the fitness center's body blasters will infuse their meaty schedule of fitness and circuit-training options with low-impact, high-efficacy rowing sessions, seamlessly blending into a well-balanced fitness regimen like the unknown fez-wearing man in the background of most wedding photos. Landlubbing group fitness classes this fall include the high-intensity hybrid Tabata Kickboxing, which orders limbs into double jabs and roundhouse kicks in four-minute drills, and retro-flavored Throwback Dance & Sculpt, where exercisers can dig out their scrunchies and headbands to cardio-dance and tone to the songs of the '80s and early '90s, though attendees are advised to leave 1989's goldfish-filled-parachute-pants fad behind.
A TeamiFit coach oversees self-directed circuit-training sessions to demonstrate basic moves, answer any questions about the equipment or the personal life of Richard Simmons, and aid in acquiring proper form. Navigate the 15-stop full-body circuit once or twice throughout your training session, boosting cardiovascular and strength endurance, and join the coach for a targeted exercise blast afterward if you so choose. Learn the ins, outs, backs, and forths of paddle-handling with trainer-aided rowing circuits, and put your newfound experience to use in the wholly self-guided open-rowing sessions, recommended for those with some prior rowing experience. After browsing the bevy of options, simply reserve a spot online before each session you'd like to attend.

After making use of the multi-room workout center, guests can stimulate increased muscle recovery with compression technology in the recover room, truly living up to the ENRGi Fitness to "work out, recover, and repeat." The award-wining studio has even been honored by an array of esteemed media outlets like TimeOut Chicago and NBC 5.
