Strength Boxing and Full Bodywork Stretching with Amy at Enrgi Fitness

What a great studio with friendly and motivational instructors. I took Amy’s class and you can tell she cares about her students and makes an effort to make everyone feel special. She will just kick your ass and you will like it.  Actually, love it.  Not only is her class fun, she’s an inspiration – she works out the whole class herself!  While smiling and encouraging everyone to do their personal best. I would definitely go back, and recommend checking it out if you’re in the neighborhood.

ENRGi Fitness 676 N. LaSalle Blvd, Chicago, IL 60654

The first class I took was Strength boxing. After 70 minutes spent in high octane, cardio kickboxing using 2 lb dumbbell weights and 1/2 lb wrist cuffs , I spent the next day sore in all the right places. We quickly learned the basics—kicks and punches—and then put it all together into cardio-building combinations. A combination of Amy’s personally mixed music and high energy made the time fly by. And while the combinations were enough to raise anyone’s heart rate, the addition of small spurts of cardio and calisthenics made the workout feel like a complete-body workout. After a few minutes, I was already sweating and supercharging my endurance with this  “knock out” workout!! Modifications were given for each exercise, so all levels were able to take the class.

My body was shot, but Amy suggested checking out the 30 minute full bodywork stretching class in the brand new Zen Studio. I walked out of there feeling like I just got a 30 minute massage. Amy lead you through numerous stretching techniques that helped relax my body. She used a foam roller and massage stick. My muscles felt warm and tingly like I could actually feel the blood moving through them. A definite must after an intense workout.
