FitChicago classes are free of charge to all undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students. Other members of the Ratner Athletics Center may take classes by purchasing a FitChicago Punch Card at the entry station.

Non-students will have their card punched by the instructor on-site before each class session. Students must show their UChicago ID to the instructor before each class. Fitness Punch Cards may be used for any class offered through the FitChicago Program, except for Private Swim Lessons, and have no expiration date. No refunds are possible.

Fitness center orientation sessions are offered on a regular basis for no charge to current members of Ratner and Henry Crown. These one-hour sessions offered each quarter cover the safe and effective use of the fitness equipment and machines.

Personal fitness training services are also available. A certified personal trainer will help clients achieve their fitness goals by evaluating their current fitness levels and designing comprehensive exercise programs to meet their needs. Fitness assessments, one-on-one sessions, small group instruction, and mini-classes are available.
