HPI Team


Our team is made up of fitness professionals, certified sports performance coaches, pilates instructors, licensed massage therapists and acupuncturists. Our passion is helping you move, feel, and perform better! The IBJI Health Performance Institute is a fitness facility specializing in sports performance, personal training, adult boot camps, post-therapy exercise, and wellness services. Seeing a gap between medicine and performance, the Health Performance Institute (HPI), which is a division of IBJI, was created to provide a collaborative approach to sports medicine, health, and fitness. HPI opened its doors on November 2011 and has experienced steady growth servicing athletes, adults and active agers all throughout the Chicago North shore. From post-physical therapy training to high-level sports performance HPI exists to create a bridge between medicine and optimal fitness for all of its clients.
