Over 25 years ago, we opened our gym doors to our first class of 35 gymnasts and today more than 1,500 students come through Flying High each week. We started with inspiring kids to be fit and active through gymnastics, and today we offer a wide variety of competitive and recreational programming including: gymnastics, cheerleading, tumbling, ninja zone, and martial arts. We’ve also become a destination for birthday parties, open gyms, camps, and special events.
Our founder and co-owner Chris Deck launched Flying High as part of her dream to bring fitness and fun to children all across Chicagoland. Her vision continues to be realized with the help of co-owner Laura Newman, and 100+ employees who share their dedication.
Even though we’ve grown exponentially since first opening our doors, we haven’t lost our family feel! Many of our current parents were some of the original students of Flying High, and they continue the tradition by bringing their children to be a part of our Flying High family. We’re so thankful to so many of our families who recommended us to their friends, family, and neighbors, making Flying High an extension of the schools and communities in the area.
We believe in creating individual experiences that are meaningful to every child we teach or every child who comes to our gym for a day of play. Our philosophy “Where Every Child is a Star” is practiced in every class as we truly believe that every child deserves to be celebrated for their unique individuality. We are committed to offering programs where every child can feel good about themselves and their accomplishments, regardless of their ability level.
