About Us

Over 25 years ago we opened our gym doors to our first class of 35 students and today more than 1500 students come through our two gym locations each week. We started inspiring kids to be fit & active through gymnastics and today we offer a wide variety of competitive and recreational programming including: gymnastics, cheerleading, tumbling, and martial arts. Additionally we’ve become a destination for birthday parties, open gyms, and special events.

Our founder and co-owner Chris Deck launched Flying High as part of her dream to bring fitness & fun to children all across Chicagoland and her vision continues to be realized with the help of co-owner, Laura Meyer, and a crew of 100+ employees who share their dedication.

Even though we’ve expanded to two locations we haven’t lost our family feel as many of our 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 we’re surrounded by.

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.

Staff members are 1st Aid and CPR certified. Our competitive gymnastics coaches are USAG certified and our competitive cheer coaches are USASF certified.
