Amazing place! They have something for everyone from golf simulators to aerial yoga. Been coming here for some time now and just can’t believe the transformation. Nicely done guys! Will keep coming back. Jamie, the yoga trainer, ROCKS!
Yes, Yes, Yes – a serious approach to fitness & advanced athletic training, for professional athletes, student athletes, and for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to take their workouts to the next level. The quality and variety of the Sky Fitness equipment is unsurpassed. They keep the spacious facility spotless at all times and in perfect working order. Knowledgeable, friendly staff – a pleasure! Elaborate class schedule – definitely! If you want the gym-club scene typical of Chicagoland facilities, don’t join SKY Fitness. If you want a truly superior level of athletic or fitness training at a world-class gym, this is your dream come true. Try it out ONCE, you’ll be hooked – Ask for LARRY… tell him Top Dawg sent you : )
I have been in fitness centers and clubs all over the country (including East Bank, Bannockburn, country clubs, cruise ships, you name them), but Sky Fitness has them all beat. The manager Larry takes a personal interest in the members and the facility. There are machines there you will only find in the weight rooms of a pro-sports team. They also have a climbing wall, basketball court, and indoor track. Clean locker room with full size lockers. Not the small half lockers that you need two or more! They just added a brand new dry sauna and steam with a huge lounge area with a large flat screen. Very nice and compliments to the management. Staff is friendly from checking you in to if you have a question using a machine. A bright clean locker room is a must for me and they meet all my expectations. With plenty of towels!
5 STARS! So happy I found Sky Fitness. They have something for every fitness level and will help you achieve your goals too. The MoveStrong Functional Fitness classes are awesome because the trainers really know their stuff. I started back in November, and I have been able to try at least 9 different classes. I have been impressed with the trainers in each one. From yoga to boot camp, these trainers are knowledgeable, friendly, caring, and really seem to enjoy what they do. They also have some of the best toys/equipment to get your sweat on!
I’ve worked out at the club for many years. Now with all the amazing new equipment, and the overall facility makeover, this place rocks! The staff is impressive and the club manager, Larry Heller, gets major props for what he’s done to make this club one of the best in the North Shore if not the City!
Great yoga studios! If you like Hot Yoga, this is the place!
The value is so good I can’t reasonably go anywhere else. I first checked out Sky Fitness in December of 2014. Being an avid lifter, college student, and being in the Navy, I needed some place to train back home that would offer me the flexibility I needed while constantly moving around. First impression was how immaculate the facilities are: everything is remarkably clean from the locker room to the machines, weights, and pool area. This has to be the most thoroughly-equipped gym I’ve ever been to. The place has everything you would want or need for all types of training.
However the biggest factor for me when choosing Sky Fitness was the price point. For students, it can’t be beat, with regular specials during breaks that other similar gyms in the area (XSport, World Gym, LA Fitness, etc.) can’t come close to. Regular rates are similarly convenient and frugal. The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. By my third visit, the ladies behind the front desk would welcome me by name. Asking anyone for help so far, whether it be lifting advice or just asking where I could get something, has been on point.
Final Word: this isn’t a dingy old school gym full of bodybuilders or a flashy, loud place where you constantly feel judged. At the same time this isn’t Planet Fitness; you can actually lift and get in shape here. I personally spend most of my time powerlifting or doing bodybuilding-type training. Whether you’re a serious lifter, a shy newcomer to fitness, or just looking for a variety of ways and classes to get started with, I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else around Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, or Arlington Heights besides Sky Fitness. 5.0 star rating 5/21/2015.
After being a member of another gym for over two years, I was ready for a change. Sky fits the bill. It’s clean, not too noisy, has lots of different group classes for every fitness level and top of the line equipment. They offer yoga, functional fitness, spin, Pilates, water aerobics, swimming, and tons of other group classes. The staff has been wonderful and helpful. Larry, the director, is always willing to answer questions and help when he can. This is the best hidden gem in Buffalo Grove. If you don’t come and check it out, you’re doing yourself a disservice.
All the improvements I hoped they’d make, they did and beyond! What an incredible facility it has turned out to be. The owners and the staff are probably the best I’ve dealt with when it comes to meeting my needs. Don’t walk… RUN to join sky fitness!!
