Circus Arts is becoming a new fad in the fitness world – It is a new, unusual, and fun way to get in shape and stay in shape. I call my adult fitness classes "Circus Arts Fitness".
The combination of the circus arts and fitness works so well because to be an aerialist, one has to have a very strong core as well as unusually strong upper and lower body muscles. Gaining this muscle strength through a Circus Arts Fitness regimen is unique in that aerialists are lifting their own body weight or another person's body - much more interesting than dumbbells! Not only does Circus Arts Fitness increase strength, it also improves flexibility, coordination, and balance.
My Circus Arts Fitness classes offer low trapeze, rope climbing with tricks, circus rings, circus silks, tightwire walking, juggling, partner acrobatics, and more. All students follow a "skills sheet" and learn new tricks each week. It is a very unique and fun way to work out….you are busy learning new tricks, all the while holding your body in space and turning it upside down, no less!!
Finally, I have to mention, especially since I am also a therapist, that Circus Arts is also a self-esteem building experience. The feeling of personal achievement that comes with learning a new trick and the experience of group success that comes with learning a new group stunt leaves my students with an overall "I THINK I CAN" feeling after every class
Circus Arts Fitness is literally a fantastic 'pick me up' workout!
