Circus Arts

     In Janurary of 2014, I decided to take a trapeze class and it totally changed my life. Prior to taking this class I had basically zero experience working out. Lifting the milk jug out of the fridge was a struggle. I knew this class was going to be tough.....but wow. In my first class we learned how to properly hang from the trapeze bar and a few other basic hangs. I have never been so sore in my life. For the next three days, I felt like I got hit by a bus. Normally I would have been like “This is way too hard. I’m too lazy for this. I’m not going back.” but something about it made me want to come back the following week. At this next class we worked on things we learned in the previous class and also added in a few more tricks that were slightly more challenging. I was pleasantly surprised that I wasn’t struggling as much as I was the week before. As the weeks went on, I continued to progress. There’s just something about learning new tricks and perfecting them that is so addicting. A few months after starting trapeze, I decided to try lyra (also known as aerial hoop). I am now obsessed with training on both these apparatuses. Since starting, I have became so much stronger than I ever imagined I could become. In addition to that, I have noticed that I am more energized and motivated. The rush you get from doing aerial arts is just incredible. I strongly encourage everyone to give it a chance. My classes were filled with people of all ages, shapes, and sizes. It’s a fun way to work out and no prior experience in anything is needed. The internet is full of resources for you to find a circus or aerial art school near you.
