Aerial fitness (including pole, hammocks and aerial hoop) provides a fun, challenging workout. Not only does it allow you to learn new skills, it has tons of health benefits, both physical and mental.
Sometimes people think that if they don’t have much upper body strength, then aerial is definitely not for them. This is just not true! Aerial is fantastic at helping to improve muscle strength for anyone, especially in the upper body and core. Consistently coming to class week after week, you are likely to notice a change overtime. If you stick with it, those beginning aerial moves that once seemed so hard will one day seem super easy.
Exercise is a great way to reduce stress. It helps to release tension, improve your sleep, and elevate your mood. Not to mention, it’s hard to be stressed when you are having fun.
Dancing through the moves, whether freestyle or choreographed, allows you to express yourself creatively and work on your artistic skills. Putting together sequences allows for endless combinations of moves to which each individual can add their own flair.
Practicing aerial tricks will help increase your body awareness and balance. You’ll get a better understanding of how your body moves and what you are capable of. Plus, all of that strength you are building will help you to have greater control of your movements.

Last, but definitely not least, aerial will help to increase your confidence in yourself. Every time you come to class, you are challenging yourself to try something new. Maybe it’s a new trick or a new way of moving that is completely outside of your comfort zone. When you look back and see how far you’ve come in your aerial journey, you’ll be proud of yourself and of all of the amazing things you have done.
