You don't have to be a circus performer to glide through the air with the greatest of ease, and get a great workout at the same time. In today's Health Minute, Holly Firfer tells us more about a new high-flying fitness trend. It's a combination of dance and strength training while hanging in the air. It's called Aerial Fitness. "It takes you back to childhood time where you're exploring swinging," says Amber Monson, a Sky Gym Instructor. "You feel weightless a lot of the times and that's something adults don't get to do very much." Participants hang from long fabrics called silks, but don't worry, just like anything else, you don't start at the top. "We start you very low, get you really comfortable and confident in what you're doing from the very beginning," says Monson. "Then we slowly move you up." The slow progression also gives people time to build up the strength, flexibility and endurance to do this. "The hardest part has definitely been like the upper arm strength," says Haley Anderson, an Aerial Fitness participant. But the core gets a workout as well, building strength in the stomach and back muscles. "I just love how my body feels," says Dana Dragonduck, an Aerial Fitness participant. "It's a gentle resistant. It's a different pull than what you get in the weight room." "I like being up in the air," says Anderson. "I like being able to move freely." If you are looking for something out of the ordinary and aren't afraid to fly, try hanging from the silks.
