Intended for new students, Aerial Conditioning: Level 1 is an endurance and strength-building class that targets core, arm, and leg strength, while developing cardiovascular and muscular endurance. This 90-minute class mixes ground conditioning with stretching and apparatus training to work the entire body, build up a sweat, and tone muscles for maximum strength and control. Students will work singly and in partnership on apparatus such as Static Trapeze, Rope, and Wall Rack to develop confidence in their own strength and coordination. Aerial Conditioning: Level 1 is a drop-in class, which can be started at any time by people of any age and fitness level.
