Aerial Fit


this is what I was talking about
Loving Aerial Fit! Can’t believe this old n broken body can almost strike a pose!
Thank you for such a wonderful time!!! We had a ball and y'all were magnificent!!!
Heads up!!!
Happy 4th birthday to the Circus Building! I learned so much on the 13' ceilings of Masters Studio, but my world opened up when that height was doubled 4 years ago! Wheeeeee!
To my awesome aerial friends: I'm so sad, but unfortunately I won't be able to come back to training until Sept 7th 😞. I'm going to be working on the road SO MUCH the next couple months I just won't be able to get back until then. I'm sad to know that I will fall behind in my aerial goals, but it just isn't possible. I'll be all over the country, and also going to China. I'll miss everyone so much! Hope you all have a fantastic summer that I can't wait to hear about!!!

We are so excited to launch our Windmill Hip Key Master Course! We’ve been developing this course & others like it for the past two years & we’re finally ready to present it to you. Visiting teachers to our studio have always remarked on how strong our students are with their aerial fundamentals 💪 & this course is a distillation of the most effective drills we’ve trained our students in since 2009. It includes both training & teaching tips, for those who are learners & those who teach others. 🎓 We’re excited about this virtual format so we can get the info to those of you we can’t see in person, or to anyone who wants more training tools & another way to learn and master your aerial skills.

With the right tools, an effortless looking Windmill Hip Key is possible for anyone who trains smart. We designed our course to give you the tools you need to make your training time productive & engaging. Windmill Hip Key is both fundamental (it leads to a lot of other skills), & incredibly challenging to master (because it takes so much strength & body awareness to achieve.)

Our course is self-paced, & includes drills you can do at home without aerial equipment, & with an aerial set-up. All of the aerial drills in this course can be trained near the ground or just one step off the ground, so height is not required.

This course includes video assessments so you’re not going it alone. Students working toward their windmill hip key, & coaches looking for new tools to help their students, will get the most benefit from this course. We’re aerial nerds who love breaking skills down, & over the years we’ve trained a variety of students & body types, from recreational to pro-track & from couch potato to athletic. We’re so excited to bring our wealth of experience to an online format where we can help you master the skills of your dreams!

Use WINDMILLHIPKEYMASTER coupon code to get 30% off by purchasing the course before it goes live on July 1!

Use your dismount to build strength and control.

As aerial studios begin to reopen and we ease back into aerial training, remember that every time you come off the apparatus is an opportunity to build strength and control. Don’t throw away your dismount! Never let gravity take control or lazily thunk your feet down to the floor.

Imagine there are little 🐶puppies or 🐱kittens on the mat underneath you and don’t crush them as you come down!

Every time you get off your apparatus always come back to the floor slowly, quietly, and softly.

💪This is just one of the habits we cover in our ‘Best Training Habits of Successful Aerialists’ FREE e-course!

This mini course covers the top 5 training habits we instill in our students, right from day 1, that we’ve seen help them master tough aerial skills as their practice develops.

Each habit is simple for any level to implement consistently. We challenge you to see how many you can make part of your practice as you return to in person training after a long break.

We’re open for private lessons for members only! COVID-19 precautions are at the front of our mind, so we’re limiting our offerings right now to things that can be done while maintaining social distance (no skills that need spotting for now), no shared apparatuses or props, new warm up mats that can be sanitized between each use, and hard apparatuses are now sanitized after each use while soft apparatuses get rested for a minimum of 3 days between each use.

Our schedule is limited so we have lots of time for airing out the studio and keeping up with our enhanced cleaning protocols.

Staying healthy right now is a community effort so remember that if you’ve had any possible exposures or symptoms, you will need to wait to come back so you don’t put anyone else at risk.

We’re easing everyone back in by rebuilding aerial strength from the ground up.

Whenever you’re ready to come back just contact us to sign up! All memberships and class cards remain on hold until we get back closer to normal.

And our online classes continue as usual. We hope to see you there!

Congratulations to Josey for being accepted into the San Diego Circus Center’s Emerging Professionals program! Josey started as a beginner with us 3 1/2 years ago and immediately fell in love with aerial. She started performing with us in 2018 and we’re so excited she’s decided to take her journey even further. We love seeing all of her hard work and dedication pay off.

We’ll certainly miss her in classes and performances here, but we’re so excited for her next adventure. Cirque du Soleil here she comes! @josey_wetzel_circus

Our Story - Make the Impossible Possible

Everything we do in our circus school follows our culture of Safety, Smiles, Strengthening and Skills. We are going to keep you safe, while you are having fun building the strength to do jaw dropping, amazing skills that will knock the socks off your friends.

The warm glow of pure joy.

How can we not have fun? It’s the circus! We are swinging from the ceiling, flipping through the air, and spending time upside down. You don’t need to be strong enough to do a pull up to have fun. Even after your first class you’ll be smiling and wanting to show friends photos of what you learned.

Stand up straight confidence.

There is nothing more empowering than doing what was once impossible. We train those who are just curious to try something new, fitness freaks who want dynamic functional strength, and those who want to develop into edge-of-the-seat, thrilling performers. All of our students are pushed to try what at first will seem impossible to them and in short order will be just the first step to the next enticing challenge.

Choose your own path.

Join the circus without walking away from everything. We have a full schedule of aerial and ground circus classes. We offer beginner and upper level classes in Aerial Silks, Static Trapeze, Aerial Hoop, Aerial Yoga, Hand Balancing and Acrobalance (Acro Yoga). Take a drop-in class or purchase a membership. Dive deeper with workshops and private instruction. You and your friends can be your own circus with Group Lessons.

Now you can do it.
