Aerial Dance has given me the strength both mentally and physically to do things I never would have imagined. I can walk into the studio with my head held high. I can walk into a studio full of beautiful, strong women, some I have never met but still greet me with a smile and a “how’s it going”. I truly enjoy how everyone is always so uplifting towards each other. They’re always cheering each other on when someone nails a new trick or a trick we have all been working hard to nail.
From my first class on the many different empowering women at Aerial have helped me conquer my fears of judgment. I always used to be afraid of joining a gym or fitness center. It had been so long since I was in shape or even knew how to properly work out. I was so scared of not being accepted or looking bad when trying to do thing that I would always back out.
I never had that negative, judgmental, pressure going to Aerial. I have always been welcomed with open arms. I am praised for my successes no mater how small they may have been and always pushed and cheered on to do more. It’s a comforting feeling not having to worry about a thing when I walk into a studio.
My first class I had such an amazing instructor. I was exhausted, sore, kissed by the hoop as we say, but the next day I woke up feeling on top of the world. Like I had just accomplished the goal of a life time. I got through a 50min intense workout.
I was so impressed with myself. Not just because I made it through the full class, but because I had lifted my full body weight off the ground and into a hoop multiple times. I had never done anything like it and this was the first workout I had done on purpose since having my son. I felt like a super mom!
I now look forward to every class and learning the next cool trick. I have struggled for years trying to find what I always thought was impossible, but I found it at Aerial! The love, encouragement, strength, and patience these beautiful women show everyday is a total breath of fresh air. I 1000x over recommend anyone and everyone to try a class. Break from the norm of working out and try it out you will not be disappointed!
