Want to get really strong while maintaining balance in your body and improving your functional mobility for circus?
Let me help.
The Get Circus Strong Online Coaching program is designed to build the three qualities every circus artist/athlete needs: mobility, stability and strength.
With your goals and your body in mind, I will put together a plan that not only helps you to get strong, but will help to keep your body resilient.
And, if you keep at it, you’ll stay circus strong for life.
I recommend this for any aerialist looking to cross train and improve overall strength and flexibility.
This program is better than many classes and trainers I’ve found locally so it really is a great resource to take advantage of.Hayley, Get Circus Strong trainee
This is about the long game.
If you are a circus artist—whether at the recreational level or at the professional level—you are also an athlete. Or at least you should consider yourself one: circus demands much of our bodies.
The goal here is to prepare your body for a long and healthy life of circus.
This is where strength and conditioning comes into play.
Your strength and conditioning work shouldn’t injure you…
…now or in the future. If anything, it should make your body stronger, better aligned, resilient and less likely to be injured. It provides an opportunity to develop better mobility, stability and bodily control—all of which will help you to get more out of your circus training.
I love how I can feel my core and my rear are working so much and I feel it’s stronger.
My front split are getting back to my pre-injury flexibility and the left hamstring occasional pain is miraculously gone.
I am very happy with the program and can see a huge difference 🙂Satita, Get Circus Strong trainee
Because we’re playing the long game, that means it might be a good idea to go a bit slower now so that you can go faster later. It might mean backing off from certain movements in order to shore up any weak areas or muscle imbalances so that we don’t just reinforce a dysfunctional movement pattern.
That’s why we begin with a full-body movement screen and assessment: it will reveal any faulty movement patterns, flexibility limitations or muscle imbalances that might otherwise cause you problems down the road. And then we build a plan for addressing these into your workouts.
Your circus training shouldn’t injure you, either.
There are, of course, instances where injuries will happen. The sudden, traumatic kind. But it seems that more often than not, the injuries that do happen are a result of overuse. Your strength and conditioning work should make your circus training more about skill development and less about having the energy to make it through a class.
Features and Benefits
Expert CoachingWith a training plan that’s custom-designed for you, weekly check-ins and Skype coaching, we’ll work together to keep you on track and focused on achieving your goals.
Train on your own scheduleDo your workouts whenever they fit into your schedule. All you need is your smartphone to access the app where you’ll find your customized workout plan with written instructions and reference videos for every exercise.
Cost-effectiveOnline coaching is much more cost effective than training in-person. Having a trainer in-person would easily run you $700-$1,000+ a month. That’s because you’re not only paying for the trainer but you’re also paying significant gym overhead costs. (Why pay for management, equipment, property taxes, electricity, etc. if you don’t have to?).
Built-in AccountabilityAs you train, fill in your work within the App as you go. I can monitor your progress in real-time, but more importantly, your results will be automatically reported and charted for me. This makes it possible for me to adjust the program on the fly ensuring no wasted workouts so that you get the most out of every workout.

The Long Game
The core of what I’m aiming to do here is to teach you good form and exercise technique and to give you an understanding of how to progress your strength and conditioning training over time.I’ve held many job titles over the years: teacher, personal trainer, strength coach, flying trapeze instructor, instructor-trainer. The one constant in all of them has been—and continues to be—that I am a teacher at heart. The core of what I’m aiming to do here is to teach you good form and exercise technique and to give you an understanding of how to progress your strength and conditioning training over time. You are welcome to train with me for as long as you like, but I am operating under the assumption that it won’t be forever. One day, you’ll go out on your own and I want to make sure you’re as well equipped and well prepared as possible so that you will have the knowledge and skills to continue to train safely and effectively.
