So, you want to get crazy strong and bulletproof your body so you can do more with circus than you ever thought possible?
Are you ready to…
- improve your pull-up strength?
- finally master that straight-legged inversion?
- develop active flexibility (which is really mobility)?
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.
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.
Anyone can put together a series of challenging exercises that will make you strong.
Get Circus Strong is designed to build the three qualities every circus artist/athlete needs: mobility, stability and strength. I will put together a plan that not only makes your body strong, but will help to keep your body resilient and strong. And, if you keep at it, you’ll Get Circus Strong for life.
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.
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.
