Calisthenics and Body Weight training are two buzz words often found in the fitness industry at the moment. Both highly successful methods of strength and conditioning training, without the use of weights, easy to start but incredibly difficult to master. 

But what about aerial skills and training methods derived from gymnastics and acrobatics? Gymnasts are surely some of the most talented strength athletes around, for one, there are multiple Olympic disciplines dedicated to it. And what happened to acrobats? Suspended gracefully in the air at a great height, making standard calisthenics suddenly look very tame…

We would like to introduce you to Michaela Finnan, of “Falkor Aerial Fitness”.
