Weight Management

Even though these activities may seem effortless and graceful, the physical effort applied to aerial acrobatics is massive. These routines are great for toning the muscles and for allowing a large amount of energy to be released. While taking part in one of these activities, one can expect to burn 300 to 400 calories in an hour!


Physical Fitness

The development of physical fitness that is obtained through aerial yoga, trapeze or silks should never be underestimated. Aerial fitness increases muscle strength as well as tones your body naturally, no matter what age you are. This strengthening extends beyond just the muscles, developing other tissues such as the ligaments and tendons assisting in preventing injuries while taking part in other activities.

Mental Health

It’s not a secret that physical activity offers an excellent boost to your mental health. Aerial acrobatics’ mental-health benefits go far beyond traditional types of fitness. For example, aerial yoga would bring the feeling of calmness. This is derived from deep muscle relaxation from being “hanged in the air” as well as meditation and breathing exercises. Another important factor for mood lifting is the amount of oxygen derived to your brain. Well, anti-gravity fitness will definitely give you a plentiful supply of oxygen for the brain! 

Keeping all these benefits in mind, Aerial Fitness is a great way to stay fit and healthy for individuals who may have become bored with their current exercise regimes or for those in search of new challenges. These activities are not only fun but have assisted many in building a strong body as well as a sound mind.
