Flying Trapeze For Beginners

How I Became a "Swinger" on the Flying Trapeze

Yes! I was one of the children who wanted to run away and join the circus, even in spite of the creepy clowns. I was lucky enough to live out a bit of this fantasy at the Trapeze School New York on the Santa Monica pier and take a turn on the flying trapeze. And it is nothing short of exhilarating. Learning to listen, understand, and implement commands while upside down is more challenging than I would have ever expected, but releasing the bar and swinging from just my knees made me feel as giddy as a school girl. Workout bonus: my abs, hamstrings, forearms, and upper back all felt pleasantly worked after my lesson. I can't wait to fly again!
