Circus Conditioning 101


5 per unit Virtual OK

Get "Circus Fit"!

Want to know what it takes to get your body in gear to start training in Trapeze, Aerial Silks, Handstands, Chinese Pole, and other circus performance arts?

I can give you a general overview of what "circus fit" looks like and how to get there using bodyweight and/or resistance training (your choice, but you gotta choose *some* kind of resistance exercise, not just cardio). We'll also cover ACTIVE FLEXIBILITY and how strength and mobility are linked.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I am not one of those "always been fit" types!

I didn't do much with my body until I was about 28, and didn't start training for trapeze until after I'd had a baby in my early 30s.

So, I've had to work pretty hard to build myself up over the years. I feel as though after pregnancy I was starting over, in most ways.

Wherever you're at now, I can probably help you get to the "next level" and give you a road map to a state where you could start taking circus, gymnastics, crossfit, and any other acrobatically-oriented exercise far more safely and successfully!

Training & Qualifications

Trapeze student and performer, martial artist, and dabbler in handstands, Chinese Pole, and aerial acrobatics.

I'm also a software engineer which means a lot of desk time -- and you better believe that means a lot of special handling and knowledge of how to fix and prevent RSI pain!

(I am not a contortionist, but I can point you to some awesome resources if that's your interest!)

Availability & Preferences

weekday afternoons (PST), but try my anytime.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Naomi Most

San Francisco dweller since 2005, formerly Toronto (Ontario), grew up in Philadelphia. INTP. Self-taught programmer (20 years) of the Xennial Generation (we painstakingly built this web for you, ...pixel by pixel!) I've been following a cyclic keto diet for half a decade which has let me maintain 19% bodyfat or less. I do trapeze. I sing. I do performance art. I make things. I hack. I cogitate. I see the uniqueness and fun of everyone. I even lift, bro. I have one son (about 7 years old as of this writing) who goes to a really cool project-based learning more
