Aerial silks has become my favorite way to keep my body strong, balanced, and flexible. It requires so much skill in so many different areas of the body and makes you unafraid to test your limits.  I use aerial trapeze to build strength and flexibility. Staying healthy and working out is a lot more fun when you feel like you are at the circus.  Aerial silks may look fun and easy, but it is one of the hardest work outs I've ever done.  It requires the use of every muscle in your body simultaneously.  It's a great way to stay healthy and use muscles you may have never used before and definitely don't get the chance to work on very often.  When they say #livingabovethebar for health did they mean 20 feet above the bar?? Nothing like climbing your way up a silk to increase arm, shoulder, and leg strength!
