“When I’ve earned this badge-I will have developed a great cross-training routine that keeps my workouts interesting and fun.
“Set your cross-training goal”- Girls can download a pdf with Cross-training and exercise example that help with circus and Flying Trapeze. These will include flexibility, cardio elements, toning and strengthening. When they arrive we will discuss the goals, and how Flying Trapeze and Circus arts can help them to cross-train while having fun. We will take time to get to know one another and discuss their fitness goals. We will then discuss their goal for the day. The goal for some may be to accomplish a knee hang to a catcher on the flying trapeze, for another it may be to accomplish a knee hang on their own on the low trapeze, or somewhere in between. We will discuss the process of Flying Trapeze and what to expect.
“Start a stretching and flexibility program “- We will practice the stretching that they have been doing, and speak specifically about, and work on good form.
“Add a cardio element “- We will discuss good cardio routines, and do a little warming up.
“Add a toning and strengthening element”- We will talk about the toning and strengthening that they have been doing, what they like, what their goals are, and if they are doing things properly. then we will go through our own strengthening. We first learn all of the necessary skills for the Flying Trapeze on the ground. We will learn and practice properly jumping off the board, body position while in the air, about patience and timing. We then use the low hung trapeze to practice, and finally practice getting into a knee hang on the low bar. Once they are comfortable with this, they get to climb the ladder to the high trapeze. Throughout the process this girls will be protected by safety lines. Girls will use their newly obtained skills to swing on the Flying Trapeze. They will use their practiced patience and body skills to get into a knee hang and finally when they have worked their way through these steps, and have gained confidence in their abilities, and if they have accomplished a knee hang, they will have the thrilling opportunity to perform their new knee hang trick to the catcher and swing in his/her hands.
“Stay motivated to reach your goal”- We will wrap up the day with a summary and discussion of their experience. How can Flying Trapeze and Circus Arts specifically, and cross-training in general help them to meet their fitness goals and maintain their fitness, health and mental health?
