The truth is, you never know if something is for you until you take that leap of faith and try! So we've decided to answer the 4 most common questions we get from people who are making the decision to take their first aerial class.
Will aerial fitness help me lose weight?
In short, yes but be patient with the process. Improving your fitness is something that happens gradually not over night. The benefit of aerial fitness is that it's a whole body workout, you will burn calories and gain muscles. When we look at weight loss specifically a massive part is diet! So, look into also improving you diet whilst you increase your exercise for belt results. And always remember to not be too hard on your yourself! Enjoy the process and learn to love your body more.
Does it hurt?
So this is a really really common questions! This is also a question that's very hard to give an answer as not everyone fits into the same "box". What we can say is some people do find aerial fitness more painful than others however the more you practice the more this "pain" decreases.
I'm worried I won't be strong enough...
This is an real fear and we don't want to make you feel silly for thinking this! All we can do as a studio is assure you that everyone has different starting points and starting today will always be better than starting tomorrow. We're here to help you get stronger so if you allow yourself to trust us we will support you every step of the way.
I feel self conscious doing group exercise
Again, this is a very real fear and we know it. If you don't feel ready to join a group class you can always opt for private classes first. AGL is proud to be a studio that accepts everyone and anyone and we'd love you to be part of that. If you feel worried please get in touch with us and let's discuss what we can do to best support you!
