Trapeze

 

YUP, THAT'S ME ROCKIN' THE TRAPEZE

Notice that I'm wearing a safety harness attached to safety lines. There's also a huge foam mat beneath me that you can't see in the pic. I was 100% secure at all times and falling is actually more graceful (and fun) than you'd think.

TRAPEZE IS A BLAST

I had so much fun working on this video which couldn't have been possible without Espana STREB Trapeze Academy's team of experts. They're brilliant and made learning trapeze skills less scary than I thought. When you're up high on that platform, your mind tells you no, No, NO but STREB's trapeze instructors empower you with affirmations of yes, Yes YES and before you know it, you're soaring! It's a special place where classes are small and friendly; a Williamsburg, Brooklyn gem. For more information contact Bobby Hedglin-Taylor at (718) 384-6491 or visit www.streb.org

THIS GIVEAWAY IS FLY

Clearly you don't need sneakers during flying trapeze class, but you do need a pair to get to class. Reebok's ZigPulse sneaker is a great workout shoe with a flashy zig-zag sole that absorbs the impact of high intensity exercise. So whether you power walk, run or jump a lot, ZigPulse sneakers will reduce the stress from these activities on your leg muscles. If you like the ZigPulse Pink Ribbon sneakers featured in my trapeze video and you happen to be a size 9.5 then you're in luck because I'm giving away a brand new pair. All you have to do is leave a comment below about trapeze classes or fashion in your hometown. Let's get a conversation going and spread the word about trapeze fitness.  

The Reebok ZigPulse Giveaway winner will be picked at random on November 20th, 2010.

I can't wait to read your comments!

Love the sneakers but must opt out of the giveaway; they're not my size.
I've done trapeze in Tillson, NY. The scariest part was climbing the ladder to the platform. Upper body strength and a firm grip are important though; you'll tire out quickly without them.

Hi Karin,

So true! There's a lot of core work involved too, especially when you raise your knees to get your legs over the trapeze so that you can hang and swing from them upside down. Not gonna lie, I was scared at the beginning but after a few attempts I couldn't get enough!

What a fun video, I wish I could swing on a trapeze for exercise every morning before going to work...!

I love Jo+Jax, what a great brand!! Their Tri-Tank is what I wear to exercise every day.

ugh, this is beyond cool! I'm catching the next L train to Williamsburg for a swing session. Love the color on those jade pants too. Great video, mizzfit!

Dana,

The Tri-Tank is my favorite piece too!

Thanks Buns-of-steal. You should def go. It's gymhopper worthy.

I love this, it looks so freeing! I cant wait to try a class, Im super close to williamsburg wondering what the price point and how long a class is! Also I am a size 9.5 ;)

Hi Shana,

The trapeze academy at STREB is awesome and you'll love the experience for sure! Classes are 2 hours long and can be purchased as a 10 week long workshop series for $425. You can also purchase single classes if a long time frame doesn't appeal to you. Shoot them an email at trapeze@streb.org with any further questions or concerns. They're SO NICE and will definitely accommodate you. You're officially entered for the giveaway--good luck! Thanks for your commenting!
