The title “Circus Strong” comes from an article about a wartime navy officer talking about her favorite workout. Using a variety of both ground and aerial circus skills you will get a total body workout incorporating stamina, core strength, flexibility, upper and lower body strength, and balance. Not to mention it also has fantastic mental benefits – challenging your brain and improving self esteem. You may not break a sweat (though many do) but you will likely be a bit sore the next day.
