1. You Deserve Better Sleep
Insomnia affects a lot of people, it’s extremely debilitating even if you have infrequent bouts of insomnia. Being sleep deprived due to lack of sleep, interrupted sleep or un-refreshing sleep can have a major impact on your well-being.
2. Fewer Aches and Pains
Spinal realignment and decompression is one of the myriad of positive side effects that aerial fitness enthusiasts enjoy. We spend so many hours of our day hunched over a desk, computer or phone screen. All of this has a huge impact on your spine.
Aerial Fitness helps improve your spinal health, so if you’ve been suffering with back pains or neck ache, try aerial fitness to help relieve these symptoms!
Obviously, you should consult with a medical professional before starting any form of exercise if you have an injury or pre-existing condition.
3. Reduced Stress and Anxiety
One of the other many health benefits of aerial fitness is reduced stress and anxiety. Although you’ll be suspended and hanging upside down, which may sound scary, the hammock is very supportive and it’s very relaxing practising the various positions.
Allowing yourself this time to work on your physical well-being also has mental health benefits. If you struggle with stress, anxiety or insomnia, give it a go! Our aerial community is very welcoming and non-judgemental, so you’ve got nothing to lose!
4. It’s Time to Try Something New
Quite literally… New year, new you! It’s common to want to try something different during the new year period. Aerial Fitness is great because it’s so safe and accessible to perform. Also, you can quite easily get started at a local class or at home with no previous experience!
Aerial Fitness could be that ‘something different’ you’ve been seeking all this time.
5. Find a Fitness Regime you Finally Enjoy
With aerial fitness, you’re guaranteed to finally find a fitness regime that you actually enjoy! Going to the regular gym is so boring and gets tired real quick.
Aerial sports, on the other hand always stay fresh and interesting, because there’s always new poses to learn and things to improve.
Whether you’re wanting to try aerial fitness for weight loss, back pain, strength building, or flexibility training then you’ll definitely enjoy the unique sensation of being suspended upside down!
6. Become more Flexible
If it’s been on your bucket list to do the box splits for years, then let this be the year! Aerial Fitness enables you to stretch in different ways, and further than you could on the ground. The fitness hammock makes stretching more comfortable as it supports your weight while you ease into a stretch.
You’ll also be able to work towards that perfect back bend with an aerial fitness hammock – another bucket list item for many gym lovers.
With regular aerial fitness practice, you’ll notice that your arms, hips, legs, wrists, back and neck are all more flexible.
7. Improve your Circulation and Blood Flow
By spending time upside down, you’re improving your circulation and blood flow. However, it’s quite challenging to stay in a header and or handstand for a long time. That’s why aerial fitness is great for getting into inverted poses with the support of strong fabric.
If you find inverted poses challenging or near impossible, then you may find it easier with aerial fitness, due to the strong supportive hammock allowing you to move freely while suspended. Don’t let the floor hold you back.
8. Re-align your Crooked Spine
As we mentioned earlier, it’s so common for adults and even children to have misaligned spines caused by poor posture and computer use.
Aerial Fitness provides you an enjoyable way to realign your spine without expensive trips to the chiropractor or massage therapist. You’ll be amazed at how much better you’ll feel after just a few sessions!
So, what are you waiting for? Make aerial fitness your new year’s resolution today!
