11
00:01:06,570 –> 00:01:08,460
been doing this I actually just started

12
00:01:08,460 –> 00:01:11,250
doing aerial training in general in

13
00:01:11,250 –> 00:01:13,530
September of last year when the studio

14
00:01:13,530 –> 00:01:16,740
will think you’re kidding yeah as a mom

15
00:01:16,740 –> 00:01:21,360
I want to say like 14 15 trainers all

16
00:01:21,360 –> 00:01:24,509
over Chicago were chosen to be the air

17
00:01:24,509 –> 00:01:27,479
team so I all got rained and yeah I’ve

18
00:01:27,479 –> 00:01:28,890
been teaching ever since Wow I would

19
00:01:28,890 –> 00:01:31,679
have never guessed well some people some

20
00:01:31,679 –> 00:01:33,569
of our trainers have been aerial dancers

21
00:01:33,569 –> 00:01:35,819
and like doing this for a long time but

22
00:01:35,819 –> 00:01:37,470
i actually just come from a yoga

23
00:01:37,470 –> 00:01:40,039
background and a dance background so

24
00:01:40,039 –> 00:01:43,440
just from teaching yoga dance and group

25
00:01:43,440 –> 00:01:45,899
fitness classes in general i picked it

26
00:01:45,899 –> 00:01:49,890
up pretty quick okay so what is air air

27
00:01:49,890 –> 00:01:53,159
is a suspension based training program

28
00:01:53,159 –> 00:01:55,799
so I like to compare it to similar to

29
00:01:55,799 –> 00:01:59,100
how you would use like a TRX if you know

30
00:01:59,100 –> 00:02:00,899
what that is it’s basically using your

31
00:02:00,899 –> 00:02:03,770
own body weight for resistance training

32
00:02:03,770 –> 00:02:07,020
it is fun like you can’t hang upside

33
00:02:07,020 –> 00:02:09,000
down and do like all these crazy tricks

34
00:02:09,000 –> 00:02:11,250
and things but for the most part it’s

35
00:02:11,250 –> 00:02:14,160
super hard because you’re challenging

36
00:02:14,160 –> 00:02:16,019
yourself yeah that’s what I love about

37
00:02:16,019 –> 00:02:18,000
it and that’s why I love yoga is because

38
00:02:18,000 –> 00:02:19,350
you’re you’re always working with

39
00:02:19,350 –> 00:02:21,060
yourself and within your own limits in

40
00:02:21,060 –> 00:02:24,660
your own challenges so yeah so if I keep

41
00:02:24,660 –> 00:02:26,280
doing the class what would you say are

42
00:02:26,280 –> 00:02:28,730
some of the benefits that I might see

43
00:02:28,730 –> 00:02:31,530
people right away just notice the

44
00:02:31,530 –> 00:02:33,660
strength in their arms I think that’s

45
00:02:33,660 –> 00:02:36,000
kind of hard to avoid because of the

46
00:02:36,000 –> 00:02:37,680
nature of the game right you’re always

47
00:02:37,680 –> 00:02:39,959
constantly kind of grabbing the fabric

48
00:02:39,959 –> 00:02:42,030
and your arms are engaged even when you

49
00:02:42,030 –> 00:02:43,620
don’t think about it like you’re holding

50
00:02:43,620 –> 00:02:45,420
a plank yeah that’s like really obvious

51
00:02:45,420 –> 00:02:46,980
but you could just be like slightly

52
00:02:46,980 –> 00:02:49,170
leaning back and feel your arms just on

53
00:02:49,170 –> 00:02:51,239
fire so definitely like arm strength

54
00:02:51,239 –> 00:02:53,519
comes right away core strength is

55
00:02:53,519 –> 00:02:55,079
something that you don’t even think

56
00:02:55,079 –> 00:02:57,060
about and it’s happening as well but

57
00:02:57,060 –> 00:02:58,950
like even more so anything where you’re

58
00:02:58,950 –> 00:03:00,569
just swinging it would just be standing

59
00:03:00,569 –> 00:03:02,319
and you don’t realize how much

60
00:03:02,319 –> 00:03:04,420
abdominal strength you need to have in

61
00:03:04,420 –> 00:03:06,430
order to just stay lifted and not fall

62
00:03:06,430 –> 00:03:09,060
Wow

63
00:03:10,329 –> 00:03:13,310
i’m here with kelsey tombs of kind as

64
00:03:13,310 –> 00:03:15,109
she just did this grueling workout with

65
00:03:15,109 –> 00:03:17,480
me so Kelsey tell us why you decided to

66
00:03:17,480 –> 00:03:19,400
come to air fit today absolutely there’s

67
00:03:19,400 –> 00:03:21,139
so many different Fitness offerings in

68
00:03:21,139 –> 00:03:22,969
the city but very few allow you to hang

69
00:03:22,969 –> 00:03:24,709
upside down to push up some planks and

70
00:03:24,709 –> 00:03:26,659
still feel elegant while doing is so if

71
00:03:26,659 –> 00:03:28,579
it was a place to be today so the class

72
00:03:28,579 –> 00:03:30,530
was pretty intense today we were on the

73
00:03:30,530 –> 00:03:32,389
ground we were in the air so do you have

74
00:03:32,389 –> 00:03:34,400
a favorite move from the class today

75
00:03:34,400 –> 00:03:36,169
yeah absolutely i love the push ups

76
00:03:36,169 –> 00:03:37,549
because you’re able to put your feet in

77
00:03:37,549 –> 00:03:39,799
the in the cloth but also engage your

78
00:03:39,799 –> 00:03:41,389
aboard core at the same time as well as

79
00:03:41,389 –> 00:03:42,829
your upper body something I haven’t seen

80
00:03:42,829 –> 00:03:44,000
anywhere else in the other fitness

81
00:03:44,000 –> 00:03:45,530
classes in the city so what would you

82
00:03:45,530 –> 00:03:47,239

85

each of us get into different poses that

86
00:03:52,370 –> 00:03:54,319
on her own you may not be able to do

87
00:03:54,319 –> 00:03:56,269
