We’re so proud of all of our students! To get inspired feel free to check out our Student & Staff Showcase videos.
Every student who comes to Aerial Fit gets the same safety orientation. Safety is always our first priority and so we constantly teach and maintain a culture of safety with our students. Having a culture of safety that everyone is on board with frees us all up to focus on the thrilling, fun, and creative parts of aerial.
Take 3 minutes to watch the safety orientation here virtually so we can spend the full time working out when you arrive in person!
Be aware that during the COVID pandemic we have additional safety precautions in place, which you can read about here. All of the footage in these videos was filmed pre-COVID so things will look a little bit different these days, however, the important things remain the same.
Safety Orientation Summary:
Safety is really important at Aerial Fit! As aerialists we need to be attentive and aware of safety practices in these three areas:
- Equipment & Rigging Safety
- Safety in the Training Space
- Safety in Your Own Body
Watch the video above for details so you’ll be on board when you arrive.
Come dressed for success!
To participate in aerial proper attire is very important. Here are some dos and don’ts.
- Wear comfortable form-fitting clothing that covers the armpits and knees and midsection. High waisted leggings and form-fitting tops work well. For some aerial classes, unitards and/or leotards can provide additional protection around the waist area. Be aware that you might be going upside down and please dress accordingly.
- Tie long hair back.
- Remove all jewelry especially rings and bracelets.
- Please wear deodorant in consideration of those around you and the equipment.
- Don’t wear anything with sharp edges such as zippers, stones, sequins, etc. This can damage the equipment.
- Don’t wear jewelry…it will need to be removed before getting on the equipment.
- Don’t wear perfume as it can linger on the apparatus and disturb those around you.
- Don’t wear moisturizer as it can make you slippery and damage the apparatus.
