WELCOME TO FIGHTING GRAVITY FITNESS
Fighting Gravity Fitness is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s premier Aerial Yoga, Aerial Fitness & Lyra fitnessStudio. Aerial Yoga and Aerial Fitness is a new style of yoga that combines traditional yoga, Pilates, dance, and acrobatics with the use of a hammock that allows students to practice postures and poses that ordinarily may not have been available while grounded on the mat. It has many health and wellness benefits. You will improve your flexibility, circulation, cardiovascular health and joint mobility. It utilizes suspension techniques designed to strengthen and stretch the whole body, increase muscular tone, decompress the spine, boost digestion, and lighten one’s mood all while having fun and laughing with your class mates. In Aerial Yoga you achieve more than a simple stretch. You will progress to more advanced poses while increasing your overall health, strength and agility. It also is a fun way to exercise and get fit, or to stretch and relax.
Lyra is a circus art that you normally would see in those awesome Cirque Del Soule shows. It’s beautiful and elegant, but also challenging. We introduce it to you as another form of fun fitness that YOU can do. You don’t have to come from the circus or be a performer to try these classes. We are the only studio in the area that are not performers, but real people, helping others find a unique and fun way to workout.
We also have many other types of fitness classes that are not in the hammocks or the Lyra becasue variety in fitness is the key to sticking with a fitness plan. Having variety in your fitness routine keeps you active and engaged, keeps your muscles guessing and uses many different muscles. This helps prevent overuse injuries, keeps the brain learning and helps provent boredom. We have two studios right beside each other and have the largest variety of classes offered in any small boutique fitness studio. We welcome all races, religeous beliefs, sexual orientations and sizes. We hope to see you soon!
