It's the newest (and arguably most fabulous trend) in working out. It doesn't require lifting weights or doing any cardio -- all you have to do is fly!
We know what you're thinking, there's no such thing as a human flying, unless of course you're in a plane or skydiving. While that may be true, aerial workouts are the closest thing you'll get to liftoff and truth be told, it's nothing short of awesome.
If you're wondering what aerial workouts are exactly, take a look at the Instagram video below to get a feel for what we're talking about.
If this looks like a circus act, that's because it kind of is. Essentially, aerial workouts are a new type of yoga which combines the traditional yoga poses, pilates and dance with the use of a hammock. We know, too cool for words! If you think this might be the workout for you, there are several places you can take aerial workout classes and perfect your flying. It may seem difficult, but after a few days up in the air, we guarantee you won't want to come down.
Take a peek below at several people getting their aerial on with the fitness trend that's currently sweeping the world.

Tear down, to build... muscle building time... it's a process that does not happen overnight. It ain't cute. It ain't easy. Folks will chime in and make comments instead of working on their own life... but you have to figure out what's healthy for you. We all don't look alike so every persons "healthy" will be different and that's ok. Cheers to everyone who has embraced being in a better place... mind, body and soul ♡♡♡ #spreadlove #support #rejectthebullshit #42
