Over the past 5 years I have worked alongside Donna Aston at Donna Aston Fitness developing the one on one training method, called 'Cirq' which utilises the physicality of the circus to achieve peoples personal fitness goals.
This is a functional movement form with an emphasis on mindfulness where you are strongly encouraged to challenge yourself beyond the regular gym workout.
This is a building block technique taking an absolute beginner and training them to a level of competence they may otherwise only have dreamed about. It is geared towards the average person who loves the physicality portrayed by circus artists but dislikes the idea of a monotonous daily workout at an impersonal gym.
Circus is an all over body workout.
"Since I have been working out with Cirq I stopped lifting weights and get a great amount of joy coming into the gym to train" Donna Aston.

Corporate conferences and conventions are often looking for the next exciting activity to give their event an edge. Circus skills are a great way to challenge people and prove to them straight away that they are capable of achieving more than they realise. It is fabulous for team building as it actively encourages people to trust each other and start to develop the types of partnerships that companies want.
