About Hoop Fitness

Aerial Hoop (also known as Lyra) is a large steel hoop, suspended from the ceiling on which you can perform circus aerial acrobatics!

During your Athena Fitness course, you will discover the beautiful art of Aerial Hoops and will cover a variety of techniques to approach the hoop. This will include getting onto the apparatus, creating shapes and poses, moving within the hoop and using the space around it.

The class will begin with an Athena style warm up concentrating on your upper body strength and core muscles, once the class is completed you will finish with a cool down.

You do not need to have any dance, fitness or aerial experience to start our classes, beginners need to start somewhere!

Studio: Purpose built aerial studio with Olympic standard pulley system rigging up to 5 meters tall & super thick crash mats!

I had no intention of joining when I brought my daughter along. I felt too old, overweight and unfit. I was just there to watch. The positive infections atmosphere was amazing. There were all shape/sizes/ages and everyone was so sweet and supportive to one another. I HAD to give it a try, I felt like I was missing out!

Like my second home and I wouldn't have it any other way! Athena Fitness is the place to get fit, toned and body confident! I've met so many great friends here as well. The instructors are great at explaining the moves, they're all excellent at motivating you and are very patient! Athena Fitness offers FREE tasters, so defiantly worth giving all they have to offer a go!! You won't regret it!!
