Circus Strength Classes

Try our new CIRCUS STRENGTH CLASSES! (January 5th – March 31st) The Circus Strength classes at Circus Harmony are NOT 45-minute long boot camp classes designed to make you toss your cookies. They are training sessions with the goals of teaching proper movement, improving mobility if necessary, and ultimately increasing whole-body strength. The fundamental strength training class will focus on basic movements and improving general strength, while the advanced strength class will work towards more advanced movement patterns and specific strength-skill progressions.
