Aerial fitness programs to develop new skills and learn creative bodyweight excercises
WANT TO TRAIN LIKE A CIRQUE PERFORMER?
Here at AFB we've created fun innovative fitness education programs for you to learn new creative bodyweight exercises and aerial skills on our creative custom made AFB hand loop straps. Developed by former Cirque Du Soleil aerialist & acrobat Stuart McKenzie, AFB provides an accessible aerial experience and lifestyle for the fitness world.
The beauty of our AFB straps is that they’re home, travel & tour friendly so you can workout whenever & wherever there is access to a safe pull up bar - from the luxury of your own home, to your local studio or hotel gym to muscle beach & hanging around at the park!
BENEFITS OF AFB STRAPS
Aerial Fitness Bodies
AFB has developed a new aerial hand loop strap where fitness enthusiasts & cirque performers can hang from any safe pull up bar & train creative bodyweight skills!
The grip of AFB straps allows for rotational movement in the wrist and shoulders. This rotation gives relief on the joints and expands your range of motion through correct alignment. Additional recovery movements include hanging release exercises and spinal decompression.
AFB straps are designed with neoprene coating to increase comfort on the wrists. Focus on correct alignment and proper form when performing your aerial skills without discomfort.
Build More Muscle
The hand loop grip position will teach your nervous system how to engage smaller muscle fibres and larger muscle groups through greater ranges of motion. This results in greater back stimulation, a stronger shoulder girdle and more controlled core engagement.
Great Britain Figure Skater
Stu worked with me over a period of one month, teaching me a variety of exercises using the AFB straps to help me with my ice skating. Working only with my own body weight, I was able to greatly improve my shoulder and core strength, which has made performing the complex lifts I do on the ice feel much easier. Stuart’s exercises are now an integral part of my training routine.
Cirque Du Soleil Artists
Stu is one of the best aerial coaches we’ve ever worked and performed with. His knowledge of aerial movement and in particular, the aerial straps discipline is second to none. When we first heard of his idea to create a custom made hand loop that would be accessible to the masses, we thought it was genius. A beautiful way to bring the acrobatics, gymnastics and the circus world into the fitness world. Having tested them out ourselves and even having our children train with them, we’re shocked as to how efficient, strong, easy to use and comfortable they are. Now we can train anywhere and who doesn’t want that?

Stuart Mckenzie was my coach while he was in Las Vegas for over 6 months. During those 6 months I made more progress than all of my prior training combined. Stu always challenged me, while being fun and productive. I still use his conditioning program to this day. I would recommend Stu as a coach to someone that is ready to transform their body and put in the work to have a better lifestyle. Just the best!
