Afternoon session from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. leave the ground behind with a series of aerial and AcroYoga techniques.

Athletic Playground

In the course of a typical adult life, it's hard to find opportunities to hang upside down. Unless you take classes at Athletic Playground, that is. Completing one of the center's workouts, which one coach refers to as "grown-up recess," may include carrying classmates on your back or doing flips in circus silks. Below, check out the five best things about their playful workouts:

  • They can turn you into a monkey. In one class, dubbed "Monkey Conditioning," students get in touch with their inner primate, re-learning how to move on all fours and clamber over obstacles.

  • You can't lose. There's nothing competitive about these workouts. Everyone is encouraged to do their best and applauded when they master a new skill.

  • You don't need a circus background. The studio welcomes beginners wth open arms. With enough training, their students can reach levels of flexibility and grace normally found in acrobats and pretzels.

  • There's a sense of community. This is especially true in AcroBalance, a class where students experiment with partnered balancing, and climb all over each other to build elaborate human pyramids.

  • Kids can do it, too. The coaches offer parkour, acrobatics, and aerial training for kids as young as five.
