A Chat with Elevate Vertical Fitness
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are the only Aerial studio in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area! Our classes start at level 1 giving all students a chance to learn the basics and to build the strength and flexibility needed in the higher levels. Our most popular classes are Aerial silks, Pole fitness, and Lyra (Aerial hoop).
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
We offer several open Aerial and mixed apparatus classes along with pole fit and pole flex classes. If you want to spend half the class's on silks and half on Lyra come to open aerial! Pole fit and pole flex are 30 minute classes that increase flexibility and core strength needed for higher levels
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Cedar Rapids and Iowa City don't have much to offer for Aerial acrobatics and Aerial fitness classes. I have trained extensively in Chicago and Desert Moines and was looking to work in Cedar Rapids, the only problem? No one offered the type classes I could teach! So, I decided to open my own studio!
What do you love most about your job?
I love Aerial fitness and I love spreading the love to others! I think it is the fact that I do what I love that shows through in all my work! I think the thing I love the most is getting people to try new things and to help elevate them to a place that they didn't think was possible!
