Aerial acrobats require lithe forms, graceful movements, and a tolerance for intense heat while performing 100 feet closer to the sun than ground acrobats. Develop solar resistance with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two drop-in aerial fitness classes (a $50 value) at The Power Plant Aerial & Martial Arts Center in Manhattan Beach. Since today's deal is only good for new clients, you will also receive a free introductory lesson offered to first-time students.
Director and owner Michelle Bolong, a former Cirque du Soleil performer and tae kwon do champion, leads a band of professional aerialist instructors who help students gracefully tone bodies while gaining inner strength and discipline. Classes combine elements such as martial arts, pilates, and acrobatic conditioning using static trapeze and cirque-style fabrics for adults and children ages five and up. The 2,800-square-foot training facility features a state-of-the-art professional sprung floor, also known as a floating floor or Mr. Bouncy Ground, to provide a high level of shock absorption.
