Honoring Your Movement Practice
As an aerial yogi, aerial artist, or anything in between, fitness is your song. You understand the vital relationship between mind and body. And you probably have your own unique fitness goals that help to guide you on your path to wellness. These may range from exercise to nutrition to meditation and likely include your own creative additions.
National Fitness Day is Saturday, May 2, and we encourage you to participate. This is a day designated for celebrating that ongoing commitment to yourself, even if this year it looks a little different.

A Day for Fitness
Have you ever wanted to set aside a day just for focusing on your goals, your fitness workouts, and your healthful practices?
Founded in 2017, National Fitness Day is celebrated on the first Saturday of May. It's known as a day in the year when we are encouraged to celebrate our "strength and empowerment through fitness." At Uplift Active, we support these values and invite you to practice them too. In turn, you will inspire others to do the same!

This year, a major interruption has been thrown at the spring holiday's public events. Shelter-in-place orders, social distancing, and an absence of group gatherings as a result of COVID-19 have changed the game.
But that doesn't mean we can't still celebrate. Even if your local aerial studio is still closed, there's a lot you can do to observe this holiday. Here are 5 ideas for celebrating fitness at home:
Staying Safe at Home
Many aerial artists believe it's best not to train any kind of demanding aerial skills when you are alone. Stick to what you are comfortable with, and use a spotter and a crash mat. There's no need to push the limits, now especially. This day is about recognizing your own empowered self through movement.

At-Home Aerial Yoga Gear
At Uplift Active, we provide the highest quality aerial equipment and to make it accessible for those who dream of an at-home aerial studio. We make at home aerial easy!
For many aerialists and aerial yogis, an outdoor setup is ideal for the practice. It’s true that a portable rig makes aerial arts accessible in virtually any location. It can open doors to opportunities and offer rigging solutions to that familiar dilemma: where to find space to work.
What better way to celebrate these values than to fly free out in the open air?
