More about us
We started in 2021 when our fabulous founder Holly had enough of the corporate 9 to 5 world and as a transgender women she had experienced plenty of judgement in traditional gyms and always found them rather boring.
- So . . . having spent 5 years training aerial
- competing (and winning a lot he he)
- and performing professionally
she decided it was time to turn her passion into a business.
Creating a fun, sociable, safe & judgment free organisation that welcomes people and provides an alternative to the gym. She collaborated with Nat to bring some creative insights into the business and create the brand that lives and breathes it’s ethos.
So with this in mind Circus Strong was born!!
we first started with running online classes in strength and conditioning and flexibility that allowed people to get their workout fix during covid-19 pandemic. with time, we managed to secure funding and rent out a sports hall in nottingham where we started to run our first aerial classes (and had to travel back and fourth with a-frames between our faces!)
Then in 2022 we wanted to push further, that’s when we found our permanent home in ashbourne !
