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 was really important to Holly so with this in mind Circus Strong was born!!
WE HAVE 5 KEY AIMS THAT GUIDE US IN EVERYTHING WE DO

Hey everyone I’m Holly and I’m a proud transgender woman. I started aerial about 5 years ago when I started transitioning. You see before I started aerial I was a really angry person suffering from depression, feeling suicidal and just an arsehole.
That all changed when I took my first aerial silks lesson. I finally found something I was good it in life and met the friendliest non judgement people ever. So I kept training, then I started competing and then I started getting gigs and well aerials just in my blood now.
I’ve pretty much done them all but I specialiSe in
- Aerial Silks
- Aerial Rope
- Aerial Straps
- Aerial Swing
- Aerial Hoop
I also focus a lot on bodyweight training which is why I started CrossFit and decided to create the CrossFly concept.
