Aerial Fitness is so much fun and creates changes in people; conquering fears, trying something new, and pushing beyond their comfort zone.

There are 9 years old to 75 years old that can do this and it is tailored to the very inflexible or to the athlete. There are many ways to assist or challenge an individual. 

COACHING 

Zina overcame early life health challenges which helped to shape her core beliefs that encompass whole body wellness to establish a healthy lifestyle, mind, body and spirit. 

Core Beliefs

Our body is a gift from God and our response is to be thankful and a good caretaker of it.  Whole approach; all systems affect each other; heart, mind and body.  Workouts and exercise should be progressive and at your level.  Nourishing foods can prevent and even help what ails you. You are worth it! 

Your promise

To do your best, be open and flexible for new challenges, and ask many questions.  Remember this is a process to find what works for you.  Practice what you learn and be positive. 

My promise

To motivate and encourage you to make healthy choices, meet physical challenges at your ability level, help you overcome plateaus and to be here for however long you decide.
