Flying Trapeze Philippines: The First and Only Flying Trapeze Rig in the Philippines

Wazzup Pilipinas!

A trapeze is a gymnastic or acrobatic aerial apparatus composed of a short horizontal bar hung by ropes or metal straps from a support. We commonly see them in circus performances where trapeze artists up above a high elevation do a lot of exhibitions to the amazement of the audience below. Trapeze acts may be static, swinging or flying, and may be performed solo, double, triple or as a group act. Of course, it is a lot fun seeing these men and women swinging from one trapeze bar to the next especialy when they do spectacular seemingly death-defying stunts in groups. Though thrill-seekers will surely  have an adrenaline delight to the extreme, there are some dangers when done without any supervision.

Yes, trapeze is a serious circus acrobat.  The good thing is, nowadays, you don’t have to be in the circus to try this art.  Will Hsu, a trapeze expert, started learning trapeze since he was 8 years old.  Now, he wants to share his passion through Flying Trapeze Philippines (FTP).

FTP is the FIRST and ONLY full size Flying Trapeze rig in the Philippines and one of only a few in all of Asia! It is located in the heart of Bonifacio Global City, Taguig specifically at Lot 11-A at the corner of34th St. corner 9th Ave. just near Mercato Centrale and almost opposite the F1 hotel.

FTP strives to make the sport of flying trapeze available to anyone seeking an alternative fitness regimne, inspiration, artistry and a few hours of fun. Their mission is to excite, entertain and challenge students of all ages (6 and above), shapes and sizes to live life to the fullest within a safe and trusted environment.

Step 1:  Jump if you dare.

Step 2:  Engage your legs to the bar.

Step 3: Let your hands let go of the bar.

Step 4: Crunch back to let your hand  reach the bar.

Step 5: Swing to a back flip. Easy breezy!

Anybody can try this art, fit or phat.  Would you need strong arms, legs or back?  The answer to this question is no. The beauty of flying trapeze is that it’s great for everyone. Whether you sporty or a homebody or scared of height or a thrill seeker, the trapeze is still be fun and enjoyable. If you are a beginner, you just need ‘will’ (Will Hsu and power of mind).  The first try could be the scariest as you jump the 25 ft ladder to make it to your first swing.  After, the first swing, you are now ready to take more tasks as you perfect this art.  So why are trapeze performers so fit?  The guess would be that the muscle follows what needs strength as you try to train harder.
