Our Philosophy

 

The Fly Gym mission is to help individuals of all ages and abilities achieve optimal fitness and well-being in a fun, creative, and airborne environment.

Fly Gym uses a holistic approach to teaching that takes into account the mental, emotional, and physical well being of our participants. We believe that through building a deeper connection and appreciation for our bodies, we can improve our mental outlook and elevate our emotional state.

At Fly Gym we promote positive body image and acceptance for participants of all shapes, sizes, ages, genders, lifestyles, and cultural backgrounds. We are dedicated to creating physical activity programs that are achievable and accessible for all unique individuals. No person is too big or too small, or too old or too young to participate!

For this reason we have created comprehensive teacher training programs so that our teachers and coaches have the resources, knowledge, and understanding to adapt programs for diverse individuals. Our goal is to have teachers who are able to create programs that align with the individuality of their participants, rather than create one program to fit everyone.

At Fly Gym we believe that all individuals have unique physical abilities and we celebrate those differences. Rather than categorizing certain participants as “disabled” or as a “special population” we see the capability that each person brings to our classes. We work with what a person is already able to do, and make it our goal to improve upon those abilities. Rather than seeing challenges and limitations, we see opportunities for growth and renewal.

The main philosophy behind the Fly Gym system is to HAVE FUN! We keep the mood light hearted, positive, and playful. As Fly Gym teachers we help to enhance the creativity and fun loving spirit of each of our class members (even those who think they don’t have one!). It’s about letting go of our inhibitions, facing the challenge to try something new and different, learning to laugh, and finding the essence of FUN within ourselves, our bodies, and in our connection to the others in class.
