  • Second Annual Aerialympics May 29th and May 30th in Layton, Utah | Evening | Promotional, Kairos, circus fitness, aerial arts, fitness, Aerialympics, lyra, Utah, Layton
    Posted by Civil War Ranch

    Second Annual Aerialympics May 29th and May 30th in Layton, Utah - Kairos Fitness, which specializes in circus fitness, aerial arts and pole fitness, is staging its second Aerialympics – this year on May 29th and 30th at the Davis Conference Center in Layton, Utah.
    Kairos, which opened its doors in January of 2014 in Ogden and now has a facility in Syracuse, has teamed with several partners and sponsors to bring an expanded pole and aerial show with more than 50 competitors and some excellent exhibition talent.
    The two-night event is expected to be the year’s largest of its kind in the Mountain West.
    Competition events include beginning, intermediate, and advanced categories in aerial silks, aerial hammock, lyra (aerial hoop), pole fitness, and pole art. There will also be professional categories in aerial silks and pole fitness.
    Kairos Fitness is more than a gym or dance studio, specializing in circus fitness, aerial arts and pole fitness, and offering classes for all levels, ages, gender, ability and fitness level.
    The first Aerialympics, held in April of 2014, was the largest pole and aerial competition in the state of Utah and featured 43 competitors and more than 600 paid spectators. The event was featured on Fox 13’s Good Day Utah and KUTV’s Channel 2 News. Representatives from the Aerialympics also made two appearances on Park City TV, and the event was covered by the Ogden Standard Examiner and SLUG Magazine as well as indieOgden.
    Shay Williamson, the owner of Kairos, decided shortly after opening her facility in 2014 to host a competition that was designed to give her students and other local aerial artists the opportunity to perform and compete with the underlining goal of showing the community the incredible talent and masterful skills it takes to train on these apparatuses.
    “There has long been a negative stigma with regard to pole fitness and some other circus arts, Shay said, “It’s time to make that disappear with a clear demonstration of athletic and creative ability in an entertaining and often heart-racing four minutes!”
    Pole fitness attire is a common question among new participants and spectators. Many people wonder, "Why the sports bra and volleyball shorts?"
    “In addition to using our hands and arms to hold on to the pole, Shay, said, “we also need the use of our armpits, sides, stomach and thighs as grip. The poles are made of a material that with clothing will be slippery. But on skin, the pole material grips to the skin and helps us stay on and safe!”
    “But doesn’t that hurt?” Shay is often asked. “In the beginning of pole fitness practice and training, there is a necessary evil called ‘skin conditioning.’ This is when your arms, thighs, and hands are getting used to holding you on to the pole. After a short time this stops, and the friction-type feeling subsides, and hands become tougher.”
    Shay had danced in her youth and later switched to traditional gym workouts, which she felt weren’t fulfilling her mind or body. In October of 2012, she agreed to take a pole and aerial fitness class with her mother. She said she immediately knew after just the first class that this was her niche.
    After just a few months, she entered a local competition in the spring of 2013 and earned a 2nd-place prize. She began teaching shortly after and has since gone on to compete regionally and nationally, winning medals in advanced pole art and most recently taking 3rd place at the Arnold Sports Festival In Pole Fitness in Columbus, Ohio.
    This year’s two-day Aerialympics is presented by Pole Fit by Bad Kitty, the premier designer and retailer of fashion forward designs specializing in pole fitness apparel, and will be produced by Black Ops, a sound, lighting and production company based in Salt Lake City.
