Biomechanics & Safety in Aerial Fitness Instructor Training

As pole fitness and aerial dance have gained notoriety and increased in popularity it has become apparent that the people teaching these beautiful yet potentially dangerous apparatuses should have a better understanding of the human body and how it relates to these apparatuses to prevent injury and increase athletic performance.  This training module was designed with the intent of helping pole and aerialists gain a better understanding of biomechanics as it relates to aerial fitness to improve athletic performance and reduce sport related injuries.  Whether you are a new student to the aerial arts or a seasoned instructor this manual will help you take your teaching and training to a new level of understanding and performance. The information covered is intended to apply to all aerial apparatuses in general.  This includes pole, tissue, hoop, and hammock. Biomechanics refers to the effect of forces on biological systems, specifically the human body.  Biomechanics are a crucial part of our daily lives. Every time we flex a muscle or move our bodies an action takes place by a coordinated effort of our muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and skeleton all working together.  These actions can be explained and understood through biomechanics.  By studying the laws of biomechanics as it relates to sport skills, specifically aerial fitness, we can improve our understanding of how to improve sport performance and injury prevention.
