In 2009, Pink shocked audience members at the MTV Video Music Awards when she performed while swinging circus-style from the ceiling (and she didn’t even lip sync). Her singing-stunt was so successful; she did it again at the 2010 Grammy Awards—this time, while soaking wet.

Cougar Town’s Carolyn Hennesy has been enjoying trapeze lessons for the last 9 years.

“I've found that if you can stand on a 12x48-inch platform with two other people already on it and hurl yourself up into the air 25 feet above the ground, you can pretty much do anything that's ever asked of you... anywhere,” Hennesy says.

In 2009, Reebok teamed up with Cirque Du Soleil to create an acrobatic workout called Jukari Fit to Fly, which has since been enjoyed by the likes of Molly Sims, Mischa Barton, and Kim Kardashian. The combination of suspension and cardio “gives the sensation of flying while strengthening and lengthening the body,” the company said at the time of its launch.

From gymnast to aerialist! Former Olympic gold medalist Shannon Miller got into the high-flying art for a Florida-based fundraiser—and was hooked.

“Trapeze was beyond exhilarating,” Miller says. “As a survivor myself, I was honored to bring with me another cancer survivor so that we could "seize the day" together as a part of my mini-series last fall. Trapeze is definitely my new adrenaline rush!”
