The Kannapolis based Circus Stella is looking for support for their Kickstarter campaign to make a workout video. Dextre Tripp and Jana Colgin form the husband and wife owners of Circus Stella with their five trained dogs.
Here is some information about the project from their Kickstarter page:
The most common questions we get after our circus show are always, “What is your workout?” and “How do you stay in such good shape?” Well, we’d love to show you with this new creative project, a Circus Stella Workout DVD.
This dream has been a long time in the making. Being a gymnast as a child, and a professional circus acrobat as an adult formed the basis of my fitness foundation. But I needed to learn as much as I could about fitness and exercise science, so I chose to become a Certified Personal Trainer with the American College of Sports Medicine. After passing the exam, I found a mentor, fitness professional Mike Krug to consult on the DVD to make sure it will be the best quality workout and a useful tool for anyone who wants to improve their fitness. Add in qualified Yoga Instructor Amber Nedoff to consult on the stretching, plus the film crew from Video Dye Productions and you’ve got a great team to produce an outstanding workout DVD.
I want to help people find the joy in exercise and become fit, fitter, and circus fit! This DVD will include a full workout we can do together; warm up, training, cool down, and stretching. In addition I will provide my own tips on staying motivated and getting some extra movement into every day. And of course, we’ll include a full performance of our show, Circus Stella, with rope-walking, aerial silk, trapeze, and performing rescued dogs! Yay dogs! Our dogs definitely help me stay in shape. Here they are helping me with my yoga…
