Alex Gaona is a trapeze artist, trapeze catcher and stuntman. He took his first swing on the flying trapeze at the age of two. Alex earned a reputation in the circus and trapeze world as a professional and safe catcher. He coached trapeze staff around the world to correctly pull safety lines and follow safety procedures while operating their own trapeze rigs and has trained many other catchers. His coaching style is encouraging and empowering. 


Gaonas Trapeze

Additional Information

Gaona's Trapeze Workshop utilizes this aerial art for recreational enjoyment, healthful living, physical conditioning, team building, improving self-confidence, overcoming fear, working with trust and anxiety issues and other therapeutic benefits, and many other areas. It has gained world-wide acclaim as a safe but challenging mode of exercise that’s suitable for people of all fitness levels and ages. Gaona’s Trapeze Workshop has regular fliers as young as 8 and as old as 80.
 

More exciting than yoga, Pilates or weight training, much safer than skateboarding or skiing, flying trapeze allows the student to progress at their own pace but at the same time feel part of a team. The safety equipment allows the flyer to (mostly!) put the fear of falling behind them and concentrate on the commands from the coach, all the while being cheered on by the other participants. It’s perfect for groups of like-minded friends who want to try something new together and has become a favorite activity for bachelor/ bachelorette parties, birthday parties, corporate events, etc.

How Safe is the Trapeze?

Very safe. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff works with each individual to provide competent and thorough instruction while maintaining a safe environment for everyone. 

While flying, you are on a belay rope at all times, from the moment you set foot on the ladder, until you return to the ground from the net.
