Movement, Circus, and Aerial Coach

Aaron is a world-class aerial straps trainer and performer with 10 years operating an international coaching business drawing from current research in human performance, motor learning, and exercise science. He has taught students on every continent  (yes, including research scientists in Antarctica), ranging from recreational to Cirque Du Soleil performers. Aaron’s teacher/performer training courses and workshops have spread his unique science-backed training methodology to hundreds of coaches and thousands of students worldwide. 

He has authored several comprehensive e-manuals, including “All Apparatus C-Shaping,” “The Aerial Spinning Reference Guide,” “The Aerial Swinging Reference Guide”, “C-Shaping At Home,” and has co-authored e-manuals on advanced swinging as well “Couch To Aerial Fitness” and “Aerial Straps Level 1 Teaser.” These resources serve as valuable references for students, coaches, and performers in the aerial and circus world.

Aaron also works as a health, wellness, and performance coach with clients of all ages, backgrounds, and goals. He uses his background in neuroscience and his extensive experience in strength and skill training to empower individuals to unlock their full potential for, a human performance optimization coaching service.

Aaron’s fitness and longevity coaching approach is supported by his work in the Fitness, Aging, & Stress Lab at UCSF in San Francisco, where he delved into the effects of cortisol on telomerase and other blood marker levels, and whether coaching could support high cortisol individuals in getting the CDC-recommended guidelines of exercise. 

Aaron’s personal training journey in aerial arts and coaching began in Washington, D.C. before he ventured to New York City, where he embarked on Circus Warehouse’s intensive program. Seeking continuous growth, he sought training under elite coaches in San Francisco, Montreal, and Mexico, further refining his skills and expanding his repertoire. Drawing from his background in neuroscience, Aaron brings a unique perspective to his coaching and personal training informed by his natural utter lack of fine motor control, effectively integrating scientific principles into his teaching methodologies.

In his pursuit of constant learning and growth, Aaron actively collaborates with other experts in the field, ranging from physical therapists,  performance psychologists, and occupational therapists, enriching his coaching offerings. This collaboration ensures the physical and psychological safety and well-being of his students while optimizing their progress and preventing injuries.
