Its official, Company has Olympic fever! Inspired by an incredible Opening Ceremony and lady medallists Rebecca Adlington and Lizzie Armistead - go Team GB girls! - fitness is back on trend. So what would your fantasy event be?
A gold medal in shopping would be ours, obviously. But when Companys Tracy and Lexxi ran away to the Gorilla Circus to enrol in Trapeze School, they discovered a talent for flying that could strike gold. And if you can get into the swing of things, it could be the coolest way to stay in shape this summer.
Gorilla Circus launches their new flying trapeze classes on Wednesday 1st August for the first time in Londons beautiful Battersea Park. After our rehearsal on ground level, taking to the over 10ft high trapeze sparked more than a small flurry of vertigo but the adrenaline rush when you jump into your first swing is exhilarating.

Sarah Jessica Parker was trained for a famous episode of Sex and the City by the same guy teaching us to swing, so were in stylish hands. By the end of one 2-hour session, we were swinging by our hands, by our legs and generally wishing we were Team GB gymnasts.
Ladies, its the closest thing youll get to having wings this summer. And frankly, what better way to see London that by hanging upside down 15ft in the air? Book your flying lessons here!
