Started circus and aerial acrobatics training: 2014
I am a circus professional by profession and my performing arts are aerial acrobatics with a rope and hula hoops. At Legend Trick Gym, I teach you aerial acrobatics with fabrics.
In addition to art, training and performing, the circus means a very strong sense of community to me. Training together, supporting others, trust and friendship!
I started circus training as an adult at the Jyväskylä circus and parkour academy, while I studied education at the University of Jyväskylä. Until then, as a person who had completely abstained from exercise, I made a complete turn when I noticed that playing sports and learning physical skills is really fun! The circus also increased my self-confidence and offered a completely new way of artistic self-expression.
I graduated with a master's degree in education and worked in early childhood education for a while until I realized that I needed to follow my true passion. I applied to Turku AMK Academy of Arts to study circus and graduated there in 2021!
GUIDED BY GOALS
I want to make sure that during aerial acrobatics lessons we have fun and safe training together. I want to encourage everyone to try and develop new skills, and to express themselves through wonderful aerial acrobatics!
I also want to encourage trainers to persevere, because hard work and perseverance can be seen in the results. It's the best feeling when you learn something after hard work - then you can be really proud of yourself!
From the Customers' Mouths
"The best training place ever!
The teachers are really nice, nice and professional. Really good value for money. And the gym also has versatile equipment and good facilities.
It's nice when you can take those classes when you want, and you can try other classes even if you haven't been before. (And you can still join in really well.) And there are a variety of different classes.
Definitely the best place I've been to train. I recommend! If you're even a little bit interested, it's definitely worth at least giving it a try!"
"LegendTrick Gym is the only place of its kind in Finland. Tricking is a sport about which unfortunately little is still known and it is often confused with many other sports. It's very cool that we have a gym in Tampere that mainly focuses on tricks.
The instructors are professionals and responsible. Developing in the sport is easy here and you get the best possible teaching!
However, in addition to tricks, the gym also offers different courses related to acrobatics, such as handstand lessons, which enable you to always get more out of your own body.
The feeling in the gym is always good and positive, even if you're just there to watch!"
