Did you know there is an Academy of Aerial Fitness in Sunland Park Mall? Programs include Aerial Yoga and Aerial Hoop. Academy of Aerial Fitness is a nonprofit alternative fitness center specializing in aerial and circus arts. The nonprofit program  focuses on the promotion of: physical and emotional growth, confidence and trust building and creative expression through movement. According to the Aerial Fitness academy, traditional gyms and workout programs lack the group atmosphere and support system that Academy of Aerial Fitness provides. The academy’s goal is to enrich the southwest community seeking a healthier, happier, and more expressive way of life regardless of their age, gender, physical abilities, or economic status.
