Cirque-It Fitness was born of out of the joy of movement. Founder, Elizabeth Skwiot, fell in love with circus training at age 23 when she first stepped off a flying trapeze platform at a circus school. Circus training brought back the joy in movement she had as a child but had slowly lost touch with in adult life.

Combining her experience in Pilates and competitive fitness, Elizabeth set out to create a workout that was not only effective but something to look forward to, an outlet in a busy life – a workout that was more than just another chore. The result is a class that combines elements of circuit training, functional and core fitness, Pilates influence, variable intensity training, and circus arts into one expertly-designed 45-minute workout. Cirque-It Fitness teaches ‘circus-infused’ moves in a small group circuit training format that is fun, challenging, and accessible to a wide variety of fitness levels.

Cirque-It Fitness In the Fitness Community

By implementing CIF in their facilities, studios can offer a specialized, monetizable small-group training that offers members a new, sensorial circuit training experience still grounded in science. Everything needed to run a class can be stored in a single suitcase; with a low cost of entry and no studio licensing fees, CIF offers a unique way to generate additional revenue and stay competitive in today's booming boutique market.
