“You need to stay fit in the circus. As an acrobat there is a whole lot of cardio and strength training that goes along with it,” Joshua says.
“To become good at it (acrobatics) and to be able to throw yourself around up in the air, your body adapts but it does take repetition and practice and commitment.
What about exercise?
“You have to eat healthily as well to replace the massive expenditure in energy that you have in the circus with good food,” he says.
“You get to learn a lot about your body and you become more in tune with your body. You get to feel muscles that you never knew existed when you are training at that level every day.”
