5:30 a.m. is the perfect time for some high knees, planking, tricep dips, ball slams, bicep curls, and plenty of early morning sweat with Lisa Petruccelli of Train Your Inner Athlete in Westbrook.
The closure of Circus Maine is a real bummer. But there are still places to learn aerial silks, trapeze, and the art of handbalancing with Apparatus Dance Theater, Sellam Circus School, and The Circus Haus.
Free your inner ninja! The Ninja Fitness class is geared toward beginners and will help students improve agility, speed and strength. You'll also learn how to conquer those obstacles!
Lightsaber combat is what it sounds like: duels using a well-known (albeit not real) weapon, the lightsaber. Here in Maine, you can master the art at LudoSport Portland, a Lightsaber Combat Academy based out of Maine Warrior Gym in Westbrook.
