  • Circus Girl: Fitness Takes Flight
    is more than a vigorous workout it is a small step toward fulfilling a secret dream of performing with Cirque de Soleil DiPiazza starts me on the silks two pieces of bright purple fabric hanging from the gym s high ceiling about two feet apart I ve done this before so it s easy to follow DiPiazza s instructions We move to the hammock a light purple loop of fabric also suspended from the ceiling You re a natural DiPiazza declares as I go through a series of stretches and splits hanging upside down in the secure cradle of the smooth fabric It s time for something more challenging I pull myself up on the aforementioned wooden hoop DiPiazza calls it a lyra Whatever you call it it s not for me Hanging upside down I can t get past the growing discomfort The blood rushes to my head My energy wanes DiPiazza can see I m struggling We move on Recommended Reading Charlie Puth Rumson s Pop Prodigy The trapeze is my next challenge I reach up to a bar at the end of a pair of ropes Hoisting myself off the ground I tighten my abs and swing my legs over my head and onto the bar Once I secure the bar behind knees I let go with my hands and drop my body below the bar Then I grasp the bar again pull myself up and swing my legs toward the ceiling for more stretches and splits My head pounds my muscles are screaming The rough tape on the bar is pulling at my skin DiPiazza suggests we move back to the silks My hands are thankful to be grabbing the smooth fabric once again I twist the fabric around my leg and foot tightening it so I can stand upright while swaying above the ground I go through a variety of moves arching back spinning pointing toes I weave my arms and legs in and out of the silks This is exhilarating There s nothing like some pretty fabric to raise my comfort level Now it s DiPiazza s turn to showcase her moves Stepping into the silks she appears to float upward Her body contorts into positions I wouldn t have thought possible And all while hovering 10 feet above the mats My lesson over my biceps and shoulders are throbbing and my brain is still trying to right itself Back in my car I barely have the strength to turn the steering wheel But as I drive away I m already thinking ahead to another class Circus Place is located at 6 Jill Court Building 23 in Hillsborough Eight week classes range from 250 to 350 private lessons are 70 an hour but can be split with one other student For information call 908 829 3784 Read more Jersey Living People Sports articles By submitting comments you grant permission for all or part of those comments to appear in the print edition of New

  • Into The Woods: Cycling through Sussex County
    this crossing it appears many people use this as the trailhead Proceeding down the trail we reach Footbridge Park in Blairstown another good starting point if you want a shorter version of the ride A large public parking lot alongside the park offers entrances to the trail at either end Riding through the lot we pick up the trail again as it follows the banks of Paulins Kill We cross Route 616 and ride into little Blairstown Airport an ideal place to take a break This is a popular spot for small planes and gliders to take off and land Our timing is good and we get to watch several gliders as they swoop silently over Kittantinny Mountain Ridge The other airport attraction is the Runway Café a tiny retro restaurant operated by owner Jeanne Anderson and her daughter Kim Jeanne tells me her late husband Frank was interested in getting involved in aviation We ended up feeding pilots for all these years she says The cafe which delights regulars with freshmade pies and cakes will celebrate its 30th anniversary in June Recommended Reading Red Ripe and Ready The New Jersey Tomato Back on our bikes we pick up the trail behind the restaurant and follow it along the runway until it heads back into the woods The sun filters through the foliage to our left on our right a field of drying stalks undulates into the distance At Cross Station Road the trail seems to end but we ride a short distance down the road to our left and pick up the path again as it heads into the woods In no time we are in the shadows of the massive Hainesburg Viaduct which towers more than 100 feet overhead supported by seven mammoth concrete arches When built in 1910 the viaduct which stretches 1 100 feet across Paulins Kill was the world s largest reinforced concrete structure It is an awesome sight rising high above the forest floor Alas its impressive arches are covered with grafitti some unsuitable for family viewing If you are sensitive to lewd commentary the viaduct while a highlight of the ride is probably best seen from a slight distance Beyond the viaduct the last mile of the trail can be swampy and impassable so we choose this point to turn back At our modest pace and with numerous stops we ve covered about 25 miles in a little more than four hours Families looking for shorter rides should consider turning around at Paulinskill Lake or just try the Footbridge Park to Hainesburg segment which includes a stop at the airport Better still create your own shuttle by arranging your trip with an extra car and driver Deposit that car in advance at Blairstown Airport or Footbridge Park and drive to the trailhead at Warbasse Junction Once you reach the airport on your bikes send sufficient drivers back in the advance car to pick up the other cars Voila You have a more enjoyable
