Yesterday was my husband Eric’s birthday and instead of buying him a present I planned a day of fun for him. I surprised him with a trapeze class with Richie Gaona at his elaborate trapeze set up in his backyard in Woodland Hills. It was adrenaline fueled fun and athletic Eric was a natural at flying! After swinging through the air on the flying trapeze we headed up to MalibuFamily Wines for a picnic and wine tasting.
For the bachelorette or bachelor party that has to stay local and short (as in, no 3 day cruise to Ensenada or weekend in wine country) this trapeze class would be a fun and bonding experience for you and your crew.
Granted, you probably won’t be able to re-catch the bar on your first lesson like Eric did because he has unreal ninja-like skillz, but you’ll love the feeling of flying and cheering your friends on. Just don’t do this within a few days of an important event where you have to walk gracefully (ahem, wedding) as your calve muscles will be so sore you’ll hobble. It was worth it though!
