Where to begin

While performing, Christopher discovered that acrobatics, had disappeared from contemporary entertainment and the cultural landscape in America. In an effort to fill the gap, Christopher created AntiGravity as a hybrid of: artistic sports, performing arts, circus acrobatics, aerials, contemporary dance and hip hop, to embody a philosophy that nurtures creativity and emphasizes the joy of movement. In 1991, AntiGravity emerged to become America's premier aerial acrobatic entertainment and suspension fitness company. 

As the inventor of Suspension Fitness and the Aerial Yoga genres, Christopher Harrison has authored 8 groundbreaking fitness and wellness techniques, which are practiced in over 50 countries.
