Shaping Up!

image9

As they say! Time spent in the gym is always time well spent, whatever you are shaping up for! The last couple of posts tell what we’re shaping up for but, in truth, we spend a lot of time keeping as fit and strong as possible in order to maintain our acrobatic performances.

Here we celebrate the effort put in with suitable pictures.

Leg stretch with Nile Wilson, UK gymnast, adding the weights for effect. And, talking of breaking out the weights, here’s another gymnast Epke Zonderland (The Netherlands):

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...

    The first photo looks like it belongs on barefoot blond bondage on tumblr. Too bad I don’t have a friend who does situps naked.
