Anti-Gravity aerial fitness was created by world-class gymnastics specialist and Broadway dancer Christopher Harrison in 1991. Harrison formed the AntiGravity team in New York City as an expression of his love for creating movement. Harrison went on to invent the Harrison Hammock, the silk hammock apparatus used in suspension training and anti-gravity.
Team AntiGravity have become pioneers of acrobatics and the aerial arts. Harrison has since made numerous discoveries about the body and the mind, which he compiled into a methodology now practiced around the world. His health and wellness creations are known as Anti-Gravity Fitness techniques.
