Master Your Windmill Hip Key by Aerial Fit

Master Your Windmill Hip Key

A clean windmill hip key is an inspiring skill and it's a prerequisite for many drops, dives and advanced wraps. Our comprehensive course breaks it down into smart progressions with targeted drills to train out your weak spots and build on your strengths.

Be the boss of gravity! Don’t let gravity boss you around.

An effortless looking Windmill Hip Key is possible for anyone who trains smart, and this course is designed to give you the tools you need to make your training time productive and engaging. Windmill Hip Key is both fundamental (it leads to a lot of other skills), and incredibly challenging to master (because it takes so much strength and body awareness to achieve.)
