Specializing in tumbling and strength/conditioning, he now spends most of his time teaching his students and enjoys traveling with this wife and fur babies.

She loves sharing her passion for aerial with kids and adults through teaching. Monet completed the training to become certified as an aerial silks instructor.

Aerial instructor and performer Monroe Ohlerking is eager to spread her love for aerial arts and fitness at the new GymFit location in Dutchtown. Monroe has been attending GymFit as a homeschool student for about 7 years and has been an instructor for 3. She was homeschooled until recently when she started taking college classes. Monroe found her passion in several physical activities such as trapeze, acro, straps, gymnastics, and silks or pretty much anything that gets her up in the air as a flyer. One of Monroe’s favorite things to perform is duo silks with her twin sister. She hopes to help kids and adults find their passion in the circus life as well!
