The 25 year-old (yes, she's lying), started her radio career as an intern at a Long Island radio station and worked her way through the ranks. After two hops across The Long Island Sound, full-time radio experience and various voice-over projects, she landed her dream job working in Market 1 radio and expanding her brand across the country. In addition, Wendy can also be heard on The Weekend Throwdown with Jagger, and The Weekend Top 30 Countdown, two nationally syndicated programs.

An adventure like no other...
FUN FUN FUN! I've only tried the aerial fabric (aka "silks") once in my life. It was over the summer when Bobby had some free time to teach me. We were outdoors in 90 degree heat and it was a private lesson, so I remember leaving feeling like this was just too much of a challenge for me. My forearms were on fire from climbing, and I felt so limited.
Bobby will be the first to admit that fabric, outdoors (especially in the Summer) is a challenge.
With that said, we've all come a long way in our static training. We're all stronger now. The other day, when I was just playing I was able to get into a position that I already knew for the static trapeze. After that, I decided to hit up Bobby again and tell him it was time to revisit my old friend, Fabric. Click here or on the above picture to see all of them up close.
The main difference between static trapeze and aerial fabric?
Different sets of muscles being used, for one! My forearms were still achey after, but it was tolerable.
Unlike, static trapeze, there is no where to "rest", unless you make a lock or a knot. With that said, I made my first foot lock in the air! It's the first step - which requires coordination and strength! I have strength, but am far from coordinated.
And while you can easily get tangled in your trapeze, you're way more likely to get tangled in 2 dangling pieces of fabric. It happened a few times yesterday, but I managed not to panic and figure it out.
Mel and I worked super-hard yesterday. Check out her beautiful ankle hang:
FYI: To get out of this, you have to climb back up with abs of steel... #OUCH! #FeelTheBurn!
Hope you had a lovely weekend! Best, W
