MANILA - Flying Trapeze Philippines (FTP), the first and only trapeze school in the country, is officially open.

Located in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, FTP is one of the area's newest attractions for thrillseekers and fitness junkies, who are looking for an alternative form of exercise.

The school offers classes six days a week fitted for all ages and skill levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced), with price set at P1,250 per two hour session.

FTP also allows walk-ins for those who just want to try the new sport out.

Since flying trapeze schools have opened around the world, their popularity has been on the rise.

Celebrities like Hugh Jackman and the musician Pink have joined the act, each citing it as an alternative to lifting weights.

Pink even incorporated her trapeze training in her 2009 MTV Video Music Awards performance and then again at the 2010 Grammy Awards show.
