What Can Pole Fitness Do For You?
The men and women who practice pole dancing on a regular basis often report improvement not just in strength, but also self-confidence and body image. Although once pegged as a controversial erotic performance art, pole dancing has rapidly blossomed into an internationally respected form of fitness, boasting more than 500 studios in the United States alone. Even without a slot on the Olympic schedule of events, practitioners of the demanding exercise genre perform at amateur and professional competitions throughout the world each year.
Is Pole Fitness Right For You?
Although pole dancing is fun, it is still a serious athletic endeavor that should not be taken lightly. Some people do not realize how challenging it is when first starting. In addition to the bruises, pole dancers can experience shoulder and/or back pain with improper technique or overtraining.
Some people don't learn from from certified instructors and instead try to figure it out with an improperly installed home pole and a YouTube instructional, which is a recipe for disaster. Some people can be too eager to flip upside down. This can be especially dangerous and can lead to head or spinal cord injury. This caution isn’t meant to scare away hopefuls, but rather to encourage everyone to go through gradually progressive training.
Should I even try, I have no upper body strength?
Yes! Pole Fitness is for everyone and anyone regardless of your shape and size! All fitness levels are welcome. You will (quickly) develop the strength needed to execute an array of pole moves. No previous dance experience is necessary. We will teach you everything you need to know!
What can I expect?
Classes generally begin with a cardio warm-up and stretching, followed by some light conditioning exercises. The bulk of the class is spent learning tricks, spins, combos or choreography. Classes end with a brief cool down.
What should I wear?
Skin to pole contact is key for the grip required for spins and tricks. Beginners should wear short shorts, a sports bra and a tank top. No oils or lotions on your skin to avoid slipping, and please remove all jewelry.
