I have such exciting things to share today. Several weeks ago, I was able to get a hands on glimpse of pole fitness and I loved it!! I have been interested in pole fitness for several years, but I never took the time to give it a shot. I was introduced it through a friend at her Bachelorette party and I have been hooked ever since. It's hard to explain how exactly I feel about the pole because to be quite honest it is somewhat difficult and much more of a challenged than I'd imagined. All the pole dancers I have seen always made it look so easy and graceful so I had no idea what I was getting into. After the Bachelorette party I decided to take an intro class at a local fitness studio so I want to tell you a little bit about my first official session.
First of all, what I really liked about the studio was that it was very intimate. It was small, only 7 poles. It had dark walls and dim lighting and of course tons of mirrors. It made me feel a little better because the atmosphere helped me to really get in the character and feel more comfortable. The instructor was awesome with a lot of energy and great personality oddly enough I felt right at home :0
We began with a warmup that consisted of basic kicks and stretching. Then, our instructor taught us about the proper ways to position your body and how close to stand to the pole, how to hold on to the pole and how to walk around the pole. All of these are the basic fundamentals and even though they were so basic I still have yet to master them, but at least I had fun trying. We also learned how to do a basic spin around the pole and a small little spin routine. Pole sitting was the last thing we learned which was a bit difficult because it takes a lot of body strength to sit on the pole for any amount of time. All in all I had a blast to say the least. I highly recommend signing up for a fitness class, or any class for that matter. I can't believe that I talked about it for so many years and never knew how much fun it would be. Pole fitness makes me feel powerful and sexy while building my strength and confidence, like literally its my new obsession. I'm already trying to figure out a way to re-arrange my room so I can fit a pole in it haha.
Hope this post inspires you to give Pole Fitness a try!
