Pole dancing used to be something only associated with sleazy nightclubs and scantily clad women, but over the past few years it’s become huge in the fitness world and I had to write a post about it as I have been happily ‘poling’ for over a year and LOVE it!
Not only can you burn up to an amazing 600 calories per session but it also helps to sculpt your muscles into a long, sleek, gorgeous shape.
When I first started I was pretty nervous as I didn’t really know what to expect but I soon lost all nerves and became addicted. Everyone I know who has ever tried it feels exactly the same. This is a picture of the first time I did an invert (went upside down), I was immensely proud!
I’ve come quite far since then and still get the same feeling each time I achieve a new position. It’s awesome! That feeling of success is amazing and makes me constantly want to push myself to do even better.
It’s not like most other exercise classes where you wait months or even years to achieve the goals you set, with pole you set a new target each session, and usually manage to reach it within a few sessions. It’s a wonderful way to give your self-esteem a boost and I recommend it to everyone to try.
If you’re at all curious about trying pole dancing, go for it! I did and haven’t looked back.
