Do I need to be in shape to try pole & aerial fitness?
Pole & aerial fitness is for everyBODY, regardless of your skill or fitness level. While many pole tricks can be physically challenging, there is a endless array of modifications and activities for every skill level in the pole & aerial space.
Pole dance lessons and choreography-based classes are especially beneficial for individuals who lack the physical strength to perform tricks, and learning how to move your body in an eye-pleasing, fluid way is challenging and rewarding in it’s own right.
If your primary goal is to master tricks, strengthening your body to perform these feats is something you will only gain with experience and time spent engaging in pole & aerial activities. If you are willing to put the work in and engage in pole & aerial training on a consistent basis you will be amazed at what your body can do. Let us help you become the best version of yourself!
I don’t feel comfortable showing my ‘sexy’ side. Is pole for me?
Pole fitness and dance are still considered taboo by many. It’s roots are grounded in overt sexuality but it is first and foremost a liberation from judgement, stemming from our desire as human beings to express every part of ourselves in any way we choose. If ‘sexy’ isn’t your vibe, that’s ok. If ‘sexy’ is your vibe, that’s ok too.
The bottom line is that you will not know what type of poler you will be until you take the leap and sign up for a private lesson or class. Many people who start pole are adamant that they will only explore tricks and the ‘strength’ side of pole, only to find shortly into their pole journey that they are drawn to the dance side as well. There is something powerful and liberating about seeing yourself move in ways you never thought possible. You will figure out what brings you joy and we will encourage you to run with it, whether it be slinking around on the pole in 8″ heels or pole dancing barefoot and gracefully executing various trick combos. There is room in this space for anyone and everyone who has a passion for fitness through self-expression.
