Pole Fitness: The New Approach to Fitness

Sometimes going to the gym can feel like an unbearable chore, schlepping yourself and your gym bag into the place for the same boring workout you did the day before and the day before that. It doesn’t help that you haven’t seen the results you were hoping for or that you spend the entire workout looking forward to the end of it.

Perhaps what you need is a challenge, something that doesn’t involve complicated machines, bulky equipment or boring repetitions. A distinctive fitness experience like this does exist, and it requires only yourself, a positive attitude and … a pole

Part dance and part gymnastics, pole dancing, also known as pole fitness, is inspiring people — young and old, from various backgrounds, careers and fitness levels — with an exhilarating, challenging and sexy workout.

While pole dancing is sexy, it’s also challenging, offering extensive physical benefits. You’ll undergo a loss in body fat and an increase in muscle strength and power as you learn to lift and hold your body weight on the pole. You’ll experience improvements in your cardiovascular system, as well as in your overall flexibility and coordination, as you practice dance movements and body positions that involve smooth and precise transitioning from one to the next.

What to Expect From Seasons Pole Fitness Class

Pole fitness classes are generally an hour long, unless you choose to take a workshop or private lesson. Because of the maturity level required for the classes, we require that members be at least 18 years old to participate.

The instructor McKenzie will welcome you to class and try to ease any nervousness you may be feeling. The class begins with a basic warm-up, generally 10 to 15 minutes long.

Participants then practice a variety of moves appropriate for their level. Beginners often start with spins such as “the fireman,” a move in which you’ll learn to hook your legs around the pole and spin to the floor.

Pole dancing does require special clothing. We suggest that you wear comfortable clothing such as yoga shorts, workout tops or T-shirts.

In all levels, no lotion or oils are permitted, and instructors will usually ask you to remove any jewelry so you don’t hurt yourself or damage the pole.
