I recently attended a pole fitness workshop at Triangle Pole Fitness and had a blast! The workshop started at 10:00 and ended at 11:30 am. During my visit I was able to learn a chair dancing routine (ques song… Hey Big Spender!) and pole dancing routine giving 45 minutes to each activity. This was my first experience with pole fitness and I learned a few things. First of all I’m out of shape. Second, I struggled w/ minimal upper body strength to support my body weight on the pole and third, I’m out of shape… wait I said that already! However it gave me a reality check and I am determined to get in shape and maintain a routine to stay that way. The thing I really liked about the workshop was that it was a small group of women, ALL women, NO Men and the instructor Coach Angela was really great teaching the routine step by step, and even though you are getting a healthy workout it’s FUN and you feel good doing it. By the end of the lesson you’ve put a whole routine together for both activities that you can be proud of. In my mind, I was ready to hit a stage in the spotlight and do my own one woman burlesque showcase!
Tip: You can wear heels during class or participate in socks or bare footed, if you decide to wear heels be sure to use a Shoe (heel) guard. I tripped and totally messed up my two of my toes that day… drew blood and chipped my nail polish! BUT… It was worth it! Lol!
