Can I do Pole Fitness?
What are the benefits of Pole Fitness?
What do the lessons entail?
What if I am running late and miss the warm-up?
We have a very strict late entrance policy and students will not be allowed into the class if they are more than five minutes late to ensure that you participate in the warm-up exercises. Warming up allows your muscles to prepare for exercise and reduces the risk of injury. It is imperative that students participate to prevent getting injured. We recommend everyone be at least 10 minutes early to class. If you are a new student here for your first visit, if you are less than 10 minutes early, we cannot guarantee entrance into the class as we need to make sure you have a waiver on file, show you where the restrooms are, review covid procedures, and get your station set up.
How often do I need to take classes?
That is a matter of preference depending on your schedule or how quickly you would like to advance. We offer several package options to accommodate your schedule, ranging from individual classes all the way to monthly memberships. Start with what you feel is comfortable to commit to and we will help you pick a package that fits your needs should you want to come more often. That being said, the average attendance per week is 2-3 times.
I feel too old for this. Can I still participate?
How flexible or fit do I need to be to take a class?
Is the equipment strong enough for me?
Yes, the poles are built to withstand lots of weight and pressure since eventually you will be swinging yourself around them and be upside down. We take great care in making sure that our equipment is installed properly so you feel comfortable in your workout.
Are these activities injury provoking?
I have had injuries in the past. Can I still do this?
Do I need to strength train elsewhere as well?
Not necessarily. In addition to the awesome workout you will get with pole, we do provide strength training and flexibility classes that will help condition you further. However, cross training is a great thing to do and we would never discourage anyone from exercising in other ways.
Do men do this too?
What should I wear?
For pole fitness we recommend tank tops and sports bras, and tight fitting shorts (you can wear pants over them) for bottoms. Other classes may require different attire. Check the class description for specifics. Most of the classes are done in bare feet.
I have sweaty hands. Will that prevent me from doing well?
Do I need to remove my jewelry during classes?
Yes. Rings can scratch the poles and cause calluses under the fingers, and other jewelry can snag the fabric of the silks. We ask that jewelry other than small necklaces and earrings be removed before you begin class.
