POLE

How many times a week should I take a pole class?
A minimum of 3 classes a week if you want to progress.

I have no arm strength, Can I take a pole class?
Yes, you will build plenty of strength in your pole classes. In the beginning you will do more conditioning than tricks, this is how we prep the muscles to perform the way we need. Keep in mind that everything you need is “in you” already. Keep practicing, never give up.

I'm overweight, can I take a pole class?
Yes, but keep in mind that every student will develop the strength to control their body weight. If you desire to loose weight we highly recommend you take KANGOO, KANGOO SCULPT & HULA HOOP CARDIO to burn the extra weight off. If you do not wish to loose weight, then continue with pole classes and soon you will develop the strength needed. 

 

Is it normal to have bruises and burns?
Yes, your skin will adjust and soon your technique will improve, you movements will become more controlled and as a result the bruising and peeling will become less frequent.  Keep in min that this is an acrobatic sport, these issues are normal and commonplace...without pain there is no gain. If you don’t want to go thru this we recommend you try another class.

Heels?
You’ll be barefoot until you are comfortable with walks, spins, climbs and inverts. At that point you may incorporate the added weight with pole-approved heels.  We sell various styles at the studio.
