Pole Fitness

What should I wear?

FOR POLE:

For the added ease of learning spins and climbing the pole, we recommend you wear  comfortable workout shorts, a sports bra and a comfortable shirt to your first pole class.  Before pole class, please do not apply any lotion or moisturizer to your hands or legs as this will cause difficulty gripping the pole and please remove all rings as they tend to scratch the pole and pinch fingers. For safety reasons high heels are not allowed until the last 10 minutes of class unless otherwise allowed by your instructor.  

FOR HOOP , HAMMOCK & BUNGEE

Comfortable yoga pants or leggings and a comfortable shirt.

 

 


Does everyone work on the same thing in class?

Yes and No.  There may be some time where we all focus on one pole move or skill but for the majority of class time you will be working on a pole move at your own pace.  

If you are a beginner, you will start with the basics and work your way up while your neighbor, who may be a little more advanced, will work on moves at their own level.  We will never expect anyone to attempt a pole move they are not comfortable with.  


Can I take pictures in class?

Absolutely! But please be mindful of others and your time.  Pole classes are one hour long and we would prefer if you waited until the last 10 minutes of class to snap those selfies. That way you can focus on learning new skills and getting your workout in uninterrupted.  Also be mindful of others in the class as they may not want their pictures taken.


“I need to work-out  before coming to classes because have no upper body strength.”

LIES! You need zero experience or workout history to attend these classes and learn pole.  Pole fitness is just like any other workout routine.  All experts start as a beginner.


Bungee Workout 

What do I wear?

For the bungee workout it is best to wear workout shorts or pants and a comfortable shirt.   For your shorts or pants, think cushion!  Tennis shoes are required. 


Is it low impact?

Yes. If done properly the Bungee Workout does decrease the amount of pressure put on your joints.  But don't let that fool you. The Bungee Workout is a high intensity cardio workout and is not safe for those who have had any recent surgeries. 


Can I take pictures or video in class?

No.  We do not allow any pictures or video recordings of the Bungee Workout taken by anyone other than our staff members.   We will record each the choreographed routines for you and post them to facebook or e-mail them directly to you. 

 


Is there a weight limit?

Yes.  The Bungee Workout TM system weight limit is 250lbs and harnesses fit a variety of sizes with the max measurements of Waist: 46" Leg Loop: 26.3" If you do not meet these requirements you will not be able to participate in class.


Can men participate?

Of course! The Bungee Workout is open to both men and women.
