Pole Fitness Classes

For a workout unlike any other... Pole fitness is designed for strength and core training. It enhances flexibility and body awareness while building natural poise and confidence. Adults of all ages, all body types, and all fitness levels are welcome. Join us for the most fun you'll have while getting fit!

All instructors are trained and qualified fitness professionals which gives them an edge in understanding muscle physiology and conditioning which will help you build upper body and core strength.  

Men, you are welcome in our classes! 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.
 
Not every course or class will be available at all times. If you are interested in a class that is not currently offered, please call or email to let use know there is a demand. Semi-privates are available with as few as six people -- design your own group class (eg. Men's Pole, Sassy Seniors, teen strength training).

Level 1, barefoot

eight-week series for safety's sake

Pole Basics

This is where the addiction begins, introducing you to the artistry of pole dancing - an empowering form of dance and movement designed to connect you with the sensual feminine spirit while getting in shape. The class will feature an introduction to beginner pole spins, tricks, and climbs and integrate transitional moves that combine the pole and dance into flow movement. You do not need to have any experience.

Classes incorporate a fun & flirty warm up/cool down. We build dance work, transitions, floor work, and pole spins. Strength training and stretching will round out your exercise, providing you with a great workout that will increase your muscle tone and flexibility.

Pole Flow

Looking to transform your favorite pole poses and spins into a fluid freestyle or choreography? 

 

This class is for the student looking to level up their pole moves and body awareness as we work on stylized pole combos, floorwork skills, freestyle techniques, and body isolations. In Pole Flow, we will work on combining both pole and floor flows, without focusing on pole tricks, to build fluidity in your dancing and keep you moving!

 

This dance-based exercise will give you a full-body workout as we build strength and confidence that will help with on-the-pole moves.​

  • Legwarmers, long socks, or knee pads may be used for floor work.

demands a strong core

Inversion Training

 Using the strength developed thus far, we begin to defy gravity. Inverting on the pole offers a full body workout, with greater emphasis on building abdominal, shoulder, and back strength. Also introduced here are fewer points of contact (some even hands-free!)

 

Here the student will focus on gaining strength and flexibility needed in order to perform specific moves and tricks with two or three points of contact.

 

Repeatable until the student feels comfortable upside down and transitioning into and out of an inverted crucifix as well as at least five of the ten basic leg hangs presented in this class.

Spinning Pole

You are a true pole addict now! This class is taught exclusively on a pole in spin mode. Additional points of contact are emphasized as well as momentum control. 

We will work on entrances/exits from the pole and build combinations that flow effortlessly around a spinning pole. Spin Pole makes everything more graceful and beautiful from all angles.

This class is for the experienced poler, designed to challenge your technique on a spinning pole while enhancing your overall performance. 

At this level, students qualify for the Teacher Training Program.
