Benefits & Pitfalls Of Pole Dance Fitness, And A Creative 20-Minute Core & Flexibility Workout For Those Of Us That Don’t Have Access To A Pole

Recently, I’ve been hearing more and more about pole dancing classes. And to be completely honest, I am intrigued! *Gasp* What? I said I AM INTRIGUED! Haha!

Exercising with dance poles has become one of the hottest workout trends. And since I am such a curious Nancy, I decided to take a look into potential benefits of such a workout prior to dishing my money out. Hey! I am not cheap, I just like to know what I am paying for. Don’t we all, anyway?

And to be frank, I am completely blown away after my little search. Take a look at this.

Not only that pole dancing seems fun and exciting, it targets your ENTIRE body. Since this workout combines isometric and isotonic movements, it can work some of the muscles you never knew existed before. Now you see why I am so intrigued?!

However, there is also another side to it… a painful side a.k.a. BRUISES!

Hey! I gotta cover it all, no?! But despite the bruising, I think I’m gonna give it a try in the future. Worst case scenario: I’ll be super sore for a couple of days and bruised here and there, but at least I would have had fun. *A wide smile from ear to ear!* 

Since I don’t have an access to a pole at home *DUH!* and still want to *need to* strengthen and tone my core, I settled for the following core workout.

Followed by this easy toning and stretching routine.

So tell me now, have you ever tried a pole dancing class? What are your thoughts on it? If not, would it be something that you would consider checking out?

  1. I’ve never tried pole dancing but have been asked to teach it before. I usually shy away from those classes but am now intrigued as well! Thanks for the info!

  2. I have never tried pole dancing, but I looked into taking a class back in my college days. If I didn’t live in the middle of freaking nowhere-ness I’d totally be inclined to find a class. I need some abdominal work like yesterday.

  3. I’ve never tried pole dancing, but like you I’ve been intrigued by it. I think it would be fun to take a class with a few friends, but I’m not sure if I would do it on my own. Guess I’d be too afraid to look like an idiot on my own, I’d need a few more newby’s so I’d have a group of us looking like we haven’t a clue what we were doing:)

  4. I would LOVE to try a pole workout if I could find one in my town. Naturally, being in a conservative small town, there are no pole-dancing classes. hmph. They’d probably be too expensive for me anyway. I’ll have to build up a tone of core and arm muscle for something like that but it’s on my bucket list to do this decade.

  5. Taking a pole dancing class is actually on my 30 before 30 list. I’ve gone as far as looking up classes in the area & recruiting a few friends, but that’s it. This post was my extra motivation!

  6. I have to say I’ve been really curious about this as well. In my area there is a gym called Femme Fatale Fitness and they offer pole dancing, chair dancing, acro-ribbon, and more. I think this summer I’m going to go ahead and try it all out.

    Great site, Olena! I’ll be coming back to visit.

    • Hi darling! Thank you for passing by, I’m glad you liked it. So Femme Fatale, eh? Haha! The owner definitely chose the name right. Acro-ribbon sounds super interesting, I’ve always found it amazing. I wonder if they have something like this here. Gotta look into it now! xoxo
