Pole Dancing 101- Fitness With A Twist

Pole dancing has had some negative connotations behind it. Many associate it with strip clubs and the naughtier erotic side of people, as if it should only belong in strip clubs or on sites like TubeV Sex, but it has become a very popular form of exercising. There are even pole dancing competitions around the world. Using a pole to exercise started hundreds of years ago in India and has greatly transformed. This form of fitness is not just for women, there are many classes in many parts of the world solely for men. Pole dancing is not only a great way to get in shape, but is said to be a great boost in confidence. So when I got the opportunity to go, I tried it out. The main reason for taking up pole dancing was to help reinvigorate things in the bedroom with my partner. We are also going to experiment with keyholder services which have become very popular in recent times. I think it’s important to always keep an open mind with regard to requests from your partner that can fuel their sexual desires.

A lot of people talk the talk, but very few do what they say. So when I decided I wanted to try pole dancing, I asked around to many of my female friends. Of course many friends claimed to be interested. I looked up classes and different schedules, but couldn’t find anyone to go with me. I guess talking about it sounds better than actually doing it.

Finally a long time friend of mine, with slight hesitation agreed to go. These classes are extremely popular and many were booked, but I managed to find a class. Upon paying for the class we were immediately nervous. I already know I am no betty spaghetti in no shape or form and I lack upper body strength as far as I’m concerned, but I was excited to try this.

Prior to the class we found out the attire was short shorts and a tank top and a notice not to wear lotion. Let’s just say lack of lotion wasn’t exactly an option in its entirety. Who feels sexy with dry or ashy skin? It is important not to wear any or much at all because you will slide off the pole. Yoga mats were waiting for us when we entered the room and we sat down.

Class started and we did a warm up. The warm up was a work out in itself. Push ups, crunches, fan kicks, and much more. Finally it was time to put the mats up and start on the pole. We all were instructed to get a partner because we were sharing a pole. I was really glad my friend was with me. The instructor taught us how to walk around the pole, (in a sexy fashion of course), body rolls, basic floor work, fan kicks, a fireman spin, back hook spin, and dismounts to the floor.

After learning all these different techniques we put it together to make a routine. Finally we warmed down and class was over. I survived and I was very proud of myself. We had a lot of fun. The instructor even came over to talk to my friend and I to let us know we did very well and she can tell we had a lot of fun.

Although I was extremely sore and bruised from class I enjoyed it so much I signed up for more classes. It really is a great way to workout, especially since I am the type of person who finds gyms boring. It made me respect the girls you see on fuckvideosxxx and other sites, with everything they do. This workout is for all shapes and sizes, those who may not be as flexible, or lack strength. It is actually addicting and I see why people really get into it. It’s hard, but it’s worth it.

Have you ever taken a pole dancing class? What was your experience like?

    I’ve spoken to a few of my female friends when they tell me about it , and they promote it for exercise purposes. Nothing wrong with that at all.

    • Holly Dayz

      It is awesome for exercise. It is a major workout. I was sore in areas I was unaware I could be sore in. It was so much fun though.

  • Christopher Adamson

    Anytime you can get the whole body working out at once . Your gonna get results

  • Bradley Cine (@bcine)

    Fascinating. I always wondered about a pole dancing class, though my interest piqued because of a female friend that does dance and told me about the benefits of being a male dancer. I chose not to try male dancing, however pole dancing classes sound fun.

    • Holly Dayz

      I went back to a few more classes and I had a guy in one of the classes. It is a great workout! Maybe one day you will try it out.

  • Rattles and Heels (@RattlesandHeels)

    I’ve always wanted to try a pole dancing class. I’m getting my exercise game up and maybe I do so after your review. I need something new and fun to tone up and this might do it.

    • Holly Dayz

      You should definitely try it out. It is a lot of fun.

    A good friend of mines had a pole dancing party for her birthday. I felt very awkward because I have no rhythm and it was not easy for me to do. I admire women that can really work the pole with ease because it’s hard work. I’m all about new experiences so I will try again in the near future.

    • Holly Dayz

      It is not an easy thing to do. I took a few classes before I actually felt like I was half way decent. My first class I was laughing at myself. I think you should try again for sure.

  • thesophislife

    Funny! Glad you liked it. I did it once for a friend’s bachelorette’s party and could not believe how much harder it was than it looks!

    • Holly Dayz

      Yea it was fun. I knew it was hard, then when you do it you really get it. I took a few more classes, they just got harder. One instructors had us doing pull ups on the pole.

  • Jaye@Curvatude

    Kudos to you! This has been on my must try list for years.

    • Holly Dayz

      Thank you! I hope you try soon!

  • kp3reloaded

    I’ve taken a few pole dancing classes before, and they are so fun! I think your review is perfect for people who want to sign up but don’t know where to start, or are anxious about how it will go.

    • Holly Dayz

      Thank you! The classes are so fun, I actually started wishing I had a pole at home so I can practice. It is just that much fun and you only want to get better which requires practice.

  • Carin Kilby Clark

    I would love to try pole dancing. It looks like so much fun and I’ve heard great things about the fitness part of it (from friends). I need to stop fakin’ and check it out!

    • Holly Dayz

      Yea go try it out. It got me toned up quick with just a few classes. It is a ton of fun too!

  • Tony Jones

    As a man I wouldn’t try it, lol but I’m all for it as far as the ladies go. There’s nothing wrong with dancing on a pole. Especially if it’s building your confidence as well as helping you stay fit in a fun way. Probably a good place to meet new friends who are trying to better their health also =)

    • Holly Dayz

      I understand that. It was a lot of fun. I heard a lot of people make friends at the place because they go all the time.
