A sociable fitness class for all women – shape and size does not matter! Fantastic for all-over muscle tone especially the arms and stomach. You will get some bumps and bruises, but it’s a lot of fun and really rewarding. The first lesson can feel tough but it only take 3 lessons for the muscles to adapt so you will quickly notice improvement. No matter what level the ladies are in class, everyone is hugely supportive and encouraging to each other, it’s a real friendly atmosphere.
♥ 6 week course = if you can make the set day and time, this is highly recommended for complete beginners to learn all the basics with other newcomers.
♥ Beginners = open to complete beginners or those who are fairly new to pole and still building confidence with the basics.
♥ Improvers = open to those who are more confident with the basics and looking to work towards the next level, or if you’ve had a break from pole and want to ease back in. Ideally you need to be able to hold a seat, do a couple of climbs, and a basic invert.
♥ Mixed ability = open to anyone with a bit of experience, not suitable for complete beginners. A range of moves taught for different levels.
♥ One-per-pole = You get a pole to yourself guaranteed. Open to any level, including complete beginners.
Private lessons can be booked for 1:1 instruction or shared with friends. Focus on areas you want to improve, iron out technique, or try something new together!
Socks or bare feet, a t-shirt or vest top, and shorts are required for leg grip – however, if you feel self-conscious then you’re welcome to put loose trousers over the top until you feel more confident. Once you’re in class you’ll see that everyone is so focused on what they’re doing and so supportive of each other, you won’t bat an eyelid about having your legs on show! And they don’t need to be hot-pants… any shorts will do, and they can be bought at the studio.
Yes, you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve in your first lesson. And muscle does build up very quickly – you normally notice a difference in strength after just 3 lessons.
Not at all, the poles are fixed floor to ceiling and classes are suitable for women of all shapes and sizes and ages.
Week one starts with all the basics – beginner spins, how to ‘stand’ and ‘sit’ on the pole, plus a few extras… pole has a range of areas so everyone finds something they’re better. Week 2 and 3 focuses on progressing these areas including starting to climb. Week 4-5 starts you on basic inverts (going upside down). This is taught very gradually making it suitable for all levels. Week 6 is when we take photos, try some doubles spins, headstands, perhaps a mini routine… These courses are great fun and really sociable. All the moves we cover prepare you for group classes.
Group classes are limited to 2 people per pole. The ‘one-per-pole’ sessions you get a pole to yourself guaranteed. Beginner courses are 2 or 3 per pole.
