The Perfect Class Mix

By Anastacia Snelleksz
Founder of Pole Princess
You may have had a squizz at our timetable and wondered what all of our classes really mean. You probably took the easy route and started with a Level One Pole Course and slowly worked your way up – that’s what everyone else does so I reckon that’s what you do, right?

Wrong!

We say this all the time but pole dancing is like going to the gym. When you first take out a gym membership you will tell yourself you’re going to go at least 4 times a week, right? Or maybe every day if you’re super keen beans… And for the first few weeks at least you will stick to that goal. Before you know it, you’re able to run faster, walk further, lift heavier, whatever it may be. We all know this feeling. Continue reading The Perfect Class Mix

Pole Dancing Muscles

Pole dancing isn’t the taboo activity it used to be. The strength-training nature of it has gained attention among physical fitness experts. Some people even have poles installed in their home. Pole dancing works most of your body’s muscles while burning calories and building coordination. Talk to your doctor before beginning a pole dancing routine.

Abdominals

Any moves that require balance challenge your core muscles, making pole dancing ideal in this regard. Many of the exercises involve being upside down, which also works your abdominal muscles. Pole dancing moves also provide resistance to your stomach area, enhancing the benefits. Most choices are beneficial for your core, but spinners, chairs, floaters, inverts and ab pullups are good options. Continue reading Pole Dancing Muscles

Fitness Benefits of Pole Dancing

Pole dancing has many benefits, from expanding our social circles to improving our confidence, but one of the central benefits of pole is the fitness benefits.

Through pole dancing you can firm and tone during a whole body workout. Gain strength – holding yourself up on a pole, let alone doing tricks is no cakewalk. Seasoned athletes who work out with weight machines and free weights struggle to match the strength our ladies have simply from doing pole.

Pole improves balance and coordination skills. Holding yourself up on the pole, inverted tricks and doing everything on 6” plus platform heels mean that your balance and ability to coordinate your movements improves as well as if you were attending yoga.

The best part of pole classes is that it is a fun way to get fit, classes are enjoyable so they feel less like a workout and more like a fun social group where getting fit is a bonus. Calories are burnt and weight loss is a great side effect of classes but without the terrifying weigh-ins and expectations that other fitness classes may expect when you join up.

But pole doesn’t just work out your body, through the entire class your brain is also engaged, thinking of music, movements, balance and muscle coordination. All of this requires a level of engagement that many of us lack in other repetitive classes where we end up zoning out and going through the motions. The active cognitive engagement coupled with the physical demands of pole mean that even more calories are burnt than if you went to a Body Pump class.

There are a range of classes to match all fitness goals at Pole Princess studios including fitness, flexibility, dance and pole based classes so whatever your fitness goals we should have something to suit your needs.
