POLE FITNESS CLASSES - Be aware they are very addictive!
student training support
What do I wear?
Comfortable clothes you can move easily in.
Leggings and a top, or shorts if you're feeling brave
Avoid buckles, zips and jewellery
Bare feet or socks when on the mats, trainers or light weight pumps may be
worn for the warm up and cool down sections
What not to wear
Avoid moisturisers, oils and cream on your hands, legs & body as this can make your pole slippery! Avoid clothing with straps, zips and buckles as these can get tangled around the pole and or damage the metal
REMOVE all jewellery please
Always remove creams and moisturisers from the body and hands before pole as these can make you slip on the poles!!
What do I bring?
Yourself & a friend!
A water bottle with a spill free top
A training cloth / small hand towel, to wipe your pole
We teach from age 16 with parental consent with no upper age limit.
It is completely natural to be nervous, however students are constantly amazed at the sense of achievement and confidence gained by attending classes, even within their first class!! People come to pole for all different reasons and remember we all started from being a complete beginner - we can't wait to get you started and welcome you into our pole family :)
All classes accommodate beginners as we run mixed ability classes
Like everything – it takes practice, our highly trained and experienced instructors will help you. Moves can be modified and adapted to help you work at your own pace, strength and flexibilities - remembering most come to pole with very little upper body strength, flexibility and coordination.
Can I take photos and videos of my moves in class:
Yes, but please be aware we will allocate special photo/video time in the class as not all students wish to be in the background of photos/videos and taking photos sometimes means holding moves for longer so we like to supervise the photo sessions.
Let us know with no less than 24 hours notice if you are going to miss a class so we can offer the class to someone waiting to join.
Remember we are only an email away so please don't hesitate to contact us - firstname.lastname@example.org
Will there be others like me, the same age and size?
Everyone who attends a pole fitness class will have a different reason for being there and different aims and objectives. Some may want to improve fitness and become bored of the gym (or not even attended a gym!) some may come maybe lose weight, tone up or improve their flexibility. Some may join purely because they want to be sociable and meet new likeminded people. Others may just be looking for some time away from their jobs or families, or some ‘me’ time.
SOCIAL MEDIA too and we love feedback testimonials on Pole Passion Google so please look out for us on there

Join our Youtube channel too and watch past and present students plus as we host and organise Miss Pole Dance UK National pole dance championships check out all the fabulous routines for all levels.
CAN I GET ABS FROM POLE DANCING?
Even if you come to a class without much upper body strength, you'll soon build it up through pole dancing and fitness classes. Beyond upper body strength, pole dancing gives you strong core muscles. Your stomach muscles, abs and lower back muscles are all used to perform moves where you need to climb, lift your legs or hold your own body weight.
CAN I USE POLE DANCING FOR WEIGHT LOSS ?
Yes most definitely, with a combination of anaerobic and aerobic sequences you will be burning calories throughout the sessions. you will be working your whole body - its a full body workout and whats great news is that sometimes you don't even feel like you are exercising (until the next day of courses!)
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I ATTEND A CLASS ?
If you are looking for a body transformation then you need to be training 3-4 times a week plus focusing on a nutritious and balanced diet to match. Your training must also include complimentary workouts between pole fitness such as conditioning, stretch and flexibility training. Many advanced students invest in a pole too so check out our free standing poles (the most portable and flexible poles on the market)
