Looking for an intense workout? Pole Fitness is for you! You'll work on your upper body, your core and your thighs. It's a great workout because you're repeatedly lifting your entire body weight for extended amounts of time. In the more advanced moves and combos, you'll be climbing up the pole, swinging round with just your hands and then inverting your body and holding it there. This might sound impossible if you're new to it, but because of the intensity, you'll be joining right in before you know it. Pole dancers gain strength very quickly! You'll notice your improved strength almost instantly.
Wanting to loosen up and work on your stretch? One of pole and hoops health benefits are increased flexibility. Flexibility has many benefits itself, but the main benefit for us is that it reduces risk of muscle injury and it minimizes muscle soreness! Our Flex classes have an increased focus on flexibility, so you'll be bending over backwards and touching your toes before you know it!
Like pole, Aerial Hoop has a huge range of health benefits. Firstly it targets your core and upper body as you'll be lifting your legs up and through the hoop. It'll also improve your core stability and your overall strength as you get into the moves and sustain them. As you get better at sustaining the moves, this will increase your balance too, and overall endurance. From your first class with our amazing Hoop instructor, you'll see just how flexible you can become with hoop too, which will lead to better joint mobility.
After a few months of pole dancing, you’ll definitely notice a change in your body. You’ll be stronger, your muscles will feel firmer and you’ll be less fatigued. With this comes increased body confidence.
You’ll soon start to be able to wear clothes which cling to parts of your body you’d never dream of showing off before. That really is a wonderful feeling and with a regular pole workout, you’ll feel more body confident in no time, and what better way to flaunt your new found confidence than with a heels routine! All the benefits of pole fitness, with more of a focus on routines, looking and feeling amazing and, of course, body rolls!
When you learn pole dancing you’ll most likely want to put all of your spins and moves together into a routine. Part of the fun of pole dancing is finding the perfect song, picking your best moves and choreographing them with your personal style. This in itself is a whole new skill though, one that you'll learn with Pole Flow! Don’t worry if you feel clumsy or as if you have ‘two left feet’. Your natural rhythm and style will come with practice and with a few tips from our expert instructor!
Strengthen pretty much every muscle in your arms, your shoulders and your entire upper body. Handstands are one of the most beneficial upper body exercise you can do. By keeping upright you have to stabilise your muscles, so they not only work on your upper body and abs, but they also strengthen your hip flexors, hamstrings, inner thighs and spinal muscles to create a balanced and extra strong core! They also benefit your spine, increase bone health in your wrists, arms and shoulders, and stretch your diaphragm, your main breathing muscle, which in turn increases blood flow to your lungs. Grab all of this healthy strengthy goodness with one of our Handstand Workshops!
