Try Pole Dancing to Jazz Up Your Workout

A new form of exercise has entered the market: Pole Dancing! It is not what you think! There is no stripping involved. There is no exotic teasing. It is just a great mixed of dancing moves to jazz up a boring work out!

Many women from all sorts of life have testified to this new trend, including lawyers, dentists, doctors, nurses, and engineers.

These women said that with pole dancing, you are building strong arms, shoulders, and the upper part of your body. You are doing the pull-ups and sit-ups on a vertical pole. You are toning every muscle in your body. Of course, pole dancing can also empower the feeling of being sexy, and there is nothing wrong with feeling sexy.

While using pole dancing as an exercise art form, you are wearing comfortable yoga outfits, not the type of performance skimpy clothes at the night clubs. The first four weeks of pole dancing, patrons are advised to go barefoot, and high heel shoes will be introduced later in to the program. Pole dancing offers a new way to exercise, and break away from the regular workout routines.

Moves of Pole Dancing

Pole Addiction in Ferndale, Michigan offers the following moves. It is one of the hottest locations around town.
• The Venus
• The Fireman
• The Princess
• Gorgeous
• The Dislocator
• Hurkey Swing
• The Ally Oop

Though I really don’t know what all of these moves are about, but the Ally Oop is said to be the gravity-defined move because they had a 96 year-old client on the pole at the grand opening. The beginner course includes more than 40 moves, and they also teach the Burlesque dance.

You can learn a bit about the Burlesque dance class on YouTube here:

Fitness has changed over time, and pole dancing offers “outside-the-box” experiences for people who are looking for different ways to jazz up their workout. If you are brave and daring enough, try pole dancing!
