Ever wanted to pole dance? Try this new fitness craze
I may run most days, but don't let this fool you, I'm still an un-coordinated and weak human being, when it comes to fitness. With that being said, I had always wanted to try pole dancing. Many of my other friends raved about how fun it was, and would show me their flat abs (enough said, I was at the next class). I get pretty nervous trying new things, especially when it comes to the body, poles and fitness, but I went with my best friend, so she controlled my nerves and after six trips to the toilet, I was standing in the back of the class with my designated pole. The first class I attended was called "Pole Fit".

Our instructor had an amazing figure, which also provided for some inspiration, like if I do this one class, I will end up with a body like that (if only it was that easy).

The music started and the other girls got straight into warming up, my friend and I looked a bit like lost truck drivers at this stage. The instructor helped us through the warm up and was really patient with our lack of skill. I was stoked my friend was on the same level as me, so we could both look stupid together, but then came the actual pole stage and boy, was I bad. I came to a sad realisation that I have no upper arm strength and that's what will get you around on a pole. My friend on the other hand, was all over it, climbing up and spinning around like a pro. I still gave it my all, but it was a little embarrassing to not even be able to lift myself up off the ground. Again the instructor said this was normal for a first lesson (maybe she was just being nice) and was really encouraging.

We did lots of sit ups, squats and ground work, which was right up my alley and I was starting to really enjoy myself. There's no better feeling then knowing you are working your body hard, that's exactly what you want from a class like this. The warm down was relaxing, after all that hard work.

My only complaint (this is mainly due to my low self-esteem), was that the room was filled with mirrors, so you were constantly looking at yourself. I understand why they have it set up that way, so you can watch yourself and work on what needs improving, but for a beginners, it's rather intimidating.

Other than that, it was a great experience and an awesome way to get fit. You work on your bum, abs, legs and arms all in one work out. I recommend it to anyone wanting to get fit and do something a little different. They offer casual classes and courses. The pricing depends on the class or course you decide to undertake, but can be found on there website, Pole Blitz.
