Pole Dancing For Fitness

Why choose pole dancing for fitness over the countless other fitness options available? Two words… It’s fun!

That’s my answer, it’s fun. If you haven’t tried it you don’t know what you’re missing. In what other sport can you fly through the air like peter pan or twirl around in the air feeling almost weightless? Maybe in gymnastics or acrobatics, but that is not necessarily easy for people of all body types and fitness levels. Nor is it as accessible as pole dancing for exercise.

That is what I love about pole dancing as a sport and exercise form. No matter your fitness level, size, or shape there is a pole dance spin for you. There are so many beginner level spins that are suitable for everyone to try. Think spinning around a pole like a fireman would on the way to a call.

Most beginner level spins do require some balance, coordination, and strength, but with a little practice even a novice pole fitness fan can conquer them all. I encourage all women to try pole dancing as an exercise form at least once during their quest for fun in their fitness.

Pole Dancing Fitness Craze

Pole dancing women were once only found in men’s clubs and strip clubs, but those days are long gone. Pole dancing has emerged as the latest fitness craze. These days women, and men alike (especially in other countries), can be found tackling pole dance moves. Pole dancing for fitness usually combines several forms of exercise to form a unique routine. Typical pole dance workouts might include pole moves with some of the following: dance, yoga, aerobics, and strength training. A guaranteed component is fun!

Pole dancing for exercise allows women to leave their inhibitions at the door, embrace their sexiness, and build their confidence at all once. Women walk into the studio, with beats thumping, music pumping, and they can’t help but get in the groove. Women embrace their bodies and move in a sensual way that helps them to remember why they love their bodies so much.

Then when they are fully pumped up, they can move on to the more challenging and endurance-building aspects of a pole fitness workout. They get to really push themselves and use all of their bodies muscles at the same time. Sometimes they awaken muscles they forgot they had, but it feels so good…they wouldn’t dare stop.

Next they work on taking those moves and making them their own. Putting theiron unique twist on them and putting their own creative spin on them. Twirling and whirling around the pole like a couple of kids on the playground after school. They let loose and get caught up in the moment and do it all for themselves…for their own well-being.

Finally, they slow it down and cool it down. A few more tantalizing moves that remind them how great it is to be a woman. They relish in the fact that they just performed a whole body workout and didn’t even realize they were doing it, it was just fun!

This is why pole dancing for fitness is the latest rage. When the daily grind of life gets to be a bit much, women everywhere want to scream timeout and get a moment in for themselves. Nothing is better than a workout that’s good for the body, mind, and the soul!
