Do I need to have upper body strength to pole dance?
Pole Fitness does require a lot of upper body strength. But don't worry
if you don't have any now, you will build the strength and muscle faster
than you can imagine!
What should I wear to class?
We recommend wearing shorts and a tank top to class. The more skin that you have exposed the better grip you will have on the pole. Clothing makes you slip and not grip the pole well, so for safety reasons you will want to have more skin exposure. More advanced students tend to wear shorts and a sports bra as they progress into more advanced pole movements that require more underarm and side grip.
Should I bring shoes?
We typically practice barefoot for Intro to Pole but upon completion of Intro to Pole, you may wear stiletto heels. No wedges are allowed please.
Is there a weight limit?
The recommended weight limit for Xpole poles is 250lbs- 300lbs. However, there are other dance and floor moves that you can still do without climbing on the pole.
Is there an age limit?
Ages ranges from 18 years to 60 years of age. Pole fitness is Great for the Mind, Body and Soul.
Do I need prior experience?
You do not need any prior experience before your first pole class. Our Intro to Pole class is the perfect place to start if you are new to pole! You will begin to learn how to become one with the pole.
How many students are in class?
We allow a maximum of 7 students per class to accommodate enough pole and time for each person to participate. Unless otherwise specified.
Do the poles spin?
The poles can be set to either static or spinning mode. As a beginner you will start with the pole on static to ensure that you are safe and comfortable on the pole. Once you are comfortable and we feel it is safe, we will progress you to spinning pole.
Should I do pole fitness on a full stomach?
No. We recommend waiting at least an hour after you’ve eaten before attending a class so you can give your best effort.
Can I bring someone along to watch my class?
No. We ask that you come alone unless the person accompanying you is paying for a class as well.
