INFORMATION & FAQ's
For absolute first time beginners we recommend booking one of our Beginner classes! Please refer to our TIMETABLE for our current schedule. IF for any reason you cannot attend a beginner class, you may attend any of our other scheduled classes - just let your instructor know your new to Pole! x During a typical class, we will cover warm up, 1 on 1 training, instructor demonstrations, and a cool down stretch.
FITNESS & HEALTH REQUIREMENTS
You do not need to be flexible or fit to participate! However, those with medical conditions or other health restrictions should consult with their physician prior to registering for a class and inform staff to avoid disappointment. PREGNANCY: Pole fitness is considered to be an extreme sport. For this reason, we advise against introducing new & unfamiliar fitness activities while pregnant. Unfortunately, we cannot allow new students to begin with us for health and safety reasons during their pregnancy. If you are less than 3 months postnatal or had a recent surgery or injury within 3 months, we will require a medical certificate to clear you for all physical activities.
All classes require a reservation. To book & Pay for classes, you can do so on our website, or on the Mindbody App [Link to download app/book classes: www.polefitmackay.com.au/booknow ]

We are located at 93 Victoria Street, Mackay CBD. (Diagonally across the street from the public library!)
PLEASE kindly give at least 12 hours notice if you are unable to attend to avoid loosing your class credit. This is enforced as a courtesy to your instructor and fellow students.
WHAT TO WEAR
We recommend Gym shorts and a sleeveless top, you will need your legs exposed to grip to the pole so tights are not recommended for pole classes. Please feel free to wear pole attire underneath clothing as you may wish to warm up with additional clothing. PLEASE refrain from wearing clothing with metal embellishments, rings, bracelets, anklets, ect as you will not only cause damage to these items, but they will also damage our poles. For your own safety, avoid using oily moisturizers on the day of your class.

Students are permitted bring their own yoga mats/gym towels IF desired. We do have mats available for use and clean cloths/spray bottles will be provided for cleaning & wiping down all our equipment. Please also bring sufficient water for yourself to stay hydrated.

We understand you may have additional concerns holding you back, so we've put together a few common misconceptions about Pole Fitness we would like to address!
"I am not very fit or coordinated.. I doubt I'd be successful."
We Say: You can be! Fitness and Coordination are achieved progressively through lessons. Our Level 1 curriculum is designed for absolute beginners who have never done pole before. You do not need to be fit or flexible to start!
In fact, we conmanly hear new students say they have NO fitness experience at all.
"I need to loose weight first, I am too body conscious and/or I'm shy.."
We Say: It is completely normal to feel this way, but please don't let this stop you from giving it a try! Students often comment how much confidence they have gained since they first started! You don't need to be outgoing, or have any specific body type to start.
ALL BODIES ARE WELCOME AND ACCEPTED BY US. Xx
"Pole Dancing is just for Girls.."
We Say: On the contrary! We sometimes have men join our classes too. Men's pole dancing is becoming increasingly popular around the world as a fitness alternative for Men, and the results speak for themselves.
We do not exclude anybody from our public classes, provided they meet minimum age/health restrictions and follow our community guidelines.
