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 can be a high-intensity sport. For this reason, we do not allow new students to begin taking pole classes with us if they are pregnant. If you are less than 8 weeks post-partum, had recent surgery, or have an existing injury , we recommend consulting with your physician prior to engaging in pole fitness. (A medical certificate may be required.)

WHAT TO WEAR
We recommend wearing a sleeveless top, and gym shorts. Tights are not recommended as you need your legs exposed to grip to the pole. Feel free to wear your gym attire underneath clothing for the warm-up portion of class. Clothing with metal embellishments, rings, bracelets, and anklets are prohibited to be worn during class as they damage our poles and can be hazardous to the wearer.

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.
