There is this new trending workout called Pole Dancing. I am sure that you have heard of it before. I found myself looking through the deals on Groupon when my friend approached me with this amazing deal: 5 Pole Dancing classes for $30 at Studio X located in Fayetteville, right down the street from my work! I am no stripper, but it sounded like fun to learn their moves. I have heard that it is a wonderful workout and I am always up for trying new things. After many cancellations and not being able to find a babysitter, I found myself (alone) at my first pole dancing class. I was nervous and thankful that the lights were dimmed. As I walked into the class, I started chatting with the other ladies and learned it was their first time, too! Talk about a breath of fresh air! Our instructor, who was previously in a T-shirt and jeans, whipped off her clothes, and we were ready to begin. We started off with some stretches on the pole that felt more like yoga, and then begin to learn our sexy stripper walk. It is a little odd walking sexy when you’re in the room with other women, but I did it anyways. After learning the fireman, the martini, and the pretzel, I almost felt like a pro on the pole! If only I got paid. By the end of the hour, I was dripping in sweat and my body was worked. When I got home, of course my husband wanted to see the moves I learned, but we unfortunately don’t have a pole in our home. I had to show him using the wall. It was weird, not sexy, and hilarious. Needless to say, the next class I am going to will be learning how to Chair Dance! If you are in the local Fayetteville area, check out Studio X Pole Fitness!! I would suggest Intro to Pole as your first class!
