pole changed my life :) new friends who are like having a new family, confidence, toning and muscle dedinition. being able to laugh at myself and not take myself too seriously. being able to help others with moves. only wish I had started sooner!!!
Pole dancing has improved my body confidence. I may not have the body I’ve always dreamed of, but I know I am physically stronger and more toned than I have ever been.
I have made lots of new friends from class. We are all very supportive of each other and encourage each other when moves prove difficult to achieve. We all refer to each other as ‘The Pole Sisters’ or our Pole Family.
Pole has been such a positive influence on my personal life and I only wish I started this years ago.
Pole fitness is an amazing and understated fitness regime I absolutely love!!! After years of martial arts I didn’t expect swinging round a pole to do much …. OMG I was wrong its a beautiful elegant mix of strength, flexibility and hard work!!!
I am a pole freak with respect and admiration for all pole enthusiasts at any level …
What pole has done for me hmmm mostly it has got me out of the house meeting new people and given me something for me ,and something that makes me smile and laugh which is just what I need . This is my treat every week my break from living with someone with autism one thing I have that’s mine , I may not be that good and may never be but the people who are in my class make it fun and are always encouraging me . So yes pole has done a lot for me besides making me stronger and getting me fitter I love it wish I had started years ago
Pole fitness has gave me so much confidence. Even when I’m covered in bruises off it I don’t care. It’s a break from my stressful uni life and I have made so many new friends. My body looks great and I’m starting to get fit and toned. One of the best things I’ve ever done
A long with the fitness side of things, pole has given me so much confidence to chase my dreams that it kept me in university. It taught me that the goal is always within reach as long as you work hard enough. Pole is everything to me now <3
In 2006, I went to a pole lesson just to prove to myself that I could do something different – even it if was just once! in my life – I was in my mid 40s!
Clearly that was 8 years ago – how has pole changed my life:-
I’ve continued to learn some incredible moves which have contributed to giving me a better body image – I am physically stronger and more toned but I always feel better about the body I have.
I qualified as an instructor in 2009 and started Princess K Fitness which now has 4 instructors, including me, teaching up to 10 classes each week.
I’ve met some incredible people on my journey too – students have become friends, fellow pole instructors have become mentors and I enjoy a great ‘pole’ support network.
Pole has given me inner confidence, a stronger body, new friends and an extra income – what’s not to love about it!
Pole is amazing!!!!
It is my highlight of the week, it’s what I look forward to the most, all the new exciting moves and challenges I’ve over come that I never thought possible…
It’s made me stronger and realise you haven’t got to be skinny to do it, my body is able to do certain moves I never thought possible!
I haven’t got to look and wish I could do it anymore, because I can and I am… I have the most amazing, talented instructors who couldn’t be more lovely!!
I’ve been doing pole for about 18 weeks and I’m highly addicted…
Pole dancing has improved my confidence and given me passion for someone I wouldn’t normally have.
Pole dancing has changed my whole body, from toned arms and back to a stronger core. It’s also given me confidence about my abilities and looks. Starting in my late 30s with a group of younger women and seeing that I can perform just as well has been an incredible experience. Now at 43 I feel and hopefully look younger than a lot of my peers. Pole dancing rocks!
