How and why did you first get interested in pole dancing?
A class started in my local gym and it sounded fun, so I signed up as soon as I could even though I was so NERVOUS!

2.What was your first lesson like? How did you feel?
From the minute I started i loved it, it was an hour long full on exercise class, I felt like i was going to collapse but I was enjoying it so much I couldn't stop.

3.What is it about pole dancing that you enjoy the most?
I enjoyed the way i was being tested physically but it was still fun, I was working out so intensely but it didn't really feel like it when dancing on the pole.

4.What are the main fitness benefits of pole dancing? what benefits or changes to your body shape have you noticed?
I was so bursting of energy the next morning even if my muscles were a little bit sore (I hadn't worked out much before I started pole fitness). My body toned up so quickly, my skin was so clear and my hair was lovely and shiny within days I actually saw results the same week!! I didn't diet or change anything else, but every week I was so excited about the classes (not something you expect to hear about a gym class) it was like a girly get together. A a few of us actually decided to go a few times a week so we requested the use of the room so we could practice more :)

5.What are your 3 favourite pole moves?
Carousel Straddle, Cork Screw and the sun wheel (the most fun)

6.What pole performers do you admire or inspire you?
Arlene Caffrey of the Irish pole dancing Academy she is fantastic!

7.Would you recommend pole dancing and why?
It's the most fun I have EVER HAD getting fit, it made me more confident and out going and I loved my body toned and sculpted perfectly also it wasn't very expensive it toned my whole body. Pole fitness targets all areas of the body and everyone I meet I tell how great it is.  I am a happier, healthier me all thanks to pole fitness.
