What is Pole Fitness…
Pole Fitness (or Pole Dance) is a fun and rewarding form of exercise. Using your body weight to your advantage, you can build up strength, tone your whole body, and burn calories quickly. A relative of the horizontal beam used by gymnasts, the vertical pole is a more user-friendly, but still highly effective method of getting and staying in shape.
You don’t have to fit into any specific criteria to try pole – ladies and gents of all shapes, sizes and even ages can have a go. And when you consider how monotonous many gym/exercise classes can be, Pole Fitness classes with Halo always take place in a fun environment where laughter is plentiful!
We pride ourselves in how friendly and welcoming our classes are. We have a lovely group of students and you are guaranteed to feel at home from the moment walk through the door.
Benefits of Pole –
*Burns as many calories as a normal gym class
*Increases muscular strength
*Increases muscle tone
*Can aid with weight loss
*Make new friends and become part of a family rather than just a participant of a class.
Class numbers are restricted to ensure you get the most out of your classes – more time on the pole and less time waiting for your turn.
Private lessons are also available if you want to try our pole on your own or with a friend before joining in a group class.
What to wear –
For your first couple of classes you will be ok to wear leggings or jogging bottoms with a t-shirt or vest top. After that shorts are preferred as you will be learning moves that require skin contact to enable you to grip the pole. Footwear – trainers or bare feet. Please remove all jewellery before class and do not moisturise on the day of your class.
