First of all, pole dancing is fun. Let’s face it, the gym can be boring. Doing the same workout routines day after day and week after week gets stale really fast. It is really tough to motivate yourself to stay in shape if you don’t enjoy it. Pole dancing workouts are meant to be fun. Once you get more comfortable with the workouts, you’ll find yourself “letting go” and just moving with the music and exploring the pole with your body. If you ever get a chance to see a pole dancing fitness class, watch the women closely. They are usually all smiling and having a great time. Pole dancing, to put it simply, doesn’t feel like working out. Just like the old saying: “time flies when you are having fun!”
Also, many of these traditional workouts target specific areas of the body. So not only do you get a boring routine, you also get one that only benefits a small portion of your body. Pole dancing is great for toning your whole body and building up muscle endurance. You’ll find that it is a very nice combination of Pilates and Ballet. It is also a great calorie burner. You can expect to burn between 300 and 400 calories if you are just starting out and can burn up to 700 in one class once you have a bit more experience.
