Why do people get 'Vertical Pole Gymnastics' and 'Pole Dancing' confused?

It's easy to understand why, when Pole Dancers of the past few decades, have been adding more and more gymnastics to the vertical pole, they are already swinging on.

Mixing the adult striptease dance style, together with any other activity, does not taint that activity forever, rather highlighting it... In the case of our Pole Fitness Industry causing mass confusion and recognition for vertical pole gymnastics, the existing sport!

When Indian Mallahkamb and Chinese Pole were here first, it would be simply disrespectful to not recognize the Pole Fitness Industry independently from striptease or Pole Dancing; being the combination of both.
Be aware of Pole Dance studios cashing in on the respectable vertical pole gymnastics Fitness Industry

Best to know if you are going to a Vertical Pole Gymnastics class, or an adult Industry Pole Dancing class... a niche market place and particular taste level... Wearing high heels, offering burlesque, lap dancing classes, mixing in striptease dance moves with some pole gymnastics.

Why mix dance into your pole fitness Regime when there are thousands of amazing pole gymnastics exercises to learn and master?! 

We need to concentrate on the fundamentals of these aerodynamic pole exercises, individually, to really master them safely. Naturally broadening the range of  gymnastic exercises to workout with and display!

Mix with any other stuff, if you desire  (e.g. any dance style or flame throwing, playing an instrument etc.) easily, after you have mastered the pole gym skills!

What is the best exercise for a flat tummy...

Handstands! Do not stop reading cause you won't need to start on your hands...

Vertical Pole gymnastics has a huge range of Handstand variations and the pole offers stability while practicing your form and strengthening up.

Triangle Headstand
with Layout Leg Line
A Triangle Forearm or Headstand up against a wall, are all great ways to start.

Once mastered, Handstands have wonderful floaty feeling and insure abs of steel, so worth the hurdles and practice it takes to get there!

Balance is the key to core strength.

Do some research prior to starting - Be wary of correct hands, elbow and arm set ups and correct head placements.

Here are some Handstand tips...

with Z Leg Extension 
      1. Think of your hands/arm placements as, the foundation therefore must be perfectly aligned.
      2. To build or stack, your shoulders and hips, over the foundation, you must be looking at the foundation.
      3. Point your toes and keep feet/heels together to finish in a Dish gymnastics body shape.
The pole is an amazing balance aid and after choosing an arm foundation/style, I recommend Triangle or/& Straddle Leg Entrance to start practicing.

Did you see Got To Dance UK Reload gave the male pole gymnast 3 gold stars...

How do they compare dance skills, to gymnastic apparatus movements?

The fact they allowed vertical pole to be on a dance show is simply unfair.

He started with a dramatic, No Handed Yoga Sit Pole Mount and froze another pole exercise set up, in time to the next music break however he didn't include any 'dance'...

No Handed Flat Foot Yoga Sit
Vertical Pole Gymnastics
No Handed Flat Foot Yoga Sit
He did demonstrate some great vertical pole gymnastic skills but the next female dancer executes a sequence of floor flips, that are much harder!

Plus that same dance groups timing was amazing and the natural body elevation achieved, when doing synchronized jumps up off the floor was simply not comparable!

Comparing dance to pole gymnastics is like comparing apple to oranges; both are a form of human movement but not the same category or style. 

Pole Gymnastics is commonly mistaken for pole dancing because it's often mixed together e.g. Pole dancing is actually 'dance' mixed together with pole gymnastics x;)

I find it hard to understand their Judging methods, when allowing other movement categories (especially that include apparatus) onto a dance show.

I can see why +Ashley Judd, Kimberly or Allen Did Not pick the male "pole dancer" for their teams, when faced with truly having to judge the dancing elements and therefore finding themselves comparing a pole gymnast to a floor dancer... Apple to Oranges!?

Do you think a Pole Dancing belongs on Got to Dance UK Reload 2014?

Pole Fitness Industry; have you done your TM homework?

It's imperative to be aware of who owns what trademark, prior to starting a new business or you will be risking not just your reputation... 

Legal costs, advertising expenses, loss of all existing marketing materials and correcting this common mistake, wastes precious business time. 

Trademark and copyright ownership's are not always well advertised and when in violation.. All costs incurred, are paid by you, the violator!

IP & Trademark ownership is individual to each country on a first in, first served basis and has nothing to do with purchasing URL's or your Business Name Registration.
Angela Perry - Vertical Pole Gymnastics
Trademark number... 1219684

This means you are still able to gain ownership of these things but not legally allowed to advertise them.

Example; Australian businesses already own...

You are breaking the law if you advertise any trademark owned by another or use protected intellectual property. 

Reminder - The infringement penalty includes fines and all legal expenses to be paid by the those who do the wrong thing.

Did you know these Pole Fitness(c) Trade Marks existed?

Steph Magiros displays beautiful Pole Fitness progression!

Olympic Gymnast Champion Stephanie Magiros ripped up the pole in our climbing session this week...

There was a small change she made, that did make a big difference... Pole Gloves!

Taking the edge off, for the many Poler's out there, who have excessive sweaty hand issues

Pole Fitness Studios and Steph Magiros highly recommend to use the patent leather gloves (shiny not flat finish) for best sticking performance.

For excessive sweaty feet issues, I recommend Dry Hands lightly rubbed on the pole.

A small amount of Dry hands is fantastic on your hands, back of knees and inside elbows to enhance stick and Pole Fitness performance.

However pole enhancement products or gloves do not compensate for correct technique and perfect form. 

Making me extremely proud of Steph's excellent vertical pole gymnastics progression this week!

Why vertical pole gymnastics is the mother of all fitness?!

Human balance is limited to our bodies 'natural balance radius' meaning, unassisted, we will fall over if we go beyond or outside of it...

Martial artist use their sword to increase this range of balance, we use the vertical pole.

                                  "Stretching is the key to life"

Maximizing balance range, increases speed therefore power upon impact!

Stretching strengthens the small muscle groups supporting the joints and shreds large muscle mass, toning your body all over and protecting your joints.

Having more flexible joints means you are less likely to break a kneecap or bone if an accidental slip or fall occurs. 

Waste no time with pole... an excellent strength building tool at the same time as maximizing your stretching, amplifying any fitness regime.

Align your spine, relieve back pain, enhance co-ordination and timing with so much to offer in one fun class, Vertical pole gymnastics is simply awesome.

Have you tried a class, with no dance at all, purely pole gymnastics?
