Stop the diet today and replace the whole concept...

I am a chocoholic with a six pack! 

Granted I do plenty of exercise and this is exactly my point. 
Because of exercise we can all not only eat, but really enjoy food too.

Pole Fitness Studios
Exercise naturally encourages us to do more exercise plus eat more and healthier food.

If you allocate more time to activities like Pole Fitness you will not only eat less because you are at the gym but also want to eat healthier due to needing the extra nutrition when you are finished.

You also boost your serotonin and endorphin levels making you happier and therefore more willing to want to eat the better option at the time.

Regularly do a food plan overhaul. Replace unhealthy or simply add yummy healthy stuff to the cupboard.

Dried fruit, fresh berries and nuts plus nutrient enriched foods (e.g. spinach, chia seeds) into your daily Smoothy. 

Continue to mix up your dinner choices making them a little healthier each time.

Be aware of what you eat all week and give yourself a well deserved lush break when you need to. Reward is the essence of success.

Choose foods that boost your energy and help get you moving!

Vertical pole gymnastics is a thorough and fun exercise plan guaranteed to change your habits for the better.

Become a chocoholic with a six pack! 

Pole exercise every week means you can have your cake and eat it too!

Is the community selfish or ignorant to the Pole facts...

Pole dancing is simply not appropriate for kids.
However vertical pole gymnastics is fantastic; for everyone.

Sofia, a student of mine, is 8 years old.
She did a perfect Half Split Hold with no hands and Flips, Climbs and Locks, like a gymnast champion.

Sofia has absolutely loved the Pole Fitness Studios program for 2 years now and is now at Squad level gymnastics because of her pole skill set and the gymnastic grooming it offers.

No Handed Half Split

I would never incorporate any kind of dance when instructing pole gymnastics (especially not striptease or erotic dance).

These are two individual movement patterns/types (dance and pole)... Combining them creates convolution, the students complete understanding of why, how, when and what they are doing on the pole is gravely effected.

Sofia is already combining some of the hundreds of pole exercises available, into amazing freestyle routines for fun, keeping her fitness training for longer periods of time while in class and completely engaged; May I remind you she is 8.

Gymnastic skills are basics motor skills, our most important requirement to practice, for all of us but especially kids when initially learning them.

Because people chose to combine these two skills (dance and pole), this does not define the pole, instead enhances the clarity between what pole product is for adults only and then appropriate for fitness and kids.

Here are examples of pole gymnastics in other countries...
