Pole dancing has now lost its sleazy image and is rapidly becoming a very popular trend in exercise classes. Lots of women are taking up pole dancing as a means of getting fit and having fun. Some enjoy it so much they are even having a pole installed in their own home so that they can practise more! Here are some great reasons to learn pole dancing.
Improving your fitness is one of the top reasons to learn pole dancing. If you´re looking for a challenging workout, this could be just what you´re looking for. It´ll do amazing things for your upper body strength and overall flexibility. Try it if you find that regular gym workouts don´t really motivate you.
Have you ever watched a pole dancing routine and thought ´I could never do that!´? Sure, it takes a lot of practice for professional dancers to reach the level of skills they possess, but you don´t have to aspire to the same level. What you can achieve is to increase your agility and flexibility.
Taking a pole dancing class can be a great deal of fun. You´re more likely to stick at a workout if you enjoy it, and as long as you´re prepared to laugh at your early attempts then you doubtless will have fun. Take a friend if you´re shy – you can both have a good laugh!
Pole dancing doesn´t have to be done purely to entertain men. As many women are discovering, it can bring out your sexy side. Sexuality isn´t just about our relationship with a partner; we can also just enjoy our feminine side for ourselves. Though as a bonus, that could give your relationship a boost as well!
Pole dancing is different in many ways from most exercise classes. It might not even seem like exercise at all (before the class anyway – it almost certainly will afterwards!). Trying something different is a great way to rediscover an enthusiasm for working out if you´ve been losing your motivation.
6. Muscle Building
Depending on the moves you practise, a pole dancing workout can exercise just about every muscle in your body. Just think how much strength a dancer needs to pull herself up the pole! As you become more advanced, the muscles get an even greater workout. But you won´t end up looking like a body builder!
As pole dancing has entered the mainstream, it´s become something that everyone can enjoy watching. There are lots of videos on Youtube showing the extraordinary skills that some dancers have mastered. For a brilliant example of just how skilful and amazing pole dancing can be, check out Jenyne Butterfly; see this video for example:youtube.com
We might not all be able to acquire the athletic abilities of dancers like Jenyne, but I have given you lots of great reasons to learn pole dancing. After all, we can´t all be the best at something, but we can sure enjoy it! Would you love to learn pole dancing, and if so, what´s stopping you?
