PoleKat Fitness FAQ

Are there any rules?

No shoes are allowed. Please also remove all jewellery, especially rings as these scratch the poles. Although it's not a 'rule', it is recommended that you do not moisturise for at least 24 hours before taking part in a pole class, as it will make it much more difficult to grip the pole.

Can guys take part?

Yes! Actually, the upper body strength many men possess makes them amazing polers, especially on advanced holds & tricks.

Does it hurt?

All aerial sports can hurt a bit to start with, but it does get easier the more you practice! Even the fittest of people find that they ache a couple of days after a pole dancing session. This is because you use muscles that you don't usually use.  You may also get a few small bruises - this is completely normal! They usually last for about for about 3 days and the more you practice, the less you bruise.

Is it safe?

Yes! All circus and aerial sports involve an element of risk, but we use the best equipment on the market and our instructors are trained and qualified to the highest standards. Safety mats are always used in training and an instructor will always be around to spot you (we are very good at catching!)

Are there any age limits?

No - everyone is welcome! Our kids classes cater for 4 to 14 year-olds, and our adult classes for over 14s (participants under 18 must sign a waiver form if attending an adult class).

Am I too unfit/overweight?

Fitness is not really an issue, as you will get fitter the more you practice, but be aware that you might find it difficult to start. All equipment (poles and hoops) are fully weight-bearing and safety-tested, so weight is not an issue.

Is it stripping/lap dancing?

No! Pole fitness aims to move away from the 'sleazy' stereotype. It is about having fun and working out. You will never be made to do anything you feel uncomfortable with.
