It went pretty good – I ended up going from about 7-8 inches off the floor to a full split in about 8-9 months. What you have to understand though is that I was consistent – every week I made time for that shit because I had A GOAL (drop splits, ya bish).Read More
I basically just pour a bunch of stuff in a crock pot and then turn it on. Oh, I mix it, too. Can't forget to mix it.
I even made a video of exactly what to do. I’ll post the ingredients I use, too if you’re too lazy to watch the video (but watch it, mmkay! I did make it and edit it for you all, you’re very welcome.)Read More
Ever had a vision of yourself as a super-confident badass, able to handle anything that comes their way? Ever dreamed of yourself as being an unstoppable force on the pole that people can’t take their eyes off of?
Our struggles are what form us into these strong and beautiful people we aspire to be.Read More
People love to wax poetic about how everyone should strive to "live authentically" but no one really talks about the fact that when you do that, you open yourself up to people that will strike at that vulnerability (and living authentically means being vulnerable).
The upside to living a real life (meaning you are an outward expression of more than just your socially acceptable persona) is that you will have many people that adore you. And you must live authentically if you want to ever be happy. Being happy and being hated are not mutually exclusive.Read More
Let’s say you’re a solid Level 2 student. Been taking classes religiously every week and you feel strong, solid and supremely confident. You know what time it is when you start to feel so good, so confident of your abilities?
It’s time to feel like a hot mess again.Read More
Yeah, I get it. There’s always gonna be something that bugs you or a reason why you can’t feel good. And this is exactly the reason why most – yes MOST – pole dancers aren’t where they want to be in their practice: they allow “reasons” to get in front of their success.
Guess what? Those gals you look up to and wanna be like on the pole don’t let “reasons” get in the way of their dreams.Read More
How many times have you arrived at the pole studio for class and dug frantically through your bag, only to realize that you left your kneepads (or shorts, or shoes, or grip aid!) at home? The ideal solution to this dilemma is to keep your pole bag stocked with the essentials. The necessities to bring to every pole class are:Read More
Whatever reasons your brain is coming up with as to why you shouldn’t just pull the trigger and sign up, there are a ton more reasons that you should. We’ve made a list of the top 5 reasons for not walking in to that first pole dance class and we are going to tell you why you shouldn’t believe in these limitations.Read More
"How quickly things can change when you just keep going," I thought. I didn't just think this thought, though - I felt it. What an incredible feeling, what...possibility.
And not remote possibility or the promise of possibility - there was a feel-it-in-my-gut tangibility that had happened practically overnight that felt quite miraculous. I loved that feeling/thought and I reveled in it for a good few days. Still am, actually.Read More
I felt like I didn't know where to put my arms and legs and how to position my body, I felt physically hot from being a little nervous, and I felt what it feels like to have the thought, "I'm NEVER going to get this."Read More
You are about to step out of your comfort zone and try something new that is beneficial for your body, mind, and soul. Second, it would be sorta nice to know what to expect as you begin what will hopefully be a longstanding and beautiful relationship with a tall, shiny, chrome pole, right??Read More
Pole Dance Instructors are very talented and skilled at making women feel comfortable and safe. It's normal to not know what to expect and to feel nervous and scared at first, but don't let that prevent you from taking your first pole fitness class.Read More
This statement sums up the paradox facing many students new to pole fitness. Yes, while you may currently lack the upper body strength it takes to execute many of the pole tricks or spins you see posted daily on IG, that in NO way means you aren’t physically ready to begin taking classes.
