FAQs

You have probably got a whole load of questions, but here are the answers to the main things that people ask .....

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR ??

  • SHORTS AND A SHORT SLEEVED OR VEST TOP for the main part of the class/session - skin contact to the pole is essential for grip
  • TRAINERS for the warm up, bare feet or trainers or dance shoes for the main part of the workout
  • NO JEWELLERY, especially rings as these items can scratch the poles, and other items, such as necklaces and bracelets, could pose a danger of entanglement
  • NO BODY LOTIONS, FAKE TANS OR CREAMS - these can transfer onto the poles and make them slippery

ARE THERE ANY AGE LIMITS ??

You must be 18 years of age or older to attend pole fitness classes and sessions with polein2fitness.

There is no upper age limit - age is all in the mind, you're as old as you feel!

ARE THERE ANY HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS??

If you are in general good health, then pole fitness will be suitable for you.

You will be asked to complete a short health questionnaire - please do this honestly so the instructor is fully informed of any issues and can give you best advice and alternative exercises if necessary.

Pole fitness is not suitable for pregnant women.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS??

With any activity there is an element of risk, and pole fitness is no different.  Please be aware of the following:

  • Bruises - the pole is metal and body parts may bump into the pole causing bruises
  • Pole friction (chaffing) /pole burn caused by the gripping the pole too tightly as you spin
  • Slipping - if you get hot or have very sweaty hands this can make it harder to grip
  • Other people - they will be spinning round the pole so keep a safe distance away
  • Floor surfaces - be aware of any objects or dampness, especially during floor-work

Every effort is made to make your classes and sessions as safe and enjoyable as possible. 

However, you are also responsible for your own safety, so listen carefully to all instructions and listen to your own body.  If something doesn't feel right for you then alternatives can be provided if you tell the instructor.

If at any time you wish to withdraw from the session you are free to do so.

ALCOHOL POLICY

In order to ensure safety at all times you will not be allowed to participate in a session if you have taken alcohol - your session fee will not be refunded in these circumstances.

WARNING: Pole fitness is addictive - once you try it you'll be hooked!!!!!
