As pole dancers we love our workouts, we’re all in agreement pole is fun and highly addictive! We love what it does to our body’s, we love the excitement it brings when nailing new moves, we love feeling strong, flexi and badass but what happens when you can’t get to a studio? Or you’re away and haven’t got a pole near you? Panic sets in about loosing your strength for pole, forgetting the moves, not having the energy and you make a desperate attempt to find something that resembles a pole to feel like you’ve had a workout!
I caught up with the lovely Sarah Scott to talk about her new online training programme designed specifically for pole dancers….off the pole!
This weekend past, the UK Professional Pole Championships (PPC) took place at The International Centre, Telford. The UK PPC is the first competition in the UK to give professional pole athletes and dancers the opportunity to compete against their peers through three professional categories; Instructor, Professional, and Elite.
As the nights are drawing in, thoughts move to cold winters and wrapping up warm. Personally I love winter…but not for pole training! Cold poles, cold floor, longer warm ups….when all I want to do is just dance! So instead of freezing our peachy bums off, I take this time of year as the perfect excuse to shop for winter warm up wear!
When it comes to what to wear, I really like to think about it, firstly because I am a firm believer of what you wear reflects your personality but also because if you feel good in what you’re wearing, you will feel more confident in yourself which in turn will make you have a better training session (and exactly why shopping is good for the soul!).
Here’s a round up of my favourite warm up pieces for training, and don’t forget at the end of this coming month is Black Friday….perfect excuse to stock up before the nights get even colder!
