Can anyone do pole fitness?
Yes, there is no limit or pre-requisite for pole fitness. Pole exercise is extremely physical and uses muscles that you will not have used before and therefore if you are not warmed up; muscle damage, strains and injury can occur. Before using a pole it is mandatory to warm up and, after use, cool down. It is highly recommended that before you use your pole you purchase a suitable DVD to learn the basic moves or attend pole fitness classes. Never try moves beyond your ability without an instructor. If at any time whilst using your pole you feel uncomfortable, your muscles hurt, or you are short of breath – take a break. Always rest between moves & exercise sensibly, if you experience any health issues, seek medical advice. But if you have any concerns, please contact your doctor.

Can I adjust the height of the pole on my X-STAGE?
While the X-STAGE pole can not be made taller, it can be made shorter by using an NE extension.
To work out which extension you will require, follow this formula:
Your floor-to-ceiling height in millimetres – 1500mm – 135mm and then round down to the nearest extension (500mm, 750mm or 1000mm).
e.g. 2500mm – 1500mm – 135mm = 875mm (round down to 750mm)

What’s the difference between each pole finish?
Chrome – The industry standard finish and a good all-rounder for all levels of skill/experience. High grade steel poles are coated in Chrome and polished to a high finish.
Stainless Steel – A great alternative to Chrome or Brass and very hard wearing. Stainless Steel poles are polished to a mirror finish. Also good for polers with nickel allergies and ideal for commercial environments (studios and gyms) with a lot of polers!
Brass – Great in hotter climates as the grip factor increases with the ambient temperature and the perfect choice for polers with nickel allergies.
Titanium Gold – Chrome poles are taken and electronically coated with the finish for an enhanced grip.
Powder Coat (Black, Pink & White) – Useful for people who struggle to grip standard metal poles. Very high grip factor! Steel poles are powder coated and baked to seal the finish. Available in black, white and hot pink!
Silicone (Black & Pink) – The ultimate easy grip pole! Minimal skin to pole contact needed. Steel poles have a silicone sleeve attached to the surface of the pole. Available in 45mm pole diameter only.
Chrome – 40mm and 45mm – Steel core with Chrome coating applied
Stainless Steel – 40mm and 45mm – Highly polished Stainless Steel pole
Brass – 40mm and 45mm –Brass tube.
Titanium Gold – 40mm and 45mm – Steel core with Chrome coating that is then electronically treated to give the Gold finish with additional grip
Powder Coat (Black, White and Pink) – 40mm and 45mm – Steel core with a powder coat layer baked on
Silicone (Black and Pink) – 45mm – Steel core with a 5mm thick silicone sheath glued to the pole
