Pole & Chair Dance Aerobics

OR "Why I Will Be Sore in the Morning" OR "I Have a Whole New Respect...."



So, Monday night I had an annual Christmas dinner w/ some friends. One friend gushed about a new aerobics class. Intrigued...I asked her to tell me more. In a few minutes she had me convinced...

So, I called the number and asked about the schedule. The location is a bit of a drive for me to attend a class during the week, but Saturday offered both the chair dance and pole aerobics class. I could attend both back to back (a few of her students do).

I LOVED IT! The chair dance in particular. At one time or another, we incorporated great music, feather boas, fake money, and high heels....

Have I mentioned that I have a whole new respect for the ladies who do this for a living? Sure, I think we realize that it takes a certain level of athleticism, but geez....I don't think I realized just how much.

I'm gonna be soooooooooooooooo sore tomorrow. I think I convinced myself that it wasn't going to be that intense of a workout...Afterall, how could it beat 5k(+) training or zumba or global soul? It was a WORKOUT! But, it was a great challenge and a GREAT way to spice up a work out.

She's a little too far out for me to add the classes regularly, but I will take her Intro to Pole Fitness 3 week workshop. And I think I will try to take a chair dancing class once a month or so on Saturdays...

If you are in the KC area check her out here...Classes are reasonable $6 for chair dancing and $12 for pole fitness.

I've looked for classes like that in my area and the closest i found was Atlanta. Sounds like fun and can't wait to see your results!

I know of one other person who's taken this class and she said that it was a good workout too.

I'm afraid that I would lose interest as soon as the high heels came out...

I'm sooooo jealous I've been wanting to take pole dancing classes for a while now!

@ June....I loved this class! It was so much fun... As soon as one comes your way, check it out. I may never be able to go down the pole upside down like some of the other girls, but hopefully I can do a few tricks..

@ Drea..The workout was killer...It hurts when I laugh...my core is so sore (along with my arms & legs)....The heels were optional...Just for one song...

@ the Princess...I so love your user name...You must find a class in your area! You'd love it...I was so much fun....
