Last night my gym hosted a Pole Fitness showcase. The women who participated are the ones who take the pole classes and they were AMAZING!!!
Most haven't been taking classes for more than a year and it was like seeing Circ du Soliel live and in the front row. The upper body and ab strength were amazing. I can't imagine having the muscle control to flip my body from standing to inverted and then hold by the ankles upside down.
I took my mom with me to see this and now she (at 68) is excited about trying the class. I took the intro class in November when I first started at the gym, but wasn't really excited about the idea of having to wear booty shorts. Now I'm 10 pounds lighter and much stronger, so I'm a bit more open to the idea.
I'll let you know.
