What type of people attend pole classes?

Pole fitness is suitable for all ages, sizes, abilities and fitness levels. It's natural to feel a little intimidated attending your first session - remember, everyone in your class was a beginner once, and our instructors will provide a fun and welcoming atmosphere to get you hooked!

I'm not very athletic,flexible or co-ordinated, will I be able to do pole?

At Dynamite we welcome everyone - regardless of dance experience, flexibility, athletic ability or fitness level. Being able to support your body weight and having a little coordination will help, but remember - these are the skills you will learn during your course. As with everything, it will come more naturally to some people that others - but everyone can do it! We all learn in different ways, at different speeds.

What are the benefits of pole fitness?

  • Burn calories - around 300 per class
  • Sculpt and tone your muscles - especially your arms and abdominals
  • Increase your flexibility
  • Improve coordination, grace, style and dance ability
  • Build your confidence and self-esteem
  • Have a great workout in a fun, social environment!

What should I wear/bring?

Bare arms and legs are essential for gripping onto the pole, so we suggest shorts and either a t-shirt or vest. We tend to go barefoot, but dance shoes are also an option. Try not to moisturise on the day of your lesson as this can affect your grip on the pole. You may also want to bring a towel and a bottle of water as it can get pretty sweaty!

How to I book/pay?

To book go to the timetable and booking tab, and go to the class you wish to book onto. On your first booking you will be asked to provide an email address and phone number, however this is purely so that we can contact you if need be. You will also be asked to fill in a questionnaire.

Please read the information on the class you are booking onto, as our instructors are self-employed some classes (i.e. Beginners Course) ask for a payment on booking through a bank transfer. Apart from this, classes are to be paid by Paypal or in cash before your class.

Unfortunately, we do not have card payment facilities at the studio.

How old do I have to be to do pole?

Due to insurance we are unable to teach anyone under the age of sixteen, but there is no upper age limit

I'm new, what do I do?

You want to start a class but not sure what to do, that's fine, it's quite straight forward! If you want to try pole but are a complete beginner have a look at our 'Timetable and Class Scheduler' tabs, any classes that are suitable for you will be marked beginner!

Just log on with a few details so that we can contact you, and book in.

Your instructor will probably notice that you are new, but you could just send us an email to let us know, especially if you are nervous or have any issues that you want us to know about beforehand.
