You probably saw “pole dancing” and thought about nightclubs and gentlemen’s clubs, but there is a large movement in recent years to get away from that impression and truly see the benefits of using a pole for exercising.
It is a well known fact girls working in these types of nightclubs are toned and in great shape. It comes from the moves they make and the exercise they get from using the pole.
There does not have to be anything lascivious about pole dancing. Instead, you can set your fitness room up to help tone various body parts and feel good about yourself. Added to the benefits you will discover with this type of dancing and exercise is the fun you can have.
Before you begin dancing you will need to find a pole that will work for you. They are sold in fitness shops around the country, as well as online. These poles are easy to set up and remove, in case you want to store your fitness product. Here is a list of some of the benefits you can get from pole dancing:
- You’ll burn a plethora of calories
- Tone your abdominal muscles
- Increase your arm and shoulder strength
- Have well toned legs
- Increase your flexibility
- Builds confidence
- Teaches you how to dance
Pole dancing is for more than women. In fact men have got into some of the exercises because they enjoy learning how to dance. If you are having trouble learning how to limber up your hips, legs, or arms for dancing in a music club pole dancing can help with this.
You learn how to get your hips to move with more freedom, which can translate to any type of dance moves. As your legs, arms and hips become more flexible you will find benefit in other areas of your life. For example, if you enjoy sports the flexibility can help you move a bit faster or with more lithe movements.
Do you like to rock climb? Pole dancing can be another way to get your strength built up in a different manner. Instead of working on a fake wall to climb you can work on building arm strength, while dancing. The next time you encounter a shelf to climb over on a rock wall you may just find your legs have the flexibility to ease over that ledge.
