OMYG's dizzying array of female-only classes offers sessions for pole students of all skill levels and a wide variety of 50-minute fitness classes. The Pole Jam class lets newbies sample elements of pole teasing, conditioning, and choreography under the tutelage of owner and founder Stephanie Babines. The schedule brims with other classes, such as Poleitude (Pole Tricks with Attitude), which focuses on technique to help slinky students fine-tune eye-catching poses, transitions, and sexy spins without the risk of injuring themselves.
Students' flabby feather boas will get as much of a workout as their lower bodies in the stiletto-heeled burlesque class, and the fast-paced Bikini Bod class blasts bodies with a surfer's workout—guaranteeing that students will stop getting horrified looks when they wear a bikini to funerals. Customers can achieve an equally intensive workout in one of the belly-dancing or hoop-dancing classes (taught by a certified Hoopnotica instructor). A healthy sampling of yoga, Pilates, Zumba, and other fitness classes is available as well.
The swank studio features five poles, a mirrored stage, and padded cardio flooring to cushion sassy Zumba dance moves and gravity-foiled pole spins. All free weights and other fitness supplies are provided, and a wardrobe of dress-up clothes and accessories lets students try new flirty styles on for size. Dressing rooms feature an arsenal of towels, lotions, perfume, and makeup for students who wish to freshen up or give their voodoo doll a makeover.

Stephanie Babines had to fight to open her pole-fitness studio. The battle pitted her First Amendment rights against zoning regulations, and was featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today when the ACLU took on the lawsuit to get her permit. Stephanie's passion for self-expression has not faded, and today she and her instructors teach dance- and cardio-workout classes six days a week to help ladies of every age and build express themselves and achieve a sense of empowerment.
It's no surprise that Stephanie is serious about her craft. She has trained under the same choreographers who have coached Beyonce, Rihanna, and Britney Spears, and holds certifications in Advanced Pole and Hoopnotica dance. Her studio boasts amenities such as a spa and a dressing room fully stocked with towels and cosmetics. When they aren't twirling from the studio’s five onsite poles, she and her team might be throwing private bachelorette parties or fantasy photo shoots.
