From there, equipment and guidance help each client reach whatever heights they're after.

Programs that focus on endurance in running, swimming, and cycling pair with Pilates work and basketball courts to develop well-rounded regimens. There's also classic equipment?cardio machines and free weights?offsetting a selection of less-than-traditional equipment?an artificial rock wall which lets clients build upper-body strength while practicing lines for their Cliffhanger: The Musical audition.

Though the women at Corporate Pole mean business, they can't dress in business clothing. Slacks and blazers would just restrict them from demonstrating acrobatic twirls and inversions on the pole. They teach these techniques and more to female students during beginner, intermediate, and advanced pole-dancing classes, while emphasizing the importance of camaraderie and self-confidence.

These values are also stressed during yoga lessons, during which students can hone their flexibility and Piloxing classes that combine Pilates stretches with boxing jabs. Other classes include Zumba and belly-dancing classes where students can learn how to move their hips quickly while keeping their navels firmly in place.
