Cheeky Fitness teaches women the saucy spins of pole dancing to encourage fun, flirty fitness. The introductory pole class ($50 value if bought online, $60 walk-in value) settles novices' nerves by acquainting them with pole dancing as exercise, leading them through a body-bending display of basic moves and a complete routine. The pole conditioning class ($75 online value, $90 walk-in value) isn't a pole-dancing course, but rather a core building session that gives dancers the strength to rip the pole from the floor and craft it into a whimsical charm bracelet. A jump rope and sneakers are required for the conditioning class. Check the online schedule for class times and dates.
