Modern pole-based exercise is more effective than 1920s pole sitting, less risky than pole-vaulting, and more sensual than polenta. Unleash your inner exhibitionist with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a five-class punch card at Aradia Fitness (a $50 value).
Aradia Fitness provides a welcoming, supportive environment for women of every age and fitness level to explore their sexy side while simultaneously subjecting all sides to a mélange of total-body cardio workouts. Pole Dancing and Sensual Movement classes, such as Poleflow and Lapdance Teaser, have foundations in ballet, yoga, and striptease (though students won't be shedding any leotards or turtlenecks in class). Slinky muscles stand at attention in Aradia’s Booty Camp class, and Zumba adds musical flavour as well as core strength, muscle toning, and increased flexibility. As the seductress embedded deep within makes her way to the surface, you'll engage rarely used muscles, sometimes resulting in day-after pangs of soreness, sudden Facebook friending of said muscles, and a confident new saunter. Participants need only gym- or yoga-like attire and bare feet to make their first firm step toward becoming music-video vixens or reverse-firefighters.
Aradia Fitness founders Christine Boyer and Tracy Gray used to cart a portable pole to different gyms in Tracy's Dodge Neon. Though acquaintances scoffed at their idea of teaching pole dance to inspire confidence and build muscle, the duo was determined to make the art available to everyday women. Thankfully, they had the business expertise and exercise know-how to back up their venture: Christina, a Pilates and yoga instructor, stood by pole fitness as a full-body conditioning method, and Tracy's experience as a figure skater and fitness instructor brought pizzazz to the routines. The pair's classes quickly sold out wherever that Dodge Neon went.
They've come a long way since then, having been featured in Canadian Business and Elle for their growing pole-fitness franchise. At Aradia Fitness studios throughout North America, guests of all backgrounds can practice the empowering pole spins, cardio dance steps, and stiletto heel swordplay of Christine and Tracy's curriculum. Every class and private party strives to connect pupils with their sensual side, bringing self-esteem and sinuous moves to spotlight.
