In the introduction to pole dancing, energetic music inspires beginners through their first spins, lifts, and twirls around one of the gym's many poles. Meanwhile, yoga and sexy stretching classes tone bodies with long, lean muscle, and belly- and chair-dancing sessions equip hips with sultry dance moves while sculpting cores. Polga, one of the studio’s signature classes, takes the sustained postures of traditional yoga from the floor to the pole, building strength and endurance as the vertical support assists with stretching and alignment. One-off classes teach salsa or some of the burlesque art form's sexier moves, from runway struts to single-item stripteases.
FIMB the Stiletto Gym
Carla Mock believes that everybody deserves to look and feel fabulous. When she founded a gym where she could teach her unique combination of yoga, pole fitness, and burlesque, she sought a name that encapsulated her philosophy. That's how she arrived at FIMB, which stands for Fabulous in Mind and Body.
Shining poles run from floor to ceiling in the warmly lit, orange-walled studio, giving students structures to twirl around during pole-fitness classes and sturdy supports to bend between during yoga sessions. Polga—one of Carla's original creations—combines yogic stretching with the upper-body workout of pole dancing. Students use the poles to enhance alignment and perform classic yoga poses, unlike Santa’s elves, who climb the pole to escape gingerbread warriors pillaging the village on their fearsome rocking horses.
