Pole-based fitness is more effective than 1920s pole-sitting, more energizing than pole-vaulting, and more sensual than polenta. Give this inspired routine a month-long spin with today's deal: for $50, you get a pass good for 30 days of unlimited drop-in classes at Fitness With a Twist on the South Side (a $95 value). Class options are largely pole-related, but other classes such as yoga, sculpting, and belly dancing are also available.
Classes are offered for inspired ladies of all levels. Friendly and certified instructors are charged with leading the pack in training. Everyone is welcome and made to feel comfortable even if they haven't had their hands on a pole since they were a junior firefighter. There are beginners' classes to gain pole familiarity and learn basic moves before seamlessly melding with the metal in fine Alex Mack fashion. More advanced dancers and those already well versed in the art of the pole can drop into a variety of specialized classes, such as pole power and sculpt, intermediate inversions, and cardio cabaret pole and chair class. Check out the schedule for upcoming dates, times, and specifics of each class. You can choose from any class marked as drop-in on the calendar.
Harness the power of your body to build confidence and muscle tone. Combine elements of ballet, yoga, and striptease (though you won't be shedding clothes in your class) to strengthen your core and keep you limber. 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 and a confident saunter.

Fitness With a Twist has moved in the last year, but a Citysearcher has been to both locations and gives it four stars, and one satisfied customer left a testimonial on the website:

Fitness With a Twist
Dedicated to helping ladies get in shape, the staff of certified instructors at Fitness With a Twist lead body-sculpting sessions designed to boost women's self-esteem and sultry quotients. During pole fitness classes, the instructors divulge pole-dancing techniques, including tantalizing spins and core-strengthening transitions from pole to floor. For an emphasis on sensual choreography, students don a pair of heels and ankle-length burlap sacks while dancing through burlesque-style routines with the help of a chair. In addition to flirt-enhancing fitness sessions, the studio also offers boot camps, Zumba, and full-body toning classes, as well as social gatherings for gals—including birthday bashes and bachelorette parties.
