What You'll Get
Before elevators, high-rise residents staved off inclinations to stare at descending floor numbers by performing elaborate spins as they slid down telephone poles. Pay homage to a simpler time with today’s Groupon to Pole Fitness Studio. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get one pole-dancing class (up to a $30 value).
- For $28, you get two pole-dancing classes (up to a $60 value).<p>
Pole Fitness Studio’s 11 experienced instructors lead students of all levels in fun, vertically inclined pole-dancing classes to shape up physiques. Seventeen poles play supporting roles as dancercizers whirl around during each 55-minute class session. Choose from Levels 1–7 from the schedule, which includes Intro/Teaser Pole Dancing, a Level 1 Flirting class that teaches 20 beginner moves, and the Level 7 Queen class, which combines all previous learning into a strength-testing and heart-racing routine. For the two-class option, choose to attend two separate classes or bring a friend or a conjoined twin to share one class.
Owner Fawnia Dietrich—renowned as one of the world’s first pole-dance instructors—and her talented crew of instructors emphasize a supportive environment as they teach basics, expert moves, and firehouse-pole etiquette. No matter what experience level, Pole Fitness Studio can add spins and tricks to any fitness ninja’s arsenal of pole moves while offering an incredible full-body workout that builds confidence and muscle tone, as well as strengthens diplomatic relationships with pole-people.

About Pole Fitness Studio
Pole Fitness Studio owner and operator Fawnia Dietrich is a pioneer of modern pole-dancing fitness. She cut her teeth as a professional exotic dancer, learning the sultry art as she went along, like all the other dancers. She wondered why there wasn’t a place to learn these difficult moves and was motivated to start teaching. Soon after, she opened her own pole-dancing studio, something not common to the world of 1994, much like time-traveling hovercrafts. Fawnia has continued on as a force in the industry, producing the first instructional pole-dance video in 1998—followed by six more videos—and creating the pole-dance instructor-certification course. Thanks to her chiseled physique, she has also been featured in three spreads in Muscle & Fitness magazine.
She now leads a team of instructors in teaching a variety of flirty fitness styles, including burlesque, pole-, lap-, chair-, floor-, and dance classes. Each 55-minute class takes place in their spacious studio, where 17 poles stand ready to hold ladies aloft as they spin and practice complex inversions. An additional 11 poles can be found downstairs, should more space be necessary. Beyond the steamy dance classes, the instructors also helm more traditional fitness classes such as cardio kickboxing, salsa, yoga, ballet, go-go hip-hop and boot camp classes..
