Pole dancing offers a pole-based exercise more effective than 1920s pole sitting, more energizing than pole vaulting, and more sensual than polenta. Go for a spin with this Groupon.
- $20 for three pole-fitness classes (a $75 value)
Though the studio hosts a variety of classes, those new to pole fitness may want to start in the introductory Pole Virgin class, which teaches students a number off basic maneuvers, poses, and techniques needed for more advanced classes.
Exotic Workouts believes getting fit doesn't require spending hours in a gym and performing monotonous exercises. Through their pole-fitness classes, which range from beginner's to advanced sessions, and their alternative-fitness classes, such as Booty Aerobics and Sexi Flexi, they help ladies burn calories and strengthen muscles without lifting a single weight. That's not to say the studio's workouts aren't challenging. Classes such as Pole Kitten require students to suspend themselves in the air simply with their thigh muscles, and Sexy Chair Fitness & Pole combine a variety of exercises that test students' leg and ab muscles for a full 60 minutes. If the studio and a traditional gym do share one quality, it's the confidence that they instill in their clients. Exotic Workouts members come away with a boost in their self-esteem, making it easier for them to confront the banana spider that's taken over their living room.
