Sometimes, late at night, firemen slip into heels and dance with their poles, spinning, dipping, and stripping away cumbersome fireproof coats and burdensome notions of masculinity. With today's Groupon, you get a fireman's acrobatic workout with twice as much confidence: for $20, you get four classes in pole dancing, Zumba, Pilates, and more at Oh My You're Gorgeous in Mars (a $60 value).
OMYG's plethora of classes offers sessions for pole students of all skill levels and a wide variety of 50-minute fitness classes. The Pole Jam class lets newbies try a little bit of everything offered at OMYG under the tutelage of owner and founder Stephanie Babines. Other classes, such as Poleitude (pole tricks with attitude), focus on technique to help slinky students fine-tune eye-catching poses, transitions, and sexy spins without the risk of injuring themselves. Your flabby feather boa will get as much of a workout as your lower body in the stiletto-heeled burlesque class, and the fast-paced Bikini Bod class blasts bodies with a surfer's workout—guaranteeing that you'll stop getting horrified looks when you wear a bikini to funerals. Achieve an equally intensive workout in one of the belly-dancing or hoop-dancing classes (taught by a certified Hoopnotica instructor). A healthy sampling of yoga, Pilates, Zumba, and more are available as well.

Stephanie Babines had to fight to open her pole-fitness studio. The battle pitted her First Amendment rights against zoning regulations, and was featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today when the ACLU took on the lawsuit to get her permit. Stephanie's passion for self-expression has not faded, and today she and her instructors teach dance- and cardio-workout classes six days a week to help ladies of every age and build express themselves and achieve a sense of empowerment.
It's no surprise that Stephanie is serious about her craft. She has trained under the same choreographers who have coached Beyonce, Rihanna, and Britney Spears, and holds certifications in Advanced Pole and Hoopnotica dance. Her studio boasts amenities such as a spa and a dressing room fully stocked with towels and cosmetics. When they aren't twirling from the studio’s five onsite poles, she and her team might be throwing private bachelorette parties or fantasy photo shoots.
